This properties (28&29) are misrepresented to some extent. They're storage heaters throughout and need some updating, not suitable for more than one couple unless you do not require privacy, not family friendly or accessible for those with mobility issues and are a bit dirty and could do with a freshen up. The mezzanine bedrooms aren't mezzanine as you would expect. The high ceilings of this period property have been split in two by a floor which creates a short ceiling height. We measured that the living room TV was 1.5m from the bed of the two singles on the floor above. The children could look through the railings and watch TV. The living room is directly below and there is NOTHING to barrier the noise. We were trapped in our own home so to speak as we couldn't watch TV once our children (or friends possibly in other people's cases) had gone to bed. In apartment 29, you looked down straight in to the double bedroom below. Quite literally you could hear everything that was occurring above and below, be it some one turning, a cough or getting up to go to the loo which is downstairs. It is marginally better than being on bunk beds. In flat 28, the kitchen and dining area is entirely open to the bedroom above. My brother did tell the owner (who is fantastically charming and lovely) that he wasn't a) used to sleeping with a fridge freezer in his bedroom (it was just below his bed) and it was so ridiculously noisy. It kept him and his wife up all night. Upon hearing the news, the owner simply apologised. In flat 29, the shower didn't drain, the sink plug didn't lift and so we had to cup the water out, the water didn't heat and you got a 6 minute shower, in flat 28 the water suffered the same issue. There was a bath ( in flat 28 only) which had a plug that didn't fit and so the water drained in minutes (wish we had that problem with the shower n flat 29). The owners (despite describing the accommodation as 5*) didn't make all the beds up. Our family was comprised of 2 ad, 1 ch and 1 cot - we had paid full price for a 2 single and 1 double 5*apt. I didn't think for second that all the beds would not be made up. We had a poorly boy with no bedding to sleep next to him. In addition there wasn't so much as a mini bottle of body wash in either apt. but there was a a brownish dated plastic bathmat and something to clean the shower screen with. The kitchens were really old and dirty, the fridge freezer in flat 29 didn't work properly and the lift worked sometimes.
We stayed for a long weekend to start our Christmas shopping and York did not disappoint. It was a brilliant weekend and the apartment was perfect. It takes 1 minute to walk to Monkgate. The apartment was spotless and Pauline made us very welcome. I would recommend anyone to stay here. It is 5 star accomodation.
Apartments were well appointed, very clean and 5 minutes from the Minster and the centre of York. Having the secure car park was an added bonus. We had a wonderful family break and Pauline made us all so welcome. We will be staying here again on our next visit to York.
My sister and I decided on the spur of the moment to visit the York Food & Drink Festival. We wanted somewhere close to the centre so we could walk in and participate in the event. This location was perfect. It is literally 5 minutes from the Minster and all York has to offer. Secure parking meant we could leave the car safely all weekend. The apartment is wonderful with the mezzanine bedrooms and a fully appointed kitchen. Would definitely recommend this place.
This was our first visit to York but we wanted to have the flexibility of self catering within walking distance of the city centre but it also had to have its own parking so we could use the car for trips into the surrounding area. Well this apartment provided everything we needed. A few minutes walk into the city yet in a very quiet area with secure car parking. There was a large store just round the corner which provided everything we needed. We had a fantastic week in what is superbly appointed accommodation which was very comfortable. This plus the warm welcome from Pauline ensures that we will be making a return visit in the future. We thoroughly recommend this apartment.
