“What a gorgeous apartment - lovely decor, very comfortable and right in the centre of York”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I and our friends stayed in this lovely apartment for a long weekend. It is modern, clean and very tastefully decorated. It was literally home from home and we were so comfortable that we were happy not to go out in the evenings but relaxed in the cosy living area. It is situated within the city walls and visitor attractions, shopping, bars and restaurants are all on the doorstep. Although it was in the centre of York there were no noise problems and once inside our front door it was quiet and peaceful. We have no hesitation in recommending Stonegate Retreat for your visit to York - it is as lovely as shown in the photographs.

“Really relaxing! Fabulous apartment in central location.”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We wanted to take our family to York over half term. Our kids are 13 & 11 so all staying in a hotel is NOT relaxing. Found this apartment after some searching and then emailed the owner who was exceptionally helpful. The apartment is beautiful and so well laid out. We had a fantastic time, loads to do, and the apartment's central location was awesome. Really nice to forget about the car & explore the city. We did Vikings, castle, dungeons, railway museum, Minster & shopping. It's also the little touches when you arrive, such as milk in the fridge & tea & coffee that are really appreciated. Cannot wait to come back to York and we will definitely stay here again.

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.
