Emperors Wharf Apartment
About the home
This luxury apartment has everything you need to enjoy your holiday in York. Fine furnishings and contemporary design throughout with Egyptian cotton bedlinen, hand made mattress and a choice of goosedown or non-allergic bedding. All the best of a hotel suite with total privacy and the freedom to do everything in your own time.
On arrival you will find the kitchen has all the fridge basics plus drinks, treats, teas, coffees, chocolate biscuits and all the kitchen products you may need. No need to bring any extra household supplies as we provide spares of everything. In the bathroom there are indulgent soaps, lots of soft towels, loo rolls and plenty of hot water.
You have a choice of fabulous restaurants for all budgets within a few minutes walk but the modern kitchen is fully equipped if you prefer to self-cater. There are two sofas as we reckon one doesn't give you enough space to stretch out and unwind. For a quiet evening in you can relax with the TV/DVD/CD and a choice of books, magazines, music and films.

As seasoned travellers we have stayed in many apartments in many parts of the world in our time. We have enjoyed great hospitality and great accommodation but never better than both the welcome and... more

My wife and I stayed over a long weekend for our first visit to York and were extremely pleased with the apartment. It was clean, comfortable and warm - important given the weather at the time! Kitted out with a stocked fridge and sweet goodies for walks (not much left at the end of our stay!).
We had a small problem with wi-fi signal, but Sheena couldn't have been more helpful and sorted us out.
York was well worth the trip with much to see and do. We had planned to tour some of the surrounding countryside, but between the City attractions and the cosy apartment, we didn't venture far. A good excuse for a return visit!
Thank you very much for your review. Really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay so much. It was my pleasure to be able to assist with the WiFi connection. Happy to do same again any time you can make it back to York... and next visit we will make sure there are extra sweets for your coat pockets so you don't run out!

Emperors Wharf was a really lovely apartment and furnished to a very high standard. We especially appreciated the warm personal welcome and all the thoughtful extras provided.
Thanks so much for the lovely review. Really appreciate you enjoyed all the things that we think are important too! Great to hear from you...and thank you
