We have some exciting news for Minster House in 2021! We have built a very snazzy indoor spa and wet room called ‘the bubble spa’.

A great house which had everything we needed with plenty of room for everyone ( although the rooms and bathroom on the second floor are very small). The indoor hot tub was well used. The proximity of the house to the Minster and city is brill just a short walk away. We would definitely use again.

This is my second stay at minster house. This time with my husband, sons, wives, daughter and her fiancé. We were comfortable and warm. The booking process was easy. The location was excellent. We chose to go in December because we wanted to visit the Christmas market. The whole of York was buzzing.....a great weekend.

Minster house is well located in a residential street about 10minute walk from York centre. With 6 bedrooms it was ideal for us a group of 7 meaning most of us had our own room. We did panic a bit on arrival as ther didn’t appear to be any towels as shown on the photos but there is a large linen cupboard on the first floor landing packed with towels. The bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor are ideal. 2 of us were in the attic twin which is nice but I kept banging my head on the sloping ceiling every time I retrieved anything from the set of drawers also the shower room is tiny. The fixed shower head means you have to keep one door closed when getting in the shower or it will flood the floor. And I had to get dried in the shower as there wasn’t enough room to get dried outside the shower. I had to dry my legs and feet in the bedroom as no room to bend down. It was however better than having to run downstairs to use the loo. The kitchen is amazing and very well stocked with cutlery and crockery.

I rented this property for a family holiday, 9 of us aged 8 – 65. From the start I was very impressed with Janet’s clear method of arranging my rental and her provision of extra information. The property served us all very well and all facilities provided were much appreciated as was the fresh milk left for us upon arrival in the fridge. York is a wonderful historic city and we enjoyed our wanderings and (of course) our trip to the National Rail Museum (again). Thank you Janet.

We stayed st minster house as a base in York to explore the city and also go to the races. I really could not fault this house! It is very spacious even with 12 adults staying. All bedrooms are beautiful and the whole house was spotless. Our whole party thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I cannot reccomend this house highly enough. The location was perfect (5 mins walk to the city walls and centre of York) with a sainsburys local, pubs, restaurants and bakery all on the doorstep. Thanks so much! We will be back!

The house was very clean and comfortable and well equipped. York is a short walk away so well placed for access to the city centre. Everyone enjoyed the stay at the house and the city. The only improvements would be to update the 2 smaller showers. Replace the flush valve in the top floor toilet or descale the existing unit to prevent the issue with the water constantly running. This can easily be stopped as directed by the note on the wall but young children did not fully understand. An HD TV with full sky package would also be ideal but did not detract from our enjoyment in this lovely home. .
