This was our 3rd visit to Monkgate GH and once again we had a lovely stay. We come down each December for the Christmas atmosphere and we consider ourselves to be very lucky to have found this little gem. The location is superb and the rooms clean and comfy. Parking at the pub opposite is perfect. The hosts are also... More

I stayed for 2 nights to visit my daughter at York uni. As I was travelling by train this guest house was very handy to walk from the station and very handy for the city centre.

We have stayed here quite a few times now and have always enjoyed our visits. William and Jane are great hosts and provide an excellent vegetarian breakfast. They are knowledgeable about the area too. All the rooms we have stayed in have been homely, clean and comfortable - and always a teddy to welcome us!

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
