“Excellent home from home in York”

We liked this apartment because it's warm, clean, comfortable and roomy for a family of three to spend a few days in while visiting the city. It's close to the sights and Christmas market in York and there's a supermarket close by too. It was very sweet of the owners to provide tea, coffee and fresh milk on arrival. We will definitely stay here again.

“Cosy, well equipped, and good location.”

We really enjoyed our stay at Merchant's gate. The flat itself is well equipped (especially the kitchen, which was a pleasant surprise) and well maintained. We were pleasantly surprised by the selection of books, games, toys, and DVDs which were provided (our 2 year old son had a great time with these). The flat itself is well located with an ASDA across the road and easy walking distance from the city centre.
The landlords are very approachable and friendly.
We would definitely stay here again.

Liked best: The kitchen.
Liked least: The only improvement which I could think of would be the addition of coat hooks on the back of doors for the hanging of bath towels/dressing gowns etc.

Excellent apartment. Great location, close to city centre. Very clean and well equipped. The guest information book was very useful, however you could include some takeaway menus.

“Excellent position for visiting York”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Less than 5 minutes from the city walls, about 10 minutes from the Minster. Good Waitrose and Morrisons within 10 minutes' walk along ring road. Smaller Asda on doorstep for essentials. Second floor property very well equipped. Twin bedroom at rear slightly quieter than double at front. Spacious and comfortable lounge. Great communications with owners.

“Excellent, convenient and spacious apartment”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for two weeks with two teenage children. The apartment was spacious and very comfortably equipped and furnished. The weather wasn't great the first week and it was easy for four people to be in the flat without feeling you're ever on top of one another. The kitchen is compact with everything you need and still spacious for four people to cook and eat in, etc. the bathroom, again, was spacious with bath with shower over. All very comfortable and clean. Living room very comfy with all mod cons and nice touch that the owners have a cupboard with books and toys for all ages, also including a selection of DVDs. Lots of info on things to do in York, too. The building was very quiet and felt very safe. So was the neighbourhood. The apartment was very clean and it was nice that the housekeeper brought fresh towels after one week (fresh bedding could also be proivided at the same time, but wasn't needed). Although the building is on a corner position of a main road this was not a problem in terms of noise - very quiet from 7-8pm and at weekends. Another plus was the range of supermarkets very nearby (local ASDA across the road, large Morrisons 3minute walk and waitrose ca. 5-7 minute walk). Town centre very easily accessed on foot.

Another positive point was that the owners responded quickly to our enquiry and were very friendly, approachable and informative. The booking was well organised and went without a hitch. Also, the housekeeper was very nice and made herself available if we had any questions.

Would definitely stay here again. Hassle-free, welcoming and comfortable all round!
