“What an amazing apartment!”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Maggie's apartment from 29th-31st May for a trip to York Races. Communication with Maggie before we arrived was excellent. We met at the apartment, Maggie showed us everything we needed to know. The underground secure parking space was a huge bonus in a city centre. The apartment is equipped with everything you could need and more - a real home from home. The complimentary welcome pack including wine and chocolates was a lovely touch. It was a 5 minute walk into York so a perfect location. We will definitely stay here again and won't even bother looking at hotel availability. We have not hesitation at all in recommending this apartment and think that Maggie is a fantastic host. Thank you for a lovely stay - Julie and Gary, Wirral

“Outstanding accommodation and location”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fantastic few days in York, staying in this First Class apartment. Outstanding attention to every detail, yet comfortable and cosy. Maggie was a superb host, who made us feel very welcome and well-informed about our surroundings. Lovely treats of wine and chocolate left for us to enjoy, and breakfast package easily sufficient for our needs. I have no doubt that we will want to return as soon as we can. Still lots to see in York and Yorkshire - it's such an ideal base.

“First class base for a long weekend”
Reviewed March 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

15min walk from the station,10min from town couldn't be better for a base. The apartment is kitted out to cater for your every need. Very nice welcome pack in the fridge.Couldnot fault the apartment. Should it be a problem there is a few steps up to the front door. The owners made us very welcome.

Thank you for your review. Delighted to hear that you found the apartment an ideal base for your weekend in York. Should anybody find the steps a challenge, they can be avoided by taking the lift directly from the car park.
Kind regards, Maggie

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Excellent accommodation, used this time for a business trip. The host is wonderful and the welcome pack delightful. It is situated on the river and town is only a 5 minute walk for shopping and going out for a meal. Local shops for incidentals are just around the corner.

“Absolutely brilliant!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed at Emperors Wharf for two nights over Valentines weekend. We had a brilliant welcome from Maggie made extra special with the welcome pack and red roses!

I would 100% recommend this apartment - you cannot fault it! It is in an excellent location close to the city centre so no need to use the car.

Once again, thank you Maggie for the wonderful stay. Can't wait to go back!

“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.
