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

We stayed for 2 nights in the family room with our 18 month old toddler. There is a separate room for children (2 twin beds but room for the travel cot) with a plentiful supply of soft toys and games. The rooms were comfortable with good storage, although because the building is old the rooms can get quite cold -... More

We stayed over Christmas, after having to rearrange our trip. There was no problem what so ever, the rooms were clean and tidy, the Breakfast was great. Its only a 2 minute walk from York centre so we were able to keep nipping back with shopping. They allow you to park over the Road in a large car park. Keep... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monkgate Guest House is 200 years old and is only five minutes walk from York Minster and the city centre where you will find beautiful shops and restaurants and all York's attractions close to hand. The property was originally three Georgian cottages so it is cosy and rambling with the quaint features you would expect from an older property. We have two rooms on the ground floor and the other rooms are on the first floor accessed by a flight of stairs. Our breakfast room is warm and inviting and we provide a full, freshly cooked English breakfast with eggs cooked to your requirements alongside the other menu options. We have limited off street parking in a narrow driveway at the side of the house, you will be able to forget your car then and walk to all the amenities! We can however try to arrange more parking if necessary. Free wifi is availabe in the public rooms and most bedrooms. ... more   less
