Getting around

York plays host to a full calendar of events. Year round you’ll find street entertainment, concerts, historical re-enactments, York racing events, entertaining guided walks, ghost tours, and boat trips on the River Ouse, the Christmas market is also a real treat. Most sight seeing can be easily done on foot or from the top deck of one of Yorks double-decker tour buses. York has a vibrant café culture, it also has stylish riverside wine bars and old fashioned pubs and taverns serving local ales. York even has its own brewery within the City Walls. If you prefer afternoon tea you will not be disappointed, a visit to the world famous Betty’s Tea Rooms is a must! You’ll be spoilt for choice with world class fine food restaurants.

“[--] Postern Close”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2017

Great location right on the edge of the City so easy to walk in. Very comfortable apartment and very well equipped with plenty of storage. Slight downside is that the apartment is a little jaded but maybe that's because it's frequently in use. Caretaker Chris was extremely helpful and welcoming.

Owner's reply: Hello Alison. Many thanks for your review and good to know that you found the apartment comfortable. I have contacted you directly regarding your comments so that we can understand and rectify any issues. Warm wishes and Merry Christmas! Rachael & Rob

“Home from home”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2016

Hi Rachael, Just to let you know what a fab time time we had in your Apartment at the end of March. From our initial contact with yourself and to Ray who greeted us we felt it was like home from home .A great position for walks into the centre and to the shops on Bishy Road and a bonus to leave the Car in the garage without having to find parking spaces all of which made for a very relaxing time. Very nice to arrive at a place to find everything as shown on your website to be "as it says on the package" Perfect!! Thanks also for the welcome pack very much appreciated. No doubt this will not be the last time we stay in what can only be described as a "gem" of a place. Best Wishes Ann and Brian

Owner's reply: Hello Ann & Brian Thank you so much for your review and really good to know that you felt at home. Glad you managed to fit so much in to your short break too. Look forward to speaking to you again, i enjoyed our long chat. Very best wishes, Rachael & Rob

“Excellent stay”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2016

Booked a ver last minute trip and was lucky to find this apartment.. The location is great, a few minutes walk to Bishopthorpe Road with shops and a few minutes walk over the bridge to the Castle Museum , Clifford's Tower and River cruise. The museum is really worth a visit. Then just a few minutes more to the edge of the centre. Could easily access everything and pops back to the apartment for refreshments if required. The apartment was lovely, felt very comfortable, warm and cosy. Lots of little touches like books, games, CDs, DVDs, to make you feel more at home. Wine, biscuits, milk, tea, coffee and sugar. Lots of stuff in the kitchen if you wanted to cook, everything you could need. Beds were really comfy, pillows were the best, emailed owner to see what they are so I can get some. Loads of wardrobe space and a hairdryer ( only mentioned this because I wasn't sure and took one) . Balcony was long with 2 tables and chairs and nice to sit out although weather wasn't ideal for it. Parking pass given and Garage space under apartment, although didn't need it as we travelled by train. Two bikes are also available, to use, wish we could have as so close to lovely river walks where you can cycle but seat was a bit too high for my teenage son. Really nice addition though. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for location and comfort. Had a lovely last minute break and the owner was so helpful in organising it for me.

Owner's reply: Thanks very much Jeanette for your feedback, really glad you enjoyed yourselves. We will look at providing some sort of bike spanner/ tool for adjusting the seat height (thanks for mentioning that). I've emailed details about the pillows - hope you manage to find them! Many thanks again. Very best wishes Rachael & Rob

“Perfect weekend break”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2016

The Apartment in York was exactly what we were hoping for. An easy walk from the station and the center of town, comfortable and clean with a good shower and a modern kitchen. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your feedback, great to know that you and your friends enjoyed your stay. Our best wishes to you all. Rachael & Rob

A lovely experience from my first enquiry to the very end. The owners and manager have been incredibly helpful and made everything very easy. The apartment is in a quiet, lovely complex by the river and only a short walk from York city centre. We were met by Chris, the manager, and he made sure we had all the information we needed and was on hand all weekend should we have needed him. The apartment itself was well maintained and sparkling clean, comfy beds, a super powerful shower, well equipped kitchen great living room with comfortable sofas, dining table and TV with lots of channels and DVDs provided and useful balcony. Only one tiny down point is that the shower is fed from a tank so you will need to get the water boost on if more than one of you wants a hot shower. We managed one and a half short ones the first day! I will definitely be returning.

