Lovely Apartment - we had a fantastic visit. Our host was great - communication was very prompt. The location is ideal - close to everything! We hope to return to York and would certainly love to stay here again!
Cocoa Loft was a really nice studio and well set out. The shelving units were great for dividing the lounge from the bedroom. I would definitely stay in this studio again. The studio also had a parking space in the car park which was very useful.
A fantastic place for a lovely weekend away with friends. Immaculate and well appointed. Lumby Hall is in a beautiful spot and enjoys easy access to Leeds, York, Harrogate and the surrounding countryside.
This apartment was even better than our expectations. Not only was it very comfortable and spacious, it has amazing views of York Minster. Another bonus was the large patio with a large table and chairs for six people out there. There is also a smaller balcony with a view looking at the Minster, which is lovely for morning coffee. The location is like a quiet sanctuary right in the middle of the bustle of Blake Street. At the same time everything is within a short walking distance....restaurants, shopping, etc. We couldn’t have been more pleased with an apartment and would highly recommend a s...more
I stay here regularly. Its clean, comfortable and convenient. The staff at Stays are a pleasure to deal with.
Snooker days can be long when you are working so a nearby, comfortable flat is such a bonus. Less than ten minutes from the venue, or if you want to pop into busy York again just a few minutes. The flat was very comfortable, clean and welcoming. So much so we have booked it again for next time.
Excellent stay. The apartment had everything that was required for a comfortable stay and more. If we return to York we will definitely stay there again. Owner couldn’t have been more helpful. Location was ideal and private parking was a huge bonus.
A perfect place to stay while visiting York. It is a lovely apartment and the owners made me feel very welcome. Hopefully, I will stay there again on my next trip. I have no criticisms at all.
The location of the property is excellent. The appartment is spacious and very comfortable.And I would have no hesitation in recomending the property to others.
This is a stunning place, super modern and well equipped. The only thing we wondered about was a lack of microwave which would have been useful with our catering. Location is only 3 miles outside York, good links to get in. But what a place for a family get together!
A modern, comfortable apartment in a quiet spot, with easy access to York centre and Sainsbury's. Very helpful and accommodating staff on the phone.
I absolutely loved staying in this apartment. It's close to the City and is extremely comfortable. It's also beautifully furnished.
Never doubt to stay again! Close to town and with plenty of choice of restaurants. Pleasant apartment to stay !
Beautiful flat, with everything you need! Modern, clean and a great location. I was very comfortable during my 1 month stay. Comments/Recommendations: 1. Need clear instructions for the washer/dryer. All foreigners are not familiar with the combo washer/dryers. 2. Hot water runs out before 2 showers back to back are complete.
Stayed in 2018 and immediately booked for this year. David, the owner met us both times,and was a mine of useful information regards York's attractions and food scene. The premise was spotless both times, it's well equipped with everything you could need and is an oasis of peace on a busy day when you step from the busy street's to the tranquility of the appartement. Most people have no idea that it's there and on both occasions when family have visited York have been amazed when they been to the property.It also has a car parking space within 5 minutes walk which is handy if you also want to ...more
everything just fell into place Alison met us at the apartment early which was very helpful all in all lovely apartment ideal situation
What a find, in the heart of York but feels secluded, very clean and modern, stayed with another couple but rooms far away from each other to be private. Will definitely be booking again
We were very very satisfied with the service of Stays York and the house. The people of Stays are very good professionals. The house was excellent. We will repeat with them.
We stayed for three days at Castle Chambers and could have stayed much longer. The apartment was stylishly contemporary, clean and had everything we needed. Its location is so convenient and within walking distance of EVERYTHING. There are a number of parking options, also within walking distance. We are planning a second visit in the coming months!
Very happy with the stay. No complaints. Excellent location and service. Pricey but otherwise a good stay.
A brilliant stay - all amenities and so close to the city centre. Loved it! Very clean and excellent quality.
