Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in York and the apartment played a big part in this, of course, the shady courtyard was much appreciated! I was wondering if it is possible to book for 3 nights for about the same time next year?

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved this property. It had all the comforts of home. Very clean, spacious and full of thoughtful ideas from books, games, tourist books, coffee, creamer etc. We didn't want to leave.

Lovely self contained flat

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. We stayed in the two bedroom ground floor unit. This flat had access to the bbq and patio in back. Jill was quick to respond to my inquiry about the flat right from the start and always prompt with any questions I had before we arrived. We found the entry instructions easy. Location was fantastic with just a short walk to Monkbar and the centre of York. The flat was clean, and had everything we needed for our week stay.

Beds were very comfortable. The only issue we had which was not at all the fault of the owner, was the neighbour to the back of the apartments. He was very noisy a couple of days in a row non-stop loud music and drunken behaviour. We considered calling the police, but luckily with the window shut and fan on in our bedroom we didn't hear him. It did make it hard to sit outside in the patio area during the day though. Hopefully this was a one off weekend bender for the dude. Overall, we loved it and would stay again, for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on our York Holiday Apartment. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and your visit to York, and Im very grateful for the positive comments you have made regarding the apartment, the booking process and the customer service that we provided. With regard to the noise you experienced, I have spoken to the landlord of the property nearby and have been assured that this was entirely a one off occasion, brought about by their tenant having a leaving party, so I am comforted that going forward this will not recurr. I can only apologise that you experienced this and wish that you had contacted me at the time to discuss any issues so we could have nipped it in the bud immediately. Please be assured that we have been open for two years now and we had many happy guests staying time and time again at the apartments. We have only had this one issue with noise, so firmly believe that the issue is a one off occurence. Overall, I'm so glad you loved the apartment and that you had everything you needed for your visit to York. The location is second to none, and we have tried to incorporate everything into our apartments to make our guests' stay absolutely perfect! Once again, thank you for your review, I am so happy that you have given us 5 star rating for our apartment and for your visit to York.

Great apartment. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday in this apartment. It is lovely, clean and homely, yet modern with wifi and bluray. It has everything you need and all good quality. The apartment is just a coupe of minutes walk from all the attractions in York. The owner is easily contactable and very pleasant and helpful. We would recommend this apartment and will look forward to staying again

Week's stay July 2011

  • 5 of 5

Location could not be better. Criss crossed the city going through Monk Bar gate many times during our stay. On arrival our taxi driver dropped us at the wrong car park, even though we showed him the printed out directions but we just walked up the road a little. Both Sainsbury's(closes at 8) and Morrisons(at 10) are easily walkable distances. Very well equipped, we did cook only thing I needed was a spatular for the frying pan. Comfy beds and sofas. Wi Fi worked very fast. Would recommend highly to friends. Thank you and good luck.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great comments. The apartments are very new, so every positive review matters so much to us. I agree with your comments on the location of the apartments, they are so close to the city centre, its so easy to pop in for coffee and refreshments during a busy day sightseeing or shopping. We did have a spatula for the frying pan, but perhaps I need to keep a couple 'in stock'!! I will organise this immediately! Thanks for the tip off! I really hope we see you again soon!! Many thanks Jill

Practically Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the two bedroomed apartment for 5 nights. We found the flat following the directions given without problem. The flat was decorated to a very high standard, and was very clean and well maintained. We had occasion to speak (unwittingly) to the owner who was very pleasant and helpful. We had a lovely relaxing time and found the location of the flat to be just perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending this flat to family and friends.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a super time at the apartment, and its good to hear my instructions and directions were easy to follow (directions aren't usually my forte!) We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the apartments as this is so important to everyone staying away from home, so its lovely to hear that you found the apartment so beautifully clean. I hope you visit again soon, and thanks for your wonderful review!

Minster's reach review

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable, well equipped apartment with good quality furnishings. With places like this I can't believe anyone would spend the money on a hotel! It was perfect for a family to stay and the sofa bed was very comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to book this again if I were visiting York. Yes, the parking's a pain, but it is everywhere in York, so that shouldn't be a deciding factor. A lovely apartment in a great location. Thanks.
