“Wonderful central location”
Reviewed 13 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Another wonderful stay at number 26. Sheena provides all home comforts and more in this lovely centrally located flat. You are just a short walk from all that York has to offer, shops, restaurants, museums and lovely walking along the river or on the city walls.

“Great location--walk to everything!”

A comfy apartment with everything we needed (including a tempting, delicious lemon cake!) that was within walking distance of the Minster, Jorvik, the Shambles, and everything else we wanted to see.

One tip: the apartment faces the road and is mostly quiet, but if you're used to very quiet surroundings (I live in the country, so all I usually hear are crickets and owls), you may want earplugs to cut down on the occasional truck noise or bunch of people conversing at street level.

Great place to stay and we'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

“Brilliant stay”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Great location for exploring York. Sheena's apartment feels like a home rather than a rental apartment. Every need is catered for and the added 'goodies' and the warm welcome are a lovely touch. If you are thinking if visiting York we can definitely recommend a stay here.

“Better than 5 star boutique hotel”
Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

From the minute Sheena met us it was brilliant, shown to apartment and it was amazing fresh flowers in bedrooms bathroom lounge, birthday cake, bottle of prosecco and loads of other goodies, toiletries amazing, felt like we were in a spa with her shower gels, we used as bubble bath as we had been doing plenty of cycling, very luxurious with a glass or two of gin, thank you Sheena. Location was brilliant right on river, we had booked cruise across from apartment, afternoon tea and two hour cruise, well worth the money booked through yorkexcursions and got deal for 16 quid each instead of 24. We Defoe want to go back and hope Sheena will have us again, very stylish want her to come to mine and help with interior design lol. Thank you for everything Sheena

“Awesome apartment, great location, perfect hostess!”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The apartment itself is in a perfect location, within walking distance to all attractions. It was very clean and very well stocked. Sheena was a great hostess, waiting for us to arrive, explaining everything we needed to know. The little touches of having the basics available upon our arrival was excellent and the fresh flowers were a perfect touch. We truly enjoyed our visit and would not hesitate to book here again if we return to York. Thank you Sheena for making our visit to York an exceptional one! Bev and John
