    The house location was perfect. However the level of cleanliness wasn't. We had to clean the Kitchen and bathroom before using. Dust and cobwebs throughout, no heating in the dining room. Towels and bedding smelt dank. All had to be washed and dried before use. Such a shame as the location was perfect

    Perfect location just outside the city walls yet minutes from York centre. Good restaurants, pubs, take-aways abound in the immediate vicinity. River Haven on three floors has all the facilities for a long or short stay. Outlook to the Foss is pleasant and a bonus with ducks, swans etc., appearing regularly. Difficult to imagine a city with more to offer than York.

    Fabulous property in a fabulous location. Lovely hosts who went the extra mile to make things homely. Such a shame that they won't be renting it out after next spring.

    Brilliant location, had everything we needed. Super artwork suited the rooms, loved being able to go from front door to riverside bench with a drink in the evening. Helpful owners.

    This is a lovely townhouse with parking and close to York centre, would love to be able to return, however cleanliness was a big issue. The kitchen, bathroom and toilet were not up to a standard that most people could live with, especially the downstairs toilet which had a filthy floor and ingrained dust everywhere. In the kitchen the kettle was unusable, and found crumbs in the utensil drawer. Courtyard is untidy with weeds and some uneven slabs on the path to the parking spot.

    We had a fantastic family holiday. The house was in a wonderful location for us to explore York and the house was perfect for a family holiday.
