“Spotless apartment, perfect location!”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Highly recommended for couples or small families- a perfect apartment, very clean and tidy with everything you could need included. Children said the sofa beds were comfy, and I can vouch for the extremely comfortable and very large bed..we struggled to get up every morning! Location absolutely perfect- very near all the shops, museums and landmarks, no need to use a car unless you wish to go exploring outside of the city. Lynne was friendly and helpful but mostly left us to it, and we had a fantastic time. Cannot think of anything that could improve this place- you won't be disappointed!

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lynne was really lovely to deal with. Very helpful and felt like a friend, with her helpful advice.
The place was great in every way. The location was just outside the city walls and was Impeccably clean. Lots of fresh, clean white linen and towels. Modern, wooden floors and very comfortable king size bed and 2 single beds made up from sofas. Can't recommend the place enough.

Thank you for your very positive comments. It was really good to hear all your plans for the trip and just a pity we never got to meet in person. Maybe next time!

“Absolutely Perfect.... Actually fabulous”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lynne was present to greet us and show us around the apartment located just under their home. The place was quiet, roomy, and well appointed with every amenity and need waiting for us. Even coffee, creamer, sugar and maker for us. The electronic fireplace added evening atmosphere. The bed was the best of a 24 day trip !! Lynne had "fizz" (Champaign) chilled for us and other snacks. The largest towels ever. On and on, they seems to have thought of everything. She provided plenty of tips and suggestions and even has a book detailing a walking tour of the alley's the locals use to avoid the crowds. The apartment is located about half a block from the city walls and Roman gate and as close to the Minster as you can get. Easy access to everything....a small grocery around the corner. Lynne and Mike have gone the extra mile to provide a lovely, comfortable place you'll feel right at home in. It's perfect for a visit to York and we highly recommend visiting York !! In September the weather was great and tourist crowds minimal. We hit a home run on this one and made good friends. Lynne sent us home with a vey nice print of The Shambles that is now displayed our home. We travel a lot, from semi rustic to luxurious, and this one is highly recommended !!

Oh my goodness, what lovely things you said about the apartment. Thank you. We hear about "mean" owners who do not provide amenities and we did not want to be like that so your response was greatly appreciated! Hope everyone does not expect a picture of the Shambles - it just so happened that we acquired a duplicate during your visit and you were the lucky recipient! Delighted you had such a great time.

“The prefect place to stay”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A superb base from which to explore the wonders of York. Only five minutes walk to the minister and the city centre. We loved to return to the comforts of this beautifully fitted and equipped flat which is five star in every regard. The helpful yet unobrusive interest of the owner Lynne and her husband were much appreciated. We cannot recommend it too highly.

“Great accommodation & great location”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in this very clean & modern 1 bedroom apartment with our 2 children. You couldn't get any better than this. What you see on internet is exactly what apartment is like. Shops, resturants & pub on your door step. Plenty for kids to do & everything within walking distance.
