A beautifully presented and fully equipped cottage within walking distance of York city centre. Didn't use the car at all during our stay which was lovely. Middlethorpe village just down the road with some great pubs serving very good food. Stunning surroundings, very tranquil. The cottage has been finished to a very high standard with so much attention to detail. You can see a lot of love went into the renovations and the owners should be very proud of what they have created there. Definitely one to make a return visit to and recommend to others.
This is a really amazing property. Very modern, clean, spacious with an absolutely stunning interior. We felt instantly comfortable and it really is home away from home. Lovely touches with the Alexa and such comfortable beds. It is less than a 5 minute walk into the town centre so accessible for all bars, restaurants, river trips, shops etc. You will not be disappointed when you stay here.
The apartment was fantastic, very high standard of finishing and appliances. Great location to walk into town.
We stayed for three nights across the bank holiday weekend, having previously lived in the centre of York a few years ago. This is a beautifully appointed house on probably the most exclusive street in York and is central to all that York has to offer whilst being very private. The only thing to be mindful of is that the Minster bells are loud and regular, but they stop for c 12 hours from 8pm. We’d be keen to stay again.
This is a great property which is very well maintained and run. Fully equipped of appliances and electronics, ideal for a short or long stay.
I cannot recommend the Residence enough. It’s absolutely stunning and the perfect location. Stays York were so helpful.
This was a lovely apartment and had all the amenities you require. The surrounding area is not great but the apartment itself is clean and tidy. The parking space was a bonus.
Lovely cottage within a short walk of the beach, handy for Whitby and local drives. Lovely facilities and walking on site.
Lovely apartment, very spacious and only minutes from the centre of York. Added bonus of having a supermarket on the doorstep.
Everything we needed was prepared for our stay. The location is perfect for exploring York’s History. The Walls, Museums and Gardens, The Art Gallery, beautiful old streets with unique shops and of course York Minster. The ArtHouse is a successful example of modernising a character property into a comfortable, relaxing and unique stay in the magnificent city of York.
Property was better than can be seen on the images. Location was perfect for a car free week. Parking was easy and secure. Comfort of the apartment was spot on and the standard very high. Everyone really enjoyed their stay.
This is one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in. It was immaculately clean and well equipped with everything you needed. Loved the extra touches, welcome pack of teabags, coffee, biscuits, milk and butter. Especially liked the prosecco we were given on New year's Eve. I would definitely recommend these cottages and we will definitely stay again. 5 mins from park and ride, and another 6 mins on the bus into York.
Located in the city centre in a really nice and quite area. Close to local shops. The apparent is modern it provides all the things you might need. The bathroom was huge!!
Brilliant apartment, clean and comfortable. Highly recommend and would definitely stay at the apartment again.
We had a great stay in the Tractor Shed at Brecks Farm. The cottage was in a great location , close to York city centre but also surrounded by lovely country side and within walking distance of a lovely village with shops and pubs. The cottage was beautifully decorated and Guy and Tracey were very welcoming.
Great cottage within hotel grounds so all the amenities of hotel bar and restaurant fully available….. comfy, cosy and clean cottage with great character and superb base for short walk to delightful Sandsend or the bustier Whitby….!!! Loved it and would stay again…. This time with our four legged family members to make use of the beach so close by….
We stayed in 'the parlour' which open plan, one level, with a garden looking onto the front field where we could see the owl in the evening, hares and a pheasant. The cottage is modern and the bed was big and comfy. Farm is a few minutes from a Tesco and retail park but it's so quiet you wouldn't know, and the park & ride for York is 5 minutes drive away. Spent time watching the ducks and ducklings at the pond, and the other wildlife. A lovely relaxing break, or breck.
Great stay new , location staff was so incredible book here Thank you AMANDA ,CHRIS MOLLY SHELLEY , HAD A BLAST
Absolutely gorgeous place to stay in a lovely area. We loved the projector screen and the views over the river. Thank you very much for having us.
Overly Satisfied with the Cottage. Tbh the pictures don’t do it any justice whatsoever, the decor in this place was second to none. Absolutely stunning. Quite possibly the best air BnB we have ever used. Hats off to the owner. Highly recommended, perfect location.
We absolutely loved staying at The Grand at Dukes Town House. It is so stylish, comfortable and well planned. From the crisp white sheets to the opulent bathroom, the clean lines of the kitchen and the panelling, it was relaxing and luxurious. A great advantage was the parking at Marygate car park close by and a short stroll to york centre. Fabulous location and place.
Perfect weekend get away. We stayed with our two children and they loved the place as much as we did. Great space, furnishings, history and ideally located between York and Wetherby. Would definitely recommend to friends and hope to stay again ourselves soon.
Thank you so much. It was amazing, the fresh flowers and wine was a real treat! Would definitely return.
The apartment is in an excellent location, is very tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Amenities are also good. The duvet was clearly excellent quality but was far too warm - a lighter one for summer months would be a good idea. There was a nespresso machine but no pods in the welcome pack. The welcome pack was insufficient for two breakfasts for two people (only 2 coffee bags and 2 sugars - had to buy extra) and would have expected fresh milk for this price. TV didn't work as per welcome pack instructions. Checkout time of 10am is a little early. Having said all of that, these...more
Second stay and as good as the first highly recommended. Location is second to none and parking place makes use of car so easy
We love this Little House. Dawn the owner is amazing - very helpful and kind. The house is very clean, comfortable, well equipped and a great location. The welcome " basket " and homemade cake was fantastic. Thank you for a great stay. Perfection !! See you again !
