“Excellent, modern and clean accommodation”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lynne, the owner of the property located on the lower level of a Victorian house was there to meet and greet us when we arrived. Lynne made sure we knew where everything was in the apartment. The apartment is modern, well furnished and sparkling. She welcomed us with a bottle of bubbly which was great after our long journey. The apartment is located in an ideal location close to the main train station, Museum gardens, the York Minster, beautiful shops and traditional English pubs. Everything you need in town is a short walk away.

“Fantastic apartment, absolutely faultless”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a great stay in this recently renovated, spacious apartment. With a full-size kitchen and nearby supermarket it's nice to have the option of dining in after a busy day sightseeing in York. There are two brand new TVs, decent strength free wi-fi and a state-of-the-art bathroom. All the comforts of home and more! The separate bedroom at the rear of the property was very quiet and you won't find a more comfortable bed.
Gillygate is very central to all the attractions, restaurants and nightlife York has to offer. Everything, including the station is within walking distance. You really don't need a car to explore the city from here.

“Perfect apartment with perfect host”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were smitten the minute we entered the apartment. It is tastefully designed and cozy, with all the amenities needed. The location is perfect. Just a few minutes walk from the center of attractions.

Lynne is a warm and gracious host. She makes sure her guests enjoy their stay in York. In fact, she welcomed us with a bottle of sparkling rose, bread, butter, milk, coffee and tea. What a thoughtful gesture! Then, in her apartment folder she gives detailed recommendations for places to visit and to eat. And she is spot on with her recommendations.

I will definitely be recommending York and Lynne's apartment to family and friends.

“Fantastic location with caring landlords”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay in Gillygate on the edge of York. Good range of restaurants and the Cathedral within 2 minutes. With car parking we could also travel out of York and walk to the station to go by train on the Settle Carlyle route. Modern kitchen and bathroom.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I cannot find fault in one thing at Gillygate. The location was unbelievably convenient. The apartment was immaculate. Lynne was amazing and such a pleasure. She went out of her way several times to make sure I was well taken care of and that I was enjoying my stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, I only hope I get to come again!!
