I stayed here for business and was disappointed. The reception area is beautiful but the rooms are outdated. All I require when away on business is a clean room with friendly staff. I was not confident that the rooms were that clean and the bathrooms were old and had not seen a deep clean in a long time. The other... More

A really good price, a friendly welcome. We got two good sized rooms together, comfy beds and nice quality bedding and towels. Quite a few creaky floorboards! Breakfast was good value and the staff could not have been more helpful. Would definitely consider it again.

Firstly staff are great and always on hand to help, location was good as it's only a 10 minute walk into the town centre. Plenty of pubs and places to eat on the way to town.Room was quiet as we where at the back of the hotel and not near a road and it was clean. Bathroom looked as tho... More

My friend booked this hotel for us, it's not central to the City but only a short walk 10-15 minutes to the main attractions. We had two separate single rooms situated at the end of the hotel. My room was quite basic with en suite shower, a television,the usual teabags and coffee sachets and a guide book for York. The... More

I've stayed at the Elmbank previously and was delighted with the overall experience for the price, so had no hesitation in booking again for an overnight midweek stay. The hotel itself was just as I remembered: an imposing, beautiful building with original period features. Breathtaking. Check-in was problem free, and we were given directions to the room. This is when... More

This hotel was cheap so we weren't expecting loads from it! But it really wasn't that great. The areas it is in has traffic all night that you can hear, and the ends aren't comfortable at all, so don't be expecting a great nights sleep because you wont be getting it. The wifi also wasn't working, not a lot of... More

Cheap and cheerful hotel , well in our case the portacabins out the back . The bed was ok if you had back problems or wanted them due to it being made out of some sort of granite type material . The "double bed" was in fact two singles pushed together to seem as if it were one , they... More

2 of us stayed here in March for 1 night and had a nice stay. We had 3 single beds in our room and I found the bed quite comfy. The room is a little tired but we were hardly in it, it was clean and the bathroom was really nice and clean. The lovely part of this hotel is... More

Let's think from where to start. Very confusing layout, room directions marked haphazardly, creaking floors, no sound proofing at all (you can listen to people conversing in next rooms, think about this), quite far from city. Few good points though: had wifi and big TV. Although far from center, public transport is easily available.

Unfortunately I didn't get chance to stay at the Elmbank due to my own fault booking the wrong date! The hotel was fully booked so we could not stay but the staff at the hotel went out of their way to help us find another one, as it was Easter weekend everything was fully booked but they helped us find...
