“A beautiful, gorgeous place, so close city centre”
Reviewed 25 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The property is set so close to city centre- a few minutes walk and you are right by York Minster, you're in the city centre or you can be by the river or in the National Railway Museum. It is perfectly situated. The property itself is beautifully decorated - modern and yet complementing the period of when it was built. There is absolutely everything you could possibly want and to the highest of standards - fluffy towels, robes, everything in the well fitted out kitchen you could possibly need including tea towels, salt, pepper, foil, candles, every kitchen implement you need including a few bits like oil, tomato sauce. They have thought of everything. It is spacious and lovely, and even in the coldest winter, when the electric lounge fire is on it gives sufficient heat to keep you lovely and warm. The owners even left us some lovely scones from Betty's with the tea and coffee tray - an absolute delight. The bed is lovely and comfortable and the wardrobe and drawers are perfect. It is a definite home from home with everything you need, and is immaculately kept. We can't wait to go again in the summer.

Very comfortable first floor apartment, very central, easy to walk to Minster, theatre and City centre. Lots of cafes , restaurants and pubs nearby. We were there during the York illuminations week. Very clean, comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen, even milk in the fridge on arrival

“Very pleasant”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Excellent location and extremely peaceful considering the proximity of the main road. The apartment is nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen is well knitted out although I did miss a dishwasher. The sofas are comfortable but it would be helpful to have a couple of coffee tables for drinks. The bed I found very small but I am used to a superking at home! I totally understand about not having Windows which open, but this would be a real issue for me in warmer months.
All in all, a pleasant apartment but just falls short of excellent.

Management Response
3 Oct 2016
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time in York and the apartment.

Just to clarify the workings of the windows, a feature of this period property;

In the living room we have 3 original large sash wooden windows, all of which open to let lots of fresh air into the apartment. Similarly the bedroom also has sash windows to each side of the large bay which again open.

We have had to lock the large bay window in the bedroom as we found that some guests were not familiar with the care needed when opening and closing the window, which as an original wooden period window, needs to be handled a little more gently than a UPVC window that you may find in a modern development, which is perhaps where the confusion has arisen.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience of your stay.
