I visited York with a group of girlfriends for the weekend. From the start of the booking until the very end, Janet was amazing. She was informative and extremely helpful. The house itself is in the best place to get to the centre of York. Literally 5 minutes walk. We had the most fantastic stay. The house was spotless and there was tea, coffee, milk and even chocolate cookies waiting for us when we arrived. I couldn't fault the house at all. Fabulous and safe parking for two cars. We slept very well and were extremely comfortable. I thoroughly recommend this property. Thank you Janet.

“Warm, welcoming, and well placed.”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed in Minster Bells as a large family group of eight. The location is excellent with the whole city (within the walls) being within a 20 mins stroll. This means you can leave your car(s) in the secure parking for the duration of the stay if you are concentrating on the city.
The lounge lets you sit and watch the tourists and the locals go by, and the dining kitchen is roomy and well equipped. The double doors to the small balcony allow the smokers to remain part of the conversation whilst indulging. The bedrooms are all of a good size, with plenty of power points and mirrors. The main bathroom has a bath and seperate shower cubicle, the second floor hosts the shower room.
Another reviewer has commented on the noise, we only found it noticeable in the first floor front bedroom, but only during the early morning rush hour. (Gillygate is a part of the inner ring road.)
We would go back there without hesitation.
