“Beautiful modern apartments”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Only spent one evening in the Lawrence as came down for business with my partner. We were so impressed with our rooms and the building as a whole that we tried to book another night just to spend a little leisure time there. Unfortunately for us, York races were on so the Lawrence was fully booked. The apartments are immaculately clean and have everything you need for a really perfect stay, they even put fresh milk in the fridge. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was so good I am thinking of doing my own at home something similar.There were actually two toilets in our one bed apartment which was very spacious and modern. Air conditioning worked perfectly and windows opened to let in fresh air. I really cant find any faults. The small courtyard with tables outside was also a lovely idea for sunny evenings. When we come next time hopefully we will be able to make a bit more use of it. Congratulations on getting everything right!!!

Room Tip: choose a room near the courtyard, other than that I am sure if ours was anything to go by that all t...

Myself and 3 friends have just returned from a stay at the Lawrance Apartments. They are beautiful very clean and everything you need is there. The girls on reception were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We will return to The Lawrance.

The Lawrance are fabulous apartments and although I didn't sleep brilliantly, I would actually return. They have loads of room, are luxuriously fitted out and are very centrally located for the city. The staff are excellent and there is good, well priced NCP parking 2 mins away. It is also super-secure.
I think we were unlucky - first night there were jetted lagged japanese folks walking spa around in heavy shoes until 2am. Second night, a guy decided to play the MP3 until security came and told him to shut up. I did contact The Lawrance as I feel a couple of small tweaks might fix these problems - sound proofed front doors and a firm note to guests next to the MP3 players with a threat of deposit removal?
Apart from this, faultless and lovely. Thank you!!

We stayed over Easter and the apartments are fabulous! Very spacious, everything you could need and a great location in walking distance to all the attractions. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back.

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.

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!
