“Perfect base for two people to enjoy the wonderful city of York”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This compact apartment is wonderfully located, modern, clean, comfortable and well equipped.
We were greeted by a smiling Sheena and shown around. We were astounded at the range and quality of the welcome package. It even included high quality conserves, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and lots of other things in addition to the usual milk, bread and a few eggs.
The space is small with nothing in the bedroom but the bed and two small side tables with small drawers. Clothes had to be hung up in a working cupboard in the hallway. Likewise, the parking provided, while very secure, involved very tight turns through a small entrance. A driver needs confidence or a smaller car. I would not recommend the flat for more than two chummy people.
For us, however, the stay was wonderful and if we come back to York we would certainly want to stay there again. We understand that Sheena also has a two bedroom apartment but we did not see that.

Thanks very much for your review and I really appreciate your kind words in our guestbook. So glad you enjoyed your stay after that long long journey!!
It is always good to receive feedback. We find our transatlantic guests may see the apartment as compact where perhaps Europeans are more used to city centre apartments being small but perfectly formed! The large built in wardrobe/closet was designed to open into the corridor making the most of the space to give a dressing room area and keep the bedroom clutter free. If you would like to see the layout just take a look at the photos for the floor plan. If you need more space we offer a 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom apartment in the same building, Emperors Apartment Riverside. Any queries ...do ask.. Here to help make booking your holiday as easy as possible.

“Priceless”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in the apartment for 5 days, and the apartment has everything you need, and Sheena makes your arrival very welcoming. The car parking is very secure as is the apartment. The location is within minutes of the town centre for sightseeing, shops, buses and restaurants. Just wished we had stayed longer. A perfect place to 'enjoy your stay.

“Perfect base for our York holiday”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much and found Sheena to be very helpful and thoughtful. The location is perfect to walk to the attractions of York and also an easy drive to surrounding areas such as Harrogate and Whitby. Great to have secure parking within the apartment complex. The apartment was light and airy and very comfortable and Sheena had provided quite a few extras to make us feel welcome.

“This flat is comfortable, convenient and well-appointed.”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The flat is in a very convenient but fairly quiet location, within easy reach of the city centre, and also of local shops and restaurants. It doesn't have a river outlook, but it has an attractive view over the gardens of the Middleton Hotel, which is just opposite. The owner thoughtfully provided numerous additional supplies such as tea and coffee, milk and orange juice and chocolate biscuits, She has done her best to think of everything, and we can certainly recommend this as a place to stay. It has the added benefit of private secure parking in the area beneath the building.
