“Fantastic Place!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Arrived a bit early but that was ok with the staff dropped our bags off and went shopping. Reception staff are really helpful and friendly. We booked the 3 storey 3 bed apartment and the place is spotless and huge! I booked it after seeing pictures of the place I even took pictures myself and sent them to friends. Will definitely be back.

Stayed April 2014

My family had a great time staying here. The only fault was the noise. Apartment 13 is above a set of gates which were opened loudly in the early hours of every morning. It also gets a lot of noise late at night from the alley - better soundproofed windows would help. Also the apartments would benefit from blackout blinds. Staff very friendly and helpful and we had everything we needed. The apartment was very nicely presented and maintained.

My wife and I have just returned from York having stayed at the Lawrence.
We found the one bedroom apartment ideal. Comfortable doesn't really describe the experience with everything you need for a break " away from it all"
Try the food!

Our 1 bed apartment was modern, reasonably well equipped, and comfortable. Convenient for the town centre and railway station. Bathroom was good, except the shower was only top down, no hand held spray. I had a nice hot bath instead. However, the lane on which the Lawrance sits is very noisy at night time at the weekend. Noisy, drunken arguments until the small hours interrupted sleep, and as our apartment was right on the lane, were a bit worrying that more than argument might kick off. I found the heating didn't work terribly well. It seemed to heat the top half of the rooms, but not the bottom, so the sitting area seemed cold. Friendly and helpful staff.
One of the apartments that isn't right next to the lane would avoid the noise issue, and would have been better.
I would have welcomed the possibliity of recycling rather than just putting all the waste in one bin. And it could have done with several more hangers.

Room Tip: Not next to the lane.

We had booked to stay here for a night, but ended up staying here for two nights because we enjoyed it so much. The rooms are very cosy and nicely furnished, made you feel at home. When we booked the hotel, the staff were very friendly and was one of the most straight forward booking experiences ever. Check out was also very easy, all you had to do was slip the card into a box and the bill would be sent later. The location is great, a short walk to town. The only problem was that the bed was very big but it was made by two beds put together so you could feel the crack in between. The kitchen was very well equipped, it had all the necessities you'd need to cook a meal. Overall I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend this to others.

I stayed in the Lawrance York on 24 Feb 2014, the quality is superb and definitely the place to stay if you are bored with expensive faceless corporate "luxury" hotels. The Lawrance offers extra luxury, quality and the location is perfect. Staff friendly, nothing too much trouble. The Lawrence is a must if you want premium quality at competitive prices right in the middle of York. Perfect !
