“The Monks never had it this good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
person found this review helpful

Clean. comfortable and convenient... Monks Retreat ticked all the boxes to make our week's stay in this splendid city all the more enjoyable - a great place to come 'home' to after a day's foot-slogging around York's historic streets (and walls) or exploring the surrounding countryside. Owners Philip and Mary Nelson were on hand upon our arrival to ensure we were fully familiarised with our accommodation and its amenities, explain access to the nearby secure parking, and share some of their knowledge of - and enthusiasm for - their city and Yorkshire more generally. A plentiful supply of guidebooks, brochures etc within the flat also helped us make the most of our week's stay. Clever use of the internal space meant that the two of us never felt cramped in what is admittedly a small apartment. We'll have no hesitation in booking Monks Retreat again next time we return to York.
