“Really helpful owners and a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2010

Jane & William went out of their way to help us when we had significant difficulties with our rental car. They also made sure we could park our car safely off street for as long as we needed.
The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of the Minster, museum and many sights.

I work in York every week and stay over in the Monkgate Guest house regulaly.
The rooms are clean and induvidualised, which is a very good touch.
The prices are cheap and affordable which is what you need in this state of austerity, and the owners are very friendly indeed and make you're stay truely an enjoyable experience.

Only stayed one night (thankfully). Accommodation seemed tired and in need of a modern touch. To be fair it was clean but lacked the cosy, personal touch. The teddy bears along with everything else had seen better days. The rooms to the front of the guesthouse face a very busy and noisy (with traffic) junction. Guests are very much segregated from the private accommodation...rather "them and us"!
The mattress on the bed we had was very soft.
Within walking distance of York City Centre. Lane parking very tight.
I would not choose to return sadly.

My daughter and I stayed for three nights and the owners William and Jane made us feel so at home. The rooms were spotless and the bathroom was exceptionally clean. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the location is excellent. We look forward to returning.

We stayed in the family room for three nights and it was a delight. The children had their own single beds seperated from us with a door, which gave us (and them) some respite!! Both rooms were very clean and very comfortably decorated. The children were very taken with all the teddy bears. Breakfast was delicious and served promptly. The location was great as it was close enough for us to walk into the centre ( 10 minutes even with a toddler dragging her feet!) but just outside the walls so as to be peaceful and quiet. All in all a very comfortable stay. Thank you to our lovely hosts, Jane and William. We WILL be back. See you next year.

Our stay in York was very nice, but it was made even nicer by our stay at the monkgate guest house. Jane and William were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble, help with getting around York, showing us where to visit etc.
The room was very pleasant, beds were really comfortable and all was very clean.
Location was very close to city centre which was nice.
Although we never came by car, the only thing if we did would have been the parking, but all in all the stay was BRILLIANT!!
Thank you, Jane and William.
