We stayed in Number 1 Reubens Court for 2 nights in October.
We had a very enjoyable stay although as well as many pros there were also some cons:
-Great location, only a 10 minute walk into the centre of town
-Quiet. You can hear the people above you although no more than footsteps
-The owner Nick made the arrival very quick and easy, good communication and the room were ready early which was great.
- The complementary parking space was good- we walked everywhere throughout our stay.
-On arrival we received a bottle of Cava, crumpets and a bag of shower products which was a lovely touch.
- The apartment was big enough for 2 people for a long weekend, not much longer to be honest, with more luggage we would have struggled.
-Sky HD package was great and you also had access to the Movie Channel.
-Free Wi-Fi, slow but still useful.
-Tastefully decorated, very neutral.
- Heating in all rooms including bathroom which had under floor heating.
-Apartments are described as 'luxury', they are not. Large stains and carpets, dirty marks on walls, paint and wood chipped away.
-Cleaned but not spotless, you can tell someone had stayed before you eg: dirty skirting boards, toothpaste splashes on the door, very rusty toilet seat.
-The bed was VERY VERY squeaky-almost uncomfortable.
- Shower pressure was very low and so took twice as long to wash hair.
-Most importantly, I couldn't see any smoke alarms and the only fire escape from the bathroom/ bedroom was through the living room/ kitchen area as the only escapes in bedroom and bathroom were high skylights which were obviously not accessible. However, the apartment is fitted with fire doors.
Overall, an enjoyable stay in York and reasonable for the price paid although certainly NOT luxury.
