Cleaning could of been better equipment in apartment very basic not as luxurious as expected. Carpets stained Toilet had not been cleaned with Bleach in a while(brown at base). The Bath overflow was broken and very dirty (My husband fixed this)

Apart from this the Location was fantastic apartment spacious very nice area, but feel apartment is over priced.

Very glad to know that you enjoyed the quiet and convenient location of our apartment.

We were very surprised to read your comments regarding cleanliness, and would like to address issues mentioned below. It's a shame for us that you didn't contact us or speak to our housekeeper during your stay as we'd liked to have had the opportunity to show you how committed we are to keeping our guests happy, we'd have done all we could to rectify any problems quickly at the time.

We have an excellent housekeeping team and whilst we rarely receive negative feedback about cleanliness, they and we accept that our work cannot be 100% perfect every time. To encourage our guest to feel comfortable we like to have direct contact and we arrange for our housekeeper to meet every guest on arrival (this is why we don't operate a key-code/ let yourself in system). On arrival our guests are shown around and our housekeeper will always ask them to call him any time if any problems arise during their stay.

We are a bit baffled about your comment regarding stained carpets. Chris has been to the apartment today and had a very thorough check all over and there are no stains anywhere on the carpet. The carpet was brand new and fitted just 3 months ago. If we ever get stains they are spot treated as soon as guests depart and are professionally cleaned several times a year.

The bath overflow isn't broken but does show signs of corrosion (no rust or flaking). This is due to regular use and regular cleaning. Our housekeepers pay particular attention to bathroom fittings and keeping all clean and hygienic. We would however hold our hands up to a little staining on the floor grouting, slight corrosion on the bath overflow and a hairline crack in the sink which is hardly noticeable. These things are all bought about from good use and we do our best to keep the place in good shape by replenishing and renewing on a constant basis.

Our property is not 5 star and we wouldn't describe it as 'Luxurious', we aim for a good 4 star standard. With it's quiet but central location, garaged parking, free wifi, hotel quality beds and linens and other extras, we are satisfied that overall we offer good value for money.

Our rates are based on same sized 4 star properties offering the same facilities within very easy reach of the city centre.

We're sorry that our apartment didn't meet with your expectations and that you didn't contact us earlier during your stay so that we could tackle any issues or concerns at the time.

Best wishes
Rachael & Rob

Hello - thank you so much for your review and great to know that you had another lovely stay in York. Yes we've made a few improvements recently - new carpets, new TV and a bit of decorating to keep things fresh. And, we agree that Chris is great - he's been looking after our place and our guests for 7 years now, we consider ourselves very lucky to have him. Hope to hear from you again - our very best wishes, Rachael & Rob

“First Class Accommodation and Location.”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We found the Apartment to be luxurious, spacious and set in a quiet location close to York City Centre. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were impressed with the attention to detail, clean and comfortable surroundings with the added bonus of secure free parking. There was also plenty of information available to help us decide what we wanted to do during our stay and enough entertainment in the form of books and dvd's if we prefered to stay in. Everything ran smoothly from booking to leaving and we just wish we could have stayed a little longer... maybe next time.

Cannot add to the glowing reports already mentioned about The Apartment regarding location etc. My dealings with the owners and the gentleman who met us when we arrived was first rate, most helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Hope to visit again.

“Excellent location close to city centre, wall walk, park and local amenities.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Accommodation was first class with secure garage below for car.
Town centre is only 5 mins walk away with easy access to city wall, pubs, local shops, canal and park all just round the corner.

Highly recommend for weekend away or as ourselves, a week in York seeing the sites with our two children.

Flat also has free Wi-Fi which was a welcome bonus.

“Excellent base for stay in York”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Another stay in this excellent apartment located on the other side of Skeldergate Bridge with river view and within easy walking distance of the multitude of amenities York has to offer. The property also has a secure garage which is a real bonus as it means you can lock the car away and, unless you wish to travel further afield, leave it there until you leave.
The apartment is comfortable and well equipped and is highly recommended by us. We return every year, if it is available, when we need to be in York.
Apartment on one level, accessed by only a couple of small steps so fairly disabled friendly.
