Had a long week-end in York and booked Mallard as an alternative to B+B. It's a much better, more social and slightly cheaper way. You see a lot more of the friends you stay with.
Mallard is a very modern, clean and totally equipped ground floor appartment in a nice secure complex. Its only a 10 minute stroll from the shops and bars of the centre of York.
Very easy booking process with excellent communications throughout.
The house keeper who met us to hand over the keys and explain how everything worked was very helpful and there was even a few bits and bobs including milk and a loaf of bread to start us off.
Really enjoyed the whole experience and would not hesitate to recommend this place to anybody.
The flat was lovely and very comfortable. It was approximately 10-15 minutes walk into the centre of York. The flat was very well equipped and on arrival there was milk, bread and butter left for us which we thought was a lovely touch. Communication with the owner was excellent! Very prompt responses. Our daughter and son-in-law who were spending the weekend with us were moving house too on the day of arrival in York and the owner was very accommodating regarding arrival time. Would definately book here again.
Lovely flat, everything we needed and a lovely welcome from Simon. Brilliant location - didn’t realise it was so close to the heart of the city - pleasantly surprised. Will be staying again in the future.
You don't often get what you see from holiday rentals but Mallard Flat is the exception - it's exactly like the description - closed to the national railway museum, a clean and furnished flat and everything works (that's important)! Plus, some nice human touches - offering bread, butter and milk! The communication was also prompt and excellent. We enjoy the stay and we will be back soon!
We were greeted by Peter one of the flats friendly owners. He showed us round and was very helpful answering any queries we had. It was lovely to find that tea, coffee, sugar, bread, milk and other store cupboard ingredients had been provided. The flat had a double comfortable bedroom which was ensuite, a twin bedroom, a bathroom and a lounge/dining room/ kitchen. It had a truly home from home feel. I loved the beautiful quilted butterfly hanging in the lounge! The owners had thought of everything, from kitchen utensils, crockery, pots and pans, tea towels, bathroom towels, bed linen, to games, books, information booklets about the area and much more. Mallard Flat is a fantastic base if you want to explore the beautiful city of York!
Mallard Flat is a comfortable, spacious and well-appointed 2 bedroom flat located in York. It was a easy 20 minute walk into the centre of town and was lovely to come back to at the end of each day - very warm and cosy. All conveniences were thought of including heated towel racks in the bathrooms and every appliance in the well-equipped kitchen. A short or long stay in Mallard Flat would be highly recommended as it felt like a home away from home.
Perfect for two adults and two children - the flat was very well equipped and was nicely decorated and very comfortable and quiet with a lovely strong hot shower and a separate bathroom with a bath. The walk into York was easy and short and as the flat had a parking space we hardly used the car at all. Communication was straightforward and we were met on our arrival by the housekeeper Simon who provided us with all the information we needed. We would definitely come back and would highly recommend. Oh and we loved the amazing reclining chairs!
