Reviewed 29 April 2012

No sooner had we arrived in the car park when Dave (porter/conceige) appeared and carried our luggage for us. Staff were cheerful and we were given a large comfortable room. Bed was so comfortable that I had the best 4 nights sleep for a long time. Our friends in a nearby room even had a built in flat screen TV at the end of their bath. We stayed for 4 days under a "package" for DB and B. The meals were taken in the Ivy Brasserie restaurant which was smart but unpretentious. The food however was exceptional, beautifully cooked and attractively presented.The Restaurant Manager made us feel so welcome and looked after us exceedingly well.
The weather during our stay was awful and we returned twice to the hotel on different days rather wet! However we were met with a warm friendly greeting by the proactive staff. The hotel is only a short walk to the Minster and shops etc so we were able to leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere.
My only disappointment in the hotel was the lack of any decent beers in the bar but all things considered I can live with that. Good selection of wines though.
I was impressed with the hotel and staff and these days it takes a lot to impress me. Our friends loved the hotel and really enjoyed the stay. We are now planning a return visit.

Room Tip: We had a Premier King with full ensuite which was towards the back of the hotel. It was comfortable...

Brilliant hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were fantastic and the meal we had in the Ivy restaurant was outstanding. We stayed in a premier king which was a bit smaller than expected but plenty big enough with a large clean well-appointed en-suite and a comfortable bed. It is in a good position, just 5 minutes walk from the centre and 5-10mins taxi ride from the station. We will definately be staying here again.

Excellent hotel. Excellent service. Excellent restaurant. We had a small double, which was small but adequate and well equipped.

Room Tip: Try not to book a room behind reception as the door kept banging.

This is a well run hotel and an excellent place to stay for a business or leisure trip to York. Staff are proactive in their approach to service which is refreshing. Our room was actually a bit disappointing when I read about some of the other rooms on offer. However, it was clean, well organised and the bed was brilliantly comfortable. Breakfast was v good. and people we met who live in York all commented on the excellence of the restaurant for dinner. We went out so I can't comment.

Room Tip: Ask for advice on the rooms - tell them what you want. Wish I had - was too short of time checking...

I have just returned from this hotel, ideally situated for town, parking car also wasn't an issue! Hotel staff really friendly especially the blonde girl who works in reception.... Sorry don't know her name!
Breakfast was lovely, plenty of selection but only downfall for us was we booked premier double but was disappointed with what we received, wasn't anything special! I had booked it as a surprise and felt a bit downhearted when seeing it.

The hotel is very nice, old fashion, the rooms are a good size and comfortable. Position to city centre great, but the only thing to be aware of is parking as it is very limited, with having a restaurant open to the general public. If you can not get a space it is the Public car park at £25 a day and a few hundred meters away, which for older people like myself is not good.

Dear Guests

Thank you for you for posting the review. I am delighted to read the positive comments you made and for the sake of clarity any possible guests reading this review please do not pay for 2 days in the public car park as I am very confident that during your stay car park spaces in our car park do become available on regular basis. On road parking next to the hotel is also available for short term parking.

Hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again to The Grange in the very near future

Best wishes

George Briffa

Stayed at the Grange Hotel in York UK for 4 days for a conference at the University of York. It was a very beautiful hotel and what made the stay so wonderful was the very helpful and friendly staff. The hot breakfast at the hotel restaurant was excellent every morning. Peferct location and only a 5-10 minute walk from the Minster. I had a package mailed to me at the hotel and did not arrive before I left and they have mailed it to to my home in Canada. Would definetely stay there again. thanks for a great stay!
