We stayed for two nights at this beautiful house, our room and ensuite were spotlessly clean, the furnishings were tasteful and comfortable with a generous hospitality tray. Paul and Hilary were very good hosts, offering helpful information about the area and ensuring our stay was pleasurable. Great location for York, in a quiet, small village, just a short bus trip into York centre and the bus stop was two minutes from the house. The bus also stops at a good outlet centre, en route to York. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order with a great choice and oh those cakes! If you stay for two nights you receive a heavenly home made afternoon tea. There were delicious home made chocolate chip cookies in our room and on the second day we came back to find two slices of homemade

I booked the triple room for a wedding which my adult daughter, wife and I were attending. The property is large and in good order and set a long way back from the main road with plenty of parking. The owners are a great team and very engaging. We understand that they will soon be undertaking refurbishment of several of the older rooms together with rebranding with a new name (great idea!). The breakfast was excellent with quality ingredients. If you are looking to explore York this location would be great (assuming you have a car). Many thanks for a pleasant stay and good luck with your future plans.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my best friend. We were warmly welcomed by Hilary and shown through to the lounge where we were given tea and cakes. We were then shown to our room. The room was very clean and very homely with everything we needed for our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfast was delicious with a choice of menu. On the second day we came back from a day trip to Whitby to find 2 slices of cake left for us in our room. Would definitely reccomend Grimston House and will definitely be back! Thank you so much for a fantastic stay .

We stayed at Grimston House for two nights with friends. for a close friends wedding. Hilary welcomed us when we arrived and we were shown to our fabulous room with en-suite lounge. We were given fresh milk to make tea and coffee in our room and bottles of water. Every single little detail was thought of in our rooms. The bed was so comfortable with the softest sheets. Breakfast was incredible! Home made delights, fresh fruit, cereals, fully cooked breakfast with garden fresh eggs, and an incredible selection of local jams, served by Paul and cooked by Hilary. They are the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. We canโ€™t wait to return! Thank you Hilary and Paul for you wonderful hospitality. Lesley & Doug
