“Absolutely Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I really can't rate Stonegate Retreat highly enough - it was absolutely perfect. Situated within York City walls on Blake Street (a stones throw from Bettys famous tearooms) is a secure doorway which will whisk you away to peace and quiet. It's definitely a retreat, the perfect place to enjoy all that York has to offer but also offer you the peace and tranquility you need on a break away.

My husband and I stayed here 31st Jan - 2nd Feb and had a wonderful two nights. The apartment is beautifully presented and had everything (and more) we could have wished for. We met Catherine, the property owner, who had been so lovely and helpful throughout the booking process and because she organised parking for us a little further out of the city she very kindly picked us up and dropped us off at the apartment.

We couldn't believe just how peaceful the apartment area (Stonegate Court) was and had fabulous views of York Minster.

The apartment was huge and is certainly large enough for the 4 people it sleeps. All the rooms are very large and immaculate. What we also loved was the fact the main bedroom had thick curtains which keep the early morning light out. The Minster bells were beautiful to listen to on Sunday morning and I went and enjoyed them on our balcony too.

It was so lovely to be able to stroll out of the apartment straight onto the bustling streets of York but then 'retreat' back to the apartment. It really is the perfect place to stay in York and next time we have a child-free break we will definitely be back!

“Great central location”
Reviewed December 4, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stonegate Retreat is in a great central location, close to York Minster, & although you can only stop briefly outside to pack/unpack during certain hours a parking permit is supplied. The apartment is very well maintained & equipped, the beds (including the sofa bed) are very comfortable & the showers are great. Catherine was very helpful both when booking & upon arrival, kindly letting us arrive early & leave late. The welcome pack was indeed very welcome too! Will certainly recommend & hope to return ourselves.

“Unbeatable location”
Reviewed October 26, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Stonegate Retreat is a fabulous apartment right in the heart of York, about 100 yards from York Minster and about the same to Betty's Tea Rooms!
It is a little oasis of calm above the busy streets of York, with fine views of the Minster. The apartment is really well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. It is remarkably quiet given its location, so a good night's sleep is pretty much guaranteed.
It is well equipped with a modern kitchen and a comfortable lounge.
We would definitely book again.

“Wonderful location in the centre of York. Immaculate apartment!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location of this lovely 2 bedroom apartment simply could not be better. It is not far from York Minster and a stones throw from Betties Tea Rooms. York is a great city to visit. It has a fascinating history and many wonderful old buildings and artefacts are there to see. The city is quite small and easy to explore on foot and the Stonegate Retreat is the perfect location from which to do it.
The apartment is kept in tip top condition and is very clean. It has every amenity and the owner, Catherine, is extremely attentive and welcoming. I have no criticisms at all and I am not easily pleased!

“Central, spotless and spacious”

person found this review helpful

We had a brilliant long weekend at Stonegate Retreat. The location is really central, so convenient for the train station and all of the city centre sights. The apartment was spotless, very spacious, bright and comfortable. The kitchen was also very well equipped and the hamper was a lovely treat!

Dealing with Catherine was really easy - she responded quickly to emails and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