We were delighted with the accommodation at 30 Woodsmill Quay which had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend break. The apartment was spotless and the kitchen really well-equipped. We particularly enjoyed the fantastic views of the river with much to watch day and night! The location is only a short walk from the railway station and everything York has to offer.
The location was not easy to find by car initially, even with GPS, but once we got there all our expectations were met. It’s a short walk to town, quiet and yet very conveniently located if you want to drive out somewhere. Plus it has supermarkets across the road. The facility is very nicely done, blending the traditions of the building with modern furnishings. Overall, it’s lovely to be staying in a piece of York history.
The property was perfect, lovely furnishings, everything you would need, including a washing machine, location couldn’t be better, secure parking. I will definitely be booking this apartment again in future
Our first time in York and all I can say is wow what a place! Beautiful city with so much to see and do. The apartment is a stones throw from the Shambles, very well looked after, great decor and very clean. Would highly recommend staying here.
Had a great weekend at 42 Holgate Road for my son's birthday. Easy walking distance to the National Railway Museum which was our reason for the trip to York. House absolutely spotless, warm and well equipped, comfortable beds, couldn't ask for more. Credit to the house-keepers for doing such a good job on the cleaning. Had a major problem with the drainage (obviously a long term issue caused by the original plumber who renovated the property, and unfortunately it just happened to reach breaking point during our stay) but Stays York dealt with it very quickly and efficiently and sent a speciali...more
This is our second stay in the apartment. It is ideally located for York Minster,The Shambles,York Market and many other York attractions. It is kept warm by central heating and the facilities are all there,including cooker,kettle,toaster,fridge and even a dishwasher!!
The wardrove in this room is a bit small. It is a bit complicate to go in with so many codes. Furthernore, I did not receive them the firs day
We were blown away with the accommodation and location and could not fault anything even when we had a small issue with drains we contacted Bea who was resurring and communicated with us to put our minds at rest and the welcome pack was such high quality it was amazing.
Second time staying here. Great location, comfortable bright accommodation. Great outdoor space. All good.
Lovely property in a fantastic location - we had an issue with the bed albeit the owner sorted this very quickly . Only slight issue was that the beds were too soft for our tastes and as such sleep quality sufferred- apart from that could not fault it. Would highly recommend
One of the best holiday apartments I've ever stayed in, so clean and neat and just as described. The little welcome pack much appreciated.
Loved staying here, so close to cafe's, pubs, shops, tourist spots made everything so easy. The accommodation was just as described online and we would definitely book to stay here again when visiting York.
Lovely well maintained building even the lift is polite. You can't really go wrong with this accommodation everything is new and there's a welcome pack. Tesco is only 50m away and your right in the town nothing is more than a 15min walk and there are loads of restaurants and places to visit. Our only comment would be get a bigger sofa. After a day walking round a more comfortable one would be appreciated. Oh wifi password in document is wrong due to a capital letter issue. 5 stars definitely.
The cow kennel is stunning. The service is great and the views are spectacular. Was a home away from home for our wedding party.
Blue Bridge Court was a beautiful apartment. With everything you needed for a stay away from home. It was clean, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. 10mins walk into York City. What more can uou ask for. Only one thing I would add is, it needs a full length mirror. Other than that it was perfect for us.
Very comfortable and clean. Location great, quiet yet within walking distance of town and amenities. Will definitely stay here again
Great apartment, very comfortable and in a good location. Disabled access wasn’t good enough for guest in a wheelchair due to inadequate ramps. Parking permit to park near to apartment not available which was only disclosed after the booking was made. parking was at a public car park a distance from the apartment.
Beautifully presented and perfectly appointed home in a great location to access everything York has to offer.
This apartment was well located and in good condition. Despite being in a busy area, the windows were thick enough to keep out any noise from the street. My only gripes were lack of a shelf in the en suite shower and an electric bin lid that didn't work (batteries flat presumably?). Also pretty low on tableware and glasses if there are 4 staying (only 4 glasses, for example). Would book again without hesitation.
Stayed at Castle Chambers for 3 weeks The location was ideal - 5 mins from the City Centre and all attractions The apartment was well maintained and beds were comfy The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and appliances Would highly recommend staying here Suggestions 1. Wish there was a Dryer in the apartment as ours was a long stay 2. Essential supplies like salt & sugar could have been there ...
Apartment had own parking space and was 5 minutes walk from the shops/restaurants. The apartment was comfortable and quiet. We would recommend staying here. Beds were good quality. Thank you
What a wonderful place. The location is just brilliant. The view of the Minster is just amazing. The flat itself has everything you need. It is very comfortable and stylist. And it having secure parking right by the flat is a bonus. Especially with being in the centre of York. Just a wonderful place.
Mostly perfect my only suggestion would be to find a way of cooling the upper floors in high summer… otherwise a lovely experience all round.
It is exactly as shown in the pictures. It’s a brand new high end apartment and is well finished and furnished. We were visiting with our grown up son so was ideal to have the lounge area to socialise when we were in. Didn’t actually use the kitchen facilities at all but again were excellent if you needed them.
We loved the apartment It was comfortable and centrally located. I am already missing the views from upstairs. Stays York was very helpful with any questions and are close to the rental. I would certainly stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone else.
