I stayed in Catherine's apartment for 3 days with friends. We were visiting the city for a reunion weekend having graduated some years before. During the booking process Catherine couldn't have been more helpful. She sent details and information for us that allowed us to make plans ahead of time for things like shopping and transport choices. On the day we arrived she waited for us at the long stay car park (which she kindly covered the cost for as part of the price of the apartment) and then she showed us to Stonegate Retreat and gave us all the details about the flat that we needed to know for the duration of our stay. A+ for attentiveness.

The apartment is perfectly located, right in the centre of the city. We were right on top of Stonegate with a phenomenal view of the Minster and a few steps from restaurants, cafe and bars. If you are looking for a well-appointed bolt hole for a weekend in York , this apartment is ideal.

The two huge bedrooms have mirrors, wardrobes and a hairdryer in each. There are plenty of plug sockets for all of your travelling appliances (phones, laptops and what have you). The showers were powerful and hot water was plentiful (but remember to turn on the hot water boost if you want hot water in the evening too!). Catherine even left a bottle of bubbly for us, which was such a lovely gesture.

We had an amazing time and all 3 of us would recommend Stonegate Retreat in a heartbeat to anyone looking to stay in a perfectly located and well-presented city flat.

“Beautiful oasis of calm in centre of York”

person found this review helpful

We stayed for five days as a family of four (with teenage children.) The flat is in a surprisingly calm setting right in the centre of York. It is a very special place and the owners have taken every care to think of every detail. It was amazing to be able to pop out to the hustle and bustle of local shops and restaurants on your doorstep, then retreat to this wonderful oasis. The owner was very kind and helpful to us and we wouldn't hesitate to return!

“Perfect oasis in the center of York”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment is in the perfect location - right in the heart of medieval York in Stonegate. And yet, even with the windows open on a Friday/Saturday night, it was wonderfully quiet and relaxing, with views across to the Minster in the near distance. The name "Retreat" is well chosen! The decor is neutral and contemporary - very stylish and chic. And everything about it was welcoming and high quality - comfortable bed, powerful shower, modern kitchen, "smart" TV, free wi-fi and an i-Pod compatible music system. We were there for just the two nights, but will definitely be returning!
