    What a fabulous place to stay. Secure gated property. Secure parking. Very close to all attractions in York, no need to touch the car again after you arrive. Would certainly recommend to family and friends and would have no hesitation in returning to this property on a future visit.

    A most comfortable apartment. A warm welcome not only from the owners but a lovely afternoon tea, a loaf of bread and some milk, tea and coffee. Just what you need after a long journey. We really couldn't fault it. A bonus is that it is situated so close to the city. We would certainly come back and recommend it to others.

    We had a lovely time, the apartment was centrally located, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful and provided a delicious afternoon tea on arrival too.

    Our third stay in this lovely apartment, ideally situated for visiting the city of York. A quiet, secure location, very comfortable and well equipped. We will definitely stay again.

    Monks Retreat is a beautifully maintained cottage. We received a very warm welcome and informative description of York. We were very impressed by the cleanliness and equipment provided. Also very thoughful of owners after our long journey, to provide essentials and cake. The location was perfect and on the outskirt of the city walls; there is lots to do! The railway museum is a definite must and walking the walls. Whitby is only an hour away and certainly worth a visit. We would happily stay here again.

    Monks Retreat was lovely. The property was immaculate and was very well equipped for anyone wanting to dine in. The only slight problem we had was using the bath tub which has quite a high side but that is more a indication of our physical condition than a criticism of the property. Location wise, my wife has mobility problems but we managed to get around to most areas without ever using the car. It is a lot closer to the centre than it appears on maps. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others even though the rate was higher than some other properties we considered. In this case you seem to get what you pay and that is quality. also the little extras like the welcome treats.
