The property has affordable rooms and a restaurant and bar. The Elmbank Hotel and Lodge’s rooms each have a TV, telephone, tea/coffee-making facilities and a work area. A private bathroom in every bedroom has complimentary toiletries. The elegant restaurant and separate bar reflect the hotel’s Victorian character. There is an extensive wine list and tea and coffee can be enjoyed in the comfortable lounge. The York’s ancient city walls can be reached in just a 10-minute walk, and a further 5- to 10-minute walk takes guests to the historic attractions, including the spectacular York Minster. York Train Station is just a 10-minute walk or few minutes by car, and the Elmbank has limited, free parking. There is also a bus stop near the hotel, with sightseeing tours going in to town.
