Have just read a sample of the reviews and have to say I must have got lucky as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I stayed in one of the 'cabin' rooms toward the rear of the building and while it might not have been the Ritz, for what is essentially a budget hotel it was more than adequate. The... More

Weird place. The gran entrance hall was impressive but a little odd. As you walked further through the hotel and further away from the lobby, the quality rapidly declined. We were at the back of the hotel - which resembled a hostel from the outside. There was a dead fly on the windowsill and a weird smell of hot oil.... More

The Elmbank Hotel is handily placed for York city centre. A number of buses pass nearby but it's only about a fifteen minute walk. The hotel is comfortable and has a number of new rooms which are very comfortable. Friendly staff; a nice place to stay.

Can't believe we paid 150 pounds for this room. Smallest room I've ever seen, threadbare carpet, no hot water, and the phone in the room doesn't work to call the front desk ask about why there is no hot water. When asked for a luggage rack we were told they didn't have one, so our luggage is on the floor... More

A little bit dated which added to the experience. Comfy lounge small bar area but good prices. Bedroom was clean and spacious. Staff friendly. Didn't have breakfast because we didn't think it was worth an extra £9.00 each

Me and my husband booked the Elmbank for a one night stay then read the reviews on Trip Advisor. I must admit a lot of reviews had us worried, it looked like we were to have a stay in "Hotel from hell" We pulled up at the Elmbank and parked right in front of the door, so far so good.... More

Having stayed a night here i felt i should write a review - myself and my husband were just using it as a 'base' to sleep in while visiting the city centre for the day and we managed to only pay £60 for the night. On this basis i cant really complain for what we paid for. HOWEVER reading through... More

What can I say? The place is rundown and a total revamp is needed. Carpet is stuck down by tape the room in which we stayed was dirty and I'm sure there is a damp problem as the room smelled musty luckily we didn't pay £9 for the breakfast as other guest we saying it was terrible. Avoid at all... More
