“Superb house, with one big problem for 7 adults”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This is a beautiful house, well equipped, with parking for two cars and only minutes walk to the Minster area of York. There is a great '1950s' drinking style pub only seconds walk away, The Minster, who serve the most fantastic real ale.
My one and only issue is with the heating and hot water, or to put it another way, the lack of hot water and heating when you need it.
We stayed during a VERY cold spell and the heating and water is on a pre-set timer, which you need a degree in electrical engineering to understand and change, and when you think you've figured it out, well think again.
We were 7 adults who wished to shower (DON'T EVEN THINK OF TRYING TO USE THE BATH'S) in a morning and before going out to dinner in the evening, which when you rent a house for 7 adults you think is a reasonable thing to do. What we found is sufficient water in the tank for 2 or 3 showers then not enough to wash up after breakfast (we had to boil the kettle to do that).
We reported this to the Management company who suggested leaving 30 mins between showers (I work that out at 3.5 hours for the party to shower in a morning!!, a great use of your time when in York for just 3 nights). In such a modern property I can't understand why there is not a combi boiler so hot water on demand. (I was told it was a tank because it also used solar heating, which is a nice idea, but not in a property let to 7 adults)
Apart from this, I must say that this is a great property and would recommend to a family of 4.(I did email the management company asking for their comments but have not to date received a reply)

“Fantastic York rental”
Reviewed 4 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Having stayed many times in York in everything from high end apartments to quality hotels & B&B's we finally discovered 4 Galmanhoe mews which is without a doubt the very best. Superb location, luxurious, spacious accommodation & excellent service. The house is immaculate - extremely well equipped & with the added bonus of parking (such a rarity in York). Only minutes on foot from the Minster & the lovely Museaum gardens the location doesn't get much better than this & the handy convenience store nearby means that you really don't need a car. Our family was extremely comfortable here. Loved the selection of games, books & DVD's & the welcome basket of goodies. Great toiletries, lots of fluffy towells & bathrobes - all the plusses of a great hotel but with the freedom & space of your own house. Definitely the very best self-catering property we have found in York.

“Fantastic property great location”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Can not rate this property highly enough. It is modern,clean had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. I would say this is a five star property. It was easy to book and Bev was very helpful. All seven adults and one baby were delighted with our time there to attend a family wedding. I would recommend the property to anyone thinking of spending time in York.
