“Home away from Home”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Everything is provided in this lovely apartment, including a spectacular view! So relaxing to watch boats of all types going up and down the river. Sean was so helpful. The apartment was spotless and the beds very comfortable. The location is ideal for getting around York and a plus is the car space in the garage below.

“Brilliant Break in York”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A very pleasant stay at this delightful flat. Well furnished, spotlessly clean apartment with many thoughtful touches such as multi charger for phones, Ipad etc, wi fi, docking stations for Ipod as well as soap, dishwasher tablets and spare loo rolls. However better quality cutlery would have been appreciated. The whole Emperor's Wharf complex is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The only down side is the entrance to the garage which is very tight. Fortunately everyone parks carefully and there is no major problem once in the garage.
Second bedroom (twin) is not really large enough for two adults but ideal for two children.
Flat is in an excellent location being only a 5 - 10 minute walk into the centre of York.
There are lovely views over the river and city from the balcony but balcony is a little cramped for 4 adults to sit out.
The geese on the river are surprisingly noisy and it takes a day or two to get used to the noise.

Liked best: Flat well furnished and spotlessly clean as is the whole Emperor's Wharf complex. Sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the river traffic. Proximity to city centre and shops (Tesco Express only 5 minutes away).
Liked least: No instructions for the washer/dryer. No lid on the kitchen waste bin which made the kitchen rather smelly unless bin emptied after cooking a meal. Tight turn into the garage.

“Stunning Location & Views”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

This place was all we could ask for. Location, views and amenities. Instructions from Chris very accurate and Sean was extremely prompt and helpful, carrying our bags up the stairs, as the lift wasn't working. Everything in the apartment was great, loved the views with the boats going up and down. The pictures do not lie, everything is as displayed. If we were ever back in York again, I would stay here. Location, location, location.

Reviewed January 22, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This place is great! I was greeted by Sean and he was extremely helpful and let us in the apartment and gave us a quick tour, and also told us about the surrounding area.
Beacuse of the central location it's very easy to get around the city, the view was amazing and everything was very clean and fresh. it was also easy to find the apartment on arrival.

“Excellent location for visiting York.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed over Christmas to New Years to visit our daughter who goes to University here. It was a great location to check out all the sights of York. The apartment is very well appointed, with everything a family would need to prepare meals. We shopped at the local marks and spencer and the even closer Tesco. York has so many wonderful restaurants - you may not want to cook. We had an experience with flooding - but this is certainly not the fault of the owners. The one negative would be the laundry - we didn't understand how it worked and the book in the apartment isn't the correct one for the washer/dryer combo... Had a few fits and starts but we finally figured it out.

“Everything you could want and a great location”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This apartment was the perfect base for 4 days in York with 2 children (7 & 11). It is spacious, has modern appliances (the knob on the washing machines was the only fault in the whole apartment), great WiFi and TV options, 2 bathrooms, lovely kitchen, including coffee machine, comfy beds and a superb view of the river, Cliffords Tower and the peaks of the Minster. Add to that that the historical parts of York and all the restaurants and shops are 5-10 minutes walk (and a supermarket just 5 minutes) it is hard to fault this apartment.
