Testimonials

Had the pleasure of staying several nights over the Easter break. Hosts very welcoming, beds super comfy, breakfast on both days delicious. First time staying in a guest house but would recommend this gem to all!

March 2016

Great location, very close to the centre where everything is and rooms were clean and tidy. Comfy bed, great shower…. Brilliant stay!!!

February 2016

Everything was clean and tidy, and we were really happy with the location… It was 2-3 minutes walk to town!
Breakfast was lovely, all quality ingredients in the full English, and a nice choice of fruit, cereals, toast, conserves, teas and coffee.

December 2015

Was here on business or a week and it was a wonderful experience. It is located just under ten minutes from historical city centre. The breakfasts are so good and filling!

November 2015

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and the Monkgate Guesthouse ticked all the boxes: Tasty breakfast, clean and comfortable room, very friendly and helpful hosts who gave us some great tips of what to see and do, great location just 5-10mins walk from the old town.

October 2015

Our hosts were very welcoming. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve slept on and the breakfast was amazing.

October 2015

We had a very friendly welcome. The Guest House is very charming and we had a large room (#5) which was very clean and comfortable. The location is steps away from Monk Bar and the wall, and most of the old town is a short walk from there. Breakfast was delicious as well.

October 2015

Beautiful quirky guest house. Lovely owners we had 2 ensuite room 1 and 5, spotless. Valentine’s weekend roses left on pillow lovely thought. The morning of my friends birthday she was given a birthday card so nice just perfect start to a fab weekend. Breakfast lovely and plenty of it. William the owner was on his own on Monday and the service remained the same. We chatted at breakfast and William gave us history of York and some good tips for our days out. Thank you for a lovely weekend. York was beautiful we went on the ghost walk, the dungeons such a laugh but we’ll performed worth every penny. 365 public houses in York so defiantly spoilt for choice!

This was our 3rd visit to Monkgate GH and once again we had a lovely stay. We come down each December for the Christmas atmosphere and we consider ourselves to be very lucky to have found this little gem. The location is superb and the rooms clean and comfy. Parking at the pub opposite is perfect. The hosts are also very pleasant and helpful. Keep up the good work.

We have stayed here quite a few times now and have always enjoyed our visits. William and Jane are great hosts and provide an excellent vegetarian breakfast. They are knowledgeable about the area too. All the rooms we have stayed in have been homely, clean and comfortable – and always a teddy to welcome us!

Nov 2014

Lovely place. Clean, nice room, nice linens. Our room was in the front over the road, but we did not find it that noisy. Super great cooked breakfasts. Close to everything. Very comfortable stay and I would recommend Monkgate!

My wife and myself recently stayed here and what a good find, 5 mins walk to minster area and attractions.
On arrival was greeted by the host (William) who told us all about the attractions York had to offer, our room was small but clean and teddy was a nice touch, breakfast was lovely, we parked our car at pub (brigadier gerrard) across the road after a pint and chat with the landlord which was good because parking at guest house is up a tight alley. The place is an ideal base for York and William and Jane are great hosts and we will definitely return again !

June 2014

Ideally situated just outside the city walls, easy to find, very pleasant, clean and tidy. A very warm welcome excellent breakfast, would recommend to friends and we will stay there on our next trip to York.

April 2014

Everything was perfect, clean and friendly. Only a 2 minute walk to the centre of York. Rooms are warm, clean and tidy. Great breakfast and hospitality. I would use again. Beds are comfortable,private bathroom is roomy, we had a triple room (2 adults 1 child) and also a double room, just down the hall from ours. No noise from outside street or even next rooms!

Mar 2014

After browsing loads of places to stay and being unable to choose we decided on monkgate guest house, found it to be a great choice,our room was spotlessly clean and a really good size with a great ensuite,all top class. Hosts at the monkgate are very welcoming, very helpful and should be proud of their guesthouse being the age it is it has great character,Location couldn’t be better with a 5 min walk to the town walls and everything you would want to visit within walking distance, breakfast was good quality so everything overall was spot on, really enjoyed staying in York and the monkgate and will be back. Mark and Julie.

We stayed over Christmas, after having to rearrange our trip. There was no problem what so ever, the rooms were clean and tidy, the Breakfast was great. Its only a 2 minute walk from York centre so we were able to keep nipping back with shopping. They allow you to park over the Road in a large car park. Keep up the good work!

What absolutely kind, wonderfully friendly people who own this b&b. They were so accommodating, from helping us park the car when we arrived to finding us somewhere to park after we had checked out as well. The breakfast was beautiful, lots of choice and freshly cooked. This place is lovely, the added touches like towels,shower gel, bath foam etc really make you feel at home 🙂 Our little boy was overjoyed to find a teddy on the bed in the room for him to borrow, how very sweet 🙂
