During this current “staycation” period we have noticed that many of our guests would like to check-in early and although we would love to welcome all our guests as soon as possible, sometimes an early check-in may not be feasible.
Following the COVID-19 outbreak we have introduced stringent hygiene protocols which subsequently means that rooms take longer to service. Therefore, whilst an early check-in may not be possible, our team are happy to store your luggage to ensure you can use our facilities or explore the city of York at leisure.
In order to help in such variable times, we are delighted to our assist our guests by offering a flexible cancellation policy. Reservations can be cancelled up until 4pm on the day prior to arrival. This is non-applicable for group or meeting & events bookings.
If you’re looking for a special gift for the special someone in your life then a gift voucher for The Grand is a superb present to give. We have a great selection of vouchers available covering all of our services.
The Grand was originally built in 1906 as a ‘Palace Of Business’ for one of the most powerful railway companies in Edwardian England. With no expense spared in the pursuit of luxury, The Grand now boasts some of the finest meeting rooms, event spaces and conference facilities in York.
Our sweeping staircases are made for sumptuous photography and our stunning Edwardian architecture and original features are guaranteed to impress.
From intimate weddings to grand affairs, we have two beautiful rooms to conduct ceremonies and host wedding breakfasts, in addition to elegantly appointed bedrooms to accommodate your guests.
Escape the city in our secluded, tranquil spa. Housed in the atmospheric former vaults, our expert therapists offer luxury treatments alongside our indoor pool, aromatic steam room, nordic dry sauna and relaxation lounge. Be sure to stay at one of the best York spa hotels in the North Yorkshire region.
