Reviewed 11 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment is ideal for whatever reason you visit york, it is close to the centre yet slightly tucked away so noise from the street is minimal! Sheena was brilliant, explained everything and made us feel welcome and the apartment was clean and had everything you could need! Will definitely be returning for out next trip to York.

“Ideal holiday apartment”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My second visit in six months and this would always be my first choice for somewhere to stay in York.
Well-equipped apartment, great location and an owner who couldn't be more helpful or welcoming.
Very highly recommended.

“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.

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.
