“Perfect place to stay in York, second time there.”

This is such a great apartment to stay in York I have been here once before a few years ago and would be stopping here again a couple of weeks ago.

One of the big changes I did notice is the kitchen has been completely redone since the last time I was here and it looks fantastic. All the amenities you need are right there and Sean showed me how to use the new oven and was really helpful getting me settled in.

Simply can not complain it was the best, it still is the best.

Worth every penny.

“44 Emperors Wharf”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Excellent accommodation and very clean with all items you need for self catering provided. Ideal location for walking to York centre and as a central point for discovering the surrounding area by car.
The only small negative was the underground car parking. The car park is difficult to access with a large car and it is not helped when cleaners park their cars on the ramp as it is then very difficult to manoeuvre through a narrow entrance at right angles to the ramp.There was then a situation that occurred whereby there was a "rogue" car parked in the allocated car space for the rented unit. This is not what you want to deal with after a 3 hour drive.However, Sean sorted out the problem for us.

Hi Brian I am sorry you had problems with the parking, this is the first time in 12 years that anyone has parked in our space without permission. We did find you an adjacent space right away so hopefully it did not inconvenience you too much.

“Perfect in every way.”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for several days towards the end of August and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The owners sent detailed instructions as to how to locate the property and on arrival we were met, directed to the secure, underground private parking space and given a tour of the flat. The flat on the second floor of a modern development (there is a lift), was very clean, with a well appointed kitchen and comfortable beds. The balcony overlooking the river was a real bonus. It is ideally situated in the centre of York, with two small supermarkets very close by and all the attractions of York within easy walking distance, I highly recommend this property and we will certainly return.

Stayed for two nights and loved the flat. Very clean and well fitted out. Views of river lovely and spent much of our time sat on the baloney watching the boats.
No need to use your car - all Yorks' attractions within walking distance
Would definitely stay again if we come back to York.

“Very Good Apartment and Location”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Booking was great and the owners kept in touch and sent very good directions. We were met at the property and shown where to park etc. The Apartment was clean and had everything you would require for self catering. We did have a problem with the oven but that was fixed straight away by Chris...very good service.

The location was excellent just a short walk and you are 'in town'. We had a car but only used that when we were visiting friends but it was great to have a parking space.

There are plenty of places round about to eat and a small Tesco across the bridge if you wish to cater for yourself. It was nice to be able to sit and watch all the 'goings on' on that part of the river. We enjoyed our stay and would return and would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends.
