I stayed here for 1 night with my son and his friend in order for my son to attend an interview at York university. The main entrance of the hotel is very old (300 years) and still has some of the original panelling and wall art. It is a beautiful place with a wonderful old sitting room with large stairway...

We had a lovely 1 night stay in our comfy and cozy room. It took about 10 minutes to walk to the city walls, about 15 into the centre of the city. We will definitely consider using this hotel again when revisiting York. The staff were welcoming too. Only negative was limited parking spaces but there is cctv for the... More

So.....we decided to spend a week-end in York. We have visited York before. We started to search for a place to stay. Let's face it, there's plenty to choose from and after several hours on-line we 'lit' on this hotel. We read the reviews.....some good....some not so good.....we decided to give it a try. We were so pleased we made... More

Stayed over at this hotel following a family get together in York. Staff were very efficient and helpful, arranging a breakfast table for ten,serving drinks at the bar until late,ensuring that everyone was satisfied with their stay. The building would have been very impressive in its day but is now a little tired and the bedroom windows draughty. The showers... More

After reading some of the negative comments we were a bit apprehensive about staying but we couldn't have been more wrong. Absolutely lovely hotel with lots of original features. Fantastic food and friendly staff and cat!! Spotlessly clean everywhere. We will definitely be back.

Stayed here for 1 night on 29th Jan. Can't honestly think of anything bad to say about the hotel. All of the staff were lovely, polite, friendly and helpful. No complaints there. We had food in the hotel on the Friday night, the curry and the new york chicken. Both big portions, really nice and good value for money. Breakfast... More

Visited with another couple in January. Rooms were clean and functional. Every member of staff that we spoke to was exceptionally friendly and a real strength of the hotel. It's not a bad walk into town and all in all, spot on for a weekend away in York.

We stayed at the Elmbank Hotel for one night in January. Staff were very welcoming on arrival, and the stylish old house, witha separate bar and look-alike flaming fires, was an interesting choice. However, the negatives multiplied. Our bedroom was at the front of the house, and was small with a very poor design of separation within the older larger... More

Stayed here recently on a saterday night and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has some beautiful features such as mosaic walls and grand tapestries! It really is fantastic. On arrival the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The room we were given was huge! More than enough storage space and an adequate sized bathroom too. The bed was... More
