“Excellent location, spotlessly clean, very helpful owner.”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is an excellent bolthole for a stay in york. Centrally located meaning you can leave your car in the car park and discover York and it's attractions of which there are many!
Maggie was extremely helpful with both the reservation and welcoming us to the flat and explaining everything. The flat itself was spotlessly clean and had everything needed plus some for your stay. The bed was very comfortable and the linens and towels of very good quality.
I would not hesitate to return.

“Excellent, loved every minute.”
Reviewed 14 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A lovely immaculate apartment.
We felt at home from start to finish.
Maggie was really helpful and friendly and the groceries she provided us with were a big help.
Beautiful location, very central to all attractions, just a short walk to town and the wharf is lovely to walk along.
Plenty of things to do and see and lots of shops.
We couldnt ask for any more and will certainly be back and recommend to family and friends.
The only slight problem was the parking space for the car, which was a little tight for our large car.
Loved it immensely......
Thankyou Maggie.x

Delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and how much you loved the apartment. A return visit is always the best compliment! Although the secure parking is a big bonus, unfortunately it is very tight for a large car /SUV. If this is a problem, I am happy to discuss alternative parking for your next visit. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes,
Maggie

“Great flat in central location with parking”
Reviewed 14 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

A great little flat, nice decor and in excellent order. Big comfy bed. Very convenient location - just a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants etc. Parking space in basement car park a significant bonus.

“Excellent cosy flat”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a lovely week at 13 Emperors Wharf. It was equipped with everything we could possibly need (including a hairdryer) and the welcome pack was a wonderful bonus. The flat was cosy and warm (very important in November!) and the living room overlooks the hotel garden opposite so we had a nice view of trees. It's excellently placed for the city centre and is only a short walk from the train station. Although York is a bit of a trek from Wiltshire we're seriously considering a return visit.
