A lot of people have commented that once you enter the complex from the main streets of York city centre via the large electric double gates, peace and tranquility descends on you. After parking in your dedicated undercover spot in the car-park, it's a few steps to the apartment doors. This is where being on the ground floor really matters - there is no struggling up the stairs with your luggage or in a lift to gain access to the apartment and we are one of only 2 apartments in this block that has its own patio so you can sit outside rather than having to look through the windows.
The first thing you will notice is the Mediterranean feel about the apartment. The use of very large mirrors, the mirrored wall in the hall and a carpet free environment certainly gives this apartment the edge over the usual type of "holiday flats".
In the hall there is a large storage cupboard for your shoes, coats and suitcases and you will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of fitted wardrobes and drawers in the bedroom. A particular feature of the bedroom is the modern dressing table/desk - perfect for the business guest or just for putting your make up on!. It has great views of the gardens and patio. Again there is a large mirror in the bedroom and the floor is quality real wood and not laminated. The bed is King Size and has modern lights overhead which create the perfect ambiance.
The open plan lounge/kitchen is very modern and upmarket. The kitchen has quality integrated appliances (including a really cool pull out ironing board), a waste disposal unit, feature lighting below the gloss units and at floor level and a gorgeous corian work-surface/dining bar providing ample room to prepare and enjoy meals or have a coffee or a glass of wine maybe! The floor is tiled throughout in a cool and contemporary colour. In the lounge area the double doors open onto the large patio where you can enjoy a glass or two whilst admiring the well maintained communal gardens. The lounge has 2 leather sofas, a large glass coffee table, 40 inch TV with freeview and Blu Ray DVD player, free internet access and an amazing super size mirror which reflects the light this apartment enjoys. Being a modern apartment there is usually no need for extra heat but on a very cold day you will be pleased to know that each room has a slim modern electric wall heater that can be set to the temperature of your choosing.
The bathroom has a double size shower and quality fittings.
As you would expect from a high quality modern apartment complex there is a full fire protection system, secure electronic access, modern appliances and quality finish.
|Further details outdoors|
Walk out of the complex gates and you are on the river banks of the Ouse with a view of the famous King Arms pub just a few metres away on the opposite bank. Within a few minutes you are in the City centre shopping and entertainment area with its famous narrow cobbled streets, boutique shops, restaurants to suit all tastes and a vibrant vibe at nightfall. It is so good to have an easy stroll back to the apartment after a full day of shopping, sightseeing or a great night out. We find that people love the fact that you don't have to use a taxi and they have said that their car has remained unused for a whole week while they have discovered all that York has to offer within walking distance. In the streets behind the complex are numerous real ale pubs and quaint traditional houses or if you fancy some exercise try out the gym which is in the same street as the apartment (You can pay for short period membership and it includes a small pool).York is a city for cycling and a cycle path/walk leads along the river bank passing the beautiful Rowntree Park and onto the Millennium bridge, crossing over the river and bringing you back along the opposite bank with the Kings Arms pub situated at the end.
From outside the complex you are on to Micklegate Bridge over the River Ouse and then straight into the numerous shops/restaurants catering for every taste. A superb mix of traditional pubs, contemporary wine bars, cafes and live music venues.
If you want a relaxing night in there is a Tesco express, Budgens, Sainsbury local, wine shops, bakery shops, take aways in fact everything you need and can think of is available - again within easy walking distance.
We feel that this is the best location to be in in York and we have read that this is one of the most sought after and exclusive streets to own a property in the City.
The 40 inch TV has Freeview and there is a Blu Ray DVD player. There is a CD player with Ipod dock in the kitchen. There is a freezer section to the fridge. No hen or stag breaks.
The Yorkshire region
There is something here for everyone including walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts. Other pursuits include rock climbing, pot-holing, fishing, golf, pony trekking, sailing, canoeing, quad biking and even hand gliding.
The two National Parks, the North Yorks Moors and Yorkshire Dales are less than an hour away. Within the same time you can visit the rugged Yorkshire coast, Scarborough or Whitby. Or what about Castle Howard, Fountains Abbey or Harewood House, there is also the North Yorkshire Railway at Pickering giving spectacular views of the Heartbeat Country.
A visit to North Yorkshire isn't complete without seeing and experiencing the raw beauty of the North York Moors. The road across the moors is considered to be one of Britain's best drives.
Beyond the Moors the draw of the North Yorkshire coast offers great variety in seaside attraction. From the endearing Robin Hoods Bay, the haunting yet very agreeable town of Whitby and the more self-assured resort of Scarborough. These coastal destinations are enjoying a new renaissance as domestic (and overseas visitors) are rediscovering the pleasures of the British seaside.
Castles, abbeys, grand houses, chocolate box villages, thriving market towns the list of things to see and enjoy during your stay in North Yorkshire is endless.
York is the place to visit for all its historic features including York Minster and tourist attractions such as the Jorvic Viking Centre, Bettys Tea Rooms, The Shambles, National Railway Museum, Cliffords Tower and York Racecourse.
There are numerous festivals throughout the year and the city centre is alive with restaurants, shops, cinemas, theatre, street entertainers, markets and of course the many trips along the river Ouse. No matter what time of year you visit there is always something for everyone in York.

