What a gem - thank you Ellen. We had such a fantastic time helped in no small part by your wonderful apartment. Rarely have we stayed in an apartment so beautifully appointed, the building and rooms are superb. The apartment had everything that we wanted with the added bonus of a wonderful location with private parking. Thank you too for all the little things that made our stay special including the welcome basket with the delicious items and the superb toiletries. We are sad to leave, but will take good memories and will recommend you to all our friends. Best wishes,Pete & Carole, March 13

We have stayed in York on several occasions in hotels and apartments, but this is by far the best with a perfect location and a home from home. We would definitely come back. As mentioned by others suggested restaurants Ambiente, and Little Italy are worth a visit, plus afternoon tea at The Cedar Court Grand is an alternative to Bettys.Sylvia, Lilia & Polo, Mexico City, Jan 13

This is our 8th New Year stay in York and it couldn’t have been better. The location is excellent and décor feels just like home. High ceilings make the apartment feel bigger and brighter. Bedrooms and bathrooms are also exceptional to every extent they could be. Thank you for the lovely hamper, it was a lovely surprise.Barb, Jim & Amy, Tacoma, Washington, Dec 12
York at Christmas sounded like a good idea and that was confirmed when we walked into the apartment and found a darling lit Christmas tree in one corner, lovely music playing, and a generous gift basket on the table. Thank you! The apartment was amazing. All of your artful touches were appreciated as were all the self-catering amenities. York at The Old Brewery, Apartment 6 are 5 star plusCaroline & George, Dec 12

We have had a lovely time in York in this apartment. Beautifully done out and very comfortable. Thank you too for the welcome basket. We enjoyed Rustique and Little Italy, but best to book.

What a beautiful apartment. I have stayed in B & B’s, hotels etc for years and never before have I stayed anywhere this beautiful, cosy, homely and quiet. Even the smallest of detail has been covered and it is absolutely spotless, it looks brand new. I will definitely be coming back here as soon as I can. The welcome basket was a lovely tough.

Ellen, we had a wonderful stay at The Old Brewery. The apartment is superb and the location is tremendous -so central. We can't believe how close we are to The Minster. Good pubs: The Old Swan & Old Starre Inn have great beer and the Swan has live music. Cafes: really liked Coffee Culture, just a stone's throw away. And the history!Frances & Bob, October 2012
Lovely accommodation and a great location. Thank you for the welcome basket and the toiletries. Hope to return soon

Ellen, A first class apartment which we loved. Spent a fortune on new soft furnishings etc. You were a real inspiration! We look forward to our next stay with you. The Welcome Basket was much appreciated. Loved Guppy's Chocolates
Now on our 'severelth' visit and thoroughly enjoyed it again! We will be back! PS. Do we get a 'frequent flyer discount'? PPS. Try 'Mollies Cafe - good latte and excellent cakes!
Ellen. Thank you so much once again. Apartment lovely as always and the welcome basket is such a nice touch, especially Guppy's chocolates! Hope to come back soon
Perfect, lovely, fabulous. Thank you
What a fantastic apartment you have. We felt thoroughly at home during our two week stay here. A graceful soaring feeling with lots of natural light, quiet, great location. Also, very well appointed. It made our decision to book again for next year quite easy (our 18th consecutive year visiting York). I guess you can say we are giving 'The Old Brewery' the thumbs up! PS. Check out 'Goji Cafe' nearby on Goodramgate
We always stay in Hotels in York, not anymore. Really enjoyed our stay and really feels like home from home. Thank you
Ellen, Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment

It was great to find that the apartment was in such a quiet location and so close to the centre of town. The kitchen was well equipped so the self-catering was a breeze.

Everything just perfect! We love York and we will now be back much sooner, as we have found this most wonderful apartment! Thank you
We have been coming to York for many years and this is by far the best accommodation and location. Totally agree about the Tapas bar in the corner but there is so much choice to try elsewhere in the city. We will be back next year
Lovely apartment, close to everything and very well-equipped. Tapas bar in the corner is very very good. Nice and quiet, good second bathroom-really enjoyed our stay which involved visiting several Heritage sites - York Museum, Gallery and the ASFF film Festival where we had a short film screening, something for everyone. Will definitely be back
Glorious nights in the most gorgeous flat! A perfect weekend and we’ll be back very soon
What else can we say that hasn't already been said in these pages? Superb! The only downside of going to York is that there is never enough time to see and do everything we would like. Loved the Illuminations at Castle Square Musueum. Looking forward to coming back soon!
Lovely apartment and a very conveniently located
An enjoyable few days away. We also think the apartment is so convenient and the hospitality wonderful. Thank you

Will only agree with all that goes before about good things regarding apartment. With benefit of experience: Italian deli-not so good, overcooked chicken = two pounds off Bill! Loch Fyne restaurant-very good meal and service tonight. York boat on lovely sunny day-very pleasant. Also on lovely sunny day coffee in Greys Court Gardens-relaxing . Minster for 5:10 PM, Evensong a lovely experience. Thank you for Goodie basket Ellen, it's been good dealing with you. We hope we get the opportunity to come back again

Absolutely first rate. Lovely and functional amenities. We could not have imagined a more convenient location as a first-time visitors. Would heartily recommend to anyone interested in visiting York.

May 2011 this apartment really is five-star quality-all those little extras made our stay so pleasurable. Really enjoyed the basket of goodies, the games and the books. Ate out at the Guy Fawkes and the Italian deli around the corner-excellent meals. Such a great spot to enjoy York
What can we say that hasn't already been said! “Diolch yn fawr iawn” (thank you very much). We have had a great time and the apartment has made it a five-star stay
OMG! Gorgeous apartment-the height of luxury! We holiday in York twice a year, every year and this is by far the best place we stayed in ever! Weather has been superb and we've enjoyed every minute of our stay and already planning a return visit. We can recommend the Guy Fawkes in for fantastic food-a little pub opposite St Michael Le Belfry Church by the Minster -still lit by gaslight and also a Cafe at No 8 on Gillygate -but book ahead for this one. For all you "girly" girls you've got to go to the Rosie Muggles on Stonegate and not to be missed is Jo Malone's-also on Stonegate. Thank you Ellen for everything-the welcome hamper was a lovely thought. We'll be in touch for a return visit!
