“Well placed accommodation”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2019

The flat was just right for 2 people. It contained all you need for a city break. The owner met us as we arrived and showed us around the flat which was a nice touch. Really appreciated the complementary supplies, including a bottle of nice wine. More over it was so convenient for all the attractions which could be accessed after a short walk. York is a great place to visit. There are lots of attractions over and above the minster. We recommend the castle museum and if you want a bit of fun try the dungeons. Lots of nice eateries to suit every taste. We liked The House Of Trembling Madness, one situated in Stonegate and the other in the side street by the Mansion House. Both serve good old fashioned British food and really good beer!! All in all a good experience helped by lovely accommodation.
