Stayed here as a surprise booked by my partner for my birthday. The entrance is oldie worldie, we were too early to check in so walked in to the town which is about 15 minutes. Got back to the hotel about 5.30 and was checked in by a cheerful receptionist. We walked up the grand staircase to our room, which... More

we recently stayed here for a two night stay. The room we were put in was so small. We had to climb around the double bed to get to the sink, which was in the bedroom as the bathroom was only wide enough to fit a toilet in and a small box shower. There was no pressure in the shower... More

My partner, mother and I stayed at Elmbank for four nights recently. The room was massive with two double beds and a king size bed - more like a studio apartment than a room. One thing that would be useful are bedside lights as it was a long way to the light switch from the other side of the room!... More

Good location close to town. Lovely staff. Main building beautiful. Big roaring fire and lots of lovely original features. Room was in courtyard at back. OK for what we paid but not very clean. Room felt grubby and when we checked it was pretty filthy. Layers of dust on lights and tops of pictures. Found a piece of electric wire... More

I have stayed at the Elmbank before, and were quite pleased. I had no problem booking a room for a second stay. The first time, I stayed in room 216 which was worn, but cosy. This room had no internet access. This time, I was given room 101. It was big, but very worn and smelt bad. The bathroom had... More

A Victorian building in a pleasant residential district of York, within easy walking distance of the railway station and the historical centre. My room, in the "lodge" across the street from the main building, was tiny but comfortable and well appointed (opening the window was not easy, though). Fairly efficient free wifi. Very good English breakfast (not included in room... More

First of all don't believe hotels.com reviews. I stayed here last Saturday and wrote a below average review which has not been published. Maybe they filter what they don't like and keep the good ones which is why their averages are higher than on here. I requested to be able to book in an hour earlier through hotels.com. This was...
