“Couldn't be any better”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We booked this house for a girlie weekend away. The house is so close to the centre of York we walked in a couple of times a day. The house is everything as advertised. There was only 6 of us but it was really well equipped and there was more than enough space for 12. There was also plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses etc. It really feels like a home from home. The owner was really easy to deal with and the booking process was simple. If you want a large house in a quiet area but only a few mins from the city centre then you couldn't do any better than this property.

“Does what it says on the tin.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I'd recommend this house for a large group/ family. Great location to York Minster, within walking distance.
The house itself was well looked after, clean, bright and spacious.
The owner replied promptly to any questions posed. Value for money.

“Would recommend, lovely house, smooth transaction”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The property was clean, tidy and to a high standard. Felt like home from home.
We were a group of 9 girls on a Hen weekend. Excellent location for a 10-15 minute stroll into town but a taxi back at night.
Booking process was easy with lots of useful information given over email and in the booklet it in the house.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Nine people, 5 adults and 4 teenagers. My wife and I, our 2 daughters and their families. We stayed for a long week-end.
Location is excellent. One of my daughters is temporarily confined to a wheelchair but we were still able to walk to the attractions and restaurants in the area.
On arrival the house was in good order. We really appreciated the tea, coffee and milk. Kids appreciated the biscuits too. Smaller children would have enjoyed the large selection of toys but ours were soon hooked up to the Wi-Fi.
Booking was easy and Janet, the owner could not have been more helpful. We followed her recommendation and dined at Mama Mias, an excellent choice for traditional Italian food. We really cannot recommend Minster House highly enough

person found this review helpful

I stayed here at the beginning of August with a group of my friends. We found the house to be perfect for us. There was plenty of space and it was very well equipped. The house was very clean and we could not fault it. Janet was very helpful from booking right through to after our stay. The location is great as it's only a 10 minute walk from the centre. I would definitely recommend this house!

“Amazing house”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Minster house for a week in August, the house is just fantastic, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need, very tastefully furnished, lovely comfy beds.
The owner Janet is so helpful, our grandchildren loved all the toys.
A ten minute walk takes you to the centre of York, there's plenty of parking too, all in all we had a fantastic time, highly recommended.