Very convenient, only 5 minute walk to York Minster. There is a small Sainsbury's shop at the end of the street for essentials. Apartment was excellent with everything you could need. Instructions for entry and also appliances were all easy to follow. Welcome gift bag was a nice surprise. Wall cupboards were quite high for me to reach but I am only 5 feet tall. Thankfully there was a footstool I could use in order to reach the shelf with the plates and cups. Two suggestions would be for the courtyard to be brushed and debris/weeds removed and for the floor underneath the bed to be swept pri...more
Amazing penthouse apartment with the best views of York! All mod cons, comfy furniture and beds. Feels like a luxury hotel with the comfort of your own home. Will definitely stay again!
Great little house close to the centre of York. Very clean and comfortable. Tasteful modern decor throughout. Would definitely return.
Really nice, right on the river, we had a small problem with the shower which we rang about and they got it fixed same day with no problem at all - can't ask for more than that really.
We had to extend our stay several days and the host was very accommodating. We would definitely stay there again!
Beautiful property with lovely furnishings and all essentials in kitchen. Great location to walk into York, car park a bonus for the location. A few negatives: uncomfortable bed, no towel rail in guest bathroom and insufficient storage in bedroom if staying longer than a couple of days particularly if more than 1 person.
A truly lovely apartment in an excellent secure location. It did get a bit hot in the bedroom as there is a skylight but leaving it open at night meant it was noisy. It was however immensely hot weather before we arrived and there are two tower fans that can be used. We had an issue where the shower didn't drain away and ended up sorting this out ourselves but we were reimbursed for the cost of the treatment we used. There were no washing machine instructions, nor instructions how to operate the blind in the bedroom but we managed to work these out and I have fed this back to Stays York. A...more
We loved this cozy flat. God location. Nice beds. Good kitchen and there was even a bottle of wine as a welcome gesture.
Our second visit to this well equipped and luxurious apartment. As delightful as ever. We did lots of day trips this time and being so close to public transport is such a benefit. Roll on visit number 3.
Right on the river front (ideal for people watching lol) so the views were lovely. We had 30 degree weather our full stay so the fans in the bedroom at night were a god send. We weren’t able to access Netflix on the bedroom tv like it said we could but the tv in the living room worked fine
Enjoyed my stay at 10 the tannery the flat was cosy comfortable and in a great location Thanks for a lovely stay
The house was very clean and comfortable for our family of 5 adults. It's been nicely renovated, located on a quiet street, and very convenient to historic York. Do note the 3rd bedroom is up a steep and narrow stairway. A wonderful house with comfortable beds. Small things...it would have been convenient to have a cutting board in the kitchen and soap in the 3 bathrooms. The staff was communicative and checkin was easy.
I was in York for work for 5 days, and the apartment made a pleasant alternative to a hotel. Very well equipped.
Great apartment, convenient for the centre, hamper was a good touch, would definitely stay here again.
I need space and the rooms are very spacious. Very nice apartment. I’m happy and I’ll be back. Thank you
Enjoyed the location, and having an allocated car parking spot was brilliant. Would stay here again.
Nice modern apartment in central area of York. Very convenient for shops, restaurants and theatres as well as transport links. Gated parking excellent as I was able to leave my car without any concerns for the entirety of my stay. Had a problem with the shower, quick response from Stays York staff and issue was rectified by the on call plumber.
Stayed at the Smithy for a week work trip and it couldn’t have been better. Felt like home away from home. The host went the extra thousand mile to welcome and make my stay that extra special. Highly recommended!
Very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Excellent location for local shops and a short walk into central York.
We had an amazing stay at HQ Penthouse! The apartment was fab for a a weekend getaway! Interiors were beautiful and fresh. Some lightbulbs missing from laps but that did not affect our stay! Location was amazing for taking strolls into the town centre and exploring what York has to offer! The terrace space added an extra space for relaxation and gathering your thoughts. Would highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a touch of Luxury!
Cosy apartment with all household stuff. Perfect location to City Centre and supermarket. Good view, enjoy looking at River Foss. Good hosts, respond quickly, help us a lot and super nice!
We have just returned from a wonderful week in this excellent accommodation. It isn't an overlarge property but is totally 5* in quality.It isn't just about the rooms, but who can complain about 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms with a decent size lounge and kitchen.It is the quantity of equipment provided for use.There was nothing we were short of and didn't need to keep washing up to be able to eat a meal.The cupboards were full of crockery and cutlery and everything to be able to self cater that you could want. It felt lovely and homely and is in a very safe block with wonderful views of York.Y...more
An Excellent apartment only a few minutes walk to the city. Spotlessly clean. Had a lovely wake up call with the geese taken flight in the mornings. Loved the place.
My daughter and I, enjoyed our stay in York. We were pleased with the Flat, everything we needed was available to us. We had trouble with the TV upon arrival. not sure how it worked. Once I contacted the office, someone was here within the hour, to help us. Appreciate how fast they came. Location of the flat was perfect, close to everything. They provided a Book, with instructions on everything we needed to know. Made it much easier. The only negative thing I have to point out. Is closing the front Door. We had to really slam it shut, in order for it to close. We must have bothered the neigh...more
A very late 3 day booking. Simple and comfortable little place in a really excellent location for exploring York on foot. Free parking outside property in quiet no through road despite its location was a real plus. Decor is modern and neutral The outside garden/courtyard area however is nothing more than a small narrow strip adjoining the kitchen and bathroom presumably all that's left after extending into the once garden, it was nice to be able to open the door to this area to let the fresh air in but its not a place to enjoyably sit out in really. 3 or 4 min walk to a supermarket for ...more
This apartment is in a great location within the city walls and near to all the attractions. It is exactly as it appears in the pictures. I have no complaints. Loved that there was an M&S right across the street. Would definitely stay there again.
