“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Well, what can I say. To say we were impressed is an understatement.
When we arrive Sheena was there to meet us, showing us to the parking space. Offering to help with any bags we had. Showed us round the apartment, explaining everything and telling us just to ask if we were unsure. She gave us a low down of where was good to eat locally and where the main attractions were.
The apartment itself was perfect. Having everything you needed from cooking utensisl, to extra heaters, water bottles, umbrellas! Choice of cds, dvds and all the tourist information you needed. Was great having wi-fi too.
We have stayed at various places across the UK, often in the middle of nowhere and you find when you turn up you have nothing to use. However here, there was washing up liquid, shampoo etc. Bread, butter, milke, cereal amongst other treats in the cupboard. Not having to go out and get oil extra was a blessins.
Would love to come back here and if you want a stressful stay in York, stay here! Thank you Sheena for everything. Great apartment!

Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Great apartment, well-equipped with everything you could need during your stay.
Fantastic location in the heart of a beautiful city and an owner who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
Couldn't have asked for more and can't recommend it highly enough.

Sheena is a perfect host and the property is equally perfect.
Lovely little touches to make you feel so welcome and special,,, perfect
location again err perfect. secure parking directly under apartments with lift to all floors.
I teach customer service and I will use my experience of dealing with Sheena and her perfect apartment as an example to others of how it should be done.
Did I mention that this place is perfect.

10 minutes easy stroll to city centre. The provision of essentials was very welcome. The parking space was also a major bonus. Will most definitely recommend this apartment and use it again ourselves.

Sheena’s apartment is is located just 5 min walking distance from the city canter and 5 min from the central train/bus station in York. It is a modern and comfortable apartment very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Internet connection is very good. Sheena is a perfect host, warm and kind – when my husband and I arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find roses all over the apartment, lighted candles, fresh milk & butter in the fridge, cookies and so much more – thank you Sheena for your kindness and professionalism. It is the perfect place where quality and elegance blend well together. Sheena, we will come back.

“The most fantastic apartment you will ever find”

As seasoned travellers we have stayed in many apartments in many parts of the world in our time. We have enjoyed great hospitality and great accommodation but never better than both the welcome and the facilities we enjoyed in Sheena Fullerton's gorgeous apartment in Emperor's Wharf. We could not do justice in a short review to the attention to detail, cleanliness and treasure trove of treats we enjoyed. We especially loved the fluffy towels, scented candles, and oodles of food in the fully equipped kitchen. With DVDs, CDs, books, magazines and great tourist information in a handy folder we could not fault this place. Located within easy walking distance of the historic centre of York and with a handy parking space underneath the building we could have stayed for weeks! We're already planning our return...
