Really enjoyed our stay. The locality, 5 min walk from the Minster was ideal, we could come and go with ease. With our own access key. Very close to the City Wall walk, will do that next time. Daughter and I had the attic room, two single beds up a good hearty climb upstairs. Loved the layout of beds, so...

Enjoyed our stay at Gillygate tremendously !!! Hosts were amazing !! Mark and his wife couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, parking limited so leave your keys to enable Mark to expertly move around the cars. Our room was on the main road but honestly we didn't hear a thing from street below...

Having never been to York before its always difficult to know where to stay, what is good value, distances from main attraction, railway station, etc. Having read the reviews for the Gillygate we decided to give it a try, it was only one night after all. We weren't disappointed. It is an easy 10/15 minute walk from the train station...

Even when we were leaving, there was an issue with parked cars in the back. The staff actually came out to handle the...

We stayed at this guest house for a few nights and we couldn't fault it except for a minor fault which was on the final night we were woken up early morning by a herd of elephants upstairs. Although I understand that the building is old and the floors can be creaky by they honestly sounded as if they were...

Difficult to find on a busy road and when we did we had to use guesswork to find the parking area. No one present for booking in and we needed to ring a number for the proprietor who was picking up children. Bed was uncomfortable and the shower tiny and from a previous century.