This one bedroom apartment is well furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay, it's within easy walking distance of the local supermarkets, restaurants and pubs and is ideally located for exploring York.
Lovely property on a very quiet street, but only a 5 minute walk from the town centre. The spec was really high, lovely plush carpets upstairs, and the bathroom and kitchen were better than at home! Lovely little gifts on arrival and nice touches, like having coffee, milk etc. We had one minor problem, resolved by text message within minutes.
The apartment is in an ideal location for walking to local sights and fabulous bar and restaurants. Very comfortable and clean accommodation, felt like a home from home. Would recommend as a place to stay in York
Very comfortable even if access arrangements were complex. Shower cubicle needs a new gasket to avoid flooding.
We stayed when it was 30 degrees most days with our dog. There is a huge skylight in the living room which was great but made the room extremely hot. We kept the patio doors open but there wasn’t any breeze so we had to go out and buy a fan. The place was lovely with all kitchen utensils and a lovely welcome pack but there were quite a few spiders around the property, I counted 5. Mainly in corners of the room where the lamp was and by the washing machine and in the bathroom. The other minor down fall was we had really inconsiderate neighbours, I’m not sure if there property was also a rente...more
Enjoyed our stay having stayed with Stays York on previous occasion was not disappointed. The location was ideal.. The apartment was great for four people. Comfortable beds. The weather was a bonus loads of sunshine Lovely welcome hamper.. Will definitely use Stays York again.
My second stay at Cocoa Suites this time in the Waterline apartment. Cosy apartment ideal for 2 people but could fit 4, wonderfully clean and tidy, great stay.
The location is ideal, you can walk into the city to see the Minster, Wall walks, museums etc. The house was very clean and tidy with good facilties, dvd microwave, dishwasher etc. Stays York we're prompt in refunding the deposit and the booking process was easy.
My partner Philip and I have been visiting the York early music festival for the past 25 years. We have stayed in a variety of accommodation. This was our second visit to 26 City Walls Sanctury and we have booked it again for next year, The flat is well equipped and has the huge benefit of a Large balcony, that we used for alfresco dining on several occasions. Although we don’t have a car, the car parking space was very useful when friends came to visit. A very comfortable bed assures a very good night sleep. Although the flat is not listed as wheelchair accessible accommodation, Philip was ...more
One of my favourite places I've ever stayed! The pictures can't do it justice, and you feel you have just stepped back in time as you're surrounded by all the history of this lovely Tudor building. Beautifully renovated, this beamed apartment takes up the top floor of the house and along with so much character, has all the modern conveniences you could want. It has gorgeous furnishings, fabulous bathrooms and nicely equipped kitchen. The living space and the master suite were so impressive! Parking is a few minutes away which is a bit of a walk with the suitcases but it is so great to have the...more
Our stay, would have been better if we hadn’t had so many issues with the hot water system. I have explained all this to stays York , and am currently awaiting their response, which is looking highly unlikely! It is a very nice modern flat with some lovely features, just one or two cleaning issues and some items missing. It seems to be very new and is a shame , for the amount of money it cost , to not be spot on. I could write a bad review on Vrbo, but let’s see what explanation stays comes up with. There are only 2 reviews on there, I wonder if that’s because people give up because it seems p...more
A group of 7 of us visited York to celebrate a birthday. The house was plenty big enough for us all, 2 toilets helped. The rooms were modern and nicely decorated with very comfy beds. We enjoyed the welcome hamper, much appreciated. We were also contacted to let us know we could check in early. Only downside is lack of parking. Carpark near by but quite pricey.
Cocoa suites is next to the river. It's a nice place. Everything was great! The apartment is really comfortable and the value for money it's really excellent, because York it's an expensive place.
We greatly enjoyed staying at this apartment. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use and the bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. Mark and Liz were very friendly and helpful at our arrival and provided plenty of information about how everything in the apartment worked.
This is a small apartment however it was quite nice. Pros, Location ,cleanliness, new build. Cons, Small parking space, small bathroom, only a double bed ( i doubt a bigger bed would fit) Heating is controlled by HIVE i think, you can only manually boost it , so it was a little cold at times. I would say these are only minor issues.Apart from the bed we were comfortable.
1. The kettle needs to be changed, water flows out 2. The mattress on the big bed is very uncomfortable. It's impossible to sleep on it. Like iron bars 3. There is no wardrobe. It is very uncomfortable. My things were in the suitcase for 2 months Other than that, everything was great. Thanks a lot!
We enjoyed staying at Queen's Court again. Great location, well appointed apartment. Couple of maintenance issues but otherwise excellent. Deposit returned quickly
We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at Middle Cottage. The property was clean, welcoming and comfortable. Having a small supermarket and lovely bakery over the road was useful as well, and Dunnington is a pleasant little village. We didn't use the garden area, but the only even remotely negative comment about the house itself would be that it is rather too easy to hit your head when opening or closing the fridge door! That apart, everything was fantastic and we'd definitely be more than happy to stay there again.
Our second stay, we have visited York many times before and this is now our favourite property, ideally located just outside the city walls. Would definitely recommend!
