“One nights stay”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I stumbled on this guest house while searching for a nights accomodation with my husband. We were offered a small room for £58. On arrival we were greeted by a couple who were looking after the B n B for the owners while they were on holiday..We were shown to our room which was very traditional ,clean and cosy. The breakfast was lovely and the hosts fantastic. Thankyou once again.

We stayed here bank holiday weekend with friends for 2 nights. The guest house is in a great location, is very clean and prices very reasonable. The rooms are lovely, quaint and very comfortable with a huge bathroom and 2 sinks. The breakfast was lovely and the owners are very friendly and able to give information on the area and recommendations on where to eat etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a great time in York, stayed here for 2 nights and it was lovely, the people were very welcoming but also very much gave us our privacy which was appreciated. I think our room was upgraded - we booked the small room - but when we got there were shown into a larger room with en-suite (which had a bath and shower). Rooms were very cosy and I felt at home there. Breakfast was included and served between 8 - 9am - it was very filling. The guest house was a 5 minute walk away from the centre of York, the Minster, City Walls, and numerous pubs, restaurants and boutique shops.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 - the windows were double glazed to block out noise from the road, but this was...

I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-May. The rooms were comfortable, clean, cozy, and quaint. It felt like home to me. I loved the owners. They were attentive and warm. They even offered to do our laundry! Breakfast each morning was delicious. The guesthouse is a little unique with the teddy bears and somewhat rambling hallways, but if you want sterile and lifeless, stay in a regular hotel. If you want character and charm, stick with the Monkgate Guesthouse.

we have stayed at this B&B before with friends and as a couple , this time we decided to bring our children aged 9 and 5 years.
we had a family room on the ground floor which was just perfect ! there was teddies ,board games ,books and dvd's .
the childrens bedroom was very nicely decorated with a jungle theme and jungle soft animals on each bed. there was also a tv/dvd player. our kids thought their room was "great ".
the breakfast was filling and cooked just right , the owners are very friendly and have a very good knowledge of the local area and could answer any questions that we had.
all in all we had a nice relaxing break made even more specail as it was Easter Sunday there were chocolate easter eggs at our table at breakfast it was a kind and appreiciated gesture.
we will be coming back.

Room Tip: the family room on the ground floor is very child friendly !!

Spent 3 nights up in York with the family. Took 2 rooms which were interconnecting. The rooms were spotless and there were nice touches like magazines about Yorkshire in there. Our hosts gave us a very warm welcome and were always ready to give advice about places to visit. The location was excellent, just a couple of minutes from the city walls and about ten to fifteen minutes walk to all the major attractions. Breakfast was fine. They were very accomodating. All in all a good find, and we would be happy to return.

Room Tip: We had a family room on the first floor. It meant we had two bathrooms. I think the one on the gro...
