“A1 IN ALL COUNTS”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Arrived by Maggie who was so friendly , helpful and informative, the welcome wine was a bonus!
The apartment is in an excellent location we never used the car at all , the standard of the apartment was exceptional and we could not believe we did not need the heating on at all for October.
We have stayed before and already looking forward to a further visit next year.
Kepp up the good work Maggie!

“Perfect location, lovely owners.”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The apartment was perfectly located on the south side of the river being just a 5 minute walk from the city center but away from the louder bars. The apartment was perfect for us and met all our needs. The owners were also lovely, very accommodating and thoughtful. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment to friends or family.

“Very central, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is in a great location to explore York and the secure parking was a bonus (would have been better if we had a small car as very tight). The living space was great - very comfortable. The apartment is very warm and the road very noisy but the owner has provided a very effective fan to cool thing down at night when you need the windows shut. The bed is a double and for us much smaller than we are used to so we did not sleep well. The owner provided milk, bread etc and wine and snacks which were a nice touch. Overall a very enjoyable stay

Thanks very much for your review and kind comments in our guest book.

I'm so sorry that you found it difficult to sleep. The bed is a standard double (4'6") with a brand new luxury mattress (Sept 14). Hopefully you found it comfortable, although rather smaller than the King-size that you're used to. Your comfort is our top priority and we will certainly consider this for future improvement.

We agree the location is ideal for enjoying the many attractions of this beautiful city. The traffic is one downside of being so central and unfortunately the noise can be intrusive at times. We find this is usually only a problem if the windows are open, as the area is usually quiet at night.

Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week in York. I hope you will consider returning in the future and it will be a pleasure to welcome you again.

Kind regards, Maggie

“Riverside luxury in York city centre apartment”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and I stayed at this lovely apartment for the weekend as we were invited to a wedding in York. The location was perfect, it is right in the centre of York and all parts of the city are only a few minutes walk away.

It was very helpful to be met by the owner and shown how everything works; car park gates, lifts, TV, heating etc. This was much better than having to read instructions. The amenities were excellent too, we had everything we needed and more. I always like to have the same comfort that I have at home when I go away but this was even better. Two nights of extreme comfort. If I had to fault anything it would be the fan in the bathroom, which is a little noisy, but so is ours at home and I think most seem to be.

What a brilliant weekend. This will definitely be our first choice of accommodation when we visit York again.

Just got back from a 2 night stay here. Maggie (the owner) was fantastic throughout the whole process & made us feel valued. She met us there & was very helpful and friendly. We appreciated the extra touches - asking us which bread & milk we preferred prior to our visit & the complimentary wine & chocolates.
The apartment itself is spotless & has everything you could possibly need. It's in an ideal location - we walked everywhere & appreciated the free secure parking.
We will definitely book again when we return to York.
Brilliant break.
