Here are the Testimonials left for us by our Guests – taken straight from the Guestbook. We love to hear what you have been doing, where you have eaten, and what sights you recommend. We hope that some of these give you inspiration for you next stay at The Old Brewery
Another fantastic stay at The Old Brewery, our home away from home on our annual visit to York – The streak is now for 22 consecutive years. We’ve stayed in nice flats most of those years, but this place is far and away at the top of the list. Everything about this place from the spacious feel to the amenities to the amazing location to the lovely owners – it is a 100% complete and total winner! Thank you Ellen & Kevin…. And, for other guests reading this, please try Goji Vegetarian Café & Deli for lunch or takeaway around on Goodramgate (lots of non-vegetarians love it too) They also have spectacular vegan cakes. Try Pistachio & Cardamom – It will change your life!

We are return visitors too. Once you have stayed here it is difficult to consider another York base! Ellen, you need to expand operations to meet demand? Just as good as before. So convenient to have shops and restaurants so close with the added bonus of private parking. Anyone heading out for a moorland walk, try the circular route around Horcum Hole.

We had a fabulous stay. It was just so nice to stay somewhere so central, yet quiet so comfortable and stylish and with so much on your doorstep. It’s made our relocation from Sydney more than bearable! Beds are super comfortable and it’s a delight to cook with sharp knives. Would recommend Bistro No. 8 on Gillygate, Brew & Brownie on Museum Street, Pudding & Pie on Bishopthorpe Road, Little Italy just around the corner from the Apartment. Thank you so much Kevin & Ellen. Hope to see you in the near future.

Third year for our reunion. It’s our 40th having met at High School, and fantastic weekend as ever! Big thanks to housekeeping who keep the place looking perfect!
Judith. November 14
Our second stay – Just as wonderful as the first! Our son is at university here and fully approves of a mini-break from halls with the added bonus of free meals! We had never ventured into Betty’s Tea Room as always so busy, but we went for the evening meal instead, and it was wonderful, great food and service and very relaxing with piano music. Looking forward to returning to this flat and York itself. They are a perfect combination! Thank You.

Another delightful stay at your place! Thanks for having such a great place for us to stay on our annual visit to York. Ellen & Kevin you do the little extra things that separate your place from most self-catering Apartments. We look forward to our stay again next year and will be in touch between now and then. For other guests, we would strongly recommend you try GOGI Vegetarian Café on Goodramgate. It doesn’t matter if you are vegetarian or not, you will still find some great, tasty stuff there.Cheers.

Fabulous in every aspect. Can’t really improve on what has already been written. Sets a new benchmark in what really is 5 star! I guess the ‘wow’ on first impression says it all. Thanks to Ellen for all the personal touches and information. Congratulations on the interior design, definitely a ‘ ‘cut above’.
David & Elaine, Leicester. August 14
Thank you Ellen for such a wonderful stay. We have loved The Old Brewery Apartment. We all wish we had much longer to stay here.

Sue & Dave, July 14
Our second visit in the last year, so made use of our tickets for free second visits to The Jorvik and visited York Dungeon this time which we thoroughly enjoyed. Paid another visit to The Railway Museum as there is so much to see. So much in York we haven’t seen so will have to return and wouldn’t stay anywhere else Ellen. Thank you again, just perfect.
Linda & Family, Essex. June 14
What a wonderful place to stay. After we first opened the door and walked around stunned and excited by our good fortune, we settled to a very welcome cuppa. Thank you Ellen, the whole package is fantastic and we will be recommending it.We can recommend a visit to The Railway Museum, Yorvik and lunch at Little Betty’s is wonderful. We visited York Minster and returned for Evensong, great! We also went on the City Tour Bus and The York Boat Tour, which we greatly enjoyed. So much to do, so little timer! We plan to go to breakfast at Little Betty’s to round off our trip. We would love to return very soon.
Becky & Family, Herts. June 14
We enjoyed our stay at this beautifully appointed apartment and really appreciated the attention to detail in the fitting out of the entire apartment. Beds were the most comfortable we have had and the kitchen had the best knives, saucepans etc, of all the places we have stayed so far. A high quality self-catering apartment in a fantastic location. Would love to return one day.
