The Grand is a vast, five-star luxury hotel just south of the River Ouse, whose ornate Edwardian exterior holds an array of top-level services. Indeed, it’s York’s only five-star hotel making it a must for those who want to experience the very best of York’s accommodation offerings.

Experiences and staycations on offer include Winter Escape, in which guests enjoy a meal in the hotel’s Rise Restaurant in the evening, followed by a superb Yorkshire breakfast the next morning. The New Year, New You package combines a room with pampering in the attached spa. Culinary Expertise meanwhile provides a three-day cookery course with top professional chefs in a state of the art kitchen.

The Rise Restaurant, styled by professional designers Twenty2 Degrees, features a stylish dining room, plus cocktail bar, open kitchen, and heated outdoor courtyard. On the menu, you’ll find moules mariniere, confit duck terrine, followed by stone bass or perhaps opt for something from the prestigious grill, where the best locally sourced beef is served up according to taste.

Meanwhile, the sophisticated 1906 Bar has everything ready for connoisseurs of champagne, spirits and whisky to drop in and be impressed. From the highlands to the lowlands to the islands, you’ll find Dalwhinnie, Auchentoshan, Talisker and much more.

For corporate hospitality, weddings and other functions, the Grand offers the Hudson space, replete with fine furnishings and catering options to suit all needs. Then there’s the Culinary School which operates throughout the year. If you’re looking for somewhere to spend a particularly special anniversary or other big days, The Grand is certain to prove the most luxurious option in the city.
