“Enjoyable”
Reviewed April 2, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Mallard Flat was very comfortable and clean and had all the necessary utensils and dishes to enable us to prepare a few meals and enjoy a couple of evenings at "home". The flat was about a 15 minute walk into town or an approx 5 pound cab ride, not too bad at all. Both Richard and Kathy were very pleasant and everything was handled professionally. I would recommend this flat for anyone who would like a nice get away to York.

“Really nice flat”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a great time in York! The flat is very handy for the Railway Museum, and a shortish walk into York itself (perhaps 15 leisurely minutes to Betty's). The flat is modern, well-equipped and nicely furnished, and we immediately relaxed into our short stay. The housekeeper (Chris) went out of her way to be friendly and helpful, which was very nice as well. All in all, we had a lovely time with no problems.

“comfortable, well equipped and convenient”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Liked the fact bread and milk were provided on arrival. After travelling to York by train, one does not want to walk through to the shop to get the essentials before sitting down with a cup of tea!
Reasonable cupboard space

“Lovely flat”
Reviewed December 21, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at Mallard flat with our friends for 3 nights. We found the flat really comfortable, warm and clean. It was very well equipped with everything you could want. There was a stock of basic groceries eg sugar, coffee, teabags, salt and pepper but also extras such as pasta and olive oil. Milk and butter were also supplied. The bathrooms were good quality with constant hot water and the beds were comfortable. We liked the open plan kitchen living area and the wi if connection was very good. It took us 10 minutes to walk into the city. All in all a smashing little place and good value for money.

“Fantastic apartment for a young family”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

After one of those best-forgotten journeys with small children it was great to be met on arrival by a friendly face to show us round the appartment, which has all one needs to stay comfortably for a holiday. Kitchen-diner-sitting room well equipped and great to have a washing machine. Great to have a proper bed rather than a sofa bed for the grown-ups and a separate bedroom for the kids. A little kiddy-proofing required to move various possibly-breakable items out of reach, and a bit of rearranging in the kids bedroom, but generally child-friendly. Some plastic or melamine cups/plates/bowls would be a useful addition.
We've stayed in this part of York before, so we know the area. Great for the Railway Museum (free entry, big trains, play areas and cafes), bit of a walk into the city but there's always the Land Train from the museum! Loads to do in York and once again the visit was too short to do all we wanted.
It was a pleasure to stay here. Thank you Richard!
