“Amazing house”
Reviewed 28 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.

“Fabulous place to stay, perfect for York holiday!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This house was perfect for our York stay. Beautifully decorated, comfortable, and wonderfully situated, in a pleasant quiet area, and less than 10 minutes from the heart of the city.
As a base for our time in York I really couldn't fault it. A large, pro kitchen for the cooking, elegant dining room next door, and a spacious lounge to relax in the evening. The bedrooms were likewise well sorted, with lovely beds, etc...
The owners were lovely, down to earth, and absolutely focussed on making sure everything was right and that we had a top time!
Seriously, if this is your type of rental and price range, etc, don't bother looking anywhere else. I don't write many of these types of reviews, but this really was exceptional. TOTALLY recommended!

Fantastic place to stay for our whole extended family. Very well equipped, clean, good range of kids games & toys & genuinely a ten minute stroll from York city centre. Would definately go back in the future.

“Excellent accommodation, location, facilities & service from Janet.”
Reviewed 18 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

What can I say - from initial enquiry right through to leaving Minster House the owner Janet was so helpful ensuring that our stay in York ran as smoothly as possible. The location of the house was only 5 minutes walk from York center which was ideal for me and my 11 friends who wanted to be central but wanted the home comforts rather than staying in a hotel. The house was so clean and spacious, we loved the fact the patio doors opened up into the enclosed back garden where we could enjoy the use of the BBQ. The kitchen was fully equipt with every utensil you would need, it was especially nice that Janet had organised tea, coffee and milk to be available on arrival.

I will certainly recommend Minster House to anyone wanting to stay in York and will definitely book the next time I visit.

Thank you.
