Arrived here just before midday and although check-in was late afternoon, the room was ready for us to use straight away. Not only that, but the man from the guest house stood outside so I could find the place and also moved his car so I could park mine. He then helped me with my bags to the room after... More

My partner and I enjoyed our annual York stay in this charming little guest house. We received a lovely warm welcome from our host, who showed us to our cosy little room. Room 2 is a small double, with a small loo ensuite and a private shower just next to the room. Everything was clean and tidy, and we were... More

Was here on business or a week and it was a wonderful experience. It is located just under ten minutes from historical city centre. The breakfasts are so good and filling! My room was really comfortable and having the shower next door worked out better than I'd imagined. Having a small kettle in the room and daily good Yorkshire tea... More

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and the Monkgate Guesthouse ticked all the boxes: Tasty breakfast, clean and comfortable room, very friendly and helpful hosts who gave us some great tips of what to see and do, great location just 5-10mins walk from the old town. Parking also free next to the building in a narrow driveway, so take... More

Just got back from a 2 night break in York with my husband and 10 year old son. Lovely guest house situated 5 mins walk from the centre. Greeted by owners on arrival who showed us where to park in the pub opposite and offered helpful advice on places to visit and eat at. Nice cosy room with huge en-suite... More

For me a guest house needs to be - welcoming - clean - comfortable - good breakfast - good service - good value for money - close enough to access the places of interest ideally by walking. Well the Monkgate ticked all those boxes easily for us. Our hosts were very welcoming. The bed was one of the most comfortable... More

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.
