Hotel information


Built in 1906, The Grand was once a palace of business – built in demonstration of the success of the North Eastern Railway Company, one of the wealthiest businesses of the Edwardian era, and serving as its headquarters for more than 80 years.

Now reborn as a hotel, but retaining its original splendour, with its intricate stonework and marble detailing, The Grand, York features beautiful public spaces, extraordinarily spacious rooms, two restaurants and bars, an executive lounge and a spa.

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 – the perfect place to explore the city.

The hotel occupies two main wings. In the original building, the imposing Edwardian design means every guest room is supremely generous in size, with tall ceilings, large windows and beautiful architectural quirks such as porthole windows. The 20 suites are even more stately and constitute a veritable home from home. The new wing, opened in 2018, sees heritage meet modern simplicity, like an elegant and contemporary take on a fine country house. Wherever you stay, guests benefit from king-sized beds, Egyptian linen and Molton Brown-stocked bathrooms.

Executive chef Craig Atchinson presides over two distinct restaurants. The Rise Restaurant occupies a lively place at the heart of the hotel, offering fine dining with relaxed service in a contemporary designed space that echoes the building’s former railway origins.

Separately, Hudsons is a showcase for Craig Atchinson’s award-winning gastronomy. Its intimate setting, overlooking the city walls, offers an exquisite and sometimes experimental tasting menu served with wine pairings. Hudsons is a true destination restaurant and must be booked in advance.

Admission includes a complimentary racecard, which offers much more than the information on the runners & riders. It is also important to note that admission to the County Stand also allows guests access to the Grandstand & Paddock as well as the Course Enclosure.

GRANDSTAND & PADDOCK STAND

The largest enclosure at York, guests admitting into the Grandstand & Paddock can come casually dressed. The area offers a host of bars found in the Knavesmire Stand, many with breathtaking views across the track and seated viewing areas. The Bustardthorpe Lawns also provide fantastic trackside viewing, and is popular for spectators wishing to enjoy York’s good food to go.

Dress Codes

What to wear

As a world class racecourse, York places the utmost importance in dressing in a suitable manner. Gentleman must wear a jacket, collared shirt and tie in the County Stand, and although smart trousers and formal shoes are recommended to complete the look, there is no formal restriction on wearing jeans and trainers. Similarly, if gentlemen believe the weather warrants shorts then there is no formal restriction to them being worn. Ladies are required to wear a dress, whilst hats are optional.

The Grandstand & Paddock and Course Enclosure requires a more relaxed dress code. Shorts and t-shirts are often worn by racegoers enjoying the sun, and the only real restrictions fall under the common sense category - bare chests and slogan t-shirts are unacceptable.
