Went for a long weekend in York and booked into the Elmbank for 2 nights. We found the hotel very nice, we stayed in the lodge across the road, the room was fine, spotless and the bed was comfy. We got an excellent nights sleep. We paid to park the car at the hotel and due to the hotels proximity... More

This hotel was not chosen by me or by hubby but a friend who booked it for a group of us for the races. I was very concerned having read the reviews before I went as to be honest having read them I would not have booked in here personally. I cannot stress enough that this is an official 3... More

Visited this hotel with a friend to go to York Races. Chose this hotel because it was close to the race ground. On arrival I was shocked to see that the carpet in the the reception area has been taped because of wear and tear! The receptionist said we could not have our room until 2pm which was also disappointing... More

My family and I stayed here the family room was large and comfortable. Although the hotel is old and it's age can be seen in the use of real keys and some of the wall paper was a bit worn, we loved it. It's beautiful stair case and open fire were unexpected in such a good value hotel. The staff... More

Stayed overnight at this old hotel whilst travelling through York, grand appearance applied to us and also not in city centre which we like. Our room was on level 2 and room was spacious however in desperate need of an update from the bed to the décor. Bathroom was spacious enough but as with previous review the ventilation is poor....

We stayed here for two nights as we often stay in York and thought we would give the Elmbank a try. Our room was on the second floor in the Lodge (just across a side road from the main hotel) and to be honest the whole building felt old and neglected. Our room was small and in order to open...

we had to be in York for our son's graduation and we struggled to find a hotel/pub/b&b with space but when we found Elmbank we hit gold and we enjoyed the rich seam. A modest but well equipped bedroom was in a spacious hotel with very friendly and efficient front desk staff. It is about ten minutes walk from the... More

Shocked at hotel prices in York I settled on this one because of its price and grand appearance. The hotel is a little out of town, about a 20 minute walk, but the 4 bus stops close by. The room was large and bright but looked a little tired. The bathroom was more so and was well overdue a refresh.... More

The room I was given, for £99 for one night, was in the 'lodge' on the other side of the road from the main hotel. It was mediocre at best - small, poorly decorated, very dated. However, my main complaint, and the reason why I have given the hotel one star, is that I was charged £1 for leaving a... More

Hotel was value for money, affordable and adequate. The staff were friendly and it was clean. About a 15 min walk from the centre of York in a nice area. On street parking free and they had a little car park too
