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.

Beautifully completed apartment that has a great location. It was clean, quiet and very comfortable, bed was huge! It is close to an NCP car park that you are given a discount of 33% by staying at the apart hotel. Would’ve been even better if the car park was included in the price of the accomodation.

An amazing place to stay!!! I have stayed in The Lawrance York and Harrogate three times now and every single time has been an amazing experience. The apartments are stylish, comfy, extremely clean, perfect location and have everything you could ever need for a weekend away. Would 100% recommend staying here and have told friends and family to visit too :)

Honestly, the nicest place we have ever stayed and at a bargain price, too. You’d 100% be able to charge double for these and you’re undercharging I think! We walked in and expected a living area/bed at most with most Aparthotels but we were greeted by a rustic living room, a separate kitchen, and then stairs leading to a large bedroom & bathroom. Full central heating throughout, secure and most importantly, CLEAN. I wish we’d booked for longer and can’t wait to revisit when we go back to York. It SURPASSED ALL EXPECTATIONS. Anyone who’s left a bad review has either A. Not raised an issue with reception and then slated them on here without seeking help or B. are just wrong! Both staff members we met were polite, kind and welcoming. We can’t wait to return in the coming months! Thank you x

We loved this apartment. We wanted a base we could have a relaxing breakfast and tea in and then spend the day exploring. Our first impressions were fabulous. The little courtyard entry was very cute and whilst we didn’t use it we really appreciated the fact you can use the loading area to unpack your car. It all felt very secure without being over the top and considering it’s very central location it felt very quiet and relaxed. We stayed in Ap 11 which was a one bed over two floors. Very modern and very clean. It had everything you could need. We loved the heated bathroom floor and the plunge bath, rainfall shower. The air con worked the whole time and was very cosy to come home to a warm apartment. We loved that the apartments were self check in. But we were aware of who to contact if we did need anything. Though we had everything we needed. We will definitely look to stay here if in York again. Well worth the rate we paid for the amenities. Location and a relaxing city break :)

We stayed this weekend just gone in apartment 26 on Tanner Row (deluxe one bedroom) for my wife’s 30th and it was absolutely fantastic. From the minute you walk in you can tell the apartments are incredibly looked after and have everything you need. We were in awe and even took pictures to send to our friends and parents! Parking is so much closer than I originally thought and the discount voucher definitely helped. Location is perfect and just a short walk from absolutely everything. Check in was really easy and we were in our room in no time. The sensor lights were a fantastic touch and meant you weren’t fumbling about for light switches during the night when going to the toilet. The bed was so big and so comfy we slept like absolute logs. The comments complaining about the “50p sized soap” is a bar of hand soap that is more than enough for the weekend. There is shampoo and body wash in the shower for you to use! There is even extra tea/coffee/milk in boxes down in the lobby for you to help yourself. The apartment really did have absolutely everything we needed and we couldn’t have been happier! We’re already looking at coming back next year and bringing my mother for her 50th! The only extra suggestion I could make is maybe a blanket for when you’re chilling in the living room but it wasn’t a biggie because we spent the majority of time out exploring. I also don’t know if it’s been mentioned before but the shower panel seal isn’t the best and meant the water ran out really easily but it was okay because we just put another towel down! We will definitely be back and we cannot wait!

Excellent. Really spacious, clean and well maintained. Close to town centre. Went for my Birthday and had a lovely time. The apartment was perfect. So much better than a hotel room. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great. Stayed in Room 16 and didn't have any of the issue some previous guests have mentioned. Was quiet couldn't hear anyone from other apartments. NCP carpark is virtually next door. Isn't the cheapest place to park but it's convenient and with the discount wasn't actually too bad. Wouldnt hesitate to stay there again.

Paid £120 and we were impressed with what we got for the money in that our one bedroom flat was over two floors so plenty of space. We do have some constructive consideration though would stress we would definitely revisit if we were back in York. When we arrived we had issues with the initial key card safe arrangement which really needed more light to see what you were doing. Another guest and ourselves had to resort to iphone torches to try and read the combination numbers. The other guest also seemed to be blind as a bat as I ended up putting her numbers in for her. The welcome package was abit underwhelming with teas, coffees and a biscuit each. I understood more could be obtained from Receiption but if you are going to label yourselves as Luxury Apartments there should be more readily available than a single custard cream per guest without having to go find more supplies. Underfloor heating in the bathroom was definitely a luxury though no hooks meant any clothes had to be draped over the small towel rail or on the floor. Finally, Mrs B thought the bedroom mirror could have been larger and wall mounted. All in all would definitely recommend to anyone wanting good self catering accommodation in central York.

My partner and I came here for my birthday after staying here last year and having a lovely experience. Unfortunately, this time our experience wasn’t good despite staying in the exact same room. We arrived back at the aparthotel after heavy rainfall, we attempted to use the drier for our clothes, but it was broken. I attempted to run a bath, but the plug was broken. I attempted to use the smart TV to put on a movie, but the smart TV only worked on satellite due to the hotel using a dodgy VPN with their wifi. To finish it off, the boiler/airflow system was kettling and rumbling all night, which meant we had to turn it off at the mains just so the noise didn’t further disturb our sleep. We tried to call reception multiple times, with no answer. We even went down to the main desk, but nobody was there. The aparthotels have been very poorly maintained, in just a year, 4 things have become faulty and/or broken. These things should be checked regularly so guests are able to enjoy their stay. The “luxury” aspect of this place is based on all the extra things you wouldn’t get at a standard hotel, yet every “luxury” was broken. Once our email complaint was finally answered, they thanked us for doing their job and gave us a 15% discount for future stays, which is frankly insulting. It shouldn’t be the guests job to report YOUR shortcomings whilst our stay is heavily impacted in a negative way. We were advertised luxury, and got a rundown joke. No refund, no compensation, not even a decent discount, we were ripped off.

Dear fayem612, We are more than surprised that you feel the necessity to continue to defame our Company on TripAdvisor. We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us at The Lawrance York. We are surprised as most of our reviews are very good, we do our very best and go above and beyond for our guests and provide anything they need if it does not compromise within safety for them. As mentioned in our previous conversations the washer-dryer in question was reported to our maintenance team and it was fully working when checked after your departure. As previously explained and apologised, sadly the bath plug was not fully functional and was replaced immediately and with regards to the air vent in the utility cupboard, we are not able to hear any excess noise and haven’t received any further noise as such complaints from previous guests. Our maintenance team has also checked this, and no issues have been found. We did receive your direct email to our reception email which was responded to straight away where apologies were sent and a gesture of good will offered. We wish you well in your future stays in York where you will be much happier. Regards The Lawrance Team

We had a very comfortable stay and loved the freedom of a serviced apartment. The decor in our apartment was beautiful. It was very modern and clean. The apartment was warm as it was bitterly cold outside, but it also had aircon. The kitchen was well resourced and the lounge area good with great choice of TV channels. The bed was comfortable but it had a wooden frame which stuck out from the mattress and I got a corker of a bruise on the back of my leg. Good storage but needed more hangers. The bathroom was visually stunning but was style over substance. There were no surfaces to put anything down. There was a cupboard but the door opened over the top of the sink which was rather strange. Water pressure in shower not the best. There was unlimited tea coffee to help yourself in the entrance. Entry security would have been superb if other guests remembered to pull the front door closed! Position was excellent. 5 minutes walk from train station. Ideal location to walk to centre. Supermarket a few minutes walk away. Next time we stay in York we will definitely come back rather than choosing a hotel.
