“Fantastic location with caring landlords”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay in Gillygate on the edge of York. Good range of restaurants and the Cathedral within 2 minutes. With car parking we could also travel out of York and walk to the station to go by train on the Settle Carlyle route. Modern kitchen and bathroom.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I cannot find fault in one thing at Gillygate. The location was unbelievably convenient. The apartment was immaculate. Lynne was amazing and such a pleasure. She went out of her way several times to make sure I was well taken care of and that I was enjoying my stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, I only hope I get to come again!!

“Great Place”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed for 4 days as we were going to York races. The apartment was ideal. It is in an excellent location and there are plenty restaurants & pubs nearby. The apartment was immaculate and had everything you would require. I would thoroughly recommend it.

“Wonderful apartment in the centre”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed here with my partner in May 2014 and would wholeheartedly recommend Gillygate Central.

Location - Absolutely ideal for visiting York. You're a couple of minutes walk from York Minster (and the walk is lovely). The Shambles, Castle Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre, Clifford's Tower etc are all only 10-15 minutes away (and again, you'd want to walk it rather than use public transport as the streets are part of York's attraction). Restaurants and bars are plentiful in York, so you're never far away from a good food and drink.

Apartment itself - amazingly spacious and well equipped. You need not bring anything as Lynne has it covered. The bed (believe it's a super-king) is so incredibly comfortable, it was a struggle to get up each morning! The bathroom is ultra-modern and contemporary and although narrow, perfectly suitable for all (I'm 6ft and had no issues whatsoever). The TV/DVD, selection of DVD's and books are all nice touches too.

Lynne - worthy of a mention herself. Fantastic customer service and super-friendly, she really went the extra mile to make sure that my partner and I had an enjoyable stay. She even sang a note-perfect rendition of Happy Birthday!

I'd recommend Gillygate Central without hesitation and hope to return.

“Amazing gem in the centre of York!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were so lucky to find this apartment when it has obviously just been done up. The place was spotless and all the equipment was brand new and high quality. Couldn't believe the size of the living room after some of the small places we have stayed in. The leather sofa was really comfy and the super-king bed was amazing. My favourite was the shower room which was like something from a magazine. And it had loads of space to store all our toiletries. We had breakfast in the apartment but it is very central and close to literally hundreds of restaurants and pubs so we ate out a lot - all prices from top end to take away. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
