Stayed for just one night and had a nice room over the road at the lodge, the room was spacious and bright with a large bathroom, the room had everything we needed for a short stay. The bed was comfortable and the room was lovely and warm. The main building was very ornate and all the staff were very friendly... More

My partner and I stopped for 2 nights, arriving on New Year's Day. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff and after arranging for another guest to re-park their car, we were able to park in the small area opposite. Our room was plenty big enough and clean. It had everything we required for our short stay. TV, towels, shampoo,... More

Me and my partner came to stay at the hotel the weekend before Xmas so we could go shopping and admire the beautiful city of York. What a wonderful stay we had from start to finish. As we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a lovely welcome from the young girls behind reception then shown our lovely room.... More

I don't know why people have written bad reviews, I can't wait to visit the Elmbank again! The exterior was beautiful and the inside is even better! Cleanliness great, room great and staff great too! Bar food was really tasty and was cheap too! I can't wait to come back to the hotel!

Myself and my partner went for our year anniversary to what we thought was a lovely hotel but what we got was completely different. We thought we paid for a double room in the hotel but got put across the road in a 'lodge' to then realise we was in a underground room! When we walked in I first noticed... More

We stayed here for the one night and for £45 for a double room we couldn't argue. Yes the place is in need of a bit of a refurb and the room was quite cold despite the heating being on but for the price we paid it did the job. It's not too far from the city centre and has... More

This hotel was so bad I left at 3am in the morning due to sleep deprivation and wrote off my trip , I've had quieter nights in Ibiza during peak season and although I appreciate the hotel isn't responsible for that they are however negligent for thinking the room I was in was habitable....One little tiny double glazed window could...

Needed a hotel for one night at short notice. This ticked almost all the boxes. Laid back from the main road with limited parking, but plenty of street parking outside. This hotel is a bit dated but still had its charm. Could do with a bit of TLC. Small bar, large separate lounge area. Rooms are also available in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights January 2015 as seeing show at Barbican. Plenty of parking in car park and on street. Room spacious, warm and clean. Ate dinner in hotel restaurant on first night and the fixed rate 3 course for £15.00 was very good value for money - nicely presented and tasty. The lounge is lovely, always warm and welcoming....
