Great central location
Three minute walk away from the Minster. Good Indian restaurant next door. Parking outside the back door. Bats outside the window at twilight. Would go back.
Although the house is over 3 levels and the stairs are open risers, so if you have an issue with stairs and don't like being able to see through them this house takes some getting used to, the main living arrangements are over the second and third level so you're not running up and down as often as you might think. The heating and TV take some getting used to (only because it's freesat, so if you have that already...). I would also advise taking some AAA batteries just in case the remotes run out.
The location is awesome! Literally 2mins walk to one of the main entrances to the walled city of York and once inside most things are within 10mins walk max so most days the car just sat out the back in it's parking space. There is also a Sainsbury round the back of the property which can easily be accessed via an alleyway so, once again, 2mins. The property was clean and well stocked and, although on a main road, wasn't particularly noisy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning.
Weekend on Walmgate
We were very lucky to get a last minute booking for the half term weekend. Throughout the process In York holidays could not have been more helpful and we were very grateful.
The house is great although I was glad it was winter and we could keep the windows to the busy road shut at night. Always so much to do in York and this house is perfect for a day spent walking the walls.
Excellent location, well appointed accommodation, plenty of space for 4 adults
Good accommodation, heating effective in January, as described with equipment stated. Could have done with more crockery and cutlery to make use of dishwasher more efficient. Single bed mattresses not hugely comfortable, probably OK for lightweight kids, not so good for average weight adults! A mattress topper would solve the problem. Otherwise no complaints. Having a parking space is a real bonus too.
Thanks for the review. I will provide more crockery, no problem.
All the beds are being replaced next week. I just haven’t been there to accept them. Hope this helps. Paul
