Situated right next to the city walls and within site of the York Minster, this beautifully furnished three bedroom, 2 bathroomed apartment - with a parking permit included - is an oasis of calm elegance situated in the centre of York.

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 excellent location but that versus a good nights sleep, I'm afraid makes it not value for money in our eyes. On the value we paid, if we had to pay that again, we would not stay here or recommend it. Should the windows be rectified (one you could see a gap at the bottom of the frame) to cancel out the noise, then yes, it would be worth the money.
If there are other places available that you're currently reviewing, we would suggest go for another property.

One other negative (and advice if you do book this property) is the TV, this needs updating.... The connection to the wifi didn't work. Would advise to take a laptop or other device if you like watching TV (Apps/Netflix).

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As you say, the property is in the centre of York, only a stones throw from the Minster and we would expect that there would be some city noise, although it is not on a main thoroughfare. We take all feed back onboard and secondary glazing is now in the process of being fitted in both of the front bedrooms. The apartment is in a listed building and so it all has to be hand made, the first part of the instillation has been completed and the remainder should be finished imminently. Again thank you for raising this and I hope that now the issue has been resolved we will be welcoming you back to York in the not too distant future.