"Great Apartment in York City Centre"
Right in the middle of York City Centre, this apartment is ideal for getting out and about without using your car. The apartment is spacious, clean and has everything you need including a patio area and secure parking space. The meet and greet worked well, we were unpacked and out exploring in no time! There are plenty of attractions, restaurants, shops all within walking distance. We have only seen a small part of this beautiful City and plan to return to York and the apartment in the near future.
Thank for your review. It's good to know that you liked the "meet and greet" service we provide - we feel it is much better than picking up a key and having to sort out everything yourself on arrival. We would love you to stay again when you come back to finish off seeing the rest of wonderful York!

"Great apartment, perfect location!"
The location is simply ideal, especially as it includes a parking space, we didn't need to use our car the whole time we were there-fantastic! It also was literally a few minutes walk from nearly all the attractions, we even got last minute Barbican tickets and could even easily walk there! The apartment is really spacious with lots of storage space and general space for putting your bits and bobs. It is modern and really well finished, nice to have the private area out front to sit with a mulled wine on an evening :) Highly recommend it for both the apartment and the location, we had a brilliant time!
Wow! what a great review - thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed the apartment, its location and your time in York, hope to see you again.

"Going back next year"
This is my second year at the apartment & will book again next year. The owners have been very pleasant & helpful on both occasions Easy to access, 10 minute stroll from the station, secluded & in a very central position. The apartment is roomy & has everything you need. The little patio garden is a distinct plus, especially as the weather was so pleasant on our last visit
Thank you for your review and also for staying at our apartment for the 2nd time. It is wonderful to know that you would like to stay again next year and that you enjoyed the peace and quiet of the apartment whilst still being in York centre. We look forward to seeing you again!

"Best apartment we ever stayed in."
From the advert when I booked I thought this apartment was going to be good but it was even better than I expected. All mod cons were there and the decor was lovely. The secure parking was great and the gardens which were just outside our back door were gorgeous. We were right in the centre of York and close to everything. If I was going back to York I would certainly book this apartment again. No complaints at all. Loved every minute. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Wow! what a wonderful review. The apartment is very special to us and to know that our guests enjoy it as much as we do is lovely. I'm glad you had such a great time!

"Convenient and secure with all mod cons!"
We were able to arrange an early arrival which was a great bonus. The apartment has secure gates which lead onto a carpark and the entrance to the flat. The apartment was spacious. Towels were provided although a set each would have been nice. Kitchen well equipped for cooking basic meals. Bring your own tea, coffee and milk! Hairdryer provided. Very close to centre. Tesco close to hand for supplies.
Many thanks for your review - having the shops very close by is certainly a bonus - glad you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again!

"Great apartment, great location"
We spent a week in York and this apartment was perfect for our needs. It is inside the city walls and a stone throw away from all the main York attractions. The apartment is beautifully decorated and modern, with a little courtyard for sitting outside with a glass of wine when the weather is good. There is wi-fi, a good sized kitchen and the complex is gated too. We had a fab week - super weather, far too many cakes and cocktails! Highlights included afternoon tea at Betty's tea rooms, Yorkminster and the walk up its fab tower, Castle Howard and using the city walls to get from A to B. Thanks to Carol Cadman for her efficiency when booking the flat - it's a wonderful holiday let.
Thank you for a wonderful review. Besides the great location of the apartment I believe that good customer service is paramount so it is really nice to receive your compliment. So glad you enjoyed wonderful York!

"ideally placed in the centre of York"
If it were possible, I would give this apartment four and a half stars. Its first quality is it is placed right in the centre of York with all its pubs, restaurants and shopping, and also close to the station. It is in a gated complex with an allocated space for one's car, so security is first class. The living room is much wider than shown in the pictures, attractively decorated, nice furniture and and a decently stocked kitchen. We ate mostly at home and found it very easy to self-cater. The bedroom was very comfortable with plenty of storage space. The outdoor patio was great in the hot weather but it can be a bit noisy from youngsters in the gardens and it is situated next to the main entrance door to the block - although you do get to know your neighbours very quickly. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. If/when we return to York, we will want to stay here again.
Hi Thank you for your great review - it is always so nice to hear that guests would return and stay in the apartment again. We look forward to seeing you in the future!

"It was a clean, comfortable, welcoming home away from home."
This York apartment is nicely furnished and maintained. The kitchen is comfortably equipped enough to host a family dinner with a few courses. The living room has French doors that open to a lovely patio (with a bistro table perfect for breakfast) that looks into a lavish garden. The instructions for the washer/dryer, dishwasher and other appliances are easy to find and follow. We felt at home right away. (The washer/dryer was important to the success and comfort of our trip b'c we had packer carry-on bags for an extended vacation of 21 days.)
Thanks for your great review. Having the outside space overlooking the gardens is great and I'm glad you were able to enjoy your breakfast there! Hope to see you again for your next visit to York.

"Excellent....I will come back"
The flat was perfect in every way possible : clean, light and airy, comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful view over a garden. The area is calm. We will come back for sure!
Thank you for your positive review. Finding calm in the middle of York was very important to us and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay so much. We look forward to you staying at the apartment again next year!

"Excellent Apartment in Great Location"
A very smart apartment in a great location- 5 minutes walk into the centre of York. Very good welcome. Comfortable and clean. Why bother with a hotel at these rates?!
Hi Thanks for your very positive review - especially the comment about why pay for a hotel! It was a pleasure to have you stay at our apartment and we hope to see you again soon. Carol
