“AMAZING, far better than a hotel”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I am a very very picky person and it takes a lot for me to be impressed, so for me to say I loved this place and would highly recommend it is a big deal!

The apartment was top spec, so clean you could do your make-up in the floor tiles, perfect location (5 min to station and 5 to the heart of town, with a Sainsbury’s just 30 seconds away). Plus it was nice and quiet and was fully equipped we everything we needed. A really nice touch was food for breakfast and a bottle of wine had been left for us.

This place is such a bargain for what you get and is far far better than a hotel in my mind as it gives you freedom.

“Great apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed here with my mother and sister for my daughter's graduation. We had thought about booking a hotel but were really glad that we didn't. The apartment was very central but in a quiet location. It had all the mod cons and more including free wi-fi. Very warm and cosy on a cold January weekend. Karen was there to show us round and was extremely accommodating. Even had a welcome pack with cereal, milk, bread, butter, orange juice, chocolate and a bottle of wine - was very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting York - much better than staying at a hotel. We hope to return soon.

“AMAZING APARTMENT IN A GREAT LOCATION”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

I booked this apartment for my husband's birthday in October based on reviews from Trip Advisor combined with the position and the availability of parking. The reviews were so good my expectations were high but the apartment was even nicer in reality. All dealings with Karen the owner were really positive beforehand and when she met us at the apartment so show us the ropes she was very friendly and clearly takes pride in the quality and cleanliness of the property. Firstly the location was excellent just minutes away from the centre, perfect for popping back for a rest when you need to. The parking was excellent - a dedicated space right outside the front door. The apartment itself was the best we have stayed in. It is very light, modern, beautifully furnished and decorated, and immaculately clean. The facilities were second to none too - everything you need + more including free WiFi which is a real bonus. The beds were the comfiest I have ever slept in (including my own memory foam bed at home) and the pillows were so thick and luxurious - I could have stayed in bed for the whole time. The addition of a private outside heated patio with furniture is also an added luxury. I must also mention the welcome pack which was the most generous we have ever had - milk, bread, butter, cereal, biscuits, orange juice, tea, fresh ground coffee, sugar, wine and cake was also included as a birthday treat. I cannot recommend this apartment enough and we are already looking to book again - we would not consider looking elsewhere. Thanks so much Karen, you have done a terrific job with creating a real home from home that is a pleasure to stay in and a shame to leave.

“Faultless”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We were impressed with the overall standard and facilities but bowled over by the care & attention to detail given that ensures our stay will be comfortable. The location is so convenient, it's just a very short walk into the heart of the city, however, the apartment is secluded, private and quiet. Perfect for 1-2 couples or a small family. If ever we stay in York again, this will be our 1st choice.

“Picked on TripAdvisor rating - and not disappointed”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

My review is coming to you from the wifi included with the rental. The place is spotless, well-located and caters to our requirements perfectly - 2 good-sized bedrooms, a lovely bathroom and kitchen and a comfortable lounge. Add to that the private gated parking and what is to not like?

Minutes away you have restaurants, pubs, shops and more.

Let me say that my family would often choose to stay at 5* hotels and this is a BRILLIANT alternative to that option. With an under-5, we appreciate the chance to shut him in his bedroom and relax in our own space.

When we return to York, we'd rent this place again without hesitation.

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Ideally placed to allow easy access to all the attractions on York. All sorts of shops within a gentle walk. Restaurants, cafes & pubs in abundance.
The apartment is lovely, clean, warm & comfortable. The welcome pack provided by Karen was more than enough to make us feel very much at home. Easy access as it is on the ground floor - no stairs! Quiet at night, very little noticeable passing traffic.
Karen was there to meet us as promised even though we were a little late.
We would recommend this apartment wholeheartedly & hope to be back before too long.

“Fantastic apartment in Central York.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is a truly wonderful apartment which is very well placed for exploring York. It was ideal for our family of four and was comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a great holiday. A five minute walk and you are in the city centre and it was also a short walk to both the Castle Museum and the Railway Museum both worth a visit. There is secure off road parking allowing easy travel to York but the freedom to leave the car and explore York on foot.
The owner left a welcome pack with bread, milk, butter, tea coffee and even a chilled bottle of wine, so considerate and a very nice touch. Would recommend this to everyone.
