“Delightful apartment in a stunning location”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We have now stayed in the apartment on two occasions. John is a most welcoming host and every detail is carefully thought through. The apartment is beautifully presented and very well equipped. Accessed off Blake Strret, when you emerge at first floor level, it is like an oasis in the middle of the city - York Minster dominates the view down the "street" and the only sounds which really intrudes are the bells of the Minster. It really is difficult to see how this apartment and its location could be any better.

“Perfect for a city break”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Staying at 15 Stonegate Court for a short break at half-term was an absolute pleasure. The apartment is conveniently central - Betty's Tea Rooms and the Minster are stone throws away. It is stylish and impeccably clean and the owners were extremely considerate, even leaving Halloween cakes for my daughters. I would highly recommend this property.

I booked the apartment literally few hours before arrival and john was being so helpful replied frequently and helped us to settle down, even luggage storage on the last day, suggested beautiful tourist attractions with transport info and recommended us to visit the cathedral service. We were very satisfied with the apartment with its central location, which is very convenient to go anywhere!(visityork is just 1min walk on the same street) With posh shower gel and cake provided for welcoming gift, also everything we need provided, we will definitely recommend this apartment!

“Excellent, location!”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

First class apartment and so close to all the attractions of this wonderful city. The fact it has a parking space ( a few minutes walk away) makes it even more appealing.Attention to detail from the owners made our stay so enjoyable. This included a visit from John to check everything was ok for us....which indeed it was! We enjoyed the bottle of wine and treat from Betty's thank you. There was plenty of room for our son who is a wheelchair user to move around. This truly is a hidden gem, we would throughly recommend it for a stay in York.

“Fabulous Location”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a wonderful two-week stay in June 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed staying at 15 Stonegate Court. I booked via the Internet and communication with John was most helpful and extremely prompt and we were provided with directions to the apartment and everything needed to make finding the apartment and unloading luggage as easy as possible. We fortunately met John on arrival at the apartment and he was most helpful in explaining everything.
The apartment itself was beautifully furnished with everything one needed provided along with lovely extras to get you started such as milk and tea and coffee and a gorgeous cake from Betty's and a bottle of wine.
The position is second to none and was a welcome relief to walk through to the door and into the foyer and away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.
Thanks, John, for making our stay so memorable. We had two lots of relatives stay with us and all were equally impressed.
One tiny downside was the distance to the parking spot. However, knowing York and the fact that parking spaces are practically non-existent in the city centre the distance is understandable.
Having said that, would most definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit the fabulous city of York.

“Wonderful apartment, great location”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were looking for an apartment in central York for a weeks stay. Location is always the most important consideration for us and this was perfect. Close to everything and yet quiet and peaceful, great views of the Minster and over the rooftops of York. The owner, John was a joy to deal with. tHe responded quickly and fully to our emails and was unfailingly pleasant and informative. He even provided us with a notice to use in our car, very thoughtful.
Picking up the keys and accessing to the apartment was easy. The apartment itself was wonderful. Spotlessly clean, well organised and fitted and beautifully decorated. John had left us a welcome gift of wine and cake, and after our 4+ hour drive we really enjoyed the Yorkshire tea and fresh milk, such a nice touch.
We really appreciated the fact that John has spared no expense on bed linen and towels, not always the case when renting apartments. These were 5* hotel grade and he works hard to provide a very high level of comfort to his guests, and we really appreciated this.
We were very sad to leave after our 7 night stay, but are very much looking forward to a return visit very soon.
