My wife and I have been using this hotel to stay in York quite regularly. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the Minster and other local attractions. The staff are attentive and professional whilst remaining very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cosy and stylish, just what you would expect in a period hotel. The ensuite facilities are... More

We stayed 5 years ago and said at the time we wouldn't go again but after reading some good reviews we decided to give them another chance, so pleased we did, the room we had has been renovated and had a new bathroom fitted, the hotel is in a great central location 5 mins from the minster with its own...

We visited The Minster for a weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They arranged flowers and champagne in the four poster bedded room which was lovely. Great convenient location, helpful staff and excellent breakfast. It's perhaps not the most plush hotel ever but has a slightly old fashioned charm with, as another reviewer mentioned, slightly creaky floors and twisty stairs.... More

This is a small hotel near the Bootham Bar in York, within easy walk to the Minster and centre of York, and has a car park to the rear. We had a comfortable and clean room with a good modern bathroom over looking the car park. The room was peaceful and had tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel itself... More

Great location as base for touring the City with town centre and York Minster all within easy walking distance (10 mins max). Didn't eat here so can't comment but room was good with en suite facilties. No wi fi (except in reception) which is poor. So only 4/5. Would I recommended? Yes.

This was our third visit to York staying at The Minster Hotel and it won't be our last. This hotel is perfectly situated just outside the City Walls and about 5 minutes walk from The Minster. There is ample free parking, the rooms are very comfy, I love the shortbread left in the room each day. The breakfast is superb,... More

A lovely trip back in time with this older styled hotel. Creaky floors, narrow stair cases regency furnishings. don't expect a modern trendy place but a charming and comfy interior. Breakfast is good and plentiful, the rooms are warm and the beds comfy. The position is fantastic just a few minutes from the centre of town and free parking is... More

We try and visit York at least once a year, either with our 11 year old or just my husband and I. We chose this hotel for two nights, based on the positive reviews, the family room and the added advantage of free car parking as car parking is at a premium in York, whether you pay for it or... More

We were staying just one night in York and we picked the perfect hotel. The staff were so friendly, the location was perfect with parking included. Breakfast was excellent, we could not fault it and would highly recommend it.
