I've stayed at Millers Cottage with my sister twice now. It's in an ideal location and is very cosy and comfortable. Dylan is a good, caring host too. We hope to be able to stay there again and again ..........
On the plus side. Millers Cottage was clean, the beds are comfortable, the shower is hot and strong and a pleasure to use, and the kitchen is equipped with all the necessities for a short stay. Also, its central location means that all the York attractions, as well as some great cafes and pubs, are within a short walk. However, furnishings and amenities are of fairly basic quality, and the black plastic kettle needs to be replaced, as it has a calcification deposit around the pouring lip that is a bit off putting. The bathroom and kitchen are very small, so a longer stay with more than a couple would be testing. The biggest downside was that we did not find the location to be as quiet as advertised. The yard location does provide some protection from the bustle of Gillygate, but there is a hospital nearby so ambulance sirens continue into the early hours. The yard accommodates several alternative businesses alongside Millers Cottage, and between this, and the fact that pedestrians tend to use the yard as a shortcut between streets, there is some lack of privacy and activity in the yard late at night. If central location is a priority for you (and you are a good sleeper!), this apartment could be a good option for you. But if better quality furnishings, comfort and quiet are more important to you, then maybe this would not be the best choice.
Dylan was a great host. Excellent location close to the Minster. Very comfortable beds & nice little kitchen. Look forward to coming again.
Couldn't get more central than this - easy walking distance from all of York's attractions, comfortable accommodation in a location full of character. Loved it. Felt at home immediately with the apartment and all the facilities. Dylan was very welcoming and gave us lots of information and goodies - very generous. The only issue is parking - there's a lot of competition for parking space in this active and desirable location and not a lot of control although Dylan does his best. Nonetheless, the best place to stay when coming to York.