The stay was perfect - the apartment had everything we needed. It was extremely clean. The staff were very helpful when we first arrived. We loved the welcome package and appreciated the air conditioning because sadly you can’t open the windows. My mum loved the place so much she didn’t want to leave! We will definitely be back next year.
Locate about 10 minutes walk from city centre. Quiet and private. Convenience as nearby supermarket and shopping area within 5 minutes walk.
Loved this place. Comfortable, clean, spacious. The wee terrace out the back was an extra plus, the sun hit it around midday, it was lovely to sit out and have a late breakfast or afternoon tea. Despite being so central, it was very quiet. Would definitely go back again.
Very comfortable stay for 4 nights in York. The location is second to none and provided an absolutely perfect base. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Very useful welcome pack. A number of restaurants, tea rooms and coffee shops directly outside when your feet are too tired to go back out and a Tesco express just round the corner for everything you need if staying in. Lovely spacious modern flat. Great views from apartment 18 and will definitely use again.
Clean and modern apartment. Ideal for our family stay with simple and manageable walking distance to the city centre. Private off-road parking and designated car park spot was good.
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Close to the beach and not far from Whitby. Clean and well equipped. The only downside was no outside seating. The seating in the photo belonged to the next cottage.
Great weekend. Accommodation perfect. Good location - 20 minutes walk from the railway station. Excellent restaurants nearby.
Lovely cottage with well thought out use of space including the outside area! I felt the write up could have been honest about it’s location. Felt I was staying in a courtyard garden of a bunch of flats. The blinds in the room are pointless (bedroom ones let in too much light, others aren’t complete blinds). Very noisy but expected being where it is. Lovely cottage, fairly clean, really close to most areas. Just shame about the wrap around flat scenario
We had a fabulous stay in the house. Everything was very clean and well equipped. There was plenty of room in the bedrooms and dining area. Great location for getting around York too.
Lovely apartment, it had everything you needed, lovely comfy beds , very warm though, as property was sun facing & the fan was loud & only normal tv , so we took a fire stick with us , the post office sorting parking was outside & we thought we would be woken up early with vans coming & going , but there was no problem at all , would definitely stay here again
Our family stayed here for a special birthday weekend. The house overlooked the historic walls, had some wonderful bars, restaurants and amenities on the doorstep and was a short walk into the city centre with all it has to offer. Despite being located on a busy road to the front and to the rear, the house was quiet and peaceful. The outside space was private and provided a lovely space to enjoy the last of the summer sun and gave space for play. Inside the house was clean and spacious with a modern but homely feel and some personal, luxurious finishing touches which made our stay relaxing and...more
Perfectly positioned for our favourite restaurants. Very secure and safe Will definitely return again …
Really nice apartment. Great small balcony sun trap. Good location . Great for two couples with it having to bathrooms with showers.
The location is excellent for exploring all the main sites in York centre and there are lots of good eating places very near. The apartment is well equipped and is very quiet. Would recommend it and would stay again on a future visit to York.
Excellent location, lovely apartment has everything you need! Only let down was that the hot water went cold (freezing cold) after one 10 minute shower, which isn’t ideal when trying to get ready to go out for the day on a cold rainy day! We did try and resolve this on the first day however it did the same again by the second day and heard nothing back after emailing. This was the only let down, otherwise it’s an ideal place to stay. Would consider returning if the water issue was sorted.
Great location Good sized Appartment Low roof was OK even for a 6 footer, just take care The stairs were very manageable and worth the climb for the fabulous view
I booked a 3 night stay for me and my mum to explore York. Location of property very good. For 2 out of our 3 days we were inconvenienced by not having hot water or heating due to a problem with the boiler. A gas engineer was arranged but did not arrive until late afternoon to fix the problem, this left us with no shower facilities prior to us going out for our evening meal. We were disappointed that we had no courtesy call and no offer of a small token of compensation from Stay York. Such a shame.
It was not my first time . And i have the same satisfaction than first time.. Really clean and quiet. Of course, i'll be back
I highly recommend this place. Very confortable with everything you need. Perfect for couples and families with children. It is the second time we stay here. We Feel as in Home! Perfect location in the centre of York.
Lovely clean house equipped with everything we needed during our stay. The 2nd double bedroom is very small but everything else was great. The house is in an ideal location for walking into York. The welcome box was a lovely touch.
Brilliantly located for our needs, so accessible to central York and the walk along the river. Clean and comfortable.
Very well-located and clean cottage with all modern conveniences. The welcome pack is a nice touch. Needs a bit of TLC to fix small things. Seems there used to be blackout curtains in the downstairs bedroom, but had been removed while bracket markings still visible. rather annoying that the TV's do not work as they should with channel info. Some damage on the wall by the door needs repair. A sun umbrella on the patio would be nice to sit outside. Might also be nice to have some fold-up beach chairs available for guest use.
We had a pleasant stay at Apartment 8. It was spotless clean, had everything we needed and the gift basket was a great surprise. The only downside is that we can only wnter the flat at 4 pm. It was hard to spend 6 hours outside with a toddler.
The property is in an ideal, quiet location and within walking distance to access city centre sights. Well designed with a small outdoor area, it is suitably furnished and equipped for up to 4 adults. Modern, clean and uncluttered in a clever design.
We have stayed at this flat for a number of years and have always found it well equipped and comfortable. There are some signs of wear and tear eg The surface of the kitchen top is lifting, the roller blind in the bathroom is stained , however overall these did not detract from our holiday.
