“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I spent 2 very comfortable nights here while visiting the National Railway Museum and sightseeing in York. It is perfectly located for both, being only a few minutes' walk from the city centre. I was on my own and was made to feel very welcome. My room was very good and I enjoyed excellent veggie breakfasts. The very good service extended to helping me move my car through thick snow! Excellent value for money.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our veggie breakfasts and snow service! Lets hope we don't get any more snow this year ......but if we do we'll be ready with our shovels to clear it away!

I would highly recommend this B&B, I found the location perfect as it is only a short walk to the centre of York and it was also very handy for the train.

I was greeted with a friendly smile, the room was clean and comfortable with a great breakfast provided in the morning.

I would definitely stay again.

I feel fully satisfied. I strongy recommend this B & B. Breakfast is also good. Location is very good, too. The charges are very reasonable. Perfect. I want to stay here again when I visit York.

Room Tip: Nothing. I think any room is good.

We loved the location of the Mont-Clare Guest House a ten minute walk to the centre of york. The free car park was a real bonus. Our hosts were friendly and helpful .The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable and really quiet.
We are vegetarian and gluten free, our hosts provided a delicious plentiful breakfast, which met our needs well. As York has such a full programme of events year round we would definately stay again and recomend to friends and family.

This was our 3rd stay here & once again we highly recommend! Although Linda & Dave have left now :-( room clean as always, warm friendly welcome. Well within walking distance of local amenities.

Breakfast was delicious & filling with plenty to choose from. Free secure parking. Ideal B&B for all ages & parties!

Fantastic to be able to park securely, especially so close to the City Centre. Great location as everything was within walking distance but the guest house is also just slightly tucked away. Room was comfortable if a little on the small side. The two beds together created a kind of dip in the middle which wasn't too conducive to a good nights sleep. Duvets instead of blankets would be much better. Bathroom was small (not a particular issue) but there were toothpaste stains on the door and the bottom of the shower where the sealant / grout was could do with a good clean, as there was evidence of black mould / soap scum; this was also on the shower head. It was good to have use of a hair dryer and the plentiful towels were welcome.

Great breakfast - really good quality. Also the lounge area was very pleasantly decorated. Dave and Linda gave a warm friendly welcome, helping with parking etc and they were very attentive and pleasant. The local information given was valuable to our short stay.

Thank you for your review and apologies for the delay in our response.
We are somewhat surprised by your comments as during your stay no problems were brought to our attention and upon leaving we checked with you, as we always do, that everything had been okay but again nothing was mentioned.
We will of course take a look at the bed issue but we have always received such good feedback on that particular bed and how comfortable it is. However not all beds are suited to all people so we will look at the matter.
We apologise that you found there to be cleaning issues in the bathroom and we would confirm that these have been addressed. The issue with the sealant was not a cleaning problem but a change of sealant was required as is the case in many bathrooms following frequent use. It is not always easy to find a window of opportunity to change it so it has chance to set and the smell disappear before guests occupy the room.
We are pleased that overall you enjoyed your weekend with us and thank you for your kind comments with regard to the breakfasts and our hospitality.
Kind regards Linda & Dave
