“Adequate stay but some major flaws”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The apartment is well located and fairly clean with nice decor however there are some points we wish we knew before booking:
- no hot water despite leaving the switch on for 2 hours!- lukewarm at the very best
- be careful not to slip on the wooden floors- cannot walk around in socks as I slipped
- you are expected to take out your rubbish at the end of the stay to the bins downstairs at the very end of the block of flats- we have never been asked to do this at a holiday home before
- there is a lack of attention to detail e.g. no washing up sponge, dirty kitchen utensils, not enough toilet roll
- the bedrooms are very small, even as a petite lady I found I was squeezing between the wall and the corner of the bed to get in
Overall we still had a nice stay in York but it wasn't quite as good as we expected. For the price we paid we expected a lot more.
On the plus side they provide you with York minster entry tickets and tickets for the Richard 3rd experience which is handy and everything is walking distance.
Despite these drawbacks we are still grateful for a pleasant stay.

Hi Nikita

Thank you for your review. I have noted your comments & would like like to reassure you that this is the first negative review we have received - either at all or in respect of the points raised - in the 3 years the flat has been a holiday let. Please accept my apologies, though I would like to clarify the following:

1. The water is on a timer &, as per the instructions in the house book, if you put it on & keep topping it up you will not be without piping hot water. The whole apartment block is run off of this system.

2. I have been in touch with the cleaners regarding the dirty utensils for which they have apologised & they have assured me this will not happen again.

3. The cleaners always leave a new, unused cloth for guests to utilise at the sink,

4.We always leave guests 1 new toilet roll & 1 new kitchen roll, which should be more than adequate for a stay of a few nights

5. The price of £85 per night is priced taking into account proximity to the city centre, the cost of proximate holiday let apartments, and our certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor based on an average rating of a fraction under 5 stars.

Regards
Nikki

“Lovely place and close to the centre”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a very happy and comfortable stay here. We would stay again if we came back to York. Was only a short walk from the centre. Although 10am check out was very difficult to get out on time as I like to leave the place as I found it. There was not enough loo roll which was kept in a locked cupboard a spare one could of been left in the bathroom. Overall a very happy stay here

“Excellent place to stay would definitely return”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

With the wow factor when we opened the front door this is definitely a place I would stay again and recommend to friends and family ..Modern clean and homely with everything you would need for a self catering stay... very well located and just a short walk to town centre with local shops in close distance if anything needed ..advantage of a secure allocated parking space meant that could leave the car parked for the weekend whilst we attended a friends wedding.
Good communications with the owner with instructions for our stay thank you.
