Stayed for a weekend break with friends and chose this hotel for its convenient location. Overall the hotel was OK - the staff could not be faulted for their friendliness and efforts to please. Julia in the restaurant is to be especially commended. Rooms were as expected from earlier reviews - being in the older part of the building the... More

We came here for just two nights for a reunion, only having been on a day trip to York a few tears ago. Firstly the breakfasts. They were excellent with a great buffet selection, including porridge which was fantastic and a perfect favourite of mine. We have been to 5 star hotels with less choice at breakfast. The evening meals... More

Excellent hotel centrally located near the Minster. Spacious well furnished rooms. Very friendly & helpful staff. Excellent food in the restaurant, great breakfast. Dinner, however, although delicious was very short on vegetables, which dost con't the earth. Would recommend it.

I popped in here with a friend as the board which I had previously noted outside advertised 'Cream teas £5.95' and sounded appealing especially as it was a rainy day. Firstly, there was nobody to take our order, until a friendly girl was fetched and took it. We sat in the lounge area on large sofas which were comfortable if... More

Cannot fault the location. About 10 minutes from the minster and town centre, etc. The room was good A decent size with a four poster bed. A little dated, but had everything we needed. If one criticism, could have done with aircon. First night was a bit too stuffy, but 2nd night was better. Bathroom was a good size with... More

Great location for easy access to York and the all the staff were very friendly, the low score was because of the premium charge rates for an outdated hotel, in drastic need of a refurb throughout. I am only 6ft tall but had to cope with my feet hanging out the shortest bed ever and the bathroom was very dated.

We stayed at the Monkbar hotel for two nights for our 46th wedding anniversary. We did have a slight problem with the bath taps, but overall the hotel was very good. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We could not fault any of them. The food for the evening meal and breakfast was also very good. We also... More

This hotel is currently undergoing renovations and is apparently adding 20 so odd additional rooms. I am not sure if this is the reason but our stay was not good. As for the good - the staff was very friendly and willing to help. The breakfast was good quality and the service attentive. Outside the rooms the lobby and common... More
