“Fabulous place, wish we were there for a month!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I cannot fault this flat at all. Sarah is the perfect host, she has provided everything that anyone could need for a short or long stay. The location is 2nd to none; you are literally minutes walk from the Minster & other attractions. You may arrive & think you've made a mistake as you are almost directly above 2 pubs, an Indian restaurant & alongside a main road but DO NOT WORRY!!! Any traffic noise will be gone way before you retire to bed & I can truthfully say we never heard a peep from anything outside in the evenings. In fact we tried both pubs, one was much nicer than the other, and the Indian restaurant - which was excellent.
The flat itself is even nicer than the pictures with lovely high ceilings and ornate plasterwork. We stayed during the 1st weekend in February when the temperatures were freezing and there was an icy wind blasting outside. Despite this, the flat was plenty warm enough - we did have to put the fire on in the living room occasionally, but never needed to use the additional heating in the bedroom. The bed was extremely comfy and the duvet was a treat. I think some people would struggle with the height of the bed as it was pretty low but that's the only niggle with it; I slept better than I have in ages. There's free wi-fi - very handy, a TV in the living area & bedroom, DVD player, games, books etc.
I can't recommend it enough, we stayed for our 18th wedding anniversary & though we usually go to York to celebrate anniversaries this is the 1st time we've done self-catering there. It exceeded all our expectations & I really hope it won't be long before we can return. It's a spotless place, beautifully kept & obviously valued by its owners. Treat yourself & book this flat, though preferably not when I would like to go again. Thank you so much Sarah for our lovely break, it was a pleasure to meet you & to stay in your property.

“SIMPLY THE BEST”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

Huge apartment yet nice and comfortable to live in. It is so close to city centre . About 5 minutes walk to the Minster and Shambles areas. Everything in the flat is top quality and the bed is so comfortable .Sarah met us on arrival and was the perfect hostess . She seems to guenuinely care about the service she provides. We will be staying again if we can find a vacant slot. It is so nice in the apartment it takes a bit of effort to get moving again after a pitstop for refreshments and a rest up.
