First Class

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home from an ideal week in York. Could not fault the apartment, so comfortable, clean, well equipped.

My husbands health is not so good, he needs a mobility scooter to get about, this apartment is perfect for his requirements, so near to the city, parking for the car, and comfort for us both to come back to after a day out.

Angela has thought of everything for her guests to enjoy their stay, and she has done it so well.

Stylish and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment in a terrific location close to the Minster and several excellent pubs, restaurants and shops.

It is beautifully decorated and furnished with lots of individuality and style, including some very tasteful paintings. Kitchen is extremely well equipped and as one reviewer has already said a real "home from home". The beds and bedding are worthy of a five star hotel. Everything is spotlessly clean. having stayed in several hotels i. The city over many years, this surpasses all of them. Truly a five * establishment.

From the Owner

A very central location, close to all of York’s amenities with on-site car parking (very precious in York). Owned the apartment above and when this ground-floor apartment came on the market bought that too. Extra special because of the private patio. All apartments have free wi-fi internet, i-pod docks, CD players/radios, digital flat-screen TVs in sitting room and main bedrooms.

York has won awards for being a European 'cycle-friendly' city. There is secure cycle storage and cycle hire, with bikes being delivered and picked-up can be arranged.

From the Owner

As already mentioned, a central location with car-parking. An area for sitting in - plants chosen for their screening as well as their fragrance. Beautifully lit at night and festive lights at Christmas. Two double bedrooms, one with singles which can be joined together to make a super-king making the apartment very adaptable for families or couples. Sainsbury's supermarket across the road, very convenient for self-catering. Location superb for city centre, everything accessible on foot but on a very convenient side of York for visiting nearby attractions. Access to main A64 without having to drive through city centre. York was voted Cycle-Friendly city of the year - we have an arrangement with a local cycle firm for delivering hire-bikes. Secure cycle-storage on site.
