We stayed in a different part of the hotel from our last visit ( last time a large room at the front of the building) - the room was smaller but fine with a good bathroom. It was clean, well furnished, comfortable and quiet, even with the window open. The breakfast was, as we experienced before, very good with a... More

I wished I read the reviews before staying in this hotel, we was really disappointed with our room as it was dirty and the carpet looked like it had never been cleaned but also even though we got a discount through booking.com I think we definetly over paid for the room we was put in. The staff were friendly but... More

We were in room 230. The room was very clean and just what we were looking for. The building is gorgeous and would benefit from some attention to bring it up to date, some of the detail in the bar and area downstairs is lovely. The staff were accommodating and any request we had, they fulfilled very quickly. I would... More

Very dated hotel. Needs a good revamp! Stayed in family room which was spacious and very clean. Only one window could be opened for air. Was along way upstairs to carry luggage. Bathroom clean but basic. Staff we're not so friendly and it seemed you were putting them out when making a query. If you want to have breakfast here... More

Just returned from a two nights stay at the Elm Bank and it was a pleasant stay. There are three sections to the Elm Bank, the main house part, the annex and the lodge across the road. There were three in our party and we booked 2 rooms, mine being a large double (just for myself) in the main hotel... More

We were four girls staying here for a trip to the races on Saturday paying £64 B&B for x2 twin rooms. Perfect location for the races you can walk there along with the steady stream of people also going that way. Upon arrival (11:30) we were pleasantly surprised that we could check in early, we were prepared to just leave... More

The hotel looked very impressive and the main lounge and imposing staircase gave us the 'wow' factor. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. So far, so good.. Carpet on landing was in need of hoovering and had bits of black tape holding it together. Room 245 - door looked as if it had previously been broken onto. Room was 'tired';... More
