          Individual guest reviews

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            location was perfect. very nice room, bed was really comfy, would definately stay again.

            only one problem, the shower was a bit poor, head was split so water was going everywere, told the lady at reception when we left, so problem should be sorted.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The Best Western Monkbar Hotel came up to our expectations, having stayed in Best Western Hotels previously we expected the same standard and were not disappointed. We were invited to a wedding evening reception at the Merchant Taylors Hall and when looking for hotels Monkbar came up as being closest to the Hall, also we did a bit of exploring in York and found the location to be perfect for being close to the City.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Our room (Columbus) was enormous and well presented. The staff in the restaurant at breakfast were very attentive. On the whole, the food at breakfast was very good with the exception of the items referred to below.

            Checking in was efficient but not very friendly. At breakfast, porridge was very lumpy and croisants were soft and stale. Some easy chairs and/or a settee in the enormous bedroom would have helped to fill the space and provide more comfort.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            the location was excellent.

            rooms need refurbished in the lodge.

          • Group of friends
            3.8

            This hotel is not clean, the rooms are sub standard for what they charge.

            We had to change rooms 3 times due to failures in the rooms, the management's lack of interest. The whole weekened was spoilt by staying here.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Great central location, perfect for visiting York.

            The room was a little chilly, but it was -5 outside when we stayed.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The location is very good, the rooms large and the the breakfast ample and well cooked.

            The bathroom needed a refurb.

          • Couple
            7.4

            The room was really nice, great facilities in the room e.g television and for making drinks.

            The carpark was a little bit complicated but we were able to leave our car there for a while even after checking out which was good

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Excellent location, close to Minster, shops, restaurants and pubs

          • Couple
            7.4

            I was a little disappointed with our room as it seemed a little run down the bathroom was in need of a lick of paint and updating!

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Location near MonkBar and York Minster.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The staff. Excellent, every member of staff spoke and smiled any time you saw them. Nothing too much trouble and they all seemed to enjoy working there.Created a smashing atmosphere.

            not a complaint as such but our room was a little small, one side of the bed a bit squashed up against the wall. Didn't spoil our break though as bed was very comfortable once we were in!

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Food was good it was very clean & friendly

            The room we were in although it was very clean it was a bit dark and had to have the light on plus although there was a chain on the window I didn't feel safe to leave it open all night for fresh air.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The bed linen was nice and the room was very clean including the bathroom. The breakfast were excellent. The location is perfect for the town centre.

            The room we were in was also converted for disabled access and so the bathroom was a bit clinical looking. It was is a building next to the hotel so in the rain not much fun getting to and from the restaurant from our room. The decor was very 'tired', the bath panel needed changing and mix match of poor occasional furniture. Very expensive compared to a Premier Inn and the room and beds nowhere near as good. We only chose it because everywhere else was full as it was a late decision to go to York, but as a 1 night base it was fine, but I wouldn't choose to stay there again if others were available. Location was perfect though.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Comfortable and clean hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Housekeeping did a good job and we were impressed with the well stocked tea/coffee tray. We stayed over the Easter break and were touched by the offer of an Easter egg from the hotel -a very nice gesture. We did not use the restaurant or bar but would presume it to be of a good standard. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

            I would imagine the bedrooms looking onto the busy main road to be noisy unless they are double glazed. We fortunately had a quiet room at the back.
