Inn The Groves - York

3 star Inn York

15 St Peters Grove - York

Price starting from £ 39.00
The Groves is a small hotel (20 bedrooms) located a level 10 minutes' walk from York Minster, the city walls, and the city center beyond. Easy to reach on foot are all the famous attractions such as the Jorvik Viking Centre, National Railway Museum, York Eye, Castle Museum, and many more. Also close by are the river boats and hop on/off city buses to cruise you up and down the River Ouse or whizz you round the city.

Built in the late 1800s by a well-known York designer for a local business, the main buildings history is that of a private residence, army barracks, and latterly as a well-respected hotel. Made up of 3 separate buildings, all of the bedrooms and public areas have been sympathetically refurbished over the period 2009-2011. Lots of the original features still remain such as our splendid grand staircase and the stone-mullioned lead-lined windows.

Today, we offer comfortable accommodation to leisure and business travelers to our wonderful city of York.

Guests staying at The Groves will find all of the facilities that you would expect from a small property, such as complimentary wireless Internet access throughout, laundry facilities, parking, and complimentary breakfast.

Minimum child age: 5yrs. Groups: please note that The Groves does not accept hen or stag parties nor those wishing to party late into the night (or early morning!).

I stayed at The Groves with my 2 daughters for a pre wedding weekend. Our room was spacious bright and clean, breakfast was also excellent probably the best one I've ever had. I can reccomend La Vecchia Scuola Italian restaurant for atmosphere and views and good food, The Lamb and Lion at Bootham bar is worth a visit for the beer garden view of the minster. We travelled out to Middlethorpe hall for afternoon tea and spa day, amazing gardens. Avoid the wine bars on Fri and Sat nights they are full of rowdy stag and hen parties. The Yorkshire Terrier is a great pub real ale, live music and a nice mixed crowd.Waggon and Horses do amazing homemade burgers and great live music too. I will stay at The Groves again.

The hotel is three quarters of a mile or 13 minutes walk from York centre. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, all except the venetian blinds just behind our bed that appeared not to have been touched since they were installed. We left a "please clean" message in the dust. We were not prepared for just how tiny the standard double room was, about 12ft by 9ft. It was not possible to sit straight in front of the small dressing table - no space. The shower room was spacious, so having a small wash basin and no real space for two wash bags other than the floor is unexplained, as is the small toilet and its seat that has to be held upright by gentlemen. Other than the statement "rooms vary in size" there was no indication that one could end up in what is really a single room with a double bed squeezed in. The experience did not justify £71 per night. Stayed January 2014

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room and en-suite were very clean and tidy. (I went for a large room). The breakfasts were excellent with good portions. Probably a little bit pricey for what it is (but then arent a lot of York accommodations!?) but the stay was excellent and I would definitely recommend it.

Perfect place to stay, a short 10 minute walk to the city walls. Best option for accommodation in York for value for money and location. Lovely hotel and neatly appointed. Would definitely return.

Enjoyable stay at reasonable cost and very convenient but quiet location. Breakfast was very nice. The room was simply but nicely decorated. The only problem I had was that the shower and wash basin were on the small size and the bathroom generally rather cramped.
