My husband and I stayed last Saturday night after a day out at the races. We were put in a room in the Elmbank Lodge, just across from the main hotel. The room was huge, but only had a small double bed. It was clean with lovely white sheets and towels and plenty of tea/coffee however it was in dire...

Decided to book at last minute, on one of York's busiest weekends, Now know why they were the only place with rooms available. Thought we had booked a room in the hotel, only to find it was in the lodge. On entering the lodge you get a very strange smell, our room was down the stairs, where the odour was...

I was a bit worried about booking this hotel after reading some of the more negative reviews but I had a limited budget and prices had shot up in York as the Ebor festival was on at the racecourse. All I can say is we were given a very warm welcome by the lovely receptionist when we arrived on Friday...

I went to this hotel with a friend for a night. We were in a twin (though it was a zipped together twin but very wide!) bed in the annex. I was agreeabley surprised after reading some of the negative reviews on here, we thought the place was fine for a night or two. It wasn't posh, but what do...

We stayed here on a rainy Friday in August and were impressed by the cosy rooms and lovely decor of the downstairs hall and bar. Some readers have commented on some of the areas looking a bit 'tired' which is true but the unusual decoration and magnificant wooden hall and staircase along with resident cat make up for this. The...

Booked a last minute Saturday night away and this was probably the only hotel that was under £100 and handy for the town centre. Was a bit apprehensive when I read the reviews but didn't plan on spending too much time in the room. There's no denying the hotel is dated and the carpets and decor are worn and are...

Just been to York for the weekend, we needed two rooms as there were four of us. It was easy to book, easy to find and the staff were all friendly and professional. There was little parking, but we got a spot that cost a fiver for the night. Hotel must have been stunning in it's heyday, however it looks...

This hotel is not 3star i would say 1star it is in desperate need of updating , the shower just trickled out then the water would go cold. The floor creaked any time you put foot on floor. The dark brown curtain partly held up with a piece of wire. I have stopped in some beautiful guest houses at half...

The hotel was wonderful. We had only booked a standard double room but were given the honeymoon suite on arrival- just what we needed after a terrible 3 weeks! The room had everything we needed, was clean, tidy and had all mod cons including a large tv and amazing power shower. We spent 3 days here and on the last...

“Stay elsewhere.”
  • Really mucky and displays a real lack of customer care
  • Grubby and lack of attention to detail.
  • Could be replaced easily and cheaply
