Great location,clean room,lovely food and great hosts.
Nothing to dislike
Owners very helpful. A good choice at breakfast. Excellent location for walking into York. Parking available behind property.
Our room (2) had a very small bathroom. As we were there for only 1 night it wasn't too big a problem.
Very noise road
Location , free parking on site, breakfast choices and choosing a time to suit when to eat breakfast.
I have no negative comments.
Excellent breakfast, very close to centre, on site parking. We will book again. We have now stayed 3
Location, Host friendly and rest of breakfast choice was fine.
Bathroom needs deep clean and some accessories hard to reach such as towel rail and mirror very high. Room just felt a bit tired and could do with an update. Breakfast menu was advertised with Whitby Kippers and what I was served did Whitby Kippers no service at all, so I suggest they are taken off menu.I am from Whitby and they were no way from Fortunes maybe they bought them in Herons!
Location.frendly staff.very helpfull
I loved the area very close to everything without ever needing transport
I little too expensive for a 2 day break away
Close to centre of York, and gave helpful advice, would certainly stay again.
Great hosts, extremely helpful and friendly, nice big comfortable room and shower room. Excellent breakfast. Close to the centre of York
Warm, cozy, homely env. for a private stay. Spacious room. Great staff always available and willing to help. Though the parking was at the back, I was offered help in carrying the bags to the room and way back. Food to the taste. Very close to YSJU and York minster. Not a luxury hotel yet a very pleasant experience. One of the best places in terms of friendly service and exactly as I expected from a guest house.
Wifi did not work with apple devices. But I was offered a discount on the bill even without asking! to compensate.
Free parking Location
The owners could have done enough to make sure our stay was the best they could offer. We arrived early and were alowed into our room with a very warm welcome. The day we left they even offered to let us leave our case till late evening untill we caught our return train home.
If i was being picky the location of the tv above the wardrobe, strange. Having the sink outside the ensuite also seemed a litlle odd but this wouldn't stop me from staying here again.
Really nice room , tidy nice size, very clean ans though it was room one at the front on the main road we heard hardly any noise. The owners were lovely and wven gave us a discount as we had a sleep in to stagger breakfast.Couldnt fault the place a must stay again establishment
Isnt a dislike the placing of the TV above the wardrobe on the wall was unique.
Mark and Joyce were wonderful hosts; helpful with information about walking tours, restaurants, customs. Guesthouse is an easy walk to York Minster, pubs and shopping. Our room was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Perfect for us.
the choice of breakfast, full english, smoked salmon & scrabled eggs or kippers.
location perfect off road parking a bonus staff very friendly food good
we found the six flights of stairs very hard with a one year old grandson the room was very cold on left hand side and very warm on the right? the window on the left had condensation all the time, with black mold under the frame.this room was not suitable for us with a child. there was no head room,and nowhere to relax.
Really friendly owner, room very spacious, clean and warm. Lovely breakfast. Wifi worked well even on the top floor.
Superb customer service. Breakfast delicious. Right in centre of City.
Room a bit too cold.
Staying at the Gillygate was a joy from the moment we arrived. Nothing is too much trouble for this couple - the warmth of welcome, the comfort of the rooms, the beautiful breakfast!! The bed was more comfortable than most hotels we've stayed in. The help we were given about the places to visit and giving hints on the best ways of getting there was great !! the only down side of the stay was we didn't stay long enough - I didn't want to go home. This place is in such a good position you can get to everything in York on foot. Park the car and just enjoy!!! that's all you have to do here.
Going home!!! There was absolutely nothing to fault at this place.
Excellent breakfast, great position for the City, Very clean accommodation. Very helpful staff.Would recommend to anyone.
Car park on the small side, but helpful staff to accommodate parking.
The owner friendly attitude
This being a guest house and not a hotel many facilities like wake up call or reception desk is missing. Bit struggle to contact the staff when arrived at guest house
Great location in the middle of the City! Beautiful room and facilities and fantastic breakfast. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming.
The free wifi was great, however didn't tend to work during the evenings of our stay :(
Very convenient location. Free car park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large room (deluxe double). Good breakfast.
