Visit York’s finest hotel – The Grand, York

Built in 1906 as the North Eastern Railway Headquarters, The Grand, York boasts a stately character with sweeping stone staircases, original wood panelling, parquet flooring and acres of marble.

The extravagance and grandeur is all a reminder of the building’s former status as an icon of the golden age of railway travel. The building underwent an extensive refurbishment and expansion in 2018, increasing its bedroom capacity from 107 rooms to 207 rooms with original elements paying homage to its former purpose as an iconic railway headquarters.

Now reborn as a hotel, but retaining its original splendour with its intricate stonework and marble detailing, the award-winning hotel features beautiful public spaces, extraordinarily spacious rooms, a vibrant restaurant serving traditional British favourites, two bars, an outdoor terrace and courtyard ideal for drinking and dining, meetings and conference rooms, an executive lounge, a spa and a state-of-the-art cookery school.

Situated next to the ancient walls that enclose the city centre, and with views of York Minster, the hotel is located at a historical crossroads and offers a unique approach to inclusive luxury. A destination for memorable experiences and unforgettable service, The Grand delivers the finest Yorkshire hospitality, from locally sourced food and beverage to bespoke experiential packages.

The knowledgeable Concierge team at the hotel are able to provide guests with insight into York’s hidden gems and organise access to a range of the region’s top attractions. Although the hotel already offers various experiences such as private city tours, over the next year The Grand plans to build on its experiential offering by introducing other new and exciting options situated in both the hotel and the wider city.

Following the covid-19 outbreak, as part of the hotel’s Care Commitment, the team have implemented extra precautions to ensure the health, safety and well-being of guests and colleagues. The Grand’s website provides an extensive overview of the actions taken to allow a safe and comfortable environment all.
