Excellent accommodation for 4 people with everything that is needed for a relaxing stay. Our host seemed very pleased to welcome us with our 2 Canadian friends.She even planned perfect weather. Convenient Sainsbury's next door and plenty of Pubs nearby for food and entertainment.

Brilliant apartment, great location

This apartment was perfect for our family stay in York. Pauline was the perfect host. The apartment was luxurions and very convenient to all the attractions but far enough to be lovely and quiet. We look forward to returning- maybe without the children !!!

Owner's Response: So good to hear from you, thank you. It was lovely to welcome you and your family and to hear that you really enjoyed the comfort, convenience and location of the apartment. So close to everything happening in the city yet quietly set back from the road to offer peace and relaxation between outings. We would be most pleased to welcome you back, York has so much diversity all through the year that there is always something to be enjoyed and experienced.

Great apartment in a great position

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment with 2 good size bedrooms and bathrooms. It was spotlessly clean and the layout is well thought out. Pauline met us when we arrived, directed us to our allocated parking space and showed us around the apartment which has everything you need.

The building is stunning and the location is fabulous as you are within a 5 mins walk of the city centre. There is a Sainsbury's next door (and you hear no noise whatsoever from it). If you are thinking of booking don't hesitate and we will be back again

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

This property was immaculate in every detail, centrally located and within easy walking distance to restaurants and amenities. Towels and bed linen were of excellent quality, beds were super comfortable and all areas were spotlessly clean- a perfect 'pied de terre'.( with some little treats for us to enjoy!) We will certainly recommend to our friends. Thank you Pauline.

Absolutely stunning apartment with a very modern interior. Pauline was very helpful recommending some nice little restaurants and nice walks. Literally 2 minutes walk and you are in the city walls. I definitely would recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive comments which will be most helpful to future enquirers and indicates that the refurbishment this Spring has most certainly enhanced the facilities for guests - which was our intention - and it is good to hear that you enjoyed it all so much. The location takes some beating - 5 minutes to York Minster, 3 minutes to the historic Roman walls and 2 minutes to a supermarket ... and being set back from the road, with secure parking, our apartment offers peace and relaxation.

Wonderful accommodation and woderful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were met at the apartment by the owner, Pauline, who was absolutely delightful, down to earth and really helpful. She pointed out a number of local attractions, which were all within walking distance of the apartment. There was a basket of goodies left for us, totally unexpected! The apartment was first class; extremely clean and very comfortable. Beds and bedding were top quality! The location was fantastic, two minutes from the York Minster. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a first class city break. Absolutely amazing!
