    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.

    Enjoyed our stay but some confusion the morning we left. The owners had double booked the Sunday night and had to put a couple up in a hotel on our final night . They turned up at 10am on the Monday morning (didn't realise we had to be out by 10am )so it was all a bit chaotic and rushed. Needless to say we left our keys and had to return for them. Apart from this it was an ideal place to stay and everything is provided. The lemon cake was delicious!

    Our 2nd visit. Lovely property in a fantastic location. Very comfortable with everything needed included. Safe parking and no need to use car as a very short walk to all the lovely sights of York. Also close to bus stop. Although property is close to main road it is very quiet so a good night's sleep guaranteed! Will definitely return.

    The location is excellent and the house was just what we wanted. It was a joy to leave the car and walk everywhere we wanted to go. We were met by the owners on arrival and shown where everything is and where to eat should you not want to cook. We have a brilliant time and could not ask for more.
