Welcome to The Grand, York's first and only AA five-star rated hotel. This stunning hotel opened in May 2010 following the extensive refurbishment of the former North Eastern Railway headquarters – one of York’s most iconic Edwardian buildings. Originally constructed in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’ for what was then one of the most powerful public companies in the country, today it is the region’s leading luxury hotel and has established a global reputation for its first-class service, stylish bedrooms and unique historic atmosphere. Following a £15 million refurbishment in 2017, The Grand now boasts 207 individually designed bedrooms, a beautiful spa to relax, a destination restaurant, a cocktail bar and meeting & event spaces. There is something for everybody to enjoy - we look forward to welcoming you soon!

The Grand has the friendly but discreet service, and comfortable luxury one would hope from a 5 star hotel. Excellent dinner in the lovely restaurant. Its location very good for walking to the city centre, or the station, but it was quiet at night.

What a fantastic hotel. A short walk from the train station and right by the city walls this hotel is a delight from start to finish. The service is impeccable, very warm, courteous and with great attention to detail - nothing is too much trouble. I particularly appreciated the concierge who showed me to my room telling me the history of the hotel and pointing out the original features. The room was a great size, very spacious, including a large bathroom with Milton brown products. Super comfortable bed and a fantastic nights sleep. I’d asked for a quiet room and they certainly delivered. The 1906 bar had a good selection of cocktails for pre dinner drinks and you’re only a short walk from the multitude of restaurants in the city. Breakfast was a sumptuous affair with everything you could possibly want to eat including the best croissants. I didn’t get to use the spa facilities or the cookery school which are also on site. My only wish is that I couldn’t have stayed longer.

The Grand is really an impressive hotel, one of the nicest I have stayed in. Our room was huge, comfortable and the communal areas were well presented and opulent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially the door staff, who were full of helpful tips to make our visit to York even better. The breakfast was good, well organised and efficient, and we had some drinks in the evening on the terrace which was great. I have to deducted a point however. It might seem like a little thing, but if people don't mention it, it won't get changed and doing the right thing for the planet is more important than having a bedside light on ready when you come into a room. The only thing that annoyed me a little was that each room had a kill switch for the lights. The idea is that you put your key card in a slot when you come into the room and all the lights come on, when you leave the room you are forced to take your card out and all the lights go off. Perfect - saving energy will help us reduce our negative impact on the environment.... only a blank card had been placed into this kill switch meaning all this good work was undone and our room lights were wastefully on all the time. To make matters worse, we turned the lights off when we went out, but came back to the room in the evening to find the turn down service had turned the lights on again, such a waste of electricity. Clearly at some point The Grand realised that installing these switches was good for the environment. I don't know what could have made them decide to abandon it and force the lights into staying on.

We love the Grand. Have visited several times. Luxurious and pampered is how we always feel. There was a problem with the room being cold but even this didn't really detract from the visit. Two people stood out - Ned and Wayne. Ned was outstanding in the restaurant - a real asset to the hotel. Wayne as a concierge was a marvel. Great food and great service . We will be back.
