The apartment is well appointed and beautifully maintained. The location is so close to the city of York walking is the way to go.,You have some great eateries so close that you are almost spoilt for choice. Many of the city attractions are close by. Give it a go.

“Fab location, Fab flat”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were looking for accommodation with secure parking and Emperor's Wharf was just the ticket! The 'warehouse' flats are lovely - ours overlooked the river and had a little balcony with table and chairs. It was lovely sitting there listening to the York Minster bells and watching the rowing club powering their way down the water!

The flats are served by a lift as well as stairs, which is handy.

The flat itself was in good condition, two bedrooms (one ensuite), living area (with patio doors out to another small balcony), and bathroom and kitchen of course. The interior decor was beautiful and the beds were very comfortable (very important lol!).

Kitchen well-equipped, with spare bits and bobs in hall cupboard.

Really nice, I look forward to coming back :)

Liked best: The balcony and patio doors, overlooking the river. Also secure off-street parking!
Liked least: Maybe have some maps and leaflets about what's available in York in the flat?

“GREAT APARTMENT”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Unexpected change to our family weekend - but we found a gem in this apartment.
Welcomed by Sean who gave us a very good guide and instruction on the flat and all facilities.
Apartment is very clean and comfortable in a really good position on the river just a few steps from the heart of the city which is very walkable.
We can recommend the hotel at the rear of the property for their Friday night Steak - fab and good price!
Easily recommend this apartment !!

Just returned from a super weekend with friends. Lovely apartment overlooking the river, very well equipped, only a short walk to town and restaurants. Would recommend to friends and book again next time in York.

“Lovely apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Emperor's Wharf. The apartment is very comfortable and well-equipped, with a lovely view of the river and city. It's located within a short walking distance of the restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. A perfect place to stay when visiting York.
