The location is very good, just a few minutes walk from old town main attractions. The owners are friendly and helpful. The car park is very small, but they have an arrangement with a public parking across the street. Note that there is no twin room, despite what the booking site say. There's double+single room with a private bath down... More

Great value, comfortable, excellent central location. Very clean. good facilities and delicious breakfast. I only stayed one night, but I would definitely go again. Although near quite a main road, the windows were double-glazed so it was very quiet.

We booked to stay here for the bank holiday weekend. Booked twin bed room for 3 nights via Expedia. When we arrived, we discovered the room had been booked as a double. The couple running this guesthouse couldn't have been more helpful. They tried their best to find a room for the first night and when that failed they kindly... More

For our short weekend stay, to attend a colleagues nuptials. this was ideal. Welcoming and obliging hosts, (couldn't have been kinder - even though we were late arrivals), an elegant and comfortable room, + wi-fi (-free - Yes!!), delicious breakfast... In an excellent situation, we could walk everywhere. Add unexpectedly fine weather...! - cannot imagine anywhere could have been better!

Lovely and friendly owners who provided us with a map and advised us on places to visit upon our check-in. Beds comfy, fantastic, filling breakfast which certainly set us up for plenty of walking each day. We were in one of the rooms which has a toilet and sink in room and shower outside, the room was more spacious than... More

We stayed here for our mini honeymoon in February and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are quite airy and the beds soft. The brekkie's definitely set you up for a hard day's exploring of the city, which is literally a 5-10 min walk away. It's a perfect B&B for exploring all York has to offer.

Just returned home from York after staying at the Monkgate Guest House. We had such a lovely time. The guest house is such a quaint and beautiful place.....extremely friendly owners and the beds are to die for (unbelievably comfortable). Thank you very much for making our stay memorable.
