Booked one night at this guesthouse for a very reasonable rate. Wasn’t expecting much but was really pleasantly surprised… The host was lovely, and couldn’t do enough to keep us happy. Free parking on site was a great bonus, as well as tips for where to park cheaply nearby after checkout. Room itself (number 4) was great and had all the amenities you could ask for, including additional lighting and a fan. We chose the City view but I understand there were also quieter rooms at the back available. The shower room was a little on the small side, and the shower itself could benefit from a new shelf installing for toiletries, but these are really very minor points in what was otherwise a faultless stay. Will 100% be back!

Stayed tor two nights at The Gillygate . There's free parking around the back of the guest house , which is ideal if you want to park your car for the duration of your stay as if the car park was full you would struggle to get in and out but again it is free. Check in was quick and smooth and Mark the host is a nice friendly man with helpful information if needed . Our room was on the ground floor it was clean and very comfortable with a lovely shower room and apart from noise in the night from some other guests we had no complaints . Breakfast was made to order and was very nice with a massive sausage. All in all a lovely place to stay and would'nt hesitate to recommend or stay here again

Great central location Very friendly staff Good breakfast Good value for money for this city Very difficult to find the parking - no signage leading to it & at the entrance it’s no parking warning notice & space is very limited It’s via red stone arch leading to court yard. Room cosy but a bit too small & sink is in the room

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely guest house. Mark was very welcoming. Room was very spacious bright clean and comfortable with everything you could need. Breakfast was lovely. Great menu choice with locally sourced produce. Location is fabulous only a few minutes walk into town. Very near York Minster and Art Gallery. I would certainly recommend this guest house for a lovely relaxed stay in York.
