“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The apartment is very well kept and clean and tidy, as advertised. One of the best we have been. You can feel that every corner has been checked before you moved in. Sheena was there to meet us on arrival, and because we didn't have the map on time, she offered to pay for our taxi fare, what a nice welcome! It really made our arrival hassle free. A lot of thoughts have been put into the flat: the luxurious shower gel, flowers, bread and jam, tea and coffee etc are all very welcome, and I really liked the Easter chocolate cheat!

The apartment is very accessible - about 5-7 mins walk from the Clifford's Tower on the right, and 10 mins to the railway station. You will reach Sainsbury local in 3 mins and the centre in another 5 mins.

Would definitely recommend.

“Outstanding”

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week. Delightful accommodation, with everything you might need for a short stay away from home. Location is 5-10 minutes walk from everywhere you would want to visit in York - theatres, cinema, shops and supermarkets, and of course there is a car-park directly under the building..
The apartment is thoughtfully laid out, and Sheena has included a number of added value touches that make it outstanding - fridge and cupboard full of things to eat and drink, and also useful stuff from replacement bin liners to a comprehensive guest manual to a generous supply of linens.
5 star all the way.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Superb appartment, very well equipped with everything you could ever need when you stay in York. Sheena was there to meet us on arrival and showed us to our parking space under the appartment which is a real bonus when staying in York, Sheena explained all the workings of the appartment and was only a phone call away if we had any problems, it really was home from home and we thoroughly recommend staying here.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Well, what can I say. To say we were impressed is an understatement.
When we arrive Sheena was there to meet us, showing us to the parking space. Offering to help with any bags we had. Showed us round the apartment, explaining everything and telling us just to ask if we were unsure. She gave us a low down of where was good to eat locally and where the main attractions were.
The apartment itself was perfect. Having everything you needed from cooking utensisl, to extra heaters, water bottles, umbrellas! Choice of cds, dvds and all the tourist information you needed. Was great having wi-fi too.
We have stayed at various places across the UK, often in the middle of nowhere and you find when you turn up you have nothing to use. However here, there was washing up liquid, shampoo etc. Bread, butter, milke, cereal amongst other treats in the cupboard. Not having to go out and get oil extra was a blessins.
Would love to come back here and if you want a stressful stay in York, stay here! Thank you Sheena for everything. Great apartment!

Great apartment, well-equipped with everything you could need during your stay.
Fantastic location in the heart of a beautiful city and an owner who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
Couldn't have asked for more and can't recommend it highly enough.
