We only stayed in York for one night. Parking is free in a narrow driveway beside the building. We had a very friendly welcome. The Guest House is very charming and we had a large room (#5) which was very clean and comfortable. The location is steps away from Monk Bar and the wall, and most of the old town... More

We went to York to drop our daughter off at university and chose this B&B as a stop-over. They gave us such a friendly welcome, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast saw us right through the day. I would recommend Monkgate Guest House to anyone visiting York.

Just a short stroll from Monkgate, one of the entrances to the city centre, the Guest house was very comfortable, breakfasts excellent and free parking available nearby. Our welcome was a friendly one and the bed very comfortable. If there was any drawback, it was the poor internet reception in the upstairs bedroom.

Having stayed here for just 1 night as we were attending a wedding closely this was within walking distance and conveniently located. The rooms were clean, but cosy (a little small) but were sufficient for our needs. I liked the proper bottles of shampoo and hand soap. Pillows were good as there was a section of soft feathers or memory... More

My husband and I had a two night stay in July 2015. On arrival we were directed to use a pub car park across a wide, very busy main road. This was not a problem for us as we are healthy and mobile but anyone with mobility issues might struggle especially at peak times. We had a warm welcome from... More

Cute, friendly, clean, comfortable, welcoming. Good room size and very comfortable beds. We had one double bed plus one single. The rooms are so cute, with lots of little decorating details that make them special. We had en suite (with a tub), kettle (with really cute teacups and a cookie), wifi. Perfect location just a couple of minutes from one... More

Stayed just 1 night as we were there for a wedding. Handy location for the centre of York, just a few minutes walk. Our host was very welcoming, and explained every thing we needed. Room was very clean and comfortably if a little dated. Breakfast was more than satisfactory with good portions - 2 eggs, 2 sausages & plenty of... More

I stayed for 4 nights and I was made to feel so welcome. Defiantly value for money. Breakfast was fantastic no skimping. You are served at the table and order from the menu which makes a change from self service where things are left out and warmed up. I stayed in room 4 at the side of the b&b and... More

We visited this lovely guest house for my Husband's Birthday weekend recently. Our room was small but clean and pleasantly decorated. The bathroom was again small but well equipped for our stay including toiletries. Nice efficient shower. The mirror was odly situated to the side of sink which made my husband's shave a little awkward. There was a cimplementary tea... More
