“Great location for York - with parking!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Accommodation - the double and 2 singles layout is much better than double plus sofa beds elsewhere - plus it means the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is usable!! Comfortable and simple, ground floor a bonus. Parking space is like gold dust in York - with this place you simply park up, use your legs and hey presto you're in the Shambles, on the walls or in the shops in literally 10 minutes!

“Good access if you have mobility needs.”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Just come back from a stay in York. And we stayed at the Mallard, it is a great place to stay for York centre, and the surrounding areas. The best part was the fact my brother has to use an electric scooter and he could get into York it self without any problems ( we were a bit worried he might have had problems) and he could go to the national train museum on his own as it is just across the road. The flat is excellent, very comfortable, on the ground floor, no steps up the main door, and flat entrance to the flat. Thank you for a great stay Richard and Simon.

“Beautiful modern flat a just 10 minutes walk from the Minster”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The Mallard flat is a wonderfully equipped, spotless and tastefully decorated modern ground floor apartment. It lies a stones throw from the National Railway Museum, with some handy local shops just 3 minutes walk and just 10 minutes from the heart of York City.
Myself, wife, daughter and her friend had a fantastic time time in York and a big part of that was where we stayed. If we return to York as again (which I'm sure we will) the Mallard will definitely be top of our list for accommodation! and a little extra thank you goes out to the house keeper Simon, who kindly posted my daughters coat back to us.

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here over Easter weekend ( 2 adults 2 kids) and were over the moon to discover this place.
It was well equipped, clean and ideally located to explore York.
The owner and housekeeper were very accommodating and we really appreciated the extras that other self catering hosts don't offer.
We will definitely be recommending to our friends and family and hope to return again soon.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

“Great location”
Reviewed April 2, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Location was ideal for us (mum, dad, and daughter), as within 10 minutes walk you were right into the middle of York itself. Flat was well prepared, clean and spacious. Would be ideal for a family like us with young children. The kids even get their own bathroom. National Railway museum is right by, and that is great for kids to have a run around whilst learning.

“Clean, Tidy and Perfect Location for Exploring York”
Reviewed January 7, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Mallard Flat is located in an excellent position for the National Railway Museum, only a 5 min walk. It is also close to the station (10 min walk) and City (~20 Min walk). The flat was clean and tidy and more importantly in the middle of winter, warm. The housekeeper and owner were extremely helpful and communication whilst booking and before the stay were good. The provisions provided including bread, milk, tea, coffee and butter on arrival were a thoughtful touch and meant we didn't need to search for the local shop after a long journey. We had a great time staying there. If we visit York again we would stay here again and recommend to friends. Thank you Richard and Simon for making us feel so welcome.

“Christmas in York”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Mallard Flat is a modern, warm and comfortable flat. We had everything there that we needed. Approx. 20 minute walk into the city of York, so a great location. The owner and housekeepers were very helpful and easy to contact if required.
