I booked to stay at the Elmbank as I was only staying in York for a night and didn't want to spend a fortune on a single room, room only, for just the 1 sleep. My booking was made direct with the hotel and I found a discount code hidden on the website, which worked and saved me a little bit of money.
I have stayed at other hotels in the Cairn hotel group (Earl's Court, London and Royal Station, Newcastle) and have found them all to have an olde worlde charm, and this hotel is no exception.
The grand entrance hall and the cosy looking bar area were inviting, but as I was tired and aching from my apparently "First Class" train journey up from London, I chose to check-in, have a shower and go to bed.
Yes, the place is a bit of a maze, the floorboards were a bit creaky and the sound of doors opening and closing from the corridor outside, despite other residents' best efforts to be quiet, was a bit irritating in the morning, but the building is old !
Unfortunately, as I was on a budget and was up North to see relatives, I didn't avail of breakfast in the morning.
If I were to embark on the same sort of trip to see my relatives, I would definitely choose to stay here again.
