York Holiday Reviews

York Minster

The city of York is easily one of the UK's most popular short break destinations. Thousands of visitors flock to see this picturesque city each year for its fascinating history, fabulous shopping and a whole wealth of great attractions too. Our superb range of York hotels offer an ideal retreat after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. The medieval city is compact and easy to explore, the gorgeous York Minster, Clifford's Tower, the famous cobbled street The Shambles and the Jorvik Viking Centre are all within easy walking distance of most central hotels in York.

  • York Minster sits at the very heart of York and dominates the city skyline. One of Britain's best medieval cathedrals, highlights of the Minster include the spectacular Heart of Yorkshire window, the Norman foundations in the crypt and the 275 step ascent to the top of the tower.
  • Lying just a short drive from the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, York provides the perfect base to explore stunning North Yorkshire scenery. Walk the North Sea coast from Filey to Scarborough or tackle Yorkshire's three peaks near Skipton.
  • York boasts a thriving food and drink culture which includes many fine restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes. Try Skosh's small plates or street food in the Shambles Market. A hotbed of the craft beer revolution, York has two breweries within the city walls in Brew York and York Brewery, a visit to their taprooms is not to be missed.
Our York hotels benefit from great transport links and the city is an excellent choice for a rail break. Ideally placed on the high speed East Coast Mainline, York is a mere two hours from London and only two and a half hours from Edinburgh. A city with a proud heritage, the terrific National Railway Museum is one of York's busiest attractions or, to add something extra to your stay, be sure to take a scary York Ghost Walk for a short break with a difference.

Great getaway

Stay Date: 08/04/18, a customer aged 45-64 from Leven who stayed at 5* The Grand, York in York wrote this review.

The Grand Hotel & Spa is in an excellent location just on the other side of the medieval wall across from the train station, 2 minutes and you're there. The hotel staff from all departments were See More  Read more information excellent and attentive, nothing too much trouble. We were booked in a twin room which was much larger than the norm, with a nice layout with table and chairs to eat from which we did one night gettinga pizza from room service, very tasty and freshly made. There was also a separate bathroom and toilet which helped in the mornings. The breakfast area was well laid out and even on mornings when itwas busy you didn't feel crowded or rushed. Our trip was in April and breakfast was served from 6.30 till 10.30 so that was a good spread of time allowing those who needed to leave early still get foodand those on a more leisurely timetable to relax and enjoy. On our arrival day, we went to the local Sainsbury's which was just around the corner and not too far from the hotel, and brought back somesandwiches to eat in the room. There is a nice bar/lounge in the hotel which serves light food, but a bit expensive. Just to say that what is served there can also be ordered for the room. All in allan excellent 3 night break, and you can go at your own pace. This was our first time visiting York from Scotland and found the convenience of the train great and we will definitely be making futuretrips. And would also highly recommend this hotel.   Collapse  Hide
