Monkbar Hotel Considerate Hotelier Awards 2011

The Best Western Monkbar Hotel is  situated on the edge of historical York city walls. It’s personality makes it regularly stand out within York’s  competitive tourism industry. Its commitment to being a environmentally friendly hotel has proven itself at the forefront of the green campaign.

Project based campaigns have been implemented throughout my time working with them, demonstrating its green credials is a real importance for the whole Monkbar Team.
