for 22 years my friends and I of varying ages and from various places have met at the Elmbank for our annual get together. The staff are always pleasant and generally helpful (although the English fluency of one of the waiters has not improved with time), the food is varied and of excellent quality, and there is always plenty of...

We stayed only for one night and were amazed by the original decor, wonderful friendly staff, perfect location and amazing value for money. The bathroom was modern and absolutely immaculate.. We will definitely be returning in new year for a longer stay... It was like been in a film set !!!

My friend and I stayed in the main hotel (the lodge is across the road). Great location... 5 minute nice walk into the town centre. The hotel itself has an old feel to it which is nice and added to the atmosphere of York. The main hall had a personality, it also had an open fire and a lovely old-esq... More

The hotel seems lovely. But they have a lodge over the road. Well more like a hostel. .It was cramped, the wall paper in the bedroom was peeling off and stuck down with sellotape. There was a half inch thick layer of dust on the woodwork around the edge of the floor. The bathroom was discusting, there is crusty old... More

Top marks for how close to the city centre this hotel is, we had quite a lot of confusion on booking it, but it was dealt with in good humour. I was given the keys while the confusion was sorted and then paid later. The reception is gorgeous, very cute cat asleep on the stairs for so many hours, I... More

There's been many negative reviews about this hotel; however, I have a very different opinion. To start £44 for a night within such a short walk to the city centre is a bargain. Upon entrance to the hotel, I noticed how old it was, however, this is something I enjoy (hence the visit to York) We were greeted by a... More

On arrival at The Elmbank you are greeted to a wonderful entrance and bar/restaurant/seating area with beautiful fireplace. There's even a Tapestry room (whatever that is). However the room we were in was nothing like we was expecting compared to the downstairs area. The room was very poor and badly in need of a makeover. The mattress must have been... More

Beautiful Arts and Crafts hotel, with some lovely rooms. Evening meal very good value and breakfast very filling and tasty too. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. First room very small and scruffy but moved into Lodge and then very satisfied with new ground floor room. After an easy and interesting walk into centre of York we... More

A well placed hotel for visitors to York,just a stones throw away from the town centre.The hotel has a rather dark entrance but opens up to a beautiful hallway,lots of oak paneling and tall ceilings.The room was ok clean and the beds comfortable.The food was very good,i rate the hotel very highly and will be staying there again.
