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.

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. Our room was small but adequate and had everything we needed. We thought we were the only guests staying as it was so quiet... More
