We had a lovely stay! It was everything we could have wanted for four adults and a baby. Plenty of space and the views can’t be beaten! Easy walking distance to anything you would want to see. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Excellent stay, lovely apartment in a good location. Felt secure, came with parking spot. Great location, ( this apartment on the 6th floor, was with views from the front side building)which was our choice, the back is overlooking river. Walkable to all the city centre, local grocery shops in same street, on a bus route, and walkable to train station. Lovely furnishings, kitchen area great appliances, great master bedroom walk in shower, came with parking spot, would advise to check if booking diff apartment. Felt secure entering and leaving the building, very well-lit areas, and a lovely Christmas tree and decorations, made it more special, thank you.

Lovely apartment, great location, a few suggestions to make the stay more comfortable

We stayed for one week in early August. We arrived at 4pm (keys are collected and returned via a key safe near the entrance lobby) but unfortunately the apartment had not yet been cleaned or beds changed, it was also very hot and stuffy, so we opened the windows and the cleaners arrived a few minutes later, were apologetic and asked us to vacate until at least 5pm. When we returned the apartment was clean, it feels new, modern and tastefully appointed with artwork on the walls. The master bedroom with en-suite is the room which converts to twin beds so our two teenage sons took that room, whilst my husband and I took the second smaller bedroom with the double bed. This room is furnished to a minimal standard. Apart from the bed, there was a hanging rail, a set of narrow shelves and mirror. There are no bedside tables or lamps, meaning that spectacles, reading book, morning cup of tea etc. had to be put on the floor. The bathrooms are lovely, clean, great showers and plenty of hot water however the extractor fans did not come on and we would also suggest a bin and hooks to hang towels or other items on in each of the bathrooms. There is a utility room which we used to hang the towels to dry after use. The kitchen is very nice, well equipped, we did 'cook at home' on one occasion. Also we ate breakfast at the apartment and so would suggest cereal bowls. We didn't use the dishwasher and so a dish drainer would have been useful. As a previous reviewer said there is a very large TV with access to Netflix, however no Freeview TV so no digital channels. The main living space has floor to ceiling windows which give impressive views towards the Minster, however we found the room to be uncomfortably warm on occasions when the sun was shining as there are no window dressings in the living area (the bedrooms have black out curtains). The windows can be opened for ventiltion, but being in the city there is a lot of traffic noise. We did speak to York Stays about providing fans but they did not respond to our request. The apartment is really convenient for getting around York on foot, we loved walking around the city walls, and we also visited Fountains Abbey, Harrogate, Pickering and Dalby Forest, all of which were great. In summary the apartment is very nice and contempory, however a few finishing additions would help to make the stay a little more comfortable.

Excellent Stay

Great apartments, with all required equipment and more. Home from home. Would absolutely book with Stays and the Ryedale house apartments. The York House and Cityscape apartments were excellent and a big plus was the very comfortable beds in York House. Excellent friendly customer service. Thank you to Chris and team

Has to be One of the best mini breaks we have had!

A Great Getaway

This was a weekend away for my wifes significant birthday (We'll leave it there.) We were met by one of the representatives, who was a pleasant chap and he arrived with the keys and fobs. He took us up to the apartment and explained a few basics on the way. The apartment is in a great location. Literally a couple of hundred yards from the edge of the town centre with great local amenities. A Tesco express and Sainsbury local are within a five minute walk, fro those making it more of a self catering break. The apartment itself is fantastic. Ample parking exists behind a gated car park, for which you receive a fob and one space for your stay duration. The apartment is very well furnished and has everything to make it self contained. As you enter the building, there is an air of newness and this is highlighted further when you leave the lift at floor six and get the smell of the newly laid carpet. Energy efficient lighting comes on as you leave the lift, to light the way to your apartment. On entering, there is a long hallway with a bathroom to the right then the master bedroom and the second bedroom at the end. The master room has a fantastic en-suite with a drench shower, toilet and basin. The bedroom is of a good size and has a chest of drawers, a hanging rail with hangers and a dressing table. The only consideration here would have been a bedside table. The living room is brilliant. All glass walled, with fantastic views across York. A good size sofa and two chairs feature around a coffee table and a widescreen TV. Netflix is available, if you have an account. The pack stated that Freeview is available and whilst it was available to select, it didn't work and simply pixelated all of the time. The kitchen area is well equipped with cutlery, pans, cook books along with plenty of glasses and pottery. There is also a four seater dining table. There was a lovely welcome pack on the table with tea, coffee, biscuits and sachets of milk. My daughter loved the relaxer chair in the corner, where she could sit back and just take in the view. The second bedroom is again of good size and has ample storage for clothing and accessories. The only consideration here is that we requested this room to be set up as two beds but it was a king size bed that could not be split. Considerations for the property would be that we had a few crumbs on the living room rug, which the cleaning team should have attended to. We stayed in June 2021 and it was very warm. From what we could work out, there was heating only and no cooling. The TV needs the Freeview sorting out. We were asked to dispose of any rubbish prior to leaving the apartment. This was to be done via a rubbish chute in a utility room. Unfortunately, having tried for over an hour, the chute repeatedly showed "Busy" and could not be used. We therefore took our rubbish away with us. Finally, returning the keys. You do this by going to the town centre office and just posting them through. What we didn't realise was that the street is one of the very narrow ones, near the minster, with limited access. As such, parking is difficult. Perhaps a post back envopak system could be looked at or some kind of secure box in reception. Despite the minor hiccups above, we had a great time and would have no hesitation in staying here again or recommending to to others.
