“Five Star Apartment”

person found this review helpful

Wow! Apartment 39 is more than as advertised and provided five star accommodation. Sheena met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome as soon as we stepped out of the car.

The apartment on the first floor with views of Clifford's tower and the city skyline has a riverside front which provides a great backdrop for this beautifully furnished, spotless and comfortable accommodation. We spent early evening with a glass or two, watching the world go by, with the boats and various bird life on the water there was never a dull moment!

Thank you Sheena for the various treats including the fizz and next day's breakfast - really appreciated.

Highly recommended for that perfect city break to York

“Fantastic, beautiful, amazing apartment”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We only had a couple of nights at the Emperor apartment number 39, it was just amazing, beautiful views overlooking the river and York, really comfortable and relaxing break, Sheena made us very welcome, she bought Melvyn a chocolate cake for his birthday and the fridge was filled with goodies - wine, nibbles and the essentials,. The apartment was very beautifully decorated and my favourite white cotton bed linen, we sat on the balcony with a glass of wine and watched the world - and the geese - go by a little bit of heaven not too far from home. I was very reluctant to leave on Monday after such a lovely stay, however we will certainly be back again and again. Once more Sheena many thanks for helping to make Melvyn's birthday extra special

“Beautiful apartment with amazing views!”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This apartment was everything it advertised and more. The owner takes great pains to insure it is comfortable and clean, with the addition of meeting every need. There were special treats for consumption, as well as an assortment of teas and coffee. The old world views are spectacular as well as the modern comforts close at hand. There is no reason for a car when you can walk a short distance to York's city center. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in York

“1st Class Apartment”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in this beautiful apartment Monday to Friday it is one of the best apartments I have stayed in. The view was fantastic over looking the river, watching the various boats, canoes, ducks, geese & swans go by. The added bonus was the balcony which got the sun most of the morning & was lovely to sit & have breakfast or a nice drink on an evening. I travelled with my elderly parents who were fine getting to & from the apartment as there is a lift but also they could manage the stairs as they were not steep. There was everything you could think of in the apartment & it was spotlessly clean. Thank you so much Sheena for all the little touches which made our stay even more enjoyable, we will definitely be returning.

“Superb!”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I spent a week in this lovely apartment. Everything was clean and very comfortable. Sheena had thought of everything and had provided many extra touches. It was like home from home.....except it had a much nicer view ! The apartment is only a short walk into the centre of vibrant York or if you want to relax on the balcony, there are so many river activities to watch! If asked to describe Emperor's Apartment Riverside in one word......SUPERB!
