“A fantastic fully equipped apartment in a great location with excellent views and loads of great little touches.”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The apartment was booked for 4 in late Feb to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday. The apartment is fantastic in every way, has much more in it than you would expect and has loads of great little touches. Sheena had arranged for a cake, a card and a bottle of prosecco for our friend which was very much appreciated. The apartment is so central, has fantastic views over the river and is 5 mins away from everything. We had a brilliant time, will definitely be back and would recommend the apartment to anyone. Thank you very much for everything Sheena.

“Fab Apartment in a great Location”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great apartment with all mod cons.,situated in a great location very central,everything within walking distance.
Handy for York railway station if you want to explore further afield ie. Harrogate, Leeds.
Great also if you just want to chill out on the balcony watching the many boats and the wildlife.
Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in the centre of York,
The little extras in this apartment make it all the more special

Nice welcome from owner, well appointed apartment in an excellent location in easy reach of center of York and within walking distance of rail station.
Great views of the river and although close to the center of York it was reasonably quiet.

“Best ever, location and views.”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Really liked this apartment. Stayed with older person, so the lift access was essential. The location was excellent, windows and baloney overlooking the river, was an added bonus as this allowed constant changing views, cruise boats and wild bird life, very entertaining. The apartment was contemporary furnished, really comfortable, well equipped and beautifully clean and warm. The owner, Sheena added lots of treats, and basics for arrival of her guests, excellent, really appreciated this gesture.
We would recommend the Emperors Riverside apartment and we would love to visit again.

“Five Star Apartment”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
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
