We are delighted to announce that on the 6th May the BEST WESTERN Monkbar Hotel began a £3 million refurbishment programme. This development includes an additional 26 bedrooms & large conference suite being built on part of our existing car park.
From the 6th May parking is longer available at the hotel. We have established a working relationship with York Council to get the best value parking for our over night guests. They have agreed to provide us with parking permits that can be used in any Council Car Park. The permits allow you to park from 8am - 10am (the next morning/26 hours) for £5.00. One permit will be required per night of your stay.
The nearest York Council Car Park is 2 minute away (364ft) from us. Situated under Sainsburys, called the Foss Bank Shoppers Car Park. It is secure parking open from 8am until 8pm. Alternative parking is available for late arrivals at Monk Bar Car Park. Please see the York Council website for more information York Council Car Parks
Please be aware if you are travelling in an oversized vehicle that individual restrictions apply on all the council car parks. Foss Bank has a height restriction of 6'6".
We have a drop off area outside the hotel where you can pick up your permit and a member of staff on hand to direct you to the nearest car park.
Allocated disabled parking will remain available at the hotel for guests residing in either of our two disabled rooms.
Thank you for your patience during this exciting development. We look forward to sharing with you all the new developments along the way and our amazing new hotel at the end!
