“Fantastic accommodation - far better than a hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a very relaxing weekend in York, staying at apartment 1, Bootham. Having previously stayed in a hotel on our last visit ( and being disappointed with it ) we were delighted with our choice of apartment. The standard of decor was very high and comfort and cleanliness equaled any 5-star hotel we've stayed in. The location is excellent and we were able to leave the car in the car park for the whole weekend and walk to all the attractions of York. Sarah, the owner, met us on our arrival and explained everything to us about the apartment, parking etc. and she had even left us fresh scones from Betty's!

“Perfect Location!! Defiantly recommend!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Me and my partner had a weekend stay in Apartment 1, Bootham Road.

The recent reviews of this apartment are very accurate and i can second the quality of this property and service given by Sarah.

The apartment photos and descriptions are accurate but you have to see for yourselves to truly apreciate this fantasic place.

The whole apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard attention to detail had obviously been paid to the cleanliness and layout of the property.

LOCATION

The location was second to none as we could walk to all the places we wanted to visit. The apartment is located on the first floor above a pub and indian restaurant on a busy main road. Dont let this put you off however as the double glazed windows offer excellent sound insulation. There is a small sainsburys local situated 30 metres from the front door and you can literally throw a stone from the window of the apartment across to the city walls.

BEDROOM

The bedroom is to the rear of the property which looks out onto a quiet car park and the BBC York building. I personally found the bed reasonably comfortable however my girlfriend struggled to sleep well on it. Also the bedroom window does not open for security reasons (which is completely understandable) thus giving no ventilation or cool air to the room. There is a small fan provided which does make a great difference. Also in the bedroom is a wardrobe and set of draws which provides plently of storage to allow guests to unpack and feel at home.

BATHROOM

The bathroom has amazing exposed wooden beams on the wall. 2 waffle dressing gowns and high quality cotton towels are provided. There is a good electric shower with bath. The only fault being the bath seemed deeper than it actually is. Another toilet roll would have been good.

KITCHEN AREA

The kitchen was again spotlessly clean and featured high quality appliances including a washing machine. I loved the fact that the chefs knives were high quality and kept sharp!

LIVING AREA

There is a large plasma TV which has free view along with a DVD player and CD player. The two sofas compliment the room however look softer and more comfortable than they actually are. The lighting and decor give the property a modern homely feel.

GOOD POINTS

- Location!!!!
- High quality fixtures and fittings.
- Cleanliness.
- Ease of booking and customer
service from Sarah 10/10.
- Decor of the apartment.

BAD POINTS

- We couldnt stay for longer!!


A well earned 4 stars out of 5! Brilliant stay thankyou!!! Definatly recommend to anyone looking to stay in York!

N.B
The only reason we didnt give our stay 5 stars was that we only had 1 toilet roll and had to buy more. Also we have stayed in other propertys which provided a welcome pack of a bottle of wine, chocolates, milk, eggs, orange juice, butter, sparkling water, biscuits, bread and a selection of cereals which ment we didnt have to go straight to the shops.

“Fabulous flat for a York getaway!”

person found this review helpful

This is a great apartment. It is beautiful, well appointed and in the perfect place to explore York. Steps away from the Bootham Bar, across the street from tourist bus and it comes with a parking place! We traveled during a heat wave and Sarah graciously returned during the week to bring us another fan to try to keep cool. The pictures are accurate....high ceilings, beautiful lighting. Very comfortable furnishings.

We have just returned from a great week in York. It is the first time we have visited the city and can see now why it is so popular. The apartment was brilliantly located for all the sites. The apartment had everything we needed and although in the centre of York very quiet. Sarah was very welcoming and keen to ensure that our stay was hassle free. The welcome goodies were a good start! Thank you

A beautifully presented apartment, with everything York has to offer right on its doorstep.

We received a very warm welcome from Sarah, and her attention to detail in furnishing the apartment makes it a really lovely place to stay - even the fold out bed for the third guest was very comfortable! All the attractions and restaurants/bars are five minutes away making it the perfect place to stay!

Thank you Sarah.

“This accommodation is the 'bees knees'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a very well thought- out apartment, extremely comfortable and being situated so close to everything you would care to visit in York, we were able to pop back to the apartment within 5 - 10 mins., which we did regularly. Thanks to Sarah and this lovely city we had a wonderful holiday.

“Brilliant flat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Flat was very attractive, comfortable and spacious. Brilliantly central - good pubs, good restaurants and sights minutes away. Flat was beautiffuly light and airy, drenched in sunlight through the large windows. It was exactly as it looked on the web. The living room overlooks a busy road, but the double glazing meant it was very quiet. Bedroom is at the back and is also very quiet. Unreservedly recommended.
