“Great accommodation, great location, quiet but close to city centre.”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were greeted by the housekeeper who showed us around and was very welcoming and friendly. The flat is in a very quiet location with parking for 1 car. It is close to the National Railway Museum but not close enough to hear any noise from trains. It is situated in a close so no cars driving past either. It takes about 10 minutes to walk into town and we were charged just over £5 for a cab home one evening. The beds were comfortable, there was a bathroom with a decent shower over the bath and an ensuite with a shower. The kitchen was well equipped and we were given a pint of fresh milk and a loaf of bread when we arrived, plus there were essentials such as tea and coffee, cooking oil etc which was useful. The sitting room was comfortable with a sofa and two comfy chairs and a tv. I would definitely return and would recommend the flat to friends.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Mallard flat contained everything needed for an enjoyable, no stress holiday. It is modern and warm and a lovely relaxing place to stay.The walk into the city was approximately 20/25 minutes at normal pace although there is a bus stop outside the National Railway Museum a few minutes away from flat. As well as seeing the wonderful sites of York, we also traveled to the coast and visited Whitby and Bridlington, we especially liked Whitby. Could have done with a pub or restaurant a little closer as didn't always want to make a trip into city after a busy day. We would definitely recommend the Mallard flat and the owner Richard for the help and ease in booking. Also Chris for meeting us with keys at a time to suit us.

“SUPER APARTMENT WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF CITY CENTRE”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My second week in this excellent flat.
It is ideally situated in a quiet complex within a 20 minute walk of city centre and Minster. Just opposite Railway Museum [free entry] that has a good selection eateries.
The flat is clean and well maintained with thoughtful provision of all the necessaries including a welcome pack of milk, butter and bread and explanation of everything from Chris, the housekeeper, who does an excellent job. I was with my son, so it was especially nice to have two bathrooms, both of which were well kitted out with towels etc and very clean
Plenty of info provided re use of equipment and York guides.
Particularly recommend a visit to Castle Museum, Minster and new Art gallery - all worth seeing.
Full marks to Richard for providing such a good holiday rental.

“Fantastic Base”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a beautiful flat, ideal for our family of four.

The flat is situated 5 minutes walk away from the city centre and is practically next door to the National Railway museum. It is beautifully kept and the caretaker was so flexible that all our needs were met.

If you choose not to walk to the city centre there is a very regular bus service just round the corner, though it is so close you won't need to and there is also a regular transport service from the Railway Museum to the centre too.

We are so pleased with the flat that we are considering booking again next year.

“Perfect Location, perfect accommodation.”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at this flat.
It is beautifully decorated and in a perfect location for a stay in York.
We arrived by train so an easy straightforward 10min walk to the Mallard flat was very welcome. It is in easy access of a walk into the town centre.
Both Richard(by email) and Chris(who met us and dealt with the keys) were a great help and very friendly.
York is a beautiful place, with so much to see and do.
We'll definitely be back.
