“Fantastic holiday home for whole family .”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

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.”

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.

“Made the stay special”
Reviewed 28 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Janet gave great service, and was easy to communicate with. The flowers, balloons, cake and prosecco thats she had arranged at the arrival made the stay extra special for my dad who celebrated his 60th birthday. The house was big enough for us, a norwegian family of nine with two small kids (4 & 7 y.o.), well equipped, and it was great to get to do laundry at the house after a longer travel on the countryside. The location is in walking distance to city center and Railway station.
Only downside was that the whirlpool was not clean(when turned on it spittet out black dirt) and among all the Kitchen equippment we didn't find a pizza rolling pin. But Janet reassured me by e-mail that they would fix it when I wrote a review to her at the end of the stay.
Other than that, we had a great stay at the house and I can recommend it to others visiting York in a large Group.

“A REAL SUCCESS STORY FOR OUR FAMILY”
Reviewed 21 November 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Minster House was a real success story for our family week in York. The space was ideal – bedrooms a good size & well laid out, living areas spacious enough not to feel there were actually 12 + people in the house including toddlers. For them too, the private garden was freedom outdoors in a secure area.

All the essentials being in place simplified day to day life, leaving us to concentrate on preparations for a family wedding. Mrs Jacobi was available to answer the few queries we did have. We really were delighted and lucky to have found such ideal holiday accommodation – and near to the city centre too.

“A birthday bash to remember”
Reviewed 18 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 5 night stay in this property which was with extended family members and was for a belated 50th birthday celebration. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay -perfectly located and super clean with loads of space for chilling out. We needed somewhere with more than one parking place and this one has 3 which was perfect as the 3 couples who stayed all travelled independently. The house had everything that you could need - including a fabulous whirlpool bath, and was super warm - much needed as the weather was decidedly chilly for our stay. We decided to add on an extra day and booked - at the last minute - to travel across the day before our guests arrived - may have been a last minute addition but it was no trouble. Janet, the owner had been in before we arrived and had set the central heating for us, and left us a few goodies to get us started. Communication was spot on and Janet couldn't do enough for us. Everyone of us had the most amazing break and it certainly gave me a birthday to remember. The icing on the cake though was the fact that Janet, had, by the powers of deduction, made her own enquiries with Guy Fawkes pub/restaurant where were eating on the Saturday night, and arranged to have a birthday cake and card brought to the table. Thank you so much Janet for everything and for helping to make my belated 50th birthday celebrations memorable ones.
