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

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.