I had a long stay in this house. Almost two months, so finally I felt at home. The house is perfect for 2 people. Also has plenty go natural daylight. The location is so good that a car is not necessary to visit York city center. Also there are 2 Sainsbury very near. One in Bishopthorpe and the other one in Blossom Street. The kitchen has almost everything. I just missed a squeezer. I am 162 cms tall, not a tall woman, but I hit my head many times in the bedroom the first week. And Stays York is a very reliable company. They were always willing to solve some details. Things that c...more
Clean, comfortable and cosy cottage, well located on the outskirts of York. Quick and easy bus into town. Good pubs within walking distance. Well equipped cottage with all the essentials.
We were fortunate to be there in lovely weather but the apartment was unbearably hot. We didn’t have the heating on! It was too hot to sleep but we couldn’t open the bedroom windows as there was so much noise in the street till all hours of the night. That of course is not the fault of the accomodation which was wonderful. Loved having the washing/ drier machine as were traveling for many weeks.
enjoyed are stay but have problems with Hot water and heating. could not get the heaters to stay on and we had no hot water on the Saturday night when getting ready to go out for dinner. need more user friendly guides.
Only negative - liquid soap in kitchen & bathroom were nearly empty ! Shoud have been full. Not enough big bags for the little kitchen bin.
We greatly enjoyed staying at this apartment. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use and the bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. Mark and Liz were very friendly and helpful at our arrival and provided plenty of information about how everything in the apartment worked.
The cottage was perfect for our stay, beautifully kept and well equipped. The welcome hamper of tea, coffee,biscuits, juice, wine, bread, butter and jam were unexpected but very welcome, thank you. It was only a 5-10 mins walk to the centre and plenty of great restaurants to try. Our first visit to York but certainly won't be the last. The station was close and there was also parking outside on the quiet street with a permit. I can recommend the Minster tour, which takes about an hour but well worth it and so informative. We also went to the Castle museum, spent about 3-4 hours here, cafe in t...more
Good location and neighbours were friendly. Well equipped kitchen especially and place was spotless. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would recommend the premises. I’m sure Stays are aware of the minor repairs which need attending to but happy to provide a list, if required.
lovely place we would stay again without hesitation . do make sure you use your car park pass though .
excellent all perfect we think to find a very good apartment near the station and near the center of the town and we find it with all the comforts.
The accommodation was excellent. Couple of issues need to be addressed. Better description of how to adjust the heating system. Better description as how to lock the front door. We needed to ask the neighbours for instructions
We stayed for a week while I was doing some work in York. The property was an excellent choice. I had stayed in another apartment on my prior visit, but this was much more spacious. The building is converted and looks really pretty. Set over 3 separate floors plus a laundry room really does give a great sense of space. Short walk to the city centre and a sainsburys nearby made for excellent convenience. Highly recommended for the price.
Good, clean flat in a great location. Very easy to deal with and well-organised host . Can get a bit noisy in the evening at weekends but as expected really for a central York location.
We love staying in 1 Bed apartments at the The Bay Filey. Some apartments are dated and run down but 16 Parade was in good general all around condition.
I loved my stay at Minster Loft. The view of the Minster was incredible. The apartment itself was lovely, cosy and well equipped. The location couldn't have been any more central to everything York has to offer. I will return just as soon as I can.
We really enjoyed our 3 week stay in York. The house is very well located, well equipped and was more than big enough for the 4 of us and our dog. Thank you !
I previously stayed in the Cocoa Loft and then moved to No 9 due to lengthening my stay. After staying in the Cocoa Loft I was disappointed with No 9. The layout was very different and the sofa was different to the pictures - not a huge problem. The studio was in good condition although the heating wasn't working. However, Chris/Rachel from Stays York ensured the heating was fixed the next day and were very helpful. No 9 wasn't laid out the same as the Cocoa Suite because it was a different shape. However, it wasn't as cosy and didn't have the same facilities e.g. no iron/ironboard etc. There ...more
I always like to stay here when I am working in York - it is comfortable and convenient. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, its clean and close to the town and office. The staff at Stays (Anne and Chris) are very nice and pleasant to deal with. They always respond quickly and politely to any issues raised. I have a few concerns about security - on the past two occasions there have been mix ups over keys. This time a strange man entered my apartment by mistake which was quite frightening (it was soon sorted out and my fears were allayed by speaking to Chris on the phon...more
We stayed for a week and loved it. Parking wasnt always easy and no disabled bays near accomodation apartmen. The apartment although only one bedroomed was large enough for us and 2 young people aged 11. Apartment was in need of decorating and sprucing up a little but we all have wear and tear. I wish there had been internet as we couldnt research where we wanted to go. I think a folder with leaflets of things in the area would be good. Overall I wouldnt hesitate in going back.
