“Great house in a great location”

We (my family of 4 with my uncle and aunt) spent 3 nights at the Minster Bells as a base to explore York and to attend my brothers wedding at York Maze. The house was superb, plenty of space for the six of us and we could not fault it. Clean and tidy with York literally on the doorstep. Would definitely return in the future.

“perfect weekend”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

From start to finish this was the perfect venue to celebrate my best friend's hen party. Janet was so helpful and informative and made the stress of organising a hen party mimimal. The house itself is ideally situated approx 5 minutes walk from the minster making getting about and into the centre no problem at all. House was immaculate on arrival and very comfortable living for the 3 nights we stayed there... Janet had even kindly decorated the house with ballons and banners which I had sent which were greatly received by all on arrival!
At times a little noise from the main road can be heard, however this was no issue to us but I can imagine this could concern some people.
Overall nothing but positive remarks to make about this accomodation, would highly reccommend it!

“Absolutely Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed 26 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

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.
