Another perfect 3rd visit. A personal welcome from Ellen, location, location, location! Attention to detail second to none, welcome basket lovely as usual. Loved to see the Apartment decorated for Christmas. The other Apartments we have stayed in across the UK could learn a lot from Ellen! Thanks for a lovely stay Ellen, we look forward to returning again in 2017!

Our second visit to your beautiful apartment and it felt like coming home again. So comfortable and the Welcome Basket is much appreciated. York is such a beautiful city and we will never tire of seeing it. People are so friendly, and we have even given the voice in the lift a name. She’s Lola the Lift Lady and we say Good Morning & Good Night to her!! Hope to see you again next year. Merry Christmas to all. Brilliant Trip!!

We are losing track of our visits. Yet another totally relaxing stay in the flat with all the sights of York on the doorstep. As ever our student son enjoyed some home comforts and being fed! Evensong at The Minster atmospheric as ever.
A, D & L. Cumbria. Nov. 16
We ambled through The Shambles, and shopped in all the Malls, We cruised up the Ouse & Walked Along the Walls. We heard about the Romans, Vikings as well, We heard the sound of distant trains and the mighty Minster Bells. We visited the Dungeons & then a Ghost Walk too. What a great place to stay in the Fine City of York. A fine holiday in a fine apartment in a fine city. (at least it rhymes!) Thanks for everything.
G, L & L. Nov. 16
