“Lovely central location with cosy well appointed flat.,excellent facilities.”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Really enjoyed our Christmas at this lovely flat so central to themMinster and all amenities. The flat is beautifully furnished and decorated with good heating,excellent modern bathroom and really comfortable beds.
We felt very spoilt having everything so close especially Bistro 8 just down the road. The food there was very very good. Having a garage to put the car away was great. We never needed it in York. Hope to go again and finish the museums.

Incredible hosts, Lynne went over and above to make sure we had everything we could possibly need from maps and guides through to bread, butter etc. The apartment was spotless and the perfect location for exploring York! We cannot wait to go back and will jump to recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in York!

“Another Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed December 5, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My parents visited York for another short break to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. They were treated to another wonderful stay! Despite the rain they made the most of their trip, commenting on their return that it didn't matter that they got soaked because they had such a warm, cosy apartment to return to. The lovely touch of a bottle of bubbly and an anniversary chocolate left by Lynne was so thoughtful and much appreciated.
Gillygate is a truly special find and no doubt they will return again to continue their love affair with the city of York.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed November 17, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just arrived home from a 4 night stay at this great little apartment in York. The location was brilliant, practically on top of Bootham Bar. The owner was friendly and welcoming and popped her head in after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. The complimentary bottle of wine along with the bread, milk, coffee, fruit etc. were most welcome. The whole place was spotlessly clean and all of the fixtures and fittings in the apartment were good quality. The entrance into the shower is a little snug but once inside it is spacious with a great head of instant hot water, and there were plenty of lovely thick white towels. The bathroom mirror is large and very well lit with plenty of space for toiletries etc. - great for putting on my makeup. There's ample storage space in the bedroom with plenty of hangers and the bed is extremely comfortable (very firm mattress). One detail which pleased me greatly was an electric socket for my hair dryer next to a well lit mirror. I know it's a small thing but it's one that so many other places get wrong.
The only slight negative was some noise from the floor above. This was only a problem on two occasions as it did wake us up, once starting at 6.30am and continuing for an hour - obviously no carpets up there. However, this will in no way stop us from booking here in the future as everything else was spot on.

I'm glad you noticed the hairdryer socket. It has always bothered me in hotels and I was determined my guests would not have that annoyance.

“Spotless apartment, perfect location!”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Highly recommended for couples or small families- a perfect apartment, very clean and tidy with everything you could need included. Children said the sofa beds were comfy, and I can vouch for the extremely comfortable and very large bed..we struggled to get up every morning! Location absolutely perfect- very near all the shops, museums and landmarks, no need to use a car unless you wish to go exploring outside of the city. Lynne was friendly and helpful but mostly left us to it, and we had a fantastic time. Cannot think of anything that could improve this place- you won't be disappointed!

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lynne was really lovely to deal with. Very helpful and felt like a friend, with her helpful advice.
The place was great in every way. The location was just outside the city walls and was Impeccably clean. Lots of fresh, clean white linen and towels. Modern, wooden floors and very comfortable king size bed and 2 single beds made up from sofas. Can't recommend the place enough.
