A sophisticated five-star York hotel with a luxe spa and a gourmet, three AA Rosette-awarded restaurant - breakfast and optional dinner included

As York's very first five-star hotel, The Grand Hotel & Spa certainly pulls out all the stops. Located just a five-minute walk from the city centre, and overlooking the historic city walls, a night at this opulent and timeless abode is unforgettable. As you step inside, you'll discover beautiful Edwardian architecture and indulge in some serious wining and dining: by night you may want to unwind in the hotel's 1906 Bar. This hotel unsurprisingly received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

An array of sophisticated spaces are on hand, so you can put your legs up and relax; sleek, stylish guest rooms replete with modern amenities, while there is a rather tempting array of afternoon tea options available, whether you'd prefer the 'Hendrick's Tipsy G&Tea' variant or another featuring blissful spa perks.

Speaking of the spa, it is quite certainly the region’s most enticing. Secluded in the quiet calm of the building’s old vaults, it offers a Nordic dry sauna, aromatic steam room, relaxation lounge, whirlpool, swimming pool with jets and a state-of-the-art gym, as well as a sensational menu of treatments, courtesy of top skincare brand, ESPA.