Lovely cottage with nice furnishings in a lovely location. Although the kitchen needs more basic equipment: more cutlery (only 3 dessert spoons), potato peeler, bread bin. Also the cleaner needs to invest in a feather duster as cobwebs everywhere! However I would stay again.
Lovely modern and well thought out apartment, very clean and well equipped. Welcome pack a nice touch. One of us found bed to be very comfortable the other wasn’t to keen, ( the only reason I gave it 4 stars on comfort) but it would not stop us booking the apartment again. Would have been more convenient to have 2 sets of keys for the apartment front door and more detailed instructions for the heating. I look forward to staying again when we are next in York.
Fantastic location! Nice little flat. Adequately equipped. Big comfy bed. Garden to look out at as well as part of city wall. Couldn’t sit on terrace because of bees all around beehive in garden. Second visit so we knew all about access. Arrived on rubbish day so passage way a mess and difficult to access by disabled. Still no stool in the bathroom.
Lovely house for a short break, we chose it as it has a small garden which gets the sun in the evening.
A lovely property that's a short walk from the city centre. We hardly used our car. House was spacious and clean. Beds were comfy and bathroom was good. Kitchen was also good however the kitchen equipment was very minimal. There were only two suitable size cups for a cup of tea and no small plates. The cutlery needed replacing. During our stay the dishwasher broke and flooded the floor however this was just bad timing I believe. It was not fixed in time for us to make use of it which was annoying. The sofa and seating in the living room was not enough for a family of four to sit comf...more
A lovely property and great family stay. Would return and also recommend. It’s a new property with a great location and the safe parking was a huge bonus.
Well designed and comfortable. Office responsive when mistake about bedding was made. Couldn’t access terrestrial TV.
A few minor hiccups along the way but Stays always there to get it figured out. A bit tight in parking when many cars but handy to have parking as so many don't. We stayed 2 months :) Very handy to all main streets by walking
It wasn't clean when we arrived but this was soon dealt with and after that everything was good. Highly recommended.
Great location in York city walking distance too main attractions. Apartments are in great condition with a high end feel. Comfortable beds and furniture. Only downside we felt was shortage of crockery and lack of mugs for tea and coffee, also the dining table looks great but really awkward too clean. Great touch with the welcome pack with food and drink essentials but feel it would be nice too get essential pack with shampoos and soaps etc. Just a few touches would make this a 5 star stay in a great location
The apartment is fantastic value for money. The beds are comfortable and it is close to town. Bad points - it is located on a very busy road and is very noisy with traffic and drunks into the early hours so make sure you have ear plugs!
Great location minutes walk to many key locations in York. Well appointed with functional small kitchen. Quite noisy especially on evenings when the nightclub is open across the street. Lights in bathroom are slightly annoying as they are on automatic sensors which is not great in the middle of the night. But for our family it was a good place for a few days.
We stayed for one week in early August. We arrived at 4pm (keys are collected and returned via a key safe near the entrance lobby) but unfortunately the apartment had not yet been cleaned or beds changed, it was also very hot and stuffy, so we opened the windows and the cleaners arrived a few minutes later, were apologetic and asked us to vacate until at least 5pm. When we returned the apartment was clean, it feels new, modern and tastefully appointed with artwork on the walls. The master bedroom with en-suite is the room which converts to twin beds so our two teenage sons took that room, ...more
Beautiful apartment in excellent location. A few minor issues: - There should be a tray in the guest shower to put toiletries for showering - A bigger bed could be considered for the guest room - this is too small for 2 grown adults - Consider thicker curtains for the living area as the sun shines directly into it and makes it extremely glaring in the afternoons
Recently refurbished, clean, quiet flat close to city centre. Second bedroom was smaller than depicted on the website, with the pull out bed erected there was only half a metre space between the 2 beds which were against each wall so really not big enough to be a twin bedroom, ok for smaller kids perhaps but a bit tight for my 2 teens! Ideal as a single bedroom however. Flat was well equipped with iron, ironing board, hairdryer and all kitchen utensils required. Towels, sheets etc. all good quality, new and clean. Kitchen immaculately clean and new, likewise the bathroom which had a good, p...more
Cottage was not for us but in a great location. The customer service from Chris and team was excellent as always. Chris very quickly dealt with changes to our booking. We have booked through Stays a few times and always very satisfied with friendly service and quality of properties.
Good location, plenty of space inside, uncomfortable mattresses! Furniture could do with refreshing, dining room chairs are a bit odd, nice kitchen but two malfunctioning gas rings. Good to have 2 living rooms. No looks in loos and only one door key was a bit unhelpful. No loo roll holders or towel rails…
Amazing property and exactly what we were looking for as we had a wedding near by. House was spotless throughout and had everything you could possibly need. Quality bed linen and really comfortable beds. We had drove over from Dublin and found the parking a little tricky but plenty of parking on other streets nearby so no major issue.
Upside, fantastic location, 5 minutes walk from Minster, convenient for Sainsburys and Coop, plenty of accommodation for 6 people, house had everything we needed. downside, no parking, public rooms small, TV in upstairs lounge not connected, no toilet on ground floor, unable to adjust temperature in shower, gas hob unit faulty unable to light 2 of the hobs, in general the house is a bit tired.
