Great Value Guest House

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The location is good and the price is right.
Cons: Only small fault we could find was the shower which was rather slow running - but that's nit-picking. Nothing could be improved really.
Location: 10 minute walk into York with all its attractions. Closest attraction is the Castle Museum which was well worth a visit.
Stayed 2 nights. Room was on the small side but had everything we needed - including hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. Couldn't have asked for anything more for breakfast - huge choice. People who run it were friendly and helpful, telling us the best way into town etc.

English guesthouse a perfect budget stay in York.

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Delicious breakfast cooked to order, pleasant location on a bus line, TV cable on flatscreen, refurbished bathroom.
Cons: Nothing can be done about this, but the attic room where I stayed the first two nights would be quite uncomfortable for a person taller than me.
Location: Moorgarth is less than two miles from the Minster, the Viking museum, the railway museum, and a fascinating monastery near the Mickelgate.
I wanted a quiet, convenient base for my York exploration. I could walk back and forth to the town to visit churches, museums and ruins of the city walls. The walking path was the lovely St. George Park with a river running through the center. The atmosphere at the Moorgarth was very cosy and homelike. A breakfast each day included eggs and meat cooked to order as well as coffee, yogurt, milk and orange juice. In the category of moderately priced lodging, this bed and breakfast is a really good deal.

Since geust house close to city centre

Had lovely stay at moorgarth very welcoming breakfast was excellent. Only downside was our room up four flights and had my 78year old mother with me . I mistakenly thought there was lift. Room was very spacious though for her and I and my granddaughter. Plus was at the back so no traffic noise.

Nice and Convenient

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: The friendly staff and good breakfast
Cons: A system of keeping out traffic noise, if possible
Location: Close to shops, restaurants and tourist stes
I had the top floor attic single ensuite room facing Fulford Road which was adequate for my purposes. The room was smallish but comfortable enough, after all, it's merely a place to rest your head in the evenings. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and the guesthouse was close enough to the city to walk there. Breakfast was full English and generous. Only slight minus was the traffic noise being on a busy road but solved that by closing the window! Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

Pleasant hotel near University

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Old fashioned charm and comfort
Cons: Speed of service at breakfast. All cooked to order but took too long.
Lovely staff, well kept, beautifully decorated rooms and the most comfortable beds ever with deep feather duvets. Nice and quiet all night even tho we kept the windows open. Well positioned for the University but easy driving to town.

Central base for visiting Yorkshire.

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: The location, handy for the motorway or walking into York.
Cons: Car parking could get a bit tricky in high-season.
Location: Walking into York you have the choice of via the main road or down the riverside. Twenty minutes walk can get you to the Shambles or the Minster.
We were looking for a central base for visiting North Yorkshire, this was ideal as it was just on the outskirts of York but walking distance. In four days we visited Whitby, Harrogate and Richmond - amongst other places, the landlady was very helpful in recommending sites and eating places. The accommodation was easy to find and comfortable, limited parking was a little awkward but not too serious, WiFi was included.

Great Break

Posted Jun 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a great stay at Moorgarth. the room was very comfortable with a comfy bed and nice size bathroom. Guest house was in a great location with easy riverside walk into City centre. Breakfast was very nice with good selection of food, well cooked and served each day in a pleasant dinning room by the owner who was very friendly and accommodating. Everything you would expect from a good guest house we had a lovely stay.
