A quiet owner operated hotel located on a tree lined cul-de-sac just ten minutes level walk from York minster, the City walls, and the City centre beyond. Parking (7GBP per car per overnight stay) available on-site. Wi-Fi available throughout free. The Groves is made up of three separate buildings which surround the courtyard car park. York House and The Cottage are located to the rear of the main building. All bedrooms refurbished 2009/2010. The main building was built in the late 1800's and still retains many original features such as the splendid reception staircase, leaded windows, and many of the original wood features. The hotel provides free breakfast to its guests. The hotel has no smoking policy. Please note The Groves does not have a lift - there are a small number of ground floor rooms but please request these BEFORE booking!

Good Value and Service

My wife and I stayed at The Groves for four nights at the beginning of October. The staff are friendly, the rooms clean, and the location is convenient. We were greeted on arrival and every morning. All of the staff were polite and friendly. The room and the building were very clean. Often hotels in old buildings such as The Groves aren't so clean. Not true here. Our room was spotless. The hotel is located about half of a block down a small street which is off of a main street. The walled city is a short and pleasant walk. The hotel has a parking lot that is free for guest. It is small and parking can be tight but it worked out fine for us even arriving late. There is a small pub in the hotel that is staffed by the receptionist. Both times my wife and I were in it, we were the only people there. Even the bar tender left after getting us a drink so it was absolutely quiet but for us. There is no food and a very limited selection of ales. In a pinch, it works for a pint or two but it's not a destination or the kind of place to spend a few hours. The hotel is an old building. The stairways are tight and the rooms relatively small. It is quaint and we liked it; however, it is not modern and convenient. The stairways are a bit difficult to navigate and the floors creaked in some places. There were no electrical outlets near the nightstand, and the bathroom quite small, etc. The bottom line: The Groves is comfortable, clean, quiet, the location is good, and the staff are friendly. I will stay at The Groves again. Oh, did I mention it is a good value?

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

There is an Italian restaurant in town that is great! Delrio is about a mile walk or a short taxi ride from the hotel. I recommend it. Rustique is a French restaurant that was highly recommended but our food was mediocre. I'd skip Rustique and go to Delrios...but call first because you may need a reservation.

Great value!!

I would gladly recommend this hotel. All the staff were super friendly and very helpful. Cleanliness is usually at the top of my list and the Groves was in tip top shape, pride in ownership is obvious when the owner is on premises doing maintenance. The full English breakfast was a good start to the day. Ten minute easy walk to York Minister made the location perfect.

A great place to stay in York

I really enjoyed this guest house. My room was large and very nicely done. The old home was lovely and had a lot of character to it. The breakfast was excellent. It was on a nice quiet street. It was a bit of a walk to the city centre, but otherwise everything was wonderful.

Great place to stay

Lovely place to stay when visiting York. About a 20 minute flat walk to city centre shops and cathedral. Good breakfast, friendly service. Hotel was full when we visited and car park was also a bit tight when full. Our room was second floor and there is no lift... Make sure you request ground floor room when booking if it's needed... I forgot! Great place, a larger than average b&b.

Visit the treasurers house round the back of the cathedral, owned by the national trust and worth a visit. Good for lunch or tea and cake!
