It is hard to imagine an apartment being any better than this one at Popes Head Court. The owner and her daughter do a fantastic job and really understand what visitors want. Communication is excellent from the get go, and both are always available via phone or email no matter what the request.
The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, spacious throughout and centrally located - having parked our car we were able to visit all the sites on foot for the rest of our stay. Comfortable beds and relaxing showers make it feel like home from home, but so too do special touches such as chargers for all your devices, good Wi-Fi, a Sonos speaker, a nice filter coffee maker, and a couple of foodie treats to help you settle in.
This was my first visit to York and if I should return there is only one place I'd want to stay.
This beautifully appointed apartment is in the heart of York--just where you want to be to experience all that the city has to offer. We were welcomed by the friendly owner at the nearby car park and and quickly introduced to the little alleyways for which York is so well-known as we made our way to the apartment. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom flat was fitted with everything we needed and was perfect for Americans looking to live like locals as we traveled through England. The nearby bakeries and pubs saw a lot of our business as well. It is close to everything you might want to visit as a tourist. We were welcomed by a bottle of prosecco and beautiful flowers on the table. Classy. We would recommend this apartment and its helpful owner to anyone looking to stay in the heart of York.
The apartment in in central York convenient for shops, restaurants and attractions. It is a beautiful apartment with every possible amenity. On arrival I was met by the lovely owner who made me feel very welcome. Some wonderful touches, a bottle of prosecco, cakes from Betty's, butter, milk and a fruit bread. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. I will definitely return next time I stay in York.
This apartment looked amazing online and the central location was perfect. On arrival the flat was beyond our expectations, so many little extras and finishing touches made us feel so welcome. From Prosecco and croissants right down to phone chargers and toiletries, everything was thought of. The decor is amazing, everything was immaculate and very clean. All the rooms have been so well thought out and by far the best apartment I've ever stayed in.
The location was brilliant, an easy walk from the train station and simple to get anywhere and everywhere in the city centre. I've already recommended it to friends and we'll hopefully be back again ourselves soon. Thank you for making our stay in York so great.
We had a really lovely stay in this superb apartment. The owner was very flexible with respect to our arrival and departure times (subject to there being no bookings for our start and end day) and picking up the key was straight forward. The apartment is very well equipped and furnished to an extremely high standard. The sofa bed being on the mezzanine floor worked really well as a third "bedroom". The apartment was lovely and bright due to the enormous picture windows in the living room and main bedroom. The whole apartment was very spacious with 2 big bathrooms. Although the kitchen was small it had everything we needed. When we arrived the owner had left some really lovely treats for us which made us feel very welcome. We did have a slight glitch with one of the appliances but this was resolved very speedily. The beds were really comfortable - I don't often sleep well the first night in a strange bed, but this was not a problem here. The apartment is in a great location in York - right in amongst the shops and restaurants and only a very short stroll to the Minster and castle areas. A car park pass was provided to leave the car in a nearby car park as there is no parking at the apartment. The centre of York is pedestrianised (which makes walking around lovely) but this does mean you can only drive to the apartment to drop off and pick up luggage in in the morning and evening. This was not a problem however.
Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely return again if we were staying in York. There is such a lot to do it certainly merits a return visit.
