Not bad for price

Posted 12-Apr-2016
Pros: The bathroom.
Cons: Needs renovating.
The Elmbank is fine for it's price but is in need of some TLC. My room although clean was in need of renovation . Thee bathroom on the other hand had been renovated and was fine. Only a 10 minute walk from the station and maybe 20 minutes into town.

Good location

Posted 05-Apr-2016
Pros: Good location for the train station.
Cons: The tv, the ceiling fan and the window noise. See above.
As a well-travelled, budget-staying nomad, I have low expectations. It's really not hard to impress me. The fan in the bathroom, whose switch was located in the ceiling, was broken. In order to turn it off, you had to step on the toilet to manually do so. No big deal in the grand scheme of things. The tv had a vertical line going through it. It gave a sinister air to some of the tv actors. The deal breaker, however, was the sound of a giant icicle that sounded as if it were melting outside my room as the water hit my window in exceptionally loud cycles. Now that was truly special.

it us a bit pricy.

Posted 28-Mar-2016
Hotel overall is not bad but it is a bit much for the price they asked for. we can barely move in a double room with too small bathroom. but it is quite near to the city centre.

the art

Posted 14-Mar-2016
The Hlasgow art nouveau is outstanding. Very little altered since 1978 and it's unbelievable to be sitting surrounded bybthecart decor and architecture. This is not a "plastic" hotel it is an atmosphere. The staff are neat, efficient pleasant and unobtrusive. The rooms are not sumptuous they are large,clean,comfortable and well equipped and WARM. I will go again just for a rest. Sorry , that is " the Glasgow Art".

easy walking distance

Posted 11-Mar-2016
Within easy walking distance from station also close enough to city centre to walk. Reception very quick and helpful especially with parking.Tea ,coffee & biscuits in room.Yes it is a bit tired in places but it was clean and had a certain charm.Cannot not comment on food as we ate out in the city centre but looked to be a good choice and reasonably priced.

ヨークの観光スポットから徒歩20分ぐらいですが途中に城壁がありまったり散策できて、むしろよかったです。 建物は古いですが清潔でベッドの寝心地も良いです

Elmbank hotel also uses Elmbank lodge

Posted 27-Feb-2016
Pros: Comfortable bed, tea and coffee in the room
Cons: Parking, remove damp, paint and replace carpets
Location: York City centre
This hotel is possibly a 1 star rating. I initially had to ask for a different room as the first smelt of old socks. Staff were understanding and really nice about it. I then was given a double room. It was cold and became damp , I did have heating on at times. Pros of place, comfortable bed, free view tv, quiet at night in the Elmbank Lodge. Cons, I felt extra for breakfast was inappropriate, the parking was difficult during the weekend. Budget hotel, so place is basic.

nice art nouveau hotel good food and staff

Posted 26-Feb-2016
Pros: Design, food and staff
Cons: Some attention to detail
Location: easy walk in to your.. soe good resturaants on the way
This hotel is decorated in the art nouveau style a lot of which is original.. so needs a little decorating is true but put up with it because of the style and history. It has been repaired temporality in places but you can put up with that if you appreaciate these things.. otherwise go to Premier inn. Room was fine, mostly clean(topof wardroom needed attention). The décor was simple but the four poer bed was a pleasant surprise and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and hot water in good supply. The food was excellent and the set menu very good value. The staff were very helpful, always attentive and helpful really could fault them. Food delivered quickly, nothing too much always asked how everything was.

Amazing interior

Posted 22-Feb-2016
Pros: The interior of the main building
Cons: Furniture and fittings were a little the worse for wear.
Location: Did not have time to do anything as we were attending a funeral
Too brief, attending a funeral, to write a reasoned review
