family weekend in York

  • 3 of 5

Fabulous location in York and plenty of room for our family get together.

Cleanliness in the apartment was disappointing. The oven was not clean and the lack of oven gloves made use of a hot oven dangerous. Our main concern was the toilets. One of the bathrooms had a very unpleasant smell and the toilets were very dirty beneath the rim. Use of the toilet brushes was not an option as they were absolutely FILTHY. When I raised this issue with the "fixer" of our let, they were in denial and therefore very unhelpful. Why can people not own up to their shortcomings.

The photo of the accommodation was slightly misleading.

It was an expensive let and should not have been lacking high standards.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We take feedback seriously and always look into and respond to matters ASAP. We do feel it is also important to add when guests do not post accurate fully reviews and have to correct a few matters: - the company is Stay in York, not 'fixer' as mentioned. - the issues the guest brought up were dealt with immediately not ignored as stated. We visited her on the day after arrival.The cleaning she mentioned was only mentioned after she left. At no point during her stay did the mention that to our staff. If so we could have looked into that to ensure she was happy. - we did not ignore the request, quite the opposite, we visited immediately on complaint and went down again after we received the guests comments. All other 'issues' this guest had were in fact not issues at all, such as the washer not working, hot water but user error etc. - the photos give an accurate representation of the proprerty, they are in no way inaccurate as per the Marketing Descriptions Act. Again no other guest in 4 years has ever mentioned this or said this is a problem because it isnt. Several of our staff had contact with this guest and felt that no matter what we did she was not going to be happy. We do wish she had contacted us during her stay if she felt so strongly rather than posting a negative review which really doesnt achieve anything for either of us. Stay in York

The location was amazing and the views of the Minster and grounds were stunning

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay celebrating my friends 50th birthday. The apartment was well equipped and the bedrooms were spacious. The kitchen and lounge area were a little cramped at times but more than acceptable. The photograph of the property is a bit misleading as you are basically staying above the owners on the 2nd floor apartment which was accessed through the back entrance. Thankful for the 3 parking spaces given the central location but bit of a trek with suitcases etc and then 4 flights of stairs to cope with before you reach the accommodation.

Slight problem on the first morning as only 4 out of 7 of us had a hot shower. Reported the situation and it was quickly rectified which was much appreciated. Overall had a great time, would happily stay there again and would recommend.

Gorgeous apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was amazing and exceeded our expectations. It's in such a fantastic location and is very well equipped.

There are a fair few stairs to get to the apartment but that wasn't a problem.

It was also really handy to have free parking at accommodation but most of our party got the train as it was a 5-10 minute walk from the station.

There is everything you might need within a 5 minute walk, including a small sainsburys just around the corner.

We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Thank you.

Stunning apartment overlooking York Minster.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment in walking distance of all local amenities. We arrived by train and walked with our luggage to the apartment as it was only 10 minutes away. It is centrally located for all local amenties but set in a quiet residential area. Views of York Minster from bedroom and lounge windows. Definitely one to return to. Be warned though, there are three sets of steep stairs to reach the apartment, well worth the climb in our opinion but not suitable for everyone.

Amazing location and view!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fully upgraded with five large comfortable bedrooms and four modern bathrooms. The kitchen also had everything we needed for a great weekend stay. The Wi-Fi worked well. Access to the apartment was by a long steep stairway but we were able to get even our heaviest bag up the stairs. And it was well worth it for the view - the Minster was right outside the window with a small pretty park below. Yorkshire Holiday Homes made the whole transaction easy.
