Originally built in 1906 as a 'Palace of Business' for one of the most powerful railway companies in England, the aptly named Grand is York's only five-star hotel. The solid Edwardian facade hints at the quality that lies within: high-end service, a fabulous range of eateries, a spa and pool, and commodious, comfortable bedrooms. A perfect base for exploring historic York, The Grand is just a short walk to the Minster and a stone's throw from the medieval walls and river.

All suites and rooms are spacious and stylish, from the elegant penthouse suite with its views across the York skyline to the crisp, uncluttered classic rooms with marble-decked bathrooms and Egyptian cotton bed linen. Throughout the Grand, stone staircases, parquet floors and heavy dark-wood doors are counterbalanced with pastel shades and furniture enshrouded in soft velvet.

After a day pounding the cobbled streets, enjoy a soak in the Grand's tranquil spa, housed deep down in the former vaults. Expert therapists offer luxury treatments alongside the indoor pool, aromatic steam room, nordic dry sauna and relaxation lounge.

Sample some of Yorkshire's finest ales at the 1906 Bar before taking your seat at The Rise Restaurant for some modern British cuisine. The open kitchen and spacious setting allows for an immersive and social dining experience.
