    We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Monks Retreat and were met by Mary and enjoyed a cup of tea with scones and cake which was most welcome,having come to,York by train. Mary explained all we needed to know about the apartment. Later in the week Philip popped in to see how we were doing. They are delightful and helpful hosts and Mary also called again to tell us about the Marathon on the second Sunday and to tell us the roads nearby would cordoned off. We enjoyed the Railway Museum very much and visited the Minster - last time was 35 years ago. Went to the Yorvic Museum and enjoyed status Three times! Went once to Little Betty's for coffee and cake and the larger Bettys twice, once for my Birthday and our Diamond Wedding Anniversary. It was a great experience and many of the meals compared price wise very competitively with other less attractive establishments.

    This was an outstanding property with very hospitable and helpful owners. It had everything we needed for an excellent holiday in York because of its facilities and location. The fact that the car was parked nearby in a gated area was very reassuring as we did not need to use it during the whole week. First class!

    Lovely place. Made very welcome, the owners left coffee and cake and even a loaf of bread. York is a beautiful city with lots to see.

    We found this property outstanding. From the warm and informative welcome from Phil and Mary, the cream tea on arrival through to the comfy bed and good nights sleep, our stay was faultless. The location was excellent being very central and close to the many pubs, restaurants and shops in York.
