The owner called me to say they would not be in when I arrived but would leave a key. I arrived at 4pm as agreed, no key. The owners arrived at 5.45, very apologetic but that didn't really make up for nearly 2 hours waiting outside a b & b. No attempt to phone me and odd that the business... More

Lovely place. Clean, nice room, nice linens. Our room was in the front over the road, but we did not find it that noisy. Super great cooked breakfasts. Close to everything. Very comfortable stay and I would recommend Monkgate!

Recently spent two nights here. It was in a great location really close to the city wall. I'm not sure I would have liked to have been in a room that fronted onto the main road as it did seem to be quite busy, but my room was located towards the back of the property. Compact, but clean comfortable and... More

Everything was perfect, clean and friendly. Only a 2 minute walk to the centre of York. Rooms are warm, clean and tidy. Great breakfast and hospitality. I would use again. Beds are comfortable,private bathroom is roomy, we had a triple room (2 adults 1 child) and also a double room, just down the hall from ours. No noise from outside... More

We had a warm welcome at the Monkgate. A good breakfast is on offer and the owners are very pleasant and helpful. Our room was warm, comfortable and the en suite bathroom was very good. It's a 10 minute stroll to the centre of York. Parking is available across the road.

We have just returned (literally) from a 2 night stay at the Monkgate. It was my wife's birthday and she had been asking of we could spend it in York for quite some time and during our search for somewhere to stay we stumbled across the Monkgate Guest House. What an excellent accident it turned out to be. We could... More
