“I'll be back”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I were visiting York to attend the races,but when trying to book a hotel as we usually do ,we found it difficult as they were mostly fully booked. We thought we'd try a flat and are very glad we did,as this flat has everything you need. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The owner Maggie meets you on arrival shows you into your private secure parking space, ( a brilliant bonus ), takes you into the apartment which is even better than the photographs, goes over all the things you need to be aware of and answer any questions. Maggie has also provided a welcome pack that she has arranged by contacting you before your stay. Bread,butter,milk cereal,wine, sweets, fruit juice as well as coffee , tea and other items needed in the kitchen. There is also free wifi and I would recommend to everyone.

“Comfortable Flat”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just had our second visit to this lovely flat. Spotless clean, comfortable and owner ensures you are entirely happy and that everything is to your liking .

Car parking available on site and this is a great asset .

Welcome pack left to start you off , milk, bread, butter, wine, sweets all much appreciated. The proximity to city centre ideal and for touring Yorkshire.

Overall a lovely experience staying in the flat.

“Great location and lovel Apartment”
Reviewed July 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment was in a great location and spotlessly clean. It had everything you needed and more. An added bonus was the secure parking. It was only a five minute walk to the city centre. Maggie met us on arrival and was really helpful showing us around and telling us all about York.
Nothing was too much trouble. Once again Maggie Thank you!

“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
