“Good but not amazing and compact.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at number 1 for three nights and it was good, as all the all reviews state. We initially had problems with the tv but the woman she rang sorted out all the issues.

The waffles and sparkling wine was definitely a nice touch when we arrived, it made my girlfriend really happy, oh and there was an iron there

All I can say, which was a bug bear of mine is that you couldn't watch the tv when the bedroom door was open, I know the apartment is compact but still it takes my missus ages to get ready

The reason why I marked down for value is because on the booking rooms website it showed different rooms and a different apartment that I thought I booked. As being someone that's busy the majority of the time especially recently I didn't have time to investigate it fully.

I've stayed in two different Reubens Court apartments. In both cases, communication with the owners was great and the one-bedroom apartments were clean and nicely designed. The building is located at an easy 10-minute walk from the train station, with the historic centre of the city just a short walk away.

On both trips, we were kindly provided with a bottle of sparkling wine and crumpets/flapjacks.

On my first stay in November 2011, we stayed in an apartment on the top floor, which had a bath in the WC, a dishwasher in the kitchen, and a lot of space. On my second stay in September 2012, we stayed in a ground-floor apartment which was smaller, especially in terms of bathroom space, and didn't have a dishwasher, so there is a bit of variance among even the 1-bedroom apartments. But both travel experiences were lovely.

We stayed overnight at 2 Reubans Court and highly recommend it. The open plan apartment was beautiful. Everything was hygienic and luxurious. It was a short walk to town and the fact we got a parking permit with our stay was a bonus.

My wife, teenage son and I stopped at these Apartments for two nights in September as our base for a few days in York.

We stopped in Number 4 which was on the top floor and has one bedroom and a bed/settee in the lounge. It was plenty large enough for our needs.

The location is perfect in that it is only a few minutes stroll and you are into the bustling center of York but also it's in a quite residential area so a peaceful nights sleep was a given.

The apartment was clean and well presented with all you need in the kitchen together with a full sky package and wi-fi and a very welcome bottle of fizz awaiting us on arrival. The on street parking via a permit was great too!

All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would have no hesitation in staying here again on our next visit to York.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in Oct 12. Regardless of the other reviews here, these are NOT luxury apartments. They are well enough appointed although perhaps looking a little worse for wear. The apartment came complete with tea, coffee, milk, etc. Attention needs to be paid to the decor; some of the paintwork and the ceiling in the shower room could do with some TLC. That said, the ticketed parking virtually outside the door, the complete SKY package and the proximity to the City (10 min stroll) and loads of pubs and restaurants is second to none. We did not use our car for the entire trip. No problem with noise, we slept very well and the entrance and exiting information was well done

Reubens court consists of four apartments tucked away down a back alley at the end of some terraces. We stayed at number 1 which sleeps two. It is easy to park and a parking permit is provided however Prospect Terrace is extremely narrow, so if you can, park at the top of the street or you may find that when cars are parked on each side you will be unable to get out!
The apartment was ready early and was well presented. The small dining table and stools we found to be too high, my wife is only small and almost had to be lifted onto the stool, a triumph of design over practicality! As other reviews say, it has everything you need (apart from a hairdryer), a full sky package was a bonus and it's certainly big enough for a short break but we'd begin to feel a little claustrophobic if we were to stay for a week.

Stayed at these aprtments in June, excellent location, very well decorated & came with everythng that you would like at home. There was even a bottle of cava waiting for us which was a very nice touch.
The only thing that disappointed was the shower pressure, not the best for washing hair, but adequate. don;t let that stop you booking this accommodation though. The bathroom had underfloor heating. We had full sky package.
Walking to centre was very quick & the bonus was a wee pub about 200 yards from the apartment.

Will definitely look that staying here again when we visit York again.
