Lovely apartments, well equipped and very comfortable. Located in the centre of York. 2 mins walk from shops so no need to use car. Sainsburys store 1 min walk. Highly recommend.
We are two Aussie couples who recently stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, apartment, number 5. The apartment is perfectly located right beside the City Walls and the City Gate and a short walk to all the highlights, coffee shops, restaurants and shops. Parking is available on site which meant we didn't need to use the car at all during our stay. The apartment was well designed, so comfortable, spacious, exceptionally clean and well equipped. The warm, friendly, helpful staff greeted us on arrival and ensured our every need was met. We will certainly be highly recommending Monkbar Mews to our friends in Australia as a wonderful place to stay in York.
Stayed at Monkbar Mews for a `friends` reunion. Excellent base only 5 mins from the Minster and walkable to all tourist facilities. Clean, modern with a view of the walls. Welcoming bottle of Prosecco was a nice touch. Right next door to a bar and round the corner from the Award winning Bombay Spice restaurant, whose Indian delicacies we sampled.
The location could not have been any better, looking out onto the walls.
Everything was very new and very clean. We had a bottle of prosecco left for us. There was milk and butter in the fridge, teabags, coffee and sugar. Also there was washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. It was great to arrive and get a cuppa straight away.
The 2 bedrooms upstairs had no wardrobes to hang anything up. There were 3 drawers in the ensuite but no one thought it was a good idea to put clothes in them.
The beds were extremely comfortable and in the centre of the rooms. Unfortunately any where else was in the eaves which were extremely low. You had to be extremely careful not to bash your head on the ceiling and window frame. It is very painful, I know this because I was not careful enough.
The rental was ideal for a couple of nights but I would not want to stay any longer.
