Christmas Break in York

The Grange Hotel, situated a short walk from the Minster and the city’s historic sites, is the perfect place to indulge yourself this Christmas.  It’s a special place at any time of the year, but this is particularly true in December when the hotel is beautifully decorated and cosy, roaring fires welcome our guests.


Christmas Eve

We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel, with check in from 2.30 pm.  Afternoon tea shall be served from 3.00 pm, and, if you can tear yourself away from the blazing open fire, you might like to take a stroll into the city and wander the shops for those last minute stocking fillers.

Enjoy a Champagne Cocktail and canapes before dinner is served.




Christmas Day

Start your day with a hearty Yorkshire breakfast, or perhaps the lighter option of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.  There is plenty of time for you to exchange gifts before our traditional Christmas lunch is served from 12.00 noon.  The afternoon is for relaxation – the Queen’s speech, traditional board games or simply sink into one of our comfy sofas in the Morning Room with a good book.  Supper shall be served from 7.00 pm.

Boxing Day

Enjoy a later start to the day as our Boxing Day Brunch Menu shall be available until 11.00 am.  The day is free for you to enjoy our wonderful city or perhaps venture further afield to the moors and dales.

Dinner shall be served from 6.30 pm.

27th December

Our Christmas programme concludes after breakfast, but why not take advantage of our special twixtmas rates and extend your stay?  With rates from just £99 per room, per night, including a full Yorkshire breakfast, why rush home?
