Well i will be honest and this wasn't my first choice from the list of places to stay in York for our 2 night mini break, but im so glad that i gave this apartment a second look. From start to finish the communication with Sarah was excellent, the apartment was absolutely gorgeous, a beautiful, contemporary apartment which made our stay in York fantastic. The standard of the apartment was simply way above anything else that i have encountered in York and i have stopped on over on business in excess of 20 times. The location was excellent and the added facility of local parking was the icing on the cake. Centrally located, with everything only ever 10 mins away made the foul weather on the first night insignificant.
I asked Sarah for any recommendations in terms of restaurants, pubs etc and we loved every experience although the Lion & Lamb was our favorite which is about 3 mins from the apartment.
Would i go again, yes without doubt, would i recommend... that's a tough one as i don't want it to become so busy that i couldn't get availability... its simply a hidden gem that you will love.

“Central, classy and comfortable apartment”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

A great place to explore York which is a lovely historic city. You are a couple minutes walk from pretty much all you would want to see. The apartment Itself is clean, modern, comfortable and on the first floor so easy to get to. Sarah left us a couple cheese scones which was great! Some pamphlets in the living room were useful although make sure to check they are still running the yours!

“Perfect Location!! Defiantly recommend!”

Me and my partner had a weekend stay in Apartment 1, Bootham Road.

The recent reviews of this apartment are very accurate and i can second the quality of this property and service given by Sarah.

The apartment photos and descriptions are accurate but you have to see for yourselves to truly apreciate this fantasic place.

The whole apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard attention to detail had obviously been paid to the cleanliness and layout of the property.

LOCATION

The location was second to none as we could walk to all the places we wanted to visit. The apartment is located on the first floor above a pub and indian restaurant on a busy main road. Dont let this put you off however as the double glazed windows offer excellent sound insulation. There is a small sainsburys local situated 30 metres from the front door and you can literally throw a stone from the window of the apartment across to the city walls.

BEDROOM

The bedroom is to the rear of the property which looks out onto a quiet car park and the BBC York building. I personally found the bed reasonably comfortable however my girlfriend struggled to sleep well on it. Also the bedroom window does not open for security reasons (which is completely understandable) thus giving no ventilation or cool air to the room. There is a small fan provided which does make a great difference. Also in the bedroom is a wardrobe and set of draws which provides plently of storage to allow guests to unpack and feel at home.

BATHROOM

The bathroom has amazing exposed wooden beams on the wall. 2 waffle dressing gowns and high quality cotton towels are provided. There is a good electric shower with bath. The only fault being the bath seemed deeper than it actually is. Another toilet roll would have been good.

KITCHEN AREA

The kitchen was again spotlessly clean and featured high quality appliances including a washing machine. I loved the fact that the chefs knives were high quality and kept sharp!

LIVING AREA

There is a large plasma TV which has free view along with a DVD player and CD player. The two sofas compliment the room however look softer and more comfortable than they actually are. The lighting and decor give the property a modern homely feel.

GOOD POINTS

- Location!!!!
- High quality fixtures and fittings.
- Cleanliness.
- Ease of booking and customer
service from Sarah 10/10.
- Decor of the apartment.

BAD POINTS

- We couldnt stay for longer!!

A well earned 4 stars out of 5! Brilliant stay thankyou!!! Definatly recommend to anyone looking to stay in York!

N.B
The only reason we didnt give our stay 5 stars was that we only had 1 toilet roll and had to buy more. Also we have stayed in other propertys which provided a welcome pack of a bottle of wine, chocolates, milk, eggs, orange juice, butter, sparkling water, biscuits, bread and a selection of cereals which ment we didnt have to go straight to the shops.

“Fabulous flat for a York getaway!”

This is a great apartment. It is beautiful, well appointed and in the perfect place to explore York. Steps away from the Bootham Bar, across the street from tourist bus and it comes with a parking place! We traveled during a heat wave and Sarah graciously returned during the week to bring us another fan to try to keep cool. The pictures are accurate....high ceilings, beautiful lighting. Very comfortable furnishings.

A beautifully presented apartment, with everything York has to offer right on its doorstep.

We received a very warm welcome from Sarah, and her attention to detail in furnishing the apartment makes it a really lovely place to stay - even the fold out bed for the third guest was very comfortable! All the attractions and restaurants/bars are five minutes away making it the perfect place to stay!

Thank you Sarah.
