“Best of York”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Of all the properties we rented on our trip around the UK this was by far our favourite. Maggie greeted us upon our arrival and provided up-to-date information on York sightseeing that would make a travel agent proud. Location, amenities, and decor of Emperors Wharf could not have been better. The kitchen was fully equipped and made for easy and enjoyable meal making. We'll definitely be back.

“ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, COULD NOT FIND FAULT”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Everything about this apartment is fantastic. The contact from Maggie was brilliant and we was made to feel very welcome from the moment we met. You could not ask for a better location with secure and free parking a added bonus. The apartment itself was spotless and had 2 nights brilliant sleep, the complimentary welcome pack is very thoughtful. I honestly can not find any fault and will definitely be returning and can guarantee if you book this apartment you will not be disappointed.

“spotlessly clean modern apartment”

person found this review helpful

we stayed at this apartment in York to celebrate my 50th birthday arriving about 6 30 in the evening to a friendly welcome from Mike who gave us a tour of the apartment and some very useful information about the local area bars and restaurants. the apartment was modern and spotlessly clean with everything you could want. its so relaxing staying in an apartment with home from home comforts as opposed to a hotel. The welcome pack was really nice with wine, chocolates bread and milk etc. location was perfect just a short stroll into York with many bars and restaurants on the doorstep. car parking space was an added bonus and appeared to be very secure, we didn't need to use our car whilst there because everything is within walking distance. would definitely stay again if visiting York and recommend to friends

“Could not find fault - perfect”
Reviewed November 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed here recently with my husband for my birthday and it was wonderful. York is a beautiful city and our visit was made perfect by this apartment. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need - all good quality and in immaculate condition. Being met personally by Maggie at the entrance to the car park when we arrived was very helpful and made us feel very special! The welcome pack you receive is also unexpected and a lovely touch. Last but not least, the location is ideal for a city break and everything was within the distance specified, if not closer. This was very important to us as it isn't always the case with holiday rentals. We had such a brilliant time and will definitely return - if we can - it gets booked up quickly and I can see why!

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed November 11, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We booked this apartment for a 3 night stay to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary. Contact from Maggie right up until the day we arrived was excellent and she even met us outside to guide us to the private underground car park. The apartment had everything you needed and the welcome pack was bespoke to our needs, even down to the wine!

The location is amazing, just a few minutes walk to The Shambles so very central. Spoilt for choice with restaurants in the area too. This was our 3rd visit to York and we find somewhere different to eat every time.

Very nice area to stay in as well, quieter than I expected so a good nights sleep was not hard to come by! Would recommend and definitely stay again, Maggie and Mike were always available if you had to call for anything.

“A1 IN ALL COUNTS”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Arrived by Maggie who was so friendly , helpful and informative, the welcome wine was a bonus!
The apartment is in an excellent location we never used the car at all , the standard of the apartment was exceptional and we could not believe we did not need the heating on at all for October.
We have stayed before and already looking forward to a further visit next year.
Kepp up the good work Maggie!
