Built as a ‘Palace of Business’ in 1906 as the North Eastern Railway Headquarters, the magnificent Edwardian building is now home to the luxurious Grand Hotel & Spa, Yorkshire’s only five-star hotel.
With Meeting and Events space for up to 120 guests, The Grand offers an elegant and impressive setting, be it for a meeting, a launch event, celebration or a dinner. Dining is available in Hudson’s, the stylish 3 AA Rosette Restaurant, renowned for its Tasting Menu. Head Chef, Craig Atchinson, uses the finest and locally sourced produce to create dishes, which will delight and impress with each mouthful.
The Grand Bar and Whisky Lounge are ideal for pre or post dinner drinks, or as a place to catch up with friends and colleagues. A casual dining menu is available offering a variety of familiar and classic dishes. The quintessentially English tradition of Afternoon Tea is also served daily, whether you fancy a treat or you want to celebrate – we can help you do just that.
Edwardian buildings don’t come with a template so each of our 107 bedrooms are unique yet each of the seven room categories come with a feeling of space. Our Penthouse Suite is ideal for those looking for the ultimate in luxury. For complete relaxation and indulgence, head down to the hotel’s atmospheric vaults where the NER once stowed its millions. The original vault doors are still there creating a hushed and tranquil environment.
