In the middle of it all...
The flat is centrally located in York, minutes away from almost everything. The "Minster View" moniker is a bit of a stretch. You can glimpse the Minster out of the back windows, but that did mean it was very close, which was great.
The flat itself was...disappointing. I don't know if the owner was trying to keep the place "period" or what. The four-poster bed was, I'm sorry to say, atrocious. My wife and I sat on the edge and, after climbing out of the "hammock", decided to sleep in separate beds. Sleeping diagonally across the mattress helped some, but I'd have gladly given up the charm of the 4-post for a little back support. The living room furniture was worn and a bit shabby.
The kitchen, while having 26 wine glasses, did not have much else. The pans were old, scratched teflon skillets and the few pots that were there felt cheap. I couldn't find a cutting board. The refrigerator was half-sized. Fine for keeping our milk and butter cold, but the freezer was tiny. A pint of ice cream had to be wedged in sideways.
My wife and I were excited to be located above a book shop...or, when we arrived...over a chiropractor's office. Nothing against the chiropractor, we just felt misled by the pictures. The street is a fairly busy road. While you are in a city and know that going in, the discovery that the street is a direct route to the hospital is a little jarring. There is a small grocery nearby as well as a nice Italian restaurant...and two Vape shops. I never felt unsafe...I'm comfortable in the city, but the flat isn't on a quiet back street. Parking was nearby and secure behind an electric gate.
Getting the keys... I was concerned that, up to the day before we were to go to York, I still hadn't heard how we were to get the keys, or the remote for the parking gate. When I was contacted, I was asked (by someone other than the listed owner of the property) to come to their house to pick up the keys. They were very nice people, but it certainly made for some uneasiness, extra travel and inconvenience on my part.
Family Get Together
Great property for our group of five. Really comfortable flat and we felt at home. Well equipped so had everything that we needed. Great location in York as it’s just outside the city walls. Nearby secure private parking means that you don’t have to think about your car during your stay. We would definitely stay here again.
What’s not to like
I would rate this property higher than 5* if I could. It is large, comfortable and airy. It is just a few minutes walk from any sites you might want to see and very centrally located. The kitchen is fully kitted out and we were able to cook full meals when we wanted to. There is a Sainsbury local around the corner for basics and the M&S Food Hall is about a 10 minute walk. If we’re in York again we would definitely stay here again.
What a terrific Victorian feeling place to stay!
We are a family of 5 who spent 3 nights here in complete comfort. Aside from a bit of street noise in the front bedroom, very quiet and peaceful. Comfy beds, well appointed kitchen, terrific location minutes from everything. Owners were very helpful in getting settled in.
