WIN! A five-star stay in York

Built in 1906 as the headaquarters of the North Eastern Railway, The Grand, York, boasts a stately character with sweeping stone staircases, original wood panelling, parquet flooring and acres of marble. The extravagance and grandeur is a reminder of the building’s former status as an icon of the golden age of railway travel. The building underwent an extensive refurbishment and expansion in 2018, increasing its bedroom capacity from 107 rooms to 207, with original elements paying homage to its former purpose.
Now reborn as a hotel, but retaining its original splendour, with intricate stonework and marble detailing, the award-winning hotel features beautiful public spaces, extraordinarily spacious rooms, two restaurants and bars, meeting and conference rooms, an executive lounge, a spa and a state-of-the-art cookery school.

Situated next to the ancient walls that enclose the city centre, and with views of York Minster, the hotel is located at a historical crossroads and offers a unique approach to inclusive luxury.
