“Excellent apartment and location”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Gillygate Central is situated within walking distance to all the sights in York and only 10 mins walk from the train station. The apartment is so clean and delicate in every way,a perfect place for a family of three or four people. Gillygate itself cater for all your needs and a Sainsbury is just around the corner. Owner Lynne is a warm and welcoming host,even leaving us wine,milk and fresh bread on arrival. We'll certainly be back soon.....!

“Perfect location, superb apartment!”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were very pleased to have booked Gillygate Central, the images online were good but it exceeded our expectations when we arrived. Beautifully fitted out to a high standard and very spacious for the two of us. We could easily have taken our two children with us and space would not have been an issue.
Perfect location for venturing out into York and mooching which is exactly what we were looking for.
Excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants all within anything from a 1 to 10 minute walk. York Minster, The Shambles etc all well within a 10 minute walk.
The owners were very helpful, providing us with plenty of useful info prior to our stay and the bottle of fizz, butter, bread and jam in the fridge for our arrival was a lovely touch.
If we ever return for a break in York, and i'm sure we will, we'll definitely look to book up at Gillygate Central again.

Pros: All of the above and more...

Cons: None

See you again.

“Stylish Comfortable Stay!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A real home from home!! Very comfortable, warm & inviting apartment only minutes from the stunning York Minster. Attention to detail on the accommodation finishes, quality of whole apartment shows the care taken on the conversion of the property.We would not hesitate to recommend & would book again if we were to holiday in York. A big thank you to Lynne.& family.

“No floods! Media hype”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We have just stayed at this beautiful apartment and did not need our wellies! We could not believe what we were watching on TV as this apartment could not be more central but was certainly not flooded and we could access the whole of York apart from the river frontage. It would be a shame if the tv reports put people off as we had such a great time in this warm, modern and clean little gem. We would definitely like to go back.

“First class in every way.”
Reviewed December 26, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely basement flat, everything was as described & the whole experience from the booking onwards was faultless. Superb central location only minutes from York Minster we travelled by train & a car is not necessary. Very good places for food & drink only a short stroll away. I would certainly would book again & recommend highly to anyone.

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 3, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We celebrated our anniversary recently with a week-end in York, staying at this apartment. We will be returning, as it is excellent. The apartment has all you need and more for a short or longer break, and is perfectly situated for both sight seeing and shopping in the City Centre. And after all that's done, you have yards to walk to many pubs, bars or restaurants.
Well worth a visit, good value.
