Booked this accommodation on a last minute business trip to York, travelling alone. Easy to find on edge of city centre and very close to Minster. Parking was provided, which is very useful. Room was small, as advertised, but comfortable and very clean and well presented. The owner welcomed me warmly and assisted with parking and access instructions. Breakfast was served by owner and was freshly cooked, full English - very good. Had to ask for invoice which was provided from a hand written numbered receipt book. Not vat registered if that matters to you. Overall, perfectly positioned, parking, comfortable and great breakfast. Well worth a visit and reasonably priced.

Pros Great location. Minutes from the centre of town Friendly and helpful hosts We had the family room so it was spacious Cons After a day of touristing if you wanted to relax with the tv or wi-fi they didn't work. Poor reception on the tv made it impossible to watch and wi-fi was poor at best Breakfast had to be eaten between 8-8.30. Food was very average Check-in had to be between 4-6pm

Visited here after 4 years and must say the hosts where just as welcoming.Found it was smaller than our last visit due to the hosts getting ready to retire so downsizing. Room was nice and clean and quiet,breakfast was good,location was great.Added bonus is the off street parking a little tight but secure. Good stay thanks!

We are not too good at walking far now and the Monkgate Guest house was so handy for getting into the city centre etc. Our hosts were lovely as was our room and our wonderful breakfasts. Due to illness we hadn't been away for some time and we couldn't have chosen a nicer place. All the awards they have won are certainly well deserved. On the morning of Sunday 11th November we came down to find poppies on the breakfast tables, a lovely touch, and great attention to detail. Thank you lest we forget.

This was a lovely guest house within walking distance of York City Centre. It was clean and very comfortable and provided en-suite, tea making facilities, hairdryer, tv. and off street parking. The hosts William and Jane were warm, welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely little bed and breakfast just outside the city walls at the back of York minister. Very helpful hosts with a excellent home cooked breakfast. Very quiet at night so had no problems sleeping, would definitely go back.

This superbly situated guest house is a few minutes walk from the charming streets of York. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and offers a wonderful breakfast.The owners are more than helpful and happy to offer suggestions for places to visit and eat. I can thoroughly recommend this establishment and look forward to another visit.

I cannot rave enough about this guest house. I accidentally showed up early (long story) but the owners were absolutely wonderful about letting me take a shower, use a room before mine was ready, and sort myself out before going to a conference at the university. Breakfast was perfect. Owners also called taxis and helped with arrangements as needed. I cannot recommend highly enough and will definitely return with my husband.

A room close to the city with a car park and breakfast for £80! We stayed in room 5 which was huge, it had a double and a single bed and was nice and clean. I wish we got to stay there for another night. Also received a good restaurant recommendation 👍

When you travel a lot you occasionally find a B&B that is an absolute gem and the Monkgate Guest House is one of those treasures. A really comfortable room with everything you need. Great breakfast plus fabulous and friendly hosts. Plus it is only a short walk through quaint old streets to the centre of the old City of York, the Minster and about 15 mins to the National Railway Museum . Highly recommended.
