Winner 2014 Tripadvisor 'Certificate of Excellence' 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, a lounge, family bathroom, kitchen diner and a hallway leading to the two mezzanines upstairs (one has the lounge and the other the second bedroom). 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 car park is and gated and free. From the apartment window you have a view of York Minster, we are so close to the main area of the town. I am sure you will not be disappointed with this 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.

The weather is cool in the autumn, coat needed from September onwards, hat and scarfe needed December to March, light outerwear end of March to end of May , T shirts with possible light mac or cardigan June to end of September.

A city steeped in History with the Romans, Saxons, and Vikings all leaving their architectural mark on the medieval city.

"High Class Living in the Heart of York"

We had a wonderful stay in York in the city centre apartment. Everything from booking online to arriving to the estate went smoothly. I definitely recommend the apartment. The location is superb with the city centre and the supermarkets only a few steps away.

"Beautiful, central apartment with mezzanine , close to Yorkminster"

Very comfortable apartment, plenty space and space for older son to have privacy with the layout of mezzanine upstairs. TV in kitchen and living room. Wi-fi available- a must for most nowadays. Have stayed in another apartment in building and both are lovely with their own characteristics. Milk, coffee and tea in apartment for arrival. Parking in gated car park, which is brilliant and vehicle very safe. Close to Yorkminster, pubs, Indian nearby and all shops 2 mins away. Brilliant location.

"Fab accommodation which all the family appreciated!"

Lovely accommodation in an ideal location. It certainly ticked all the boxes for myself, husband and daughter and the grandchildren loved the novelty of split level living! Sandra gave us a great welcome so that we were quickly able to get to grips with all the essentials and get on with enjoying the sights of York. Two little boys will have great memories to look back on and the evening ghost walk was just the icing on the cake for them both.

Had a lovely weekend away with hubby and our friends. The appartment had everything we needed and more, we were able to sit back and relax in the home comforts. The apartments querky layout was very different but lovely a brilliant talking point with family when we returned home. It's location was just perfect with everything in a stones throw. It was truley an amazing weekend, highly recommend to anyone. Sandra the owner is a very friendly lady was a pleasure to meet, nothing was too much trouble, always quick to answer any emails. Cant wait visit again.

"High Standard as usual"

We have stayed several times at both Sandra's lovely apartments, they are so comfortable, homely, clean and have everything you need. They are located in an ideal spot only 3 minutes walk away from the main attractions namely the Shambles/Minster. We will continue to visit again hopefully very soon. Thanks again Sandra.

"Just Ideal"

Conveniently located, excellently equipped and presented and met our needs perfectly. Outstanding support from the owner through a booking process complicated by distance factors (Australia). Help received through some flexibility in the check in process was also much appreciated. We would very much like to return to the apartment in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

"Wonderful location"

A very comfortable flat in a wonderful location. A few minutes walk from a large Sainsbury's and within very easy walking distance of the the Minster and the main shopping areas of the old city.

"Exellent apartment"

This is the second time we have stayed at this apartment, both times it was lovely, clean and modern. Good access into the centre of York. Sandra made the booking easy and always gets back to any enquiries straight away. We had a really great break.

"Fab apartment - 2nd visit"

This was our second visit and it was just as great this time. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and modern. It is so easy to book the apartment and we wanted to stay an extra night at the last minute which was sorted really easily. The apartment is so near the city walls, it is really convenient for sightseeing and shopping, as well as pubs and restaurants and the parking space is a definite bonus. On our next visit to York, we will definitely stay here (again). If you like a curry, then we recommend the Viceroy restaurant just round the corner from the apartment on Monkgate and if you like steak, there is an absolutely brilliant Argentinian steak house called El Goucho on Walmgate.

"Excellent appartment, ideal location"

We have stayed now three times in this apartment and it never disappoints us. The standard of decor and facilities offered are of an extremely high standard and we always look forward to staying here. The location is ideal for trips into York, being only a few miniutes walk away from the city and an ideal base for trips further out. Thouroughly recomended it and look forward to returning again shortly.
