“Charming, Warm, excellent guesthouse accommodation.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

We are grateful for the recommendation to this guest house. Upon arrival we were greeted at the front door by the owner Maureen and her husband Phil, who kindly helped us with our heavy luggage. The Victorian Terace is impressive with a variety of rooms. We were thrilled with our large, clean and well appointed room. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. The shower was a treat with high water pressure. The guest house is located just outside the city walls, a short stroll into the city via the museum gadens. We were treated with a delightful breakfast with a great choice and made with care. The experience was enhanced by the friendly attentive service - ( thanks Mary)
Maureen and Phil were available at any time to help with any questions.
Our only regret is that we couldn't take up the 3 night special offer as we only had 2 days free.
When we next visit we will take this special offer up :-)
And finally we appreciate the free Wi Fi, this is a bonus for overseas travellers with limited internet access.

Room Tip: We stayed in room one, I would recommend this room for the space and large bed and fantastic shower.

we made a last minute decision to go away to york for a couple of days and couldn't have picked a better place than Elliots. We had a lovely warm welcome from Maureen and the hotel was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We opted for a four poster room and we were not disappointed, it was perfect. Breakfast was gorgeous and served by lovely staff who were chatty and smiling. We were close to the city centre and the museum gardens. We wanted a nice chilled out couple of days and thats what we got. Perfect. Thank you Maureen and your lovely staff, you will be seeing us again very soon. Dawn and Sid Coates.

Our second stay at Elliotts ..... 5 minutes from the town. Clean comfortable, lovely large rooms with everything you need. Maureen and Phil are so friendly and helpful. Breakfast .... excellent choice, cooked well served by 2 lovely friendly ladies, so nice to see such happy smiling faces so early in the day.
The only down side was that our 2 days there weren't long enough....next time will be longer!!

We went to York for a 2 night stay for a family wedding. We had booked 3 rooms. When we arrived, Maureen was so friendly and helpful. We had been given 3 rooms next to each other, and each room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Each room had an en suite and towels and toiletries were provided, extra touches like cotton wool and tissues were a bonus. The hotel was warm and comfortable. Extra bedding was provided in each room if needed. The breakfast was superb, cooked to perfection. The staff and service excellent. A very friendly hotel. Nothing was to much trouble, even allowing a family member travelling for the wedding to use our room to change for the wedding and use the car park. Thank you so much. The hotel is ideally situated, close to town but tucked away so no traffic noise. Will definitely return here if visiting York again.

Room Tip: Room 5, 6 (Four poster) ,7

We have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions and so decided to take advantage of the special offer of 3 nights for the price of 2 this November.The hotel is in an excellent position to take a break from using the car as everything is easily within walking distance.It is however tucked away on a peaceful street,so no noise from traffic.
The hotel is delightful ,spotless,and every thought has been given to their guests needs.As i am always cold I was very happy to be kept warm and also asked to contact reception if additional heating was required.
Breakfasts were lovely and the staff great. Sian and Anton

Room Tip: we stayed in room 3.

I have been to York on several occasions it is the first time I have stopped at Elliotts what a fantastic place, extremely clean and friendly with a good choice of breakfast. The room was very spacious and comfortable. It is situated near the Museum Gardens and Minister, so location is spot on. This visit was with my husband to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary but great news I will be visiting again at the end of November with my daughter, for a Christmas shopping expedition

Room Tip: Room 2 spacious and sunny

We are two Kiwis who stayed at Elliotts for 5 days early in October this year. It was suggested by the Information Centre as we had no prior experience of York. What a great stay. When we got there Maureen greeted us like old friends and said that she had juggled her bookings so that for no extra charge we got a larger room. She thought it would be better for us as we were staying for a bit longer. She and Phil were expert hosts. They have been in the hospitality business and were clearly still passionate abut it. The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were the the best we had had on this trip. Both the room and en suite were very fresh and very clean too.
