"Perfect location, lovely owners."

The apartment was perfectly located on the south side of the river being just a 5 minute walk from the city center but away from the louder bars. The apartment was perfect for us and met all our needs… More

"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
