“Friends Trip to York”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

I can honestly say that the Poplar House Serviced Apartments are excellent!!

4 friends and I stayed for one night on 26/10/13 and we were very impressed by the apartments (they lacked nothing and were very comfortable), the location and the welcome we received.

Shaun and Lil provided a welcome pack (tea/coffee, eggs, milk, bottled water, crumpets/muffins, butter, jam!!!!!) - a lovely touch and very much appreciated

The 2 apartments we stayed in were really lovely - a real home away from home if you have a stunning home!

Will definitely stay again and cannot recommend highly enough

Thanks Shaun!

From the moment we booked our expectations were surpassed. Shortly after booking we received an email from the owner with details about finding the apartments and a wonderful information pack about York's history, things to do, restaurants, bars etc. Perfect to help us plan our visit. En route we called to say we would be arriving a little early and were told this was fine, which was great. The apartment is wonderfully appointed with comfortable, well furnished rooms and the best equipped kitchen we have ever had in self catering accommodation - even plastic plates, cups and child sized cutlery, plus all the cooking equipment you could possibly need. Oil, salt and pepper, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, preserves, eggs, muffins, bottled water all provided too which was brilliant. Other nice touches were local guide books to read in the apartment plus a range of leaflets and cards for local attractions, restaurants and taxi firms. The location meant that we didn't need taxis however as we were such a short walk from the city walls - about 5 mins walk and we were up on the historic walls exploring. The bowling green and park adjacent to the apartments were lovely too - a lovely, peaceful view and if you are visiting with children as we were the playground will be a hit. A lovely trip to York, topped off by such comfortable accommodation.

This apartment is very lovely , clean and in good locations. As a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids), the room is spacious and very comfortable. Kids can play in backyard and there is a park closed to the apartment. So, this place is perfect for family with kids.

The host is very generous, helpful and very nice to the kids. We will come back again.

Cannot fault the apartment and facilities. We really appreciated little extras like laundry liquid, paper towels, olive oil, cling wrap etc. Also nice to have summer weight quilt on the bed in this weather. Easy walking distance to centre of York so didn't need the car during our stay.

Great apartment, lovely and clean. Plenty of room for two adults and two children. The little extras were lovely, muffins, eggs, jams, tea and coffee. A short walk away from everything. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed here just after Christmas and were very comfortable. As a family of 5 this is a much better option than an hotel, as there is much more space. The bay fronted lounge overlooks a leafy street and you are only 15 mins walk to York city centre. The apartment is nicely decorated (including Xmas decorations) and very clean. The host is very helpful and even nice to the kids.
