Me and my partner recently stayed here for two nights and for £183 I expect to be able to get a good nights sleep! However, the floor boards are sooo creaky its ridiculous! I love old buildings, so this is not usually something that bothers me, but they boards were so loud it kept us up all night. This was... More

I recently stayed at the Elmbank for two nights on a business trip. I used a colleague’s bank card to reserve the room as I didn’t have my credit card on me at the time of reservation and I was keen to get a room booked. I was told no payment would be taken from the card. When I asked... More

This is a great value hotel as long as you don't pay the full rate. Somewhere between £42 - 55 a room is achievable most times except when there are races or events in York.Food is fairly basic but good quality and well cooked.If you're arriving late, make certain the chef is still on duty! Very convenient for city.Staff are... More

You get what you pair for and we weren't expecting too much which is just as well as we didn't get it. The hotel is a grand old house that is no a fairly grim hotel with some pretensions of olde worlde glamour. Room was OK but the bed was sproingy and as it was a single, it came with... More

stayed here with my fella. Room was freezing and two single beds pushed together. A bit out dated. Didnt stay for breakfast. Staff were helpful and friendly - free parking is good and only a 10 min walk from the city centre. Wouldn't stay here again but a good place if you're just wanting somewhere to sleep.

Hotel a bit dated but great historical features. It is very nicely located particularly if you are going to the races. Great price for breakfast if pre-booked on the hotels own website at £3 per person- a saving from £8 per person. Staff were lovely. You can now pre-book parking at £5 per night. Well worth it. Rooms ok. A... More

This is an old dated building that has a certain amount of outward charm and character but lacks all the elegance of a modern hotel. The food is excellent but seriously, that is the only positive thing to say. Its very noisy both inside and outside and the attitude of senior staff towards guests, especially an extremely well behaved snd... More

Paid £120 for a double room. Talking to other clients they had only paid £85. I queried the price and was told the rates vary from day to day. I then looked around for a cat to see if I could swing it round in my room. So small that when I lay in bed my feet where on the... More

After being disappointed that the room did not have a bath as I expected, I was glad that the staff ensured that we could change to a more accessible room.with a bath for the second and third nights. The staff were friendly and efficient. As a former resident of York I chose this hotel as it is.very convenient for most... More
