Fantastic place to stay in York

We stayed for 3 nights during our trip around Britain, while we were visiting York and Yorkshire. It was a fantastic place to stay, the room was spacious and comfortable. The staff here were very friendly and helpful. It is a short walk (5 - 10 minutes) to the city centre. Point to note: there is no lift but assistance was provided carrying bags up to the second floor.

York is an expensive place to stay!

A delightful B&B/hotel which is a 20 minute walk from York station and the centre. On the plus side, the location is very peaceful. York B&Bs/hotels seem grossly over-priced but with 7 milliON VISITORS A year they can get away with it!

uncomfortable and unfriendly

Me and my boyfriend came to thi hotrl for a valentines day stay and out of all our stays around the uk this was the worst. Dont get me wrong the room was average and the hotel was in an ok situation but not the best but the staff were so unfriendly. When we got there our room wasnt ready so they sent us away when showing us to the room they wasnt very talkative and when we went for a drink in the bar the staff got us a drink and just left us didnt come back to see if we were ok or wanted another drink it was just so uncomfortable. The breakfast was the best part about the hotel.

Fantastic place to stay

This was our first stay in a bnb and we loved it. The staff were very helpful as soon as we arrived, by giving us a handy little map of York and showed us where all the popular sites were. The room was always warm including the brand new bathroom and the breakfast was a delight. Being from Australia my sister and myself were a long way from home, but here we felt at home. Thanks trip adviser for recommending the groves we loved it.

Definitely 3*

Comfortable, traditionally decorated rooms. One of the three main breakfast options had run out of fruit salad. Said I was happy to wait, then told it would take half an hour to prepare. So, I chose something else, but that is not 4* service, and I said so in a subsequent review. Management response to the review was rude and factually incorrect (when they weren't around to witness the interaction), calling me sour when I said it wasn't up to scratch! Clearly, variable customer experience.

The Groves is a very nice small

The Groves is a very nice small hotel. We spent 2 nights in July '10 here and found it a very pleasant experience. There is a main building and 2 annexes with more rooms across the car park (no charge during your stay). One of our party had a 2nd floor room in the main building and the other 2 were in one of the annexes. We found that the main building room was smaller than that in the annexe but both were quite adequate for a short stay. Obviously, room sizes vary so our experience may not be typical. The breakfast choices were excellent, from a full English to a continental, as was the breakfast itself. There is a small bar, open till around 11.00pm, at normal pub prices and a lounge to relax in. Staff were all friendly, polite and very helpful. The hotel is located in a quiet side street and it's a 10-minute stroll to the city walls and Minster, 15 mins to the centre. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a short, or even a longer, stay in York.
