Situated close to the historic city of York, within easy access of the North York Moors, Herriot Country and the picturesque North East coastline, the non smoking Elmbank Hotel provides an ideal base for all visitors whether traveling on business or pleasure. Designed by architects J. B. & W. Atksinson and built around 1870, the Elmbank is a non-smoking city hotel with a country house atmosphere. Murals, frescoes, a magnificent oak staircase leading to a gallery with stained glass windows are just a few of the fine examples of art nouveau introduced in the interior of the hotel by George Walton, follower of Charles Rennie Macintosh. The hotel has a ballroom, which is ideal for weddings, private functions and dinner dances, catering for up to 200 guests. The Fully equipped Conference Suites can accommodate between 2 and 100 delegates, for meetings, seminars and exhibitions. The hotel provides amenities like banquet facilities, Internet access-wireless, lobby, non-smoking rooms, parking facilities-on street, pets not allowed (except for guide dogs), reception, restaurant and room service.

Wonderful location, and good rooms.

The time spend at the hotel was short but it was a wonderful place to rest and recharge. A polite and helpful staff made it all the better.

New to York? Good location.

Visiting for 3 days - within easy walking distance to centre of city. Receptionist very helpful with distances and times to drive, e.g. to Whitby. Pleasant walk to racecourse across the road. Traffic a bit noisy but room very pleasant with high ceilings, large windows and everything we needed. Main hallway with winding staircase to upper floor is exceptionally beautiful. Good value.

Elmwood Hotel York

The staff were very accomodating, the room clean, bathroom spotless. Location : a 10 minute walk into the heart of York. Only negative was the lack of Wi Fi which I need when abroad even though it's a vaction I need to be able to connect with loved ones and clients back home. BTW the "lounge" is an amazing space in oak panelling with very comfortable armchairs. Breakfast was good too.

York is steeped in history, the Elmwood is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle and close enough to get to the heart in 10 minutes (if like me you have the "New York strut")

Old converted house - needs work!

Quite convenient - few minutes walk from the city gate. Old building, small room with inadequate storage space. Not sparkling clean but staff seemed genuinely concerned at our comfort. Good breakfast available. We're confused; we grumbled a lot but in 2 days it 'grew' on us!

Quite close to city gate - bus passes by if walking is a problem. Our room was tiny and space strictly limited with 2 upright chairs and a bed. No drawer space.

The staff ruined it

Customer service and service with a smile seriously lacking. Room was not ready until nearly an hour after the check-in time and we received no apology we were just herded to the bar to buy drinks. Bank Holiday lie in ruined by the cleaners hoovering from 7am. If returning late after last orders at the pub expect a long wait at the doorstep.

Don't bother paying the extra £8.50. Walk in to York and you can get something far superior for half the cost.

A bad experience.

The broadband of this hotel is very bad.The room was also very small and the whole hotel is to old. The low price is the only good point i can find.
