“felt more like a real home than a rented place”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent two delightful weeks at Gillygate Central . Our access to the premises, both the house and the garage, thanks to the clear instructions provided, went without a glitch. The car (445 cm. long) fitted in perfectly with even a few inches margin. The apartment, we just loved it! Over the years we have stayed at many rented houses in Britain and we must say that this tops them all. My wife was speechless at the care the owners took with all details to make their guests feel welcome and without a need in the world. We hope we can visit again.

“Excellent location, lovely flat”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We really enjoyed our stay in Gillygate. Its very central and handy for lots of the great things to do in York - Jorvik, Castle etc etc. The flat is nice and clean, well fitted out and fine for our family of four (a bit cosy!). Had a great stay!

Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The flat is lovely and has a great location in the middle of historic York.
The flat has great facilities and a massive clock!
Lynne and Mike are fantastic hosts and were on hand to give helpful advice and top tips for must sees in York.
I will definitely be visiting again!

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a superb newly renovated apartment with quality fixtures and fittings. It is very comfortably furnished, very clean, well lit and, with it being a basement apartment, it is refreshingly cool for hot days. I think it will be nice and toasty in winter months too.
We were very grateful for the bread, milk and butter on our arrival....not forgetting the nice bottle of wine too! THANK YOU
The central location is ideal for walking the wall and seeing tourist attractions such as York Minster, Yorvik Viking Centre and the Chocolate Story as well as being close to many pubs, cafes and restaurants.
We loved our stay and will definitely be rebooking when we revisit York.
Thank you again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Thank you for your positive review and I am delighted you liked the place such a lot. You called it basement - we call it lower ground - but we are not going to fall out about that!! You would be very welcome back any time.

“Excellent, modern and clean accommodation”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lynne, the owner of the property located on the lower level of a Victorian house was there to meet and greet us when we arrived. Lynne made sure we knew where everything was in the apartment. The apartment is modern, well furnished and sparkling. She welcomed us with a bottle of bubbly which was great after our long journey. The apartment is located in an ideal location close to the main train station, Museum gardens, the York Minster, beautiful shops and traditional English pubs. Everything you need in town is a short walk away.

“Fantastic apartment, absolutely faultless”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a great stay in this recently renovated, spacious apartment. With a full-size kitchen and nearby supermarket it's nice to have the option of dining in after a busy day sightseeing in York. There are two brand new TVs, decent strength free wi-fi and a state-of-the-art bathroom. All the comforts of home and more! The separate bedroom at the rear of the property was very quiet and you won't find a more comfortable bed.
Gillygate is very central to all the attractions, restaurants and nightlife York has to offer. Everything, including the station is within walking distance. You really don't need a car to explore the city from here.
