Brilliant accommodation situated a 5 minute walk away from the National Railway Museum. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We were met by Simon on our first day, shown everything and were made extremely welcome. Being able to stay so close to York and easily park the car at no additional charge was most appreciated. We are keen to return in the future......
Mallard flat is absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to York. Very cozy, comfortable and fully equipped with anything and everything you could possibly need. We truly enjoyed our stay here and it would be my first choice if ever in the area again. The location is super convenient to the train station, a quick 10 minute walk at most and also to all of the historic sights that York has to offer. Richard was always so pleasant to talk with (via email) as was his other associate who greeted us at the apartment. Because of a train delay, sadly we never met the housekeeper Simon, but it was always a pleasure talking with him via email as well.
Conveniently located for the train station and a short stroll into the city centre, the Mallard Flat was perfect for a long weekend with my family. The kitchen had everything we needed (including foil and salt, pepper etc) and our hosts provided us with milk and bread which was great for breakfast! Having both a bath and walk-in shower was perfect for our needs and we made use of the on-site parking space. The quiet location made it all the more peaceful in the mornings and evenings. Very comfortable beds too!
Richard's flat was the ideal spot for us to use as we took our time and explored the city of York. It is an easy 15 minute walk into the walled confines and is also right on major bus routes. We enjoyed all the amenities we needed to prepare our own meals and the living area made it a pleasure to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Everything was as we had hoped it would be and we highly recommend this flat.
My wife and I spent 3 nights here when visiting the lovely city of York. Foss Flat was within a 15 minute stroll from The Minster and the many other attractions. It has its own car parking bay, so there were no need to drive once there. The apartment is small but has eveything required with lots of handy extras and a very welcome arrival pack. Communication with Richard was excellent prior to our arrival and Simon was there to meet us on arrival to see us settled in.
My husband and I stayed here with our 5 year old son. We find apartments are a much better option than hotels with a child and Mallard Flat was excellent. The flat was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could need. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms excellent with good showers and a bath. Having 2 bathrooms was a nice bonus.
The flat is in a great location. Only a few minutes walk from the train station and National Railway museum and perhaps a 10 minute walk or £5 taxi ride into the centre.
Communication with Richard and Simon the housekeeper was really good and both were very friendly and helpful. I couldn't fault the flat and we will be back. An excellent choice, especially if you are visiting York as a family.
Very close to the Railway Museum in a quiet cul-de-sac, this apartment is very clean, comfortable and the owners go out of their way to provide a few extras that proved very useful on our stay.
We visited the Chocolate Experience, walked along the Shambles and the walls, went to the Viking Experience, (Jorvik) the Railway Museum and had a tour of the city by bus.
The city is very short walk away and there is parking by the apartment which saves any hassle with transport arrangements.
Thanks very much to Richard.
