Really lovely apartment..So handy for all the attractions in York. The apartment was lovely and clean with everything we needed. Just a short walk to the centre of York with all its attractions. We could not fault this place and will definately stay again.
Many thanks to Tim for his help during our stay.Can highly recommend.

“Brilliant and cosy base”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015
2
people found this review helpful

I'm really glad that we booked this flat as a base for our new year celebrations in York.
The flat is just as in the pictures, aside from a new chaise longue in the seating area (brilliant for relaxing and looking out at the skylight views).
We immediately felt at home when we arrived; the flat block is quaint and quiet. We managed to meet Hayley, the cleaner, who was working hard to ensure that the place was ready for us by our earlier booking in time. Hayley was attentive, efficient and friendly; the flat was spotless.
The bed was comfortable and the kitchen amenities were more than adequate. We loved the Game of Thrones boxset for our New Year's Day hangovers haha!
The only issue we had (through our own error) was the water temperature the first morning - there are 2 switches at the top of the stairs that are very easy to mistake for light switches: these switches NEED to be on for hot water to run. We accidentally switched these off and didn't have constant hot water once the switches were flicked back on for about 3 hours. As a suggestion, a small sign above these water switches may be appropriate as I think most would agree that there isn't much that's worse than a cold shower, especially when it can be so easily avoided!
Other than that, we had a brilliant stay and I'd definitely consider staying again. There were manageable short walks to both the on-street parking on Farrar Street and to the entrance to the city walls at Walmgate Bar.
Thank you, Tim and Hayley for a wonderful stay.

“Beautiful Apartment But Poor Soundproofing”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The owner Tim was very helpful with regard to booking and in allowing us to gain access to the flat earlier. It's a beautiful flat with a lot of character and lovely furniture and a very comfortable double bed, which, as previous reviewers have said, affords a view of the stars through the skylight window.

On a less positive note, there was a mop bucket in a cupboard under the sink to catch drips from a leaking drain but I'm sure that this will be remedied. Also, on the first night of our stay we were disturbed from sleep until one in the morning by noise from the people next door talking and watching television. That, and constant thumping as people climbed stairs led us to believe that the flats are poorly soundproofed. Hence the reason why we have given the flat 4/5 as it disturbed us.

York itself is a beautiful city although it was subject to flooding when we were there. The people are very friendly and there was a fantastic atmosphere. The flat is a pleasant 15 minute walk to the city centre

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

A lovely little gem of a place only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Clean, airy and light and the bed was so comfortable it made it hard to get up in the mornings. Not too much stooping needed because of the beams. The kitchen was well equipped though the bin lid kept falling off because it was broken (small irrelevant thing). The place could only be made better by access to a parking space; walking a few bags etc from the car park was a bit of a pain but other than that we had a fabulous stay. Would definitely come back, highly recommended.

“Fun, quirky apartment - Mind your head!”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Tim made the arrangements to get in to the apartment super easy. There is a lift up to the apartment but there are a few steps up to the lift on the bottom level, and a small flight of stairs down upon entering the apartment. Layout is super fun, everything was very clean and welcoming. Kitchen is huge and well-equipped with everything you would need. Bedroom is clean and comfortable and the bed is an American King sized bed. Yay! The skylights were super cool and I only bumped my head lightly a few times.
Apartment is a short walk into town and the stroll takes you right by a great little restaurant, Barbakan. There are a couple of express markets a short walk away to pick up light food.
Overall it was a super cool, clean, comfy apartment in a great location. We loved our two-day stay.

“Wonderful flat!”
Reviewed 7 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Wonderful flat close to York city centre (10-15 minutes by feet), just near Walmgate Bar. It's cosy and well furnished, and you have everything you could need. It's well heated too.

The owner (Tim) is very kind and helpful!

We highly recommend to stay there!
