“Excellent. Thoroughly recommend”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just spent a week staying here. Loved everything about the flat and location. Flat was ideal for my hubby and I. Lovely and clean with all you'd need for a home from home type of break. The flat is ideally set at end of a quiet cul de sac and overlooks the river Foss. If you struggle climbing upstairs the flat is on 2nd floor. The only noise was the geese as they seem to like the grass beside this part of the river at about teatime before flying off for the night. We travelled to York by train and a taxi from the station was £5 approx. Centre of York 10 -15 mins walk to visit The Minster, Shambles etc
We didn't need to cook for the entire week as there's Wetherspoons just 2 min walk away( ideal for breakfast) and numerous restaurants and take aways within 5mins walk. You'll need to take tea, coffee sugar if you fancy a cuppa. There's a Sainsburys Local and Tesco Local open till 11pm on Piccadily which is the street into town next to Wetherspoons/|Travelodge.
We'll definitely book this flat again for our next York visit.

“Really good”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I will get the only issue out of the way first. The Wifi was adequate but rather slow. The owner is planning to look into this. Otherwise everything was really good from location, just outside the city walls, and view, especially if you like swan watching, to the décor of the living room and the equipping of the kitchen (a goodish kitchen knife for example) and bathroom (bath handles and a non-slip mat for the bath.) I could connect my iPod to the nice little stereo and there was a good range of TV channels.
All in all, a place I would be happy to live in all year round. Very quiet but still very connected to the outside world.

This house gave me the perfect base for two week of home away from home. The location of the property could not be better: a pleasant view overlooking River onus and an easy stroll into the heart of the city. The house is well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The city of York and its surroundings can easily entertain adults and children for a solid week and at the end of that there will still be many attractions left.

This is the best holiday we have had, so much so that we plan to stay here again!
The apartment is just right for two, its location is perfect for museums, shops, the river and amenities, but quietly tucked away from traffic and tourists.
The owner and housekeeper were very helpful.
Would not hesitate to recommend ~ 5 star +

“Cosy accomodation close to everthing in the city”

Would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone visiting York. We have been visiting York for 25 years and have stayed in a variety of hotels, B&Bs and flats. This one is in a quiet location overlooking the confluence of the Fosse and Ouse rivers and is literally 2/3 minutes walk to be in the shops, on the walls, by the river or at the castle. Parking area is secure and being at the end of a cul de sac there is no through or passing traffic. Bed was very comfortable and the proper gas fired central heating a real benefit on chilly evenings. On the downside the flat is a bit small but it has a real cosy homely atmosphere. The owner was very friendly and helpful with the booking arrangements and there are clear easy instructions for arrival procedures. Would definitely stay ther again.
