Sandra Depledge Winner 2014 'Certificate of Excellence' Tripadvisor. This impressive period property is on the very doorstep of all that is interesting and exciting about York, you could not be better placed for a perfect city break. The area of Monkgate is a very upmarket residential area very close to York Minster and the city walls. Details of the exact address are available on request. The rooms are, spacious (much larger than they appear in the photographs) and light, and are furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There are two double bedrooms with double beds, one is en suit also an office/3rd bedroom with double bed, (used as an alternative to the mezzanine bedroom if preferred), a lounge,a family bathroom,a kitchen diner and a large hallway leading to the two mezzanines upstairs (one has the lounge and the other the second bedroom) both mezzanines are private from each other. This beautiful converted Victorian hospital has great character, it is also set back from the road and therefore there is no road or street noise, very quiet. The gated car park is at the front of the building and free. From the apartment window, which is second (top) floor you have a view across the city, we are so close to the main area of the town. I am sure you will not be disappointed with this fabulous apartment in this very central location.

Further details indoors

This is a lovely quiet flat on the second (top) floor of a four storey building. It has a view of York minster and the city centre. As you walk through the door you walk into a light and carpeted hallway, to your left is the new bathroom, straight ahead the downstairs bedroom, to your right a doorway to the kitchen and dining area and then the stairs leading in two directions, one to the mezzanine bedroom and the other to the mezzanine lounge. The apartment is very light as it has two long windows about ten foot long which bring light to both floors. The apartment is very cosy and warm and has all that you would need for your stay. I have lived there myself and have made it very comfortable. The second floor of this building is mainly occupied by business people for second homes or retirement. You will have no noise from the street or noisy neighbors.

"Stunning apartment in a great location"

The apartment is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a good old catch up, including a central location, a well equipped kitchen, and a sweet mezzanine snug with easy chairs and a sofa. Sandra was helpful throughout the booking process and was on hand to show us around on arrival. York is a lovely city with great places to eat and drink and a good range of shops for a bit of retail therapy. All in all, the perfect choice for a girls' get together!

Immaculate apartment, warm, bright, plenty of room for four people, yet cosy. Five minutes walk to York City Centre. Perfect for a long weekend break.

"wonderful central appartment"

Like so many other reviewers, we found the apartment perfect - everything was walkable from it, including the huge Sainsbury's. Well equipped, warm, comfortable, beautifully decorated. Often when we stay in holiday lets we say 'well, we're not buying it, we're just renting it for a week', but this one I would actually love to own!

It was great to have double beds in all three rooms, and two bathrooms with loads of hot water.

We had a great stay and will definitely go again.