A beautifully furnished property in a great location. The patio garden area and furniture was great. Unfortunately as it has been fairly warm and to keep cool we have had to keep the windows open which was not ideal as the noise from the road and traffic was horrendous. This made it very difficult to get any sleep. The beds ( and we tried both rooms) were very uncomfortable but that may just be down to our preference. The bakery downstairs is great but unfortunately we were woken up by staff buzzing the door to get access to the bakery from 3am.
We stayed for a week in this well-equipped flat. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Rooms were well-laid out and comfortable. Location is excellent. There is an M & S foods about 4 blocks away and a large Sainsbury’s within walking distance (and a taxi ride back). We got our “fit to fly” Covid tests at the Whitehall Clinic in Leeds for our return flight home.
We really enjoyed our stay very quiet got a good night sleep. Very close to al the amenities as well. Only thing was when we leaned on the bed it moved across the floor the bed was not attached to the headboard.short stay
We had a lovely stay in york County house is very close to center of town and parking is secure. The apartment had everything we needed and more.
The Pigsty provides spotlessly clean, modern, light and airy accommodation, in a very well designed small area. It's slightly minimalist, which suited us, but a few additional touches such as wine glasses as well as tumblers, a coffee table by the sofa and instructions for the heating and television would be welcome. The bathroom door is somewhat artisanal, which is fine, except for the noise when you try to close it. Slingsby is a charming village, and the local pub is very friendly and welcoming. The catering was limited to delicious pizzas while we were there, but no doubt the menu w...more
This is a beautiful house that is comfortably furnished and situated in the delightful Raithwaite Estate. We arrived to a lovely little Yorkshire goody bag, filled with yummy treats - which was most welcome! The beds were super comfortable, with lovely bed linen and the place was spotless. Would definitely return again - many thanks!
Booked at the last minute but not disappointed. Super location, lovely accommodation and very clean. Would highly recommend!
Great location just inside city walls with 5 minutes walk to local shoos and 10 minutes walk to city centre. Quiet and easy parking. Comfortable and decor like stepping back in time (in a good way) with thousands of books adirning the walls. Everything you could need in kitchen and bathroom. If being picky, tv a little small by today's standards and limited space to hang smart clothes. A welcome pack detailing how to use facilities ans getting on wifi would be useful but easy enough to work things out. Perfect for a city break.
We had a very relaxing break at 19 High Petergate, the attention to detail within the property was excellent. Everything was of a very high standard. The location of the property was great as it meant we could walk everywhere with ease.
No wi- fi and needs a tv in bedroom for lazy mornings in bed. But really good property and right in York centre
We have stayed in this apartment a number of times and it's like coming home, we love it! Fab location, quiet on an evening, short walk to centre of York. Will be booking again soon definitely.
Quiet place, beautiful views of the river and walking distance to everything. Has its own washing machine and has some amenities to be comfy and feel like home. It doesn’t have a coffee machine and drawers to store clothes
A group of five of us stayed at Longfield House for a week. A brilliant location - everywhere within walking distance. The downstairs was very comfortable, if a little dark. The bedrooms upstairs were however not up to the standard expected. I have emailed the issues to Stay York, but they have not responded. Those issues include: Blocked shower tray in one bathroom, meaning the occupant had to turn the shower on and off every time she used it, to prevent it overflowing onto the carpet. Blocked sink in another bathroom, that hardly drained away, and a missing light above. Holes in the ...more
Very nice stay we.were at a wedding at Woolas Barn so very handy. as we are small my husband and I thought some of the mirrors were high up but everything else was fine and lovely and clean we didn’t cook so can’t comment on that and wouldn’t have gone up the lane for parking would recommend it for anyone visiting the area Rosanne Black
The bathroom was rather cool. Some of the upstairs radiators needed to be bled. The engineer who repaired the boiler said that this was not the first time. Suggests that the heating system needs an overhaul.
This flat is very well located for York, and it generally well appointed. However, it is let down by two poor quality mattresses and poor quality polyester bedding - the stays York team did their best to resolve whilst we were there, but sent two cheap polyester toppers. Additionally, this is a ground floor flat without security straps/catches on the windows, so it is vey hot overnight. Cleaning was average, some litter under sofas and crumbs on the carpet. Quick fixes would make for a better stay.
Me and my girlfriend stayed in studio 44 for a week and it’s the best week away I’ve had. Lovely apartment with all the necessary appliances and modern interior. Would recommend for anyone especially couples. 10/10!!
A delightful cottage on the Floss river where we would watch a family is Swans glide by daily .Truely idillic the cottage had everything we needed. The cleaners did and amazing weekly clean. The space was large and quiet but right in the middle of all the activity. Stays management we’re very responsive to everything we required. We totally recommend .
Advertised as sleeps 4 which it does but fourth bed not full size and room very small when beds as twins. Location and parking excellent. Balcony excellent too. Great for walking into York.
Easy to find & ample parking, the house was comfortable for the 3 of us but would be a squeeze for 6.
The pictures don't do the apartment justice! It's a very comfortable place to come back to on your travels. It's location in the middle of York means nothing is more than a walk away and you do not need to navigate the public transport systems if you don't want to. Pleanry of lovely places to eat close by tpp if you want an evening 'close-to-home'.
The apartment was well kept, clean and had everything there one could ask for in a short stay. The location was nice, as it was about a 15 min walk or less to the center of the city were there's always activities and food to enjoy.
