“Apartment in centre of city”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Extremely neat apartment. Owner Maggie meets you and gives you an extensive description of everything in the apartment. Car park is useful being in the centre of town. Full kitchen with clothes washer. No dishwasher & small fridge. Couch a bit too firm for my liking. View to street, not river. If you like spotless this is the place for you. As we were travelling for some months, felt it was a bit overpriced in comparison to other places we had stayed at.

“Good Value Modern Apartment”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This apartment is close to the centre of York, just on the other side of the Ouse River, so is ideal for sightseeing. The basement car park was a real bonus as was the washing machine. It is stylish, modern, spacious and comfortable and well equipped for dining in (not that we did). There was a little road noise with the windows open, but nothing to be bothered with. Maggie met us on arrival and gave us a very thorough introduction to the apartment and provided some breakfast supplies to keep us going for the 4 days of our stay. All in all a very pleasant stay with lots of positives and no negatives.

“Amazing apartment in central location with fantastic host”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in this apartment during a 4 day trip to York, it could not have been more central to the city. All the hustle and bustle of York is only 5 minutes away and allowed us to pop to and from the flat during the day depending on our plans. The start of the city walls is a 2 minute walk away which was fantastic and you are right on the river.
The parking is secure but you do not need a car once you are there. The host Maggie was very informative and gave us a warm welcome and the hamper was a lovely touch, cannot rate this apartment any higher we will definitely book again.
During our stay my other half asked me to marry him in the apartment so this place will always be special to us now.
Thank you for such a memorable stay.

“Perfect location to explore York and beyond”
Reviewed July 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I enjoyed a week in York at the end of the June. The flat had everything we needed and Maggie was more than helpful. The location was fantastic - a short walk into the city centre, a short walk to the station and plenty of places to eat, drink or buy food to cook back in the flat nearby. We were woken by people stumbling noisily home after a night out on the Friday and the Saturday but the location and the flat itself more than made up for that slight niggle. We'll definitely return should we visit York again.

“Excellent York Accommodation”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were very pleased with the apartment which was spotless and very comfortable. Maggie, the owner, was present to meet us on our arrival and provided a warm and friendly welcome. Our visit to York was from 9 - 16 April 2016 and was very enjoyable. Having good accommodation goes a long way to making a holiday a pleasant experience.

“Great apartment and lovely break”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Apartment was very nice, clean and modern with all the things you need for a break

Apartment Is right by the river and 5 minutes walk from town and very close to local amenties, also you have an allocated parking space.

The only trip we could not do was the York dungeons as it was closed due to flooding,

Maggie was a great host and would come back again and stay in the same apartment. Thanks
