“Great location”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Spent 5 days here in December just before Christmas. The location is very convenient - an easy walk to everything of interest. The rail station is also walking distance but a taxi is recommended if you have more than one suitcase. Taxi fare was approximately 5 pounds. The apartment is clean and comfortable. The owner, Sheena, was very welcoming and responsive to all questions or needs. We had a little difficulty initially with the water heater and wifi but Sheena was able to provide tips for how to manage these so all was well. Definitely a place for a single couple rather than a family but Sheena has a larger place in the same building for a slightly larger group.
Great location for visiting York and a really nice alternative to a cramped hotel room - especially if you like to have the option of a simple meal "at home" and a soak in the bath after a day of walking around town.

“so convenient.............”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you like York then you'll love this place.
Arrive by car and park under the appt..Then forget it's there. Everything is within walking distance and York is the sort of town best explored on foot.
Try the newly reopened art gallery.
walk away fro the town and there is a choice of places for breakfast.
Beware cinnamon bagels at stan and ramonas - huge.

Appt has everything. great choice for a city break.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Having stayed numerous self catering establishments over many years, I have to say that this place had the best fit out I have ever experienced. The owner has been extremely thoughtful and generous in thinking of every little thing to increase the comfort and convenience of her tenants. The apartment was clean, quiet and only a few minutes into the centre of York and close to many restaurants. Highly recommended.

“Fabulous location”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Emperors Wharf apartment was perfectly located to view York & many of the main tourist attractions - very roomy for two people.
The apartment was fitted out with everything in mind for travelling tourists, so well appointed & the attention to detail was much appreciated - it certainly made our stay easy & restful.
Fabulous eateries were close by, as were supermarkets. We would certainly recommend this apartment for a York holiday.
