We booked the small function room at the Elmbank Hotel for my mum's funeral reception. From start to finish we cannot fault the efficiency and kindness of all of the staff involved. Nothing was too much trouble for them and everyone went out of their way to be as helpful as possible while remaining low key. The buffet was excellent...

Hotel was easy to find and about a 15 minutes walk to the centre. Staff were very welcoming. 24 hour reception so there was someone always there if you needed them. Room was clean but dated. Toilet didn't flush straight away, water didn't come out of taps straight away. Beds were comfortable. Probably better that the hotel was out of...

the hotel was ok x staff welcoming, we didn't eat there so can't say. Bed was comfortable. shower was awful. Location was fab and free parking. Was spot on for what we required. If you want a plush room don't book here. But did us perfectly for what we wanted. Would go back for the location and cheapness

Having read some negative reviews about standard rooms, we opted to pay the extra few pounds for a superior room which was fantastic. The bed was so comfortable, the bathroom was luxurious and there was no issue with the hot water. It was quiet, and the food in the bar was cheap but great pub food. Breakfast buffet was good...

I travel around the the UK on businesses and frequently visit York .. I use budget hotels and do not expect 5star for a budget price sadly for the first time I am leaving a negative review .This hotel may have a couple of fine public rooms...The staff did their best and that's the best I can say.

The main hotel looked nice but we were sent over the road to a horrible, dirty hovel. Room was just awful.. toilet seat fell off, pipes hanging off wall, mattress didn't fit the bed,horrible stained lampshades, had to sanitise the TV remote etc.. I have never walked out of an establishment before but this one broke me and we left...
