“Beautiful oasis of calm in centre of York”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed for five days as a family of four (with teenage children.) The flat is in a surprisingly calm setting right in the centre of York. It is a very special place and the owners have taken every care to think of every detail. It was amazing to be able to pop out to the hustle and bustle of local shops and restaurants on your doorstep, then retreat to this wonderful oasis. The owner was very kind and helpful to us and we wouldn't hesitate to return!

“Perfect oasis in the center of York”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment is in the perfect location - right in the heart of medieval York in Stonegate. And yet, even with the windows open on a Friday/Saturday night, it was wonderfully quiet and relaxing, with views across to the Minster in the near distance. The name "Retreat" is well chosen! The decor is neutral and contemporary - very stylish and chic. And everything about it was welcoming and high quality - comfortable bed, powerful shower, modern kitchen, "smart" TV, free wi-fi and an i-Pod compatible music system. We were there for just the two nights, but will definitely be returning!

Hartelijk dank voor deze goede recensie , ik ben blij dat je genoten hebt van uw verblijf!
De bedden zijn beschreven in onze advertentie en we hebben een kingsize bed ( 150 ) en een standaard tweepersoonskamer ( 140 ) . Parkeeromstandigheden worden ook beschreven in onze advertentie . Het appartement is gelegen binnen de oude straten van York binnen de stadsmuren en de eigenschappen hier niet over parkeerplaatsen. Als parkeerplaats naast het pand is van essentieel belang , helaas moet je ergens verder weg van het centrum van de stad te boeken.
