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!
