The Good, The Bad, and The Unclean
Stayed for 3 nights. First the Good. Location was ideal for walking into the city. Choice of supermarkets very close by. Secure gated car parking space was really nice to have.
Now the Bad and the Unclean. First impressions of the apartment were that it had been well used and in need of a little tlc. Also worth noting that the living and dining area decor has altered from what is currently shown on the photos, which was a little dissapointing and didn't help in giving the apartment a "luxury" feel.
There were bulbs out in some light fittings, dripping tap, cutlery was a bit of a mixture, not many glasses to choose from, beading loose on entrance hallway as you walk in through front door, clothes drier missing a screw (which we found in a drawer).
In general the carpet in the main bedroom required shampooing, a lampshade had a strange stain, cutlery drawer and cutlery were grubby, and there were hairs and marks on the bedlinen. Receipt from previous occupant was found in kitchen area.
All of the above was mentioned to the owner subsequent to our departure and all that was offered was a.... "if you had mentioned these issues whilst staying I would have come round and fixed them". My opinion is that these issues should be addressed between lets and not whilst paying guests are trying to enjoy a holiday.
Book and beware!
Good location 10 mins walk from York centre, Waitrose 100 yards away. All amenities in flat with secure parking. Beds v low which can be a little awkward. Recommended
The apartment is ideal for parking up and exploring York by foot. Great living space and nicely furnished.
We couldn't get the DVD player to work and it could probably do with a couple of extra cooking utensils e.g. A casserole dish.
Apart from that it is a fantastic holiday let and perfect for visiting York.
This apartment is within walking distance to the city centre, good coffee shops and supermarkets. Appartment was clean but just missing a few basic things such as a pair of tongs and teaspoons. The highchair could do with replacing as its very unstable and the tray on one side is broken. But otherwise it's a great base for our week in York.
