Will be staying again very quiet Breakfast just £12 an excellent choice but the beige boring breakfast hotels charge £22 for and you get hardly anything. Staff attentive and personable. Can’t fault it and I’m fussy Room we opted for a quiet room no view but we were warned it was peace and quiet we wanted which we got. Booking again

We stayed and had dinner at the Elmbank for our 20th wedding anniversary , on the 15th of December this year and I can honestly say we could not have been made more welcome ! The staff were a delight , our room was upgraded to a large house room rather than a lodge …and it was so stylish and immaculately clean . At dinner we were given complimentary fizz to celebrate and the food was absolutely top notch , not praise given out lightly either because as a vegan , it’s usually pretty ordinary ! Not here ..my husbands fish starter and shin of beef were ( he said ) , delicious and my soup and butternut squash main were truly divine . We shared the vegan dessert to finish , then had a couple of gins in the peacock bar before turning in for the night . This building has always been stunning , but the recent makeover has elevated it to a thing of beauty . The staff were the real stars here though ( and the stained glass windows !) , who were friendly and professional throughout . I would highly recommend the Elmbank to anyone staying in York ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
