We stayed here for two nights as we often stay in York and thought we would give the Elmbank a try. Our room was on the second floor in the Lodge (just across a side road from the main hotel) and to be honest the whole building felt old and neglected. Our room was small and in order to open...

we had to be in York for our son's graduation and we struggled to find a hotel/pub/b&b with space but when we found Elmbank we hit gold and we enjoyed the rich seam. A modest but well equipped bedroom was in a spacious hotel with very friendly and efficient front desk staff. It is about ten minutes walk from the...

Shocked at hotel prices in York I settled on this one because of its price and grand appearance. The hotel is a little out of town, about a 20 minute walk, but the 4 bus stops close by. The room was large and bright but looked a little tired. The bathroom was more so and was well overdue a refresh....

The room I was given, for £99 for one night, was in the 'lodge' on the other side of the road from the main hotel. It was mediocre at best - small, poorly decorated, very dated. However, my main complaint, and the reason why I have given the hotel one star, is that I was charged £1 for leaving a...

Hotel was value for money, affordable and adequate. The staff were friendly and it was clean. About a 15 min walk from the centre of York in a nice area. On street parking free and they had a little car park too

The only good thing about the hotel is that it was very clean and in a good location close to the main town. Apart from that there isn't much to boast about. It is very old fashioned which is appealing in the main reception but the rooms are simply grubby. The bathroom was modern but the beds,carpet and furniture all...

Despite what a lot of the reviews say it's not a bad place! The rooms were a good price, they were clean and comfortable. The hotel itself was nice inside and out, including the resident cat! Food was excellent, I had home made steak and ale pie, a very good price and very nice! The staff were friendly and very...

We often go to York and have stayed in several different hotels and B&Bs. Usually we opt for cheaper accomodation so we can spend more on meals etc and have more weekends away. This hotel was more expensive than the majority of those we have stayed in and from the photographs we expected to have a nice room, of a...

This was our 3rd stay at Elmbank, we like the fact that the hotel is walking distance from the train station, race course and city. The room was ok, bed was comfy clean towels etc. However when we returned on Sunday afternoon after a day in the city there had been no housekeeping so could not have a cup of...

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