“Beautiful Apartment But Poor Soundproofing”
Reviewed December 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The owner Tim was very helpful with regard to booking and in allowing us to gain access to the flat earlier. It's a beautiful flat with a lot of character and lovely furniture and a very comfortable double bed, which, as previous reviewers have said, affords a view of the stars through the skylight window.

On a less positive note, there was a mop bucket in a cupboard under the sink to catch drips from a leaking drain but I'm sure that this will be remedied. Also, on the first night of our stay we were disturbed from sleep until one in the morning by noise from the people next door talking and watching television. That, and constant thumping as people climbed stairs led us to believe that the flats are poorly soundproofed. Hence the reason why we have given the flat 4/5 as it disturbed us.

York itself is a beautiful city although it was subject to flooding when we were there. The people are very friendly and there was a fantastic atmosphere. The flat is a pleasant 15 minute walk to the city centre

“Little Gem”
Reviewed August 21, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

A lovely little gem of a place only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Clean, airy and light and the bed was so comfortable it made it hard to get up in the mornings. Not too much stooping needed because of the beams. The kitchen was well equipped though the bin lid kept falling off because it was broken (small irrelevant thing). The place could only be made better by access to a parking space; walking a few bags etc from the car park was a bit of a pain but other than that we had a fabulous stay. Would definitely come back, highly recommended.

“Fun, quirky apartment - Mind your head!”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Tim made the arrangements to get in to the apartment super easy. There is a lift up to the apartment but there are a few steps up to the lift on the bottom level, and a small flight of stairs down upon entering the apartment. Layout is super fun, everything was very clean and welcoming. Kitchen is huge and well-equipped with everything you would need. Bedroom is clean and comfortable and the bed is an American King sized bed. Yay! The skylights were super cool and I only bumped my head lightly a few times.
Apartment is a short walk into town and the stroll takes you right by a great little restaurant, Barbakan. There are a couple of express markets a short walk away to pick up light food.
Overall it was a super cool, clean, comfy apartment in a great location. We loved our two-day stay.

“Wonderful flat!”
Reviewed February 7, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Wonderful flat close to York city centre (10-15 minutes by feet), just near Walmgate Bar. It's cosy and well furnished, and you have everything you could need. It's well heated too.

The owner (Tim) is very kind and helpful!

We highly recommend to stay there!

“clean, comfortable and central!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed for a month in this well-equipped, very cozy and central York apartment. The owner was very helpful and welcoming and made my stay that much more pleasant. The apartment is a short walk from shops, pubs, restaurants, the city center and the university. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for either a short weekend stay in York or for a longer holiday visit. Thanks T!

“Peace and quiet”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I was just looking for some peace and quiet for one week, somewhere not far from a station and with all the facilities that I would need within walking distance. This property delivered everything I required. Communication with the owner was friendly and helpful.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Went for a weekend with my wife. We prefer to stay in apartments as it gives us a bit more flexibility. This is apartment is really well equipped the quality of furnishings and utensils is excellent. Easy to find and the town centre was only a short walk. Free on street parking just round the corner.
You just have to watch your head as the ceilings are very low in places!
