This was an ideal property for a couple with two children. We had been worried about the noise in hotels that back onto the street. On Saturday night there certain were a number of stag and hen groups!
However, this house is in a very quiet location and there was parking right outside.
The Sainsbury's is a couple of minutes away and all the sights we needed to see were walking distance.
The only issue for some people could be that the bedrooms back directly onto the staircase, so a possible problem for those whose kids are not careful, but otherwise an excellent property.
Oh and one final thing. Black towels may seem like a good idea, but there's a reason why all hotels use white ones!

Faultless accommodation, 2 minutes from City Centre and able to park the car right outside the property!
My husband and I have just returned from a weekend break and had such a good time I've decided to write my first ever review! I studied at York University 20 years ago and wanted to go back to see how things have changed. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay or a better location. Buckingham Street is just a two minute walk into the centre of York so no driving for a whole weekend! Despite the proximity to the city centre this is a no through road so lovely and quiet with no passing traffic at all.
After a very warm welcome from the agents we were given a parking permit for the duration of our stay so we could park directly outside the house. The agent showed us round the house which has been recently refurbished. Wow! No detail has been overlooked, Hotel Chocolat chocs, a quality bottle of wine were very welcome and soon consumed, quality furnishings throughout, super comfy beds and immaculate - everything seemed brand new.
Had we wanted to stay in for a meal the well equipped kitchen, though small (galley style) was well equipped with everything we could have needed. However, we took the chance to eat out in some of York's excellent restaurants- we had a super (but pricey) meal at The Blue Bicycle (ask for a downstairs booth), an ok meal in The Walmgate Ale house, a super lunch in The White Swan and lovely breakfasts in Cote and Bill's. We also went to half a dozen pubs (not bad for a weekend!) our favourites being The Golden Ball and The White Swan.
