THE HOTEL IS VERY HOMELY AND THE STAFF ARE VERY FRIENDLY, SOMETHING YOU DO NOT GET IN THE BIG CHAIN HOTELS WHICH TEND TO BE IMPERSONAL. I WOULD DEFINATELY GO TO THIS HOTEL AGAIN, IT HAD EVERYTHING, CLEANLINESS, GOOD BREAKFAST AND EASY ACCESS TO THE CENTRE OF YORK, WELL DONE TO ALL THE STAFF - The Groves is set in a tranquil location yet just 10 m... what people say » ins from Minster and shops. Parking is free and plentiful. The rooms have lots of thoughtful extras. They have a bar and full breakfasdt is included.
