“Luxury & comfort in the heart of the city”
Reviewed 26 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

An extremely luxurious apartment in a fantastic central location. The parking permit was a real bonus and the convenience of a Local Sainsbury's store beneath the apartment was so convenient. The apartment far exceeded our expectations, very modern, really well equipped with top quality beds, linen & towels. The standard of service offered by the owner & Christine, the housekeeper, goes far beyond what would be expected. We enjoyed an incredible weekend in a beautiful city, we even saw the sun! Will look forward to our next visit.

Excellent apartment, clean and modern. Ideal for a family of four or 3 adults. Great location only 2 minutes walk from York Minster, 5 minutes to Bettys Tea Rooms. A local Sainsburys underneath open until midnight. Would highly recommend

“Fantastic accomodation in a great location”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Rather than taking the usual hotel option, we chose to stay at 7 Aspire for a 3 night stay in April 2013, and we were absolutely delighted with that decision.

The property is superbly located close to Bootham Bar, which is one of the ancient gateways into the old city and 5 mins walk from the Minster, pubs, restaurants, shops and other attractions. It is also very close to the start of the open-top bus tour.

The apartment is on the 3rd (top) floor of the building, with a rather handy Sainsburys Express mini supermarket on the ground floor (which is open until midnight). It is the corner flat so has great views in 2 directions across the city, including a view of the Minster towers.

It is very modern, spotlessly clean, superbly equipped and very comfortable in all areas. An open plan kitchen, living area and two large bedrooms. The children were particularly delighted with the enormous flat screen 3D TV (glasses supplied!), BluRay DVD, and a large selection of films to watch. There is also a large flat screen TV in the main bedroom. Freesat TV channels available. Of course, the modern day essential of WiFi available at great speeds - iPads and iPhones all connected and working as quickly as you would expect at home.

There is a car park next to the building, and a parking pass was provided for the duration of our stay.

The only minor down-side was that the only lift in the building went out-of-service on the 2nd day of our stay.

Overall we would highly recommend this property as a self-catering alternative to a hotel and we are looking forward to a return visit in future.

“A great convenient place to stay.”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We are frequent visitors to York and found 7Aspire to be the best place we have stayed. The apartment is luxurious, spacious and very well equipped. It is close to all major attractions, being literally a couple of hundred yards from the Bootham Bar entrance to the city and just around the corner from Gillygate. For self-catering we used the Sainsbury’s Local on the ground floor and there are many eating-places within walking distance. We especially liked the Italian on Gillygate. The owners offer a free parking permit to the adjoining car park, which in York is a fantastic bonus. All in all a great place to stay.
