Stayed here last Friday with the Mrs (who booked it....) Had a room across the road from the main hotel, in the lodge building. It's hard to explain what's actually going on with this place because it's got potential. The room was huge, fitted with a standard double bed, wardrobe and a sofa. Talk about spare floor space. Wish we'd... More

Practical tips: Paint marked spaces in the limited parking area to avoid loss of space by untidy parking. Use HG mould spray on tiles in showers. Change the fat/oil for fried bread, which tastes unpleasant. Put a new bulb in the wall sconce in the Fresco Room. The original house is well worth seeing for its Arts and Crafts/Art Nouveau... More

My wife and I stayed for our anniversary weekend and booked online choosing the option to have a room with a lounge area. It transpired that this booking option is not, in fact, available. Much time wasted demonstrating the website bug, but the result was we were housed in a very small room. The hotel is desperately short of car... More

Another of my fairly regular visits to York, this time on very short notice, so I was unable to stay in my preferred accommodation, The Friar's Rest on Fulford Road. The Elmbank is in a reasonable location, south of the city centre and a reasonably short walk from the train station. I drove up to York and found the hotel... More

My partner and I stayed here for a short break in September. The hotel was lovely and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the first floor, and had everything you would expect - plenty of storage space for clothing, and tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was quite small and it would have been difficult... More

Arrived 8th September 2014 departed 10th sept 2014, I would happily recommend. Showers a little outdated and carpet are too but it was clean and the bed was comfy. I would recommend you request extra pillows, the staff happily give you them. Hotel is 15 minutes walk from the town centre and an easy one too. Straight down the main... More

A lovely hotel with a stunning foyer with interior decorations by George Walton who worked with C. R. Mackintosh on the Buchanan St. tea-rooms in Glasgow. Climb the stairs and you encounter a rabbit warn of corridors. The rooms are of a high standard with tea & coffee making facilities provided along with everything expected. Our only complaint was that... More

My husband & myself came to visit York, and booked to stay at the Elmbank Hotel, after reading some of the reviews on here we were a bit worried about what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprise as staff were friendly, room was a good size & clean, location was good for getting to the centre (about 15 mins...

Elmbank is in a great location within walking distance of the tourist attractions, bar's and restaurant's. The staff were polite and helpful, the hotel is in need of a little upgrading but we think it was well worth the price we paid.