Owner's reply: Hi Samantha Thanks so much for your great review and glad to know that you found our place comfortable. Hope that you managed to see and do everything you wanted to in York. Very glad to know that you'll be returning - we look forward to hearing from you. Have a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year in the meantime. Best wishes Rachael & Rob

“Perfectly located for a family to enjoy an exploring holiday in York.”

A lovely clean flat. Very close to town and attractions. Good variety of attractions and activities within walking distance. No need for a car to explore.

“Even better than last year”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2014

Ever since our first stay in the Apartment in York (March 2013) we have been looking forward to going back. This year we arrived on Good Friday and were so pleased to find that nothing had changed. Actually, that's not quite true because the owners, Rachael and Rob, have made some improvements to "furniture and fittings" that reflect their commitment to offering a great holiday experience in a wonderful city. The Apartment is spotless and fully equipped and the Housekeeper, Chris, is extremely helpful. Look no further if you're seeking super self catering accommodation with private garage parking in York - you won't be disappointed.

Owner's reply: Hello - thank you so much for your review and great to know that you had another lovely stay in York. Yes we've made a few improvements recently - new carpets, new TV and a bit of decorating to keep things fresh. And, we agree that Chris is great - he's been looking after our place and our guests for 7 years now, we consider ourselves very lucky to have him. Hope to hear from you again - our very best wishes, Rachael & Rob

“Comfortable accommodation and perfect location for a visit to York”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2014

We found the apartment very comfortable and had everything to hand that we needed during our visit. The location down by the river was ideal for walking and jogging as well as being handy for the nearby shops, cafes and pubs. The short walk into the centre was also very convenient and we just needed to cross the road to get onto the closest section of the city walls. A most enjoyable stay.

“You won't find better anywhere in York”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2013

If you're looking for a quality self catering break in York then you won't find anywhere better than "The Apartment in York." I can say this after sampling numerous flats and apartments in the City over the last 25 years. The accommodation including rooms, furniture, crockery and linen is spotless and the whole feel is modern, light and airy. The location, close to the river bank and with access to the Walls, is incomparable and there are several different routes to walk into the City Centre which take only 10 minutes. The garage under the property is a huge advantage and our car had its own holiday, not moving from one Friday to the next. The whole transaction from booking to when we picked up the keys was handled both pleasantly and professionally and I would like to thank the owners Rob and Rachael and their Housekeeper Chris for their excellent efforts on our behalf.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your glowing review. Delighted to know that your enjoyed your break in York and found the apartment comfortable. We hope to hear from you again. In the meantime - our Best wishes and Happy Easter! from Rachael & Rob

“Superb flat in a wonderful city”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2012

York is one of our favourite places and it deserves a property like this to savour its delights to the full. The flat is very comfortable, sophisticated and thoughtfully furnished by the very helpful owners. Its location is both peaceful and convenient for central York and is characterful as well as relaxing. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and much look forward to returning.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback and kind comments. Just picking up on your point about a washing machine - unfortunately we didn't have quite enough space in the kitchen to plumb one in. It was a toss-up between a mini dishwasher and washing machine or a decent sized dishwasher! We made the decision to go with the full sized dishwasher as felt it would get more use. However our housekeepers provide a collect and return wash/dry service - they charge about £7 per load currently for this service and the guests arranges this directly. The apartment does have ironing and airing facilities. Look forward to hearing from you again Best wishes Rachael & Rob
