Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great stay in luxury accommodation
Lovely spacious apartment and very central for a short walk into town. Thoughtful touches left for us with a chilled bottle of prosecco and chocolates in the fridge which was a nice surprise and very much appreciated. Friendly and helpful hosts with good communication - would heartily recommend.

Fantastic apartment, peaceful and luxurious in a great location
This is a really lovely apartment. We received good communications from the owners/managers and they were on hand to answer calls/ questions if needed. It is not cheap for an overnight stay, but it is comparatively much better than the 4 star hotels in the area and you get so much more for your money; complete apartment with full kitchen etc, secure parking, soundproofed rooms, luxury décor and fittings. Much better than a hotel in my opinion. The soundproofing really did work too. The location is perfect, a really quick walk into the nicest parts of the city with great shops, bars and restaurants. The area feels safe and the car parking is super secure. The apartment is really well equipped, with beautiful furnishings. The bed is really comfy and we got a great night's sleep. Wi-Fi is strong in all rooms and the TV is smart, with the expected apps, including Netflix. There is nothing I would say needs improving and I would definitely stay again - thank you to the lovely Hosts!

Perfect location, perfect condition and perfect service
We stayed for one night in December. Meticulously clean, plenty of items stocked in the fridge and cupboards for all the cooking we needed. The suite was decorated with Christmas decorations which made the experience even better. Fantastic place to stay

Present for Parents
I booked this apartment for my parents as an anniversary gift. Jo and Phil were a great help along the way. My parents had a lovely time, couldn’t pick a fault with their stay, apartment was clean and tidy, everything they needed. Very close to the city centre and very Christmassy!

Great Apartment, Great Location, all you need for great break in York.
Back again after my stay last year glad to see the apartment is still maintaining the high standards. Great location, a few minutes' walk along the river to the centre of York to all the shops and restaurants. We arrive and park up in the secure car park and then walk everywhere. As an added bonus we saw the new king at the Cathedral.

Luxurious Apartment in the Heart of the City
Spend a lovely couple of nights in York recently and was impressed with not only the location of this apartment but also the convenience of being able to park, which seems quite rare. Most of the sights of York easily within 10 minute walk. The team were very welcoming and talked me patiently through the check-in process. Highly recommended!
