“Perfect place in Central York”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A weeks stay at Emperors Wharf had everything for a happy family break in York.
Firstly, the apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. Everything you may require for a self catering holiday was there. South facing, it was nice to sit on the balcony in the morning and enjoy the sun and views of the river and city centre. The secure car park was ideal with York having a city centre which is conducive for walking. Maybe not so good in the floods!! The apartment is perfectly located on Skeldersgate which is 10 mins walk into city shops and sites. Rowntree Park is a 10 min walk along the Ouse and good for families of all ages with a good variety of facilities and walks.
York is a fantastic city with so much going on and a rich history through many eras. A recommendation is to buy the York Pass which can save money on access to the major attractions. That aside, York has many free attractions too with the highlights being the National Railway Museum and the City Walls.
Loved our stay and when we return to York, we will hope to stay at Emperors Wharf again. Thanks.

“Lovely Apartment in Great Location”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed for two nights in December as a group of four friends. Apartment is beautifully furnished, lovely and clean and has everything that you would need for a short stay. Views across the river are fantastic and comfortable seating is provided on the balcony upon which we enjoyed a glass of champagne even though it was the middle of winter!!
Great communication from the owner and Sean was also very helpful when providing access and information about the apartment.
It is less than a five minute walk into the centre of York but in a peaceful and quiet location - the only noise disturbance is the occasional duck on the river!!
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will certainly return - we had a fantastic weekend.

“Perfect place to stay in York, second time there.”

This is such a great apartment to stay in York I have been here once before a few years ago and would be stopping here again a couple of weeks ago.

One of the big changes I did notice is the kitchen has been completely redone since the last time I was here and it looks fantastic. All the amenities you need are right there and Sean showed me how to use the new oven and was really helpful getting me settled in.

Simply can not complain it was the best, it still is the best.

Worth every penny.

“44 Emperors Wharf”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Excellent accommodation and very clean with all items you need for self catering provided. Ideal location for walking to York centre and as a central point for discovering the surrounding area by car.
The only small negative was the underground car parking. The car park is difficult to access with a large car and it is not helped when cleaners park their cars on the ramp as it is then very difficult to manoeuvre through a narrow entrance at right angles to the ramp.There was then a situation that occurred whereby there was a "rogue" car parked in the allocated car space for the rented unit. This is not what you want to deal with after a 3 hour drive.However, Sean sorted out the problem for us.

Hi Brian I am sorry you had problems with the parking, this is the first time in 12 years that anyone has parked in our space without permission. We did find you an adjacent space right away so hopefully it did not inconvenience you too much.
