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

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.

Needed somewhere for a one night midweek stay and this ticked all the boxes. Lovely staff, close to town, clean room, comfy bed and cheaper than Travelodge and Holiday Inn! Would recommend and stay again

beautiful hotel, dated but adds to the historic town. staff super friendly & there to help with any needs you had. Spacious room but bathroom a bit small, and shower low pressure but did its job. Food in the restaurant was delicious & worth every penny. Breakfast slightly a bit expensive for what you got. Corridor floor rather creaky so... More
