Request courtyard room. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet air conditioning. Fridge, safe, ironing board/iron, hairdryer with accessories, lovely bed linen and towels, tea/coffee/hot choc/biscuits. Wardrobe with hangers provided (no units with drawers!) Breakfast in dining room buffet style, ok.

My boyfriend and I went to York for our 2nd Anniversary, the hotel is 10-13 minutes ( depending on how fast you walk) form York Station and 15 minutes walk away from the centre of town, minister and York Wall plus its ideal for walking off dinner. Our original request was to have a room either facing the courtyard or... More

We have just spent 4 nights at the Elmbank along with my husband's brother and sister in law. After reading some of the previous negative comments we were slightly anxious on arrival, but no need. Elmbank is a lovely character property and the staff very friendly. Our rooms were in the main hotel and were a good size, comfortable and... More

We went as 2 couples and were charged £150 per room (which we were hastily requested to pay up front) and were told on arrival by the obnoxious desk receptionist - "it says limited parking on the website" when I explained I had nowhere to park and was attending the races. "You'll have to find somewhere else" around the corner... More

This was a great hotel, we stayed in the newly built rooms in a court yard at the back of the hotel. It's within a 10 min still into the centre of York. The staff are very friendly. Help yourself breakfast, great choice. We will definitely be making a return visit.

We were a bit surprised to be asked to pay on arrival, before even seeing the room. The room itself was fine - basic, but ok. It was a good size and the beds were fine, but there was an uplight outside which shone directly into the room. The hotel was very shabby - the carpet held down by tape... More

Surprised at all of the negative reviews below...we had a lovely room in the courtyard, clearly very recently renovated to a high standard, great modern bathroom and fittings. Renovation ongoing elsewhere in hotel but absolutely no impact on our enjoyment.

Very friendly and helpful staff working on first night. After that quite harsh approach to guests (especially last night) Food okay and reasonably priced. Good location for visiting York. Carpet in main entrance held down with silver duck tape! Cleanliness okay but not fabulous. Wouldn't stay here again.
