“Lovely little flat”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very nice, clean and comfortable. Very well equipped and nice to have bread and milk supplied. Good location as easy walk to centre. Having a parking space is a definite plus. However the bed may need a new mattress as woke each morning with a sore back.

Management Response

The whole flat was kitted out last year, so the bed and mattress (Warren Evans) are only 15 months old. We're sorry that you found the mattress uncomfortable. We'll make sure that it is turned regularly.

“ideal, well equipped place for a couple, 15 min easy walk from city centre”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Just returned from a 4 night stay here, stopped with my young daughter. Flat was very clean, equipped with everything you would need, & importantly both a comfy bed & sofa. Owner provides lots of helpful information & milk, tea, coffee, sugar & bread are all provided, which is a lovely touch. There is also a supply of cleaning materials, cooking oil, spices to use, which again is thoughtful, as it can be frustrating to buy something to only use a small amount. There is a parking space provided (invaluable in York) & is a pleasant walk along the river into the city (15 minutes with a reluctant 8 year old!) Flat was warm, cosy but not cramped & quiet, although not for you if stairs are a problem (1st floor flat up about 15 steps). We will definitely return next time we visit York, excellent value for money, thanks again.

“comfortable,spacious, well positioned and equiped, very helpful owner and house keeper”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This flat has everything. Walking distance to York centre but on and off street parking. Extremely well equipped - everything you could want even for a longer stay and we were there a week. Efficient heating and an owner and house keeper who were incredibly helpful when we turned up with one days notice due to a family emergency.

“Lovely comfortable flat - spotlessly clean”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at Foss Flat - great directions so no problems finding it and a warm welcome when we arrived with milk, bread and butter waiting for us. The flat was well equipped, exactly as described and spotlessly clean. With off road parking and a short 15 minute walk into the city centre, it was exactly what we needed as a base to see friends, family and for one of us to run the marathon. Certainly somewhere to go back to. Thank-you.

“Very Cozy”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at Foss Flat for 5 nights. Chris met us and showed us around and gave us the keys. She is a very delightful person and was very helpful, offering to drive us into town. The flat was very clean and well appointed. There is grocery shop just down the street for convenience purchases. There are larger groceries with in a mile or so, easily walkable for us. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this property for your stay in the York area.