Couldn't have wished for a better location, on one side you're right on the wall and seconds into the city center whilst nestled in Bishy a wonderful artisan area with a fabulous range of shops. The property has everything you need and more with a higher than average spec, there's everything you could possibly need and more and everything top quality !! Beautiful artwork throughout .. a private gallery in its own right. Street parking with permit provided was never a problem although no place directly outside to unload the car however that was simply because I was there on a long stay with a l...more
Overall a fine stay but some things could be improved: Parking permit available on arrival - we got a ticket Better quality bedding (pillows and mattress) Hessian carpet as you come out of the bathroom isn't pleasant No blinds in bedroom - v strange! Very noisy from upstairs - sounded as if the people walking around upstairs were in the bedroom. Small milk in the fridge would have been helpful.
The houses was beautifully decorated and well located. We had everything needed to cook and stay comfortably. The size is wonderful. It was not, however, particularly clean. There were cobwebs everywhere, dead spiders in drawers in the kitchen, the carpets and floors were quite dirty. I went to clean it myself and found the vacuum hadn’t been emptied-maybe ever and the container was filled to the brim. It’s a great house and with a more thorough cleaning we would have loved to stay longer.
We had a 3 night stay for New Year. We liked the position of the cottage but we were disappointed with the facilities. We couldn’t get the TV’s in the bedrooms to work. A hairdryer in 1 bedroom didn’t work. And on New Year’s Eve we didn’t have any hot water. We turned on a switch we believed would be the immersion heater and contacted emergency support. We had cold showers. The next morning the water was hot but the boiler made a loud noise when we turned the thermostat down. We feel the property lacks sufficient crockery for 4 people to make a meal. The cafetière was for 1 person but there i...more
Enjoyed the space and the extra touches of the record player etc. The property needs a little attention in the general maintenance, stairs rickety, washing machine no button to start, foot bar not secured to bar stools, filled sink over the overflow and leaked out under the sink unit. Also the rugs on the wooden floor are lethal when walking around. Could benefit from a better equipped kitchen Enjoyed the space very much, large, bright. Easy check-in/check-out. Great location.
The house is well located for a city break, 5mins zigzagging through some back lanes and you’re within the inner city walls via monk gate. Procedures are swift and self explanatory. The property itself has seen many generations of guests which is mainly felt in the bed and reception rooms. Kitchen and bath are best for cleanliness. The cleaners know their job. There is a black throw on the double bed that might need to be exchanged or properly cleaned as it does not smell good anymore. Upon arrival the house was cold which was not very welcoming, it needed a whole evening to get warmer and bei...more
House was approx 25 mins walking distance from City Centre. Storage space limited in some of the rooms and some areas of the house looked as if decor still had to be completed and could have been tidied up. Beds in all the rooms apart from main room were very low and maybe not ideal for older people Weather was nice but sadly couldnt make use of garden as felt it still needed to be finished Nice welcome box left for us on arrival, but unfortunately couldnt use the coffee as no percolator in the house. Oh and bring your hairdryer, nothing to be found
Excellent apartment in a great location for visiting York. The only disappointment was that some areas such as the bathroom did not appear to have been cleaned prior to our arrival. Other than this, I would recommend it.
Generally it’s a good experience. But delivery sometimes called us through the outside entry system although it is not our package.
Firstly and most importantly the studio was spotless when we arrived, very good cleaning, as you'd expect while still in a pandemic. A rather nice hamper awaited which added to the wow when we got there. The bed was lovely and certainly no problems there. Plenty of plug sockets, more than anyone could need. But general decor was lovely and welcoming. But unfortunately there are a few things I would pick up on, that all in all really did change my opinion on the stay. Firstly, I could hear every movement from the people upstairs. I wouldn't expect full sound proofing but when it comes to wo...more
Unfortunately we thought previous reviews might have been exaggerating on the amount of noise you can hear, in particular from the 2 bedrooms at the front of the property... How wrong we were! There is a lot of noise and I'm afraid mostly from people after a night out. You can hear every part of peoples conversations. We stayed for 5 nights and were woken up by noise every night/early morning and not just a few minutes, one night was over an hour we were kept up, at around 3am (and this was a week night, not the weekend). The property itself is extremely clean, great layout, and an exce...more
We stayed in the cottage for a week long 'staycation'. The cottage is tucked away as part of the Raithwaite estate, and benefits from the calm and quiet surroundings, as well as the facilities from the nearby house. The location was perfect. Big enough to have enough comfort, but close enough to the beach to make the walk not feel like a chore. The cottage was well presented, and was very clean and tidy. The facilities were excellent, and no issues with the TV set up. There was a small courtyard area outside the front which we made good use of too. I would recommend this propert...more
The apartment was as expected however the main problem was car parking. The information pack that is supplied by 'Stay York' suggests the closest car park is Shambles Q Park which isn't correct. Having taken this information at face value and having pre-booked with Q Park and paid pennies short of £70 for 3 nights parking it was extremely disappointing to find that parking was available outside the apartment block. Admittedly the charges would have been similar to that at Q Park however it would have been more convenient given that the walking distance of approximately 500 metres from the apar...more
Stays York was overall very easy to work with. I found it a little frustrating that I didn't know who to call for what. Someone different was always contacting me, sometimes 2 different people for the same issue. However, overall Stays York was easy to work with. The location was fabulous. However, the house was not as advertised. The house was not clean when we arrived. The vacuum was still in the middle of the floor from when the last renters left. There were holes in the walls where towel bars and other items had hung but had not been replaced, empty screws where pictures once hung, t...more
