When do you want to stay?

Placed about 8 minutes walk strait down the road from York city walls and its Royal entrance called Micklegate Bar. The Victorian period building in which you can stay has a number of classic features for you to enjoy within it. Keeping the place in character means you get a real feel of what the city is made of.

Our location close to the city walls puts you within walking distance of the major attractions in this cathedral city. As you walk into town through Micklegate Bar remind yourself that this is the gate the Queen uses when she comes here as well.

All of our rooms have ensuite facilities for your privacy. The are also equipped to modern standards. So you get the best of the old and the best of the new when you stay with us.

The character of the building strikes you immediately you see it. It continues to shine through as you walk through the front door. The high Victorian ceilings give you an immediate feeling of space and elegance. The lush furnishings and splendid wooden staircase let you know you are staying in a historic city with charm.

We have a splendid restaurant in house that serves you up a great meal each morning and evening if you so choose. There is also a hotel bar here for you to enjoy a night cap with your loved ones and unwind after a day out in the city.

Ancient and modern, medieval and mystical, our city founded by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago is steeped in history and waiting for you to discover its delights.

York Minster - the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe and the Jorvik Viking Centre are the most visited sites in York. Warriors, craftsmen and traders who made their mark on this fine city. Marvellous museums paying tribute to Art, Brewery, Rail, Richard III, Castle and Dungeon are all top priority. For Theatre goers - Theatre Royal and the Grand Opera House are two of the favourites.

View the city from a different vantage point by taking a boat trip down the river, sun yourself on the sun decks, enjoy the English summer and sip something cool whilst taking in all the sights.

Leisurely lunches, coffees and people watching whilst you relax and then perhaps head for some serious shopping along Coney, Parliament and Spurriergate. Browse around the ancient streets where the ladies of the night once frequented - Grape Street - now home to exclusive shops and restaurants, Petergate and Goodramgate - home to the oldest row of houses dating back to the 14th century.

Take a tour around the city walls, part-take in a ghost hunt and perhaps visit the psychic museum on Stonegate for some insightful and interesting Revelations.

Rating of 1.14 out of 5  Unique ID (99442191)

Guests Name: Allan  was travelling as Mature couple

Bad stuff: From the moment I stepped in the door until the moment I left. Extremely poor accomodation, dirty, unhelpful/uncaring staff.

Overall: Had payment not been demanded as soon as we stepped in the door - we would have left within 10 minutes of arrival.

This Guests Rating Bar for 2.86 

Rating of 2.86 out of 5  Unique ID (2411091)

Guests Name: Nicholas G  was travelling as Mature couple

Good stuff: The location. The rooms in the Elmbank lodge. The patina of the hotel itself.

Bad stuff: Customer service.

Overall: We were staying in York to visit our son who is at the University. We ended up using the hotel just as somewhere to sleep which was perfectly satisfactory however:- Reception were unable to accept my Credit Card to pay for the room since it was not of the Chip & Pin variety though a perfectly valid card. Fortunately I had sufficient cash to pay for the room but what would have happened if I had not? The staff were very offhand and not helpful in this situation. We asked about an electric fan for the room - it was very hot weather - and were informed somewhat curtly that they had neither air conditioning nor fans. When trying to book the room, we had forgotten it was Royal Ascot at York week. Whether prices were inflated just for the week I don't know but 105 for the room excluding breakfast (at an additional 10 each! - we didn't bother) and 3 for a pint of beer all felt a bit of a rip off. We would not stay there again if rooms in other hotels (which we did attempt to book but because of Ascot, availability was a problem) were available. I'd rather pay a bit more in a really good hotel rather than get ripped off in this one.
