“beautiful, luxurious apartments”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We have just stayed in these apartments and needed to review immediately as they were perfect.
Spotlessly clean and contemporary. It's very rare that the beds are more comfortable than your own!
Would definitely stay again. Yes they are a bit pricier than the average apartments but definitely worth the extra,

Stayed here for a night and couldn't fault it! Excellent value for money in a luxury apartment. A really good choice for people who want something different to just stopping in a hotel room. Staff were brilliant, apartments were modern, clean and huge!! Perfect location for exploring the city. Will definitely visit again.

What a great find! Five minutes walk from the railway station, ten minutes walk from the city. Well furnished apartments within easy reach of some very good eateries, all the tourist attractions and shopping - oh and very friendly, helpful staff. Absolutely perfect for a relaxing break! Would recommend.

Room Tip: One bedroom studio surprisingly spacious

Stayed for one night at the Lawrance and could not fault anything about the place. Lovely clean tidy and exceptionally well presented apartment. Everything you would expect in a home away from home. First class service from start to finish, excellent staff at reception and a real pleasure to stay here. You get a welcome pack with discounted vouchers for some of the sights and restaurants nearby. York centre is just a short pleasant stroll from the apartments and they are easy to find. There is no parking which is a shame but the NCP car park is directly behind the apartments and you receive a substantial discount for overnight parking by giving the staff your parking ticket to validate the card. I wouldn't go anywhere else in York this is as classy and relaxing as it gets for me!

As someone who spends far too much time in hotels for work, I try to find something a bit more homely when travelling for pleasure - and the Lawrance hit the spot perfectly.
The apartments are beautifully designed and having the kitchen dining area was really great.

A great deal of time and money has clearly been spent in designing the whole site which also adds to making this a special place to stay.

The location is also excellent, although this does mean that you need to park in the NCP around the the corner (discounted for Lawrence guests).

And finally, the staff were just great.

I really can't recommend this place enough and can't wait to go back.

Excellent standard of accommodation in a great spot. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Apartments were in a modern, secure block with good access for unloading bags from car. Good system for access outside normal hours.

Stayed two mid-week nights in one of the ground- floor apartments and thought it was really very, very good. Short stroll into historic centre of city, multi storey car park a few minutes away to dump the car, and with the apartments being in a lane set off the main Micklegate thoroughfare, no late night noise issues. The living area was a generous size, kitchen area very well equipped with everything needed if self- catering. The bedroom was slightly on the small side with limited hanging space - but the bathroom was huge and the shower vast and luxurious - which more than made up for it. For the same price as we would have paid for a hotel room - well, no contest, if returning to York I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
