About Hotel The Grand York

A five-star hotel inside the medieval walls of York, the Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa is set in the former head office to the North Eastern Railway company.

Across seven room types, from Classic Double to the Penthouse, the Cedar Court Grand aims to charm and service in equal parts with Molton Brown bath products, free Wi-Fi, a turn down service and bathroom under-floor heating in all rooms.

What was formerly the railway company’s vault is now The Cedar Court Grand’s spa. Multiple treatments are on offer, from facials, to pre-natal treatments. Hotel functions staff specialise in weddings.

Hudson’s Restaurant’s dinner menu offers hearty British meals including an ‘off the grill’ option. The Ruinart Terrace serves fine wines, ales and spirits along with a light meal menu, while inside there’s the cozy Whisky Lounge.

On the edge of the Memorial Gardens and alongside the historic wall, the Cedar Court Grand is a short walk to town centre.

Cold Room

The Cedar Court Grand, set in a historic monument, has done its best to accommodate guests with modern features, but the most common complaint about the hotel is the cold rooms If you feel the cold, perhaps ask the room to be supplied with extra bedding.

Parking Prices

Due to a lack of parking on premises, the hotel must park guests’ cars in the neighbouring NCP or rented spaced in front of the hotel, both options incurs a charge to the hotel, handed down to the guest.

Over-Priced Food

Many guests found the food and service within Hudson’s worthwhile but some thought the food was over-priced for the quality served up.

Value For Money

While the majority of guests were satisfied with their five-star stay at the Cedar Court Grand, some guests were left questioning the overall value for money and the additional charges for each service.
