given the positive reviews on here I was really quite surprised by this B&B. When I arrived felt like I was really putting them out checking in. I was even more surprised to find that the room did not have ensuite facilities but that they were down the corridor. On the first mroning the latch went and locked me out of the toilet/shower so I had to use one in an empty room. They cooked my breakfast anyway while I was getting ready as that was more convenient for them.
The breakfasst was a real 'yorkshire' offering - if the cliche about yorkshire people being careful with money. You could have fruit juice or cereal but not both? By this time I was wishing York had more Premier Inns.
On the plus side it is well located for the centre of York, which is a beautiful city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Monkgate Guest House is 200 years old and is only five minutes walk from York Minster and the city centre where you will find beautiful shops and restaurants and all York's attractions close to hand. The property was originally three Georgian cottages so it is cosy and rambling with the quaint features you would expect from an older property. We have two rooms on the ground floor and the other rooms are on the first floor accessed by a flight of stairs. Our breakfast room is warm and inviting and we provide a full, freshly cooked English breakfast with eggs cooked to your requirements alongside the other menu options. We have limited off street parking in a narrow driveway at the side of the house, you will be able to forget your car then and walk to all the amenities! We can however try to arrange more parking if necessary. Free wifi is available in the public rooms and most bedrooms. ... more less
