Just returned from a two night stay here. Staff were lovely, always stopping to chat. They remembered our beverage choice at breakfast. Room was decorated to a good standard Room 225. Could do with better signs as to where bedrooms are but a helpful male staff member showed us to our room and helped carry the luggage. There isn't a...

Upon arrival the hotel seems impressive and true to the price they charge, but do not be deceived!The rooms are terrible, cold and in serious need of a deep clean and decore update. The bathroom needs refitting as standard of bath/shower is poor and shabby. Our double room was two single beds pushed together. After an awful night of the...

Dirty, dirty, dirty!!!! On arrival the exterior looks very welcoming, that is until you set foot through the door. Once inside the hotel is dark and dated, yes it's old and that explains some of the reason but just because it's old doesn't mean it can't be brightened up. Check in was hectic at best and the receptionist left a...

We stayed at Elmbank hotel on 22 may 2015 for the bank holiday extended weekend. It was very pricey for the accommodation. It needs complete renovation and decor is all well ancient. The bathroom suit is old and dated needs grouting in the shower area, would benefit with hot and cold water tap mixers and if you need a mirror...

This is well located and nice. The staff seemed very hard working and helpful. The building itself was a good size. The decor is quite faded and the whole place could definitely do with a lot of money spending on paint, fresh carpets and curtains but then you'd be paying a lot more money for a pretentious place. Breakfast was...

All though this was the perfect place to stay for a stag weekend I won't be rushing back with my family. As soon as you opened the bedroom door a smell hit my nose which stayed with me all weekend. The shower was pretty useless could only point the head of the shower at my feet or directly at my...

Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Room stank of damp and when I opened the curtains I saw why..The carpet and wall were covered in mould and the floor was covered in dead wood lice. I phoned to complain and a guy came over armed with airfreshner and a hoover and proceeded to hoover them up!!! No other room...

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend, it was our anniversary, on entrance there is a large open fire in the lounge which was burning 24/7, lovely. The staff were very helpful, the room was basic but clean and the bed was really comfy. The breakfast was hot and fresh and plenty of it, can't fault the guy...

Well I never wrote reviews but I did think this deserved one! From creaky floorboards to dirty rooms to a bath that leaked too two single beds pushed together very uncomfortable the smell of the hotel is nearly unbearable. Rude staff, only decent thing about our stay was simply York which is a fabulous place to go. Find a better...