This was our 15th stay at this property over the last 6years or more it is very good value for money
We have stayed in various rental houses around this area and St Olaves was one of the best. Very spacious with plenty of sofa space and everything that you would need provided. High quality fixtures and fittings throughout and even Virgin media on the Tv with BT sports and Netflixs. Ideally located just a short walk from the city centre and riverside with a sainsburys local just around the corner.
Great place for our family of five. Perfect location near to train station and all the museums that York has to offer.
Stayed at woodspring last year and really loved it everything catered for clean and cosy, had problem with heating when first arrived rang office sent someone round within 10 mins to put it right. Excellent service,also tea coffee etc for our arrival. Have recommend this this place to friends and family, and we are going back again later In the year.
A convenient location, comfortable house, wonderful kitchen. Some bedrooms a little small, we only had one person in each room. Had a leak in one bathroom which was sorted immediately, very good service.
Booked for 4 adults but twin room disappointing as bed sizes seemed small. Easy level walk into town so met our needs well. Being a townhouse there are lots of stairs. Having 2 bathrooms very handy and we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the garden at breakfast time. Good stay
This is a spacious, comfortable flat in a very good location. There's a lovely view across a park out of the living room window and it's just a 15-minute walk across the river bridge to York Minster. The apartment block as a whole was well maintained and was staffed by a helpful concierge. Having a free parking space in the city centre was a real bonus! The flat itself was not without small niggles (wear & tear), but we reported these to the management company to remedy ahead of the next visitors arriving.
Loved everything about the flat. Two things I wasn’t happy about. One is my booking was initially confirmed for another flat which showed it was available on HomeAway then the owners cancelled saying the property was already booked by someone else. Second time I booked this property it got confirmed and again it got cancelled by the owners saying there was a problem with the scheduling. Ultimately they gave me the property for a day less than I wanted. Other than that the check out time being 11 am was not convenient but that’s their rule so I guess acceptable.
Excellent location to city center. Parking was easy. The house when first walking in feels like the owners have just walked out the door. Their personal belongings are all over the house from clothes to mail and files of paperwork. When you read the handbook all the rules of what you can and can't do were explained in a nice way but these should be explained when booking.. Any cupboard or door with red spots your not allowed to be used which is OK but empty your clothes out the wardrobes you can use. Not allowed to sit on the chair in the master bedroom to do your make up, so provide one...more
Lovely house in the centre of York, great location and close to the Minster and shops. The only downside is the noise at night from the 24 hour Mc Donald's opposite. Very spacious, comfortable and well equipped spread over 3 floors. Would highly recommend it if you don't mind stairs and a bit of noise! We've stayed there 3 times now!
Cant beat the price of stays york/skelwith aartments on the bay filey. Pet friendly too! If you want uber luxury pay for it! If you want great value in good clean light and airy accomodation book one of their apartments like i do regularly with my dog to chill out from work.
We stayed at 9 Woodspring for a few days to get away,as we have stayed at this accommodation before,location great we love the bay and we love value for money.great apartment brill location,comfortable bed and clean at a great price.will defo use again
The whole site was lovely, unfortunately the furniture in our apartment was uncomfortable. Will hopefully return.
Filthy carpet - a hoover that was full of previous guests. rubbish - no toaster - an unusable iron - a tv that vibrates if you put the sound up - worst of all a settee that could not be sat on for more than 5 minutes without causing discomfort. Although some issues were redressed this took time and numerous phone calls. We also had an oven that had never been cleaned - disgusting. This was sorted but my point is guests should never be allowed in unless these have been checked. Housekeeping is clearly a serious issue.
We liked our stay in York. Beautiful city and many things to do and to see. We even liked the house. But when we came back home we received an email that we had damaged a chair which we did not. But we had no proof so we did not get back the deposit we had paid. This felt really bad and we were so disappointed, that we do not have good memories anymore.
