Stayed for three nights in 'Gates' and if we'd had the time, we would have stayed longer! When we arrived, there was parking outside marked by moveable bollards and we were met by Ron & Nicole who provided a parking permit to display on the dashboard.

Just had a wonderful weekend with excellent hosts Ron and Nicole. Beautiful room, "roofs" with quality towels, welcome tray, toiletries and even a fridge! Fantastic breakfast with everything you could possibly want served in a lovely bright dining room with candles. Ron and Nicole are a mine of information about York and even have a chalk board with what's happening...
