With an imposing façade, soaring staircases and Chesterfield armchairs, York's Grange Hotel is full of character and flourishes reminiscent of a bygone era. The Grade II-listed property dates back to 1829 and is only a 5-minute walk from the city walls. The Daily Telegraph says it's a "pretty unbeatable" location.

York's Chocolate Story is also around 10 minutes' walk away. Visitors can take a fully guided tour to discover the part chocolate has played in York's history. Other attractions such as York Minster, the National Railway Museum, Clifford's Tower and the Jorvik Viking Centre are all within a 20-minute walk.

Further afield, the impressive Castle Howard house and estate is a 35-minute drive, while the North York Moors National Park and the seaside town of Scarborough are just over an hour away.

The hotel's Ivy Restaurant has two AA Rosettes and offers "fine dining in a lavishly decorated environment" (The AA Hotel Guide 2018). The restaurant, which serves classic food with a French influence, is in the cellars of the hotel.

Friendly helpful staff. Very good dinner and breakfast. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom
Other Comments
Our room was on the front and was very hot, despite the heating not being on. Impossible to sleep with the window open, due to traffic noise. A fan was provided, but this was just as noisy! Hence we slept badly both nights. Would request a room at the back if returning.

The Staff and the position of the hotel for walking into York
Other Comments
Breakfast and Dining area in the basement was not very good Eating the evening meal in this area made it more like having a bar meal in a pub rather than a 4* restaurant.

Standard room is very small, describing it in square feet doesn't really help when you are booking.
