"Absolutely brilliant"

We stayed in the apartment over Christmas and it was just wonderful. Maggie met us on arrival and showed us everything in the apartment. The apartment was centrally located - a 5 minute walk to the centre of York and it was absolutely immaculate. Maggie also provided some groceries and wine and chocolate which was a lovely touch. It was also very reasonably priced. The onsite parking was another added bonus. We would definitely stay again.
Thanks Maggie,
Kind regards,
Alison and Andy Salmon xx

Thank you choosing to spend Christmas at Emperors Wharf. Its really good to hear that you enjoyed the apartment as much as the Christmas festivities in beautiful York.
Thanks for your review. Maggie

"Very central, lovely hosts"

The apartment is in a great location to explore York and the secure parking was a bonus (would have been better if we had a small car as very tight). The living space was great - very comfortable. The… More

Thanks very much for your review and kind comments in our guest book.

I'm so sorry that you found it difficult to sleep. The bed is a standard double (4'6") with a brand new luxury mattress (Sept 14). Hopefully you found it comfortable, although rather smaller than the King-size that you're used to. Your comfort is our top priority and we will certainly consider this for future improvement.

We agree the location is ideal for enjoying the many attractions of this beautiful city. The traffic is one downside of being so central and unfortunately the noise can be intrusive at times. We find this is usually only a problem if the windows are open, as the area is usually quiet at night.

Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week in York. I hope you will consider returning in the future and it will be a pleasure to welcome you again.

Kind regards, Maggie

Thanks for your review. Pleased to hear you had such a brilliant weekend and enjoyed the wedding celebrations. Look forward to seeing you again soon, when perhaps you'll have more free time to enjoy the city.
