Me and my partner booked this hotel on the basis that it was relatively close to the town centre and train station, and since we were only staying the one night we werent too fussed about the cost. Absolutely should have been, granted this is not the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed, but it certainly is the most...

Stayed here for 1 night and wanted to leave as soon as I got here! Rooms reminded me of an old people's home! Had no sleep due to constant banging and awful beds, I would never recommend this hotel. Stay elsewhere!!

Me and my boyfriend checked in the Elmbank hotel on Saturday 15th April we arrived to find there was very limited parking spaces. When we got the keys to our room we were in the lodge across from the hotel. we entered the room to find the carpet stained all over. The lights were flickering for a few moments when...

I was really looking forward to visiting York as we had never been, the Hotel is very well located - that is all. There was nowhere to park on arrival, the sullen accented chap on reception when we checked in dismissively directed us to parking somewhere half a mile away. Inside the building was very dingy and poorly lit and...

I was very nervous about staying here after reading all the reviews. I personally think these are a bit harsh. The first impressions of this hotel are very nice. The main hotel corridors look like they are in the process of being decorated, the bar is quaint and very friendly. I cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat...

Absolutely disgusting. The room I stayed in was cold and damp. Bathroom was tiny, and covered in mould/damp. The washbasin in the bedroom can only be described as a health hazard, and in a real state of disrepair. Carpet in the room was covered in stains, and areas of damp. Carpet in the corridors was held together by gaffer tape....

After seeing the pictures of the rooms, I was bitterly disappointed in ours. It was in desperate need of updating. Dusty edges and skirting boards, stains on the walls and and extremely noisy floorboards above our room. On the plus side the bathroom was spotless. The shower and bath were great. Overall it's overpriced, I'd have expected more. No vegetarian...

Easy to find by car. Could do with larger parking facilities. Only 10 min walk into town centre. Stayed on room basis only so can't comment on food. Friendly staff. Oldy worldly hotel. My families room was stunning 4 posted bed & large room with sofa & chairs. Ours average but comfortable.

“Go to the premier Inn just down the road we stayed there after checking out from Elmbank.”

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