Jane and William provide a lovely B&B experience with a delightful breakfast, lovely rooms and a great location to easily visit all the historic sites of York. They are located just off the city center so everything was very walkable. We’d stay there again without hesitation.

We had the family room and it didn’t disappoint. Super comfy beds, lots of period features in the room including an old bread oven! The kids room was adjoining so great for when they’re a bit older and we plan to stay here every time we visit York and we’ve stayed in many b&bs/hotels. Lots of lovely touches and our daughter loved the teddy bears!
William and Jane, the owners are a very warm and friendly couple and even left me a card and gift for my birthday.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. The B&B is in reasonable walking distance of all the major attractions in York, but just outside the old city walls so away from the tourist crowds. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting York.

Had a lovely stay in room 5. Very welcoming hosts, and a great breakfast. First night on my own as I had a conference to attend…taxi sorted, no problem. Hubby arrived the next day. Lots of advice at breakfast on where to go. As long time lovers of York, with sadly no longer any relatives here to stay with, this was a very welcome home from home in an excellent location.

Cracking stay at the Monkgate guest house. Stayed here weekend of 15th December 2017 for two nights. Lovely Christmas events in York and fantastic atmosphere in the city. With our two kids we’ve frequently had to endure family rooms in hotels but the family room here has the kids in a separate room so no need for bathroom parties whilst kids sleep. Great location and on site parking with lovely hosts who make a super breakfast. We will be back!

I booked this very last minute but William couldn’t have been more helpful. When I walked into the room it absolutely had the wow factor. So cosy and welcoming. I fell in love with the place immediately. I’ve stayed in many b&bs in york but this has to be the best.

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!

I am local to York and have we had three (friends) ladies from the USA visiting. We knew of the Monkgate Guest House so decided to book them in at this accommodation. We were not disappointed, and neither were the ladies. What a wonderful, homely and comfortable B&B. On top of that, William & Jayne looked after them so well They couldn’t do enough to make the ladies stay so memorable.

We have just spent 4 days at the Monkgate Guesthouse, the owners William and Jane are lovely, nothing was to much trouble. We had the family room which suited our needs very well. The breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse to others.

Beautifully decorated house short walk to town center. Husband and wife were very gracious and helpful. They explained what to see, told us about free tours of the city which we used, gave us maps, etc. Some of the friendliest hosts we have seen in our travels.

We really fell on our feet booking this b&b on our 4 night trip to York! The location is perfect for walking to see all the sights, the owners were very welcoming and happy to advise on locale attractions and were interested in our adventures! The breakfasts were hearty and rooms spotless so I would definitely recommend this to anybody going to York!

May 2017

We really landed on our feet when we chose this guest house, less than a 5 min walk to the centre of York & two of the best restaurants almost on the doorstep, the room was clean, tidy & cosy, even though the guest house is on a busy main road it was very quiet, owners were very friendly & welcoming, explaining about all the local attractions which was really helpful, the breakfast was wonderful & cooked to perfection using really good quality ingredients, we will return to York as much more to see & we will return here without a doubt

Host were amazing, couldn’t do enough for us. Premises were spotlessly clean. Really tasty breakfast with good quality food. Would recommend highly to anyone. Location suited us perfectly. Free car parking was a bonus. Just loved the teddy bears on the bed.

One of the best place we’ve been! The room is lovely and the structure is a very nice typical English house. Everything is clean and fascinating! Owners’ kindness and great availability is the real value of the Guest House! We really enjoyed having breakfast in a lovely living room with a classical music background coming from an old radio! How fascinating!!

April 2017

Stayed for a couple of days, first time in York, the guest house is ideal for location only a ten minute walk to the centre of York. Lovely couple who run the guest house full of information about the local area and places to eat, we will defiantly go back to York and wouldn’t look at anywhere else to stay

February 2017

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!

Absolutely 5* guest house. My fiance and I had 2 days, 1 night and the owners are very welcoming, friendly, helpful with places to see etc. Our room was perfect. Just what we expected and we will return later this yr.
