Good service at check in and excellent breakfast. Cosy and comfortable lounge area by reception.Handily placed for the old city - Minster less than 5 minutes stroll -... More

Just revisited the Monkbar Hotel after their refurbishment, found the hotel really clean and modern. The restaurant area and food was good, with a friendly atmosphere mainly thanks to Steve. We have been coming to this hotel for about 18 years, found it had got a little bit dated, but now we will certainly be returning in the future.

Very clean comfortable room, but make sure the en suite is big enough. In room 211 it isn't. The staff were fabulous. The steak and wine evening was fantastic with excellent steaks and good wine. I would make sure that you know the difference between a standard room and an executive one before shelling out extra money. Although there is... More

We had a lovely 3 night stay here. Room on first floor easily accessible, very clean and well looked after every day. Fairly quiet even though it was on a main road. Very well located - within 5 minutes of shops, restaurants, bars and the Minster. Handy for most other tourist attractions. All staff were very friendly and helpful, public... More

The Best Western Monkbar, is extremely well appointed for visiting York. I had contacted them earlier in the week before our stay took place. Requesting a quiet room. We arrived very tired after the journey being extra long, due to bad weather, where we paid extra for parking and breakfast. And told where are room was. Which we then went... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Following an extensive £3m refurbishment program the Monkbar Hotel has been transformed into a stunning contemporary, boutique hotel 4 star hotel. Now boasting 125 individually designed and decorated rooms, some overlooking our Yorkshire courtyard garden, others overlooking the City Walls and some with a Minster View. As any true destination hotel our restaurant - The Yorkshire Bar and Grill - will not disappoint. A stunning bar and grill concept open for brunch from 8am daily, you will be greeted by staff with a professional yet relaxed approach, who appreciate the importance of great service - and great coffee! During the day you can take your pick from modern tapas-style dishes made with the best of Yorkshire produce or be swept away with an incredible restaurant menu. Armchairs and booths make the bar a perfect place for meeting friends you can simply relax in the bar with a glass of locally distilled Mason's gin and tonic or on sunny days enjoy a bite to eat in the beautiful walled garden. Produce is key, so our Head Chef Ben and the team have chosen incredible local suppliers to create a seasonal menu that will showcase the best of local produce and put The Yorkshire bar and grill firmly on the culinary map. ... more   less
