Lovely apartment, it had everything you needed, lovely comfy beds , very warm though, as property was sun facing & the fan was loud & only normal tv , so we took a fire stick with us , the post office sorting parking was outside & we thought we would be woken up early with vans coming & going , but there was no problem at all , would definitely stay here again

316 Westgate, York is everything it says and more! Perfect location for the river, station and centre of York. The place itself was spotless and had all that we needed. Short walk into the centre and onto the historic York Minster. Everything on your doorstep, so would definitely go back again.

Great place! Excellent location, cozy and comfortable place, located in a very quiet part of the city, outside the old town city walls. There is plenty of space and the kitchen is very well-equipped. We can go walking to the main city attractions.

We stayed at the apartment for the purpose of visiting the races and sightseeing in York, and the location of the apartment was great. We were a little apprehensive at first as it overlooks the Royal Mail sorting office, but if the windows were closed there was very little noise. The apartment was clean and was very well equipped. Stays York we’re extremely helpful with a query I had prior to arrival. All in all a very pleasant stay and would recommend and book again.

A lovely festive Christmas break away in York

31 December 2019
Verified Up Front Reviews
Myself and my boyfriend recently stayed at 316 Westgate for an early Christmas break away. We have stayed at Westgate in the past so we knew the location of the complex. It is very central and close to all the attractions York has to offer. The complex itself is spotlessly clean and clearly well maintained and had a festive atmosphere when you walked in with the lovely Christmas tree. As for our apartment, again spotless and well maintained, lovely en suite bedroom and a relaxing living/dining area. Also we had everything we needed supplied for us. If there was one tiny I will say observation, it's that it had a bit of a cold sense to it because of the fact that there are no carpets in any of the rooms. Carpets would make it feel warmer. But as I say, this is by no means a complaint, just observation. We had a fantastic time and would most definitely recommend it to anyone. Communication regarding key collection with Ernestina was very efficient and she and her husband Kevin were both helpful and friendly. I would also particularly like to mention Claire, the lady who dealt with all my communication with inyorkholidays. Claire was extremely helpful and very friendly at all times when I rang up for anything and took the time to actually chat and show an interest in our plans and not try to rush me off the phone. This is rare sometimes now, so thank you Claire for all your help. All in all our trip to york was a great one and if we are to return to York some time, we would definitely think about 316 Westgate as our place to stay.

The flat is well placed to get about York. Everything you would need for your stay is in the flat. Having a secure parking spot is great as parking in York can be a nightmare. York itself is a city that you have to visit at least once and is a delight to walk around. I would highly recommend this flat and would consider returning myself.

We had a lovely week at 316 Westgate in York, the apartment was nice and quiet and comfortable with all home comforts, it is suitable for a disabled person, our daughter is in a wheelchair and this is the reason we chose the property, it is handy for the city centre for everything you need, there are plenty of convenience stores near by and a vast selection of restaurants to choose from if you are looking to eat out, I would recommend this property to anyone thinking of visiting York.

Lovely convenient location for walking into town and for trains, buses etc. Could have done with more ovenproof cookware as one casserole is not really enough to prepare/serve a meal for four adults especially if you wanted to use the microwave at same time. One wooden spoon not enough and there were no serving spoons (there were spaghetti servers and a slotted spoon but these are no use for sauce etc.) Also no brush to sweep the floor with so was a bit 'crummy' by the end of our week. Apart from these inconveniences a great time was had by all and we would go back again.

Mrs Collett - owner Replied:

Hi Karen Sorry to hear from you regarding the kitchen facilities I will update these and make sure there is a sweeping brush ( there is one but unfortunately it was locked away in the cleaning cupboard) the freezer is new but switched off as the door needs adjusting but this will be done in the next week, very sorry for the inconvenience caused but I hope you will visit our apartment again as york is a fantastic place. Kind regards Christine Collett

The apartment is ideally located next to the rail station and a short walk from the city centre. We have stayed in this apartment before and noticed it had a refurbishment, it was nice before but it’s better now with new kitchen and bathrooms. Hopefully we will be able to book this apartment again next year. The weather was an added bonus but unfortunately it made the apartment very warm.

This was a wonderful find. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and is in a perfect location for exploring York and the surrounding area. You are only a couple of minutes walk from Lendal bridge and the train station and 5 minutes from the centre of York. The apartment is well laid out and is fully equipped for your stay with utensils and appliances. There is a local caretaker as well for any problems. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great location but facilities a little tired

Great convenient location within easy walking distance of York city centre and main attractions, just down the road from the Railway Museum. The accommodation was generally fine but we didn't feel it warranted 4 stars. The facilities appeared a little tired, the ensuite basin was cracked and some kitchen items were not clean. The apartment was cold the first evening and it was not possible to adjust the heating controls. It did warm up later in our stay, but there was no heating at all in the bunk bedroom. Having said this, the wi-fi internet worked well, the apartment was quiet and the building had secure access. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and we would probably stay again because of the location.

Owner: Replied:

Thank you for your review I am very sorry to hear you were not happy with everything we were not aware the basin in the en-suit was cracked and we will be replacing this, the heating system is also being replaced this year and I will speak to our house keeper re kitchen items not being clean as this is not acceptable, I hope you enjoyed York and your holiday wasn't spoilt and hope you will stay with us again.

Pros: 1 - Great location; walking distance to most attractions within York 2 - Clean, modern, well maintained and good sized flat. 3 - All amenities provided (Functional kitchen, washer-dryer, Iron, hairdryer, car parking etc.) Cons 1 - 2 of the 3 bedrooms and also the bathrooms don't have any windows so can feel a bit stuffy. The 3rd bedroom with bunk beds is very small and can feel claustrophobic. 2 - View of Royal mail depot from living room. Overall, the pros far outweigh the cons and I would definitely consider living here again.

Generally very pleased and would stay there again. Very good location for station; not so good for centre of town, but we knew that going in. Could use a tea pot, new duvet on spare bed and written instructions on how to operate hob, oven, microwave and washer/dryer. Get rid of those horrible hairy cushions in the living room. Henry Tate.

Christine Replied:

Sorry to hear you had a few concerns I have taken your comments on board and I have today purchased a teapot, the instructions for all the appliances are in a folder in the bottom drawer in the kitchen you should have been made aware of this on check-in, sorry to hear you don't like my hairy cushions. I hope you will visit again & did manage to enjoy your stay at our apartment & York city which is a beautiful city.

The in York team are fantastic, their customer service is faultless. This is our second time booking through them. 316 West gate was a well presented, ideally located property, but the lack of windows in the second bedroom and boxroom was less than ideal. The condition of the bikes that were made available by the owners was appalling but In York dealt with this to our satisfaction. Apart from that the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

A first class apartment, wheelchair friendly, on the river and minutes from all the attractions. It provided a perfect break for four people with different interests, all being catered for, being able to access all areas without having to get the car out. Would love to do again.

If going by train location is great and very central. This is our 4th visit to this apartment, we are a family of 4 adults and one child. You can see a little of of the river but you can also see the Royal Mail distribution centre. We usually go in April but this year we went in July, the apartment was very warm and there are only windows in the lounge and one bedroom. There are fans if you need them. Good value as it is difficult to get somewhere for 5 at a reasonable price. We have never had a problem with the service.

Perfectly located if visiting by train, a few minutes walk from the station and only a few more to the middle of the city. A modern apartment, well appointed and comfortable. Don't expect a great view as it looks over the Royal Mail sorting office and the two smaller bedrooms don't really have windows.
