“Fantastic value for money!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

This was our first visit to York and so not knowing the city very well, we were a little nervous about the quality of various hotels/guest houses and their positioning with regard to the centre.

As soon as we booked with Minster View Guest House we received a confirmation email which instantly settles the nerves over using a third party! Very polite, the bonus of this was also now we had more contact details should there be a problem.

As we travelled in to York we soon realised that the city was beautiful and so we couldn't wait to explore it! Upon arriving at the guest house we were greeted by Jodie who was very warm and welcoming, she showed us to our lovely room, she also offered to carry our cases as we were in room 3 (upstairs)- we did decline however, that's what men are for!

What can I say, the room was stunning, attention to detail was evident and the bathroom was out of this world! It had the most amazing views of the Minster and the bed was so comfortable I could have stayed in it all holiday!

We had a full English breakfast the next morning which was lovely and certainly did not disappoint. Jodie gave us lots of leaflets about York and the things to do throughout the day, so in summation - a fantastic family run guest house, right near town, stunning rooms and even better service.

Can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: Any of them should be amazing after what we saw!

absolutely beautifully decorated guest house with the most wonderfull accomodating host. My boyfriend and i were made to feel very welcomed on arrival, the room was huge and homely with modern furnishing such as plasma tv and power shower. The location was fantastic it was only a ten minute walk to the town centre, food was exceptional but didnt have any doubts about that seeing the breakfast award in the entrance, me and my boyfriend are already planning a trip back :-) xx

Visited this guest house for 2 nights in March. Very comfortable rooms very traditionally decorated in Victorian style. The breakfast was very good. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very short walk into York town - very conveniently situated for all the attractions - and yes there is a view of the Minster! Would go back.

Room was very comfortable and peaceful, and the shower was excellent. Breakfast was very nice. It was good to be able to check in at 11am, and the owner let us leave our luggage with her the following day until it was time to travel home.

No wifi, but we knew that in advance.

Just returned from a two night stay and was very satisfied with this accommodation. Met by Jodie who was very helpful and friendly showing us our room in the annexe. This was nicely furnished, clean and comfortable with all necessary facilities. Breakfasts were excellent with options for those who don't want a "full English" and efficiently served. It's only a short walk to the Minster and quite handy for the station. All in all a great option for anyone visiting York for a short break and would happily return and recommend to others.

Just came back after 2 nights at the Minster View Guest House. What a good place to stay. Staff helpfull, rooms etc clean, bedroom very good and comfy bed, great location only a 10 min walk to York Minster, free parking and a fantastic breakfast, its also quiet, so you can sleep after a long day walking. if you stay here you will struggle to be dissapointed.

Room Tip: breakfast is between 8 & 9am
