Took my boyfriend away for his birthday last week and stayed at the Elmbank after finding a fantastic quote on their website (cheaper than Booking.com and Laterooms!). Requested a nice room in the main building as I wanted to make it special for him. Well! We got there, beautiful building, gorgeous interior, and the receptionist was bubbly and friendly and helpful, checked in really easily, we were staying up the staircase and along the balcony which was a wonderful walk to breakfast each morning, and when we got in the room we found that they had given us the four poster room :-) absolutely made up! Room was lovely, bed was comfy, decor was grand, bathroom was clean and nicely tiled, I'd like to add that the entire room throughout our stay was extremely clean and the maids were friendly and very accommodating - my other half wasn't feeling well one morning so I asked if we could not have our room 'seen to' that day but if we could just have some fresh towels and more tea/coffee - there was a little knock on the door later on and everything we needed was outside. The bath was nice and big, the wardrobe and chest of drawers were HUGE, very helpful, we had a nice view, the room was nice and warm but if it gets too warm you can turn it down easily, the tv was brill and had lots of channels, and the complimentary tray of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and biscuits was very welcome. We didn't manage to sample the bar snacks menu but it looked delicious, and breakfast was wonderful each morning. We had a regular staff member see to us each morning, he was very friendly and courteous, and breakfast was delicious, fantastic range of food and very tasty! Lots of fresh orange juice, tea and coffee as well. The grounds were lovely and we had no trouble parking - it IS limited but if you have any problems, speak to the reception ladies as they're very helpful with this. We walked into town each day - those complaining about the walk need to get to the gym, it only takes about 15 minutes and is very pleasant. The day my partner was ill, I wandered into town to get us some sandwiches, I was only gone for half an hour. It's a good distance - near enough to walk into without trouble but far enough away to give you some peace and quiet! It's 24 hour access into the hotel so when we came in at 5am after a night out it was great to be able to just get our key and hop into bed. There's lots to do around the town - we recommend York Dungeons, great fun and they really involve you, also obviously the Cathedral is a must. York has everything you could need and this hotel is perfect for a lovely romantic getaway.
