“Lovely modern apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

These are lovely modern apartments. We stayed in the 6 sleep apartment and couldnt have asked for more. It was spacious, modern, clean and kitted out with everything required in self catering apartments although we didnt eat in the accommodation. They are located 5 mins walk from the train station and approx 2 mins walk over the river to the bars and shopping area. Just what we needed as a group of girls escaping for cocktails, shopping and dancing!!! Will definatly be visiting again.

We stayed at 18 buckingham Court for 3 nights with our 4 children. The apartment was immaculate and so spacious. The owner was very helpful and when we arrived there was a bottle of bubbly and the heating had all been switched on for our arrival. The layout of the apartment was great as the kids could watch TV upstairs as we relaxed downstairs. It had all the comforts of home. The location is perfect as everything is in walking distance. I will recommend this accommodation to my friends and family. It is the perfect base to explore an amazing city. Thank you Nick.

We stayed at 15 Merchant exchange. a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the river on Bridge Street.
The views are excellent from early morning, seeing the commuters crossing the bridge into the city centre, to night time looking across to the historic Kings Head pub and the boats on the river.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one with ensuite, very clean but could do with a freshen of the décor as there were a few marks on the wall. The lounge has a big panoramic window looking to the river, and a small balcony, but due to pigeons was unusable. LARGE TV with full Sky package and wifi included, also waffles, milk, butter and a bottle of bubbly added to the level of care the owners provide.
Car parking is available and we arrived by train and is just over 5 mins walk from the railway station. The city centre is 2 mins walk away, but far enough to be quiet at night, but we did stay midweek so may be different on a summers bank holiday weekend.
Would I return- yes to York, and yes to this apartment.
Would I recommend- yes, and if given a coat of paint and the balcony pigeon proofed I would give it top marks.
I hope to return again.

3 double bedroom apartment - one bedroom too small to call a double, bed just fitted and no storage space. Both electric showers trickled, a body wash was OK, hair difficult, impossible for females. Apart from that, the apartment was clean and fine although expensive in comparison to other city centre apartments we've stayed in - could do with a little TLC and update

These apartments are just fabulous. Very good location and very high standart.We even had a bottle of Prossecco complimentary.
The only thing i would outlined is that the owner send you a confirmation by e-mail and BE AWARE that you need to read it. I did not read it but fortunately we arrived before the guests from the previous night left. So yes, make sure you read it.

There are many positives for staying in an apartment in York, and having a parking space, location to town and modern interior is on offer here.

I found accessing the property good with instructions from the owner . It is down a cobbled street so a level of mobility is required . I stayed in 2 Reuben's, which was on the ground floor and was open plan.

The quality of the furnishings was good except a the torn material on a footstool. I reported this and was told owners aware.

The cava , waffles and toiletries were welcomed by my daughter whom at Uni visited to celebrate her birthday away from cold student digs. Only a shower is in the neat bathroom.

The bed was so comfortable I overslept.

I will use again as the fridge and microwave meant I could please myself with food and drink. I did not hear much noise but did experience a delay in being able to move my car at the end of my stay due to neighbours parking habits.

Room Tip: Definitely have ground floor if mobility an issue, If you want a bath ask for another room

This apartment was delightful. We were up in York for one night only, to help my eldest daughter move into university. The apartment we got was delightful. It was nicely laid out, good interior which was clearly well made. It was well thought out, will all amenities covered. Although it wasn't meant to have breakfast provision, they were considerate enough to provide coffee and tea and all other necessities. Our apartment had a beautiful view over the River Ouse, with a balcony from which we could see it in full view. It was above a bar, but this didn't cause any problems. The beds were good quality, the bedding very clean (as was the rest of the apartment). Overall I was very satisfied with the apartment, the view, and the parking spaces. Would recommend highly!
