“Perfect place for a stay in York”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Very comfortable flat in Central York. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything you we need to make yourself at home. Maggie was super thoughtful and even had my favourite sparkling water in the fridge. The mattress is super comfy, I slept really well. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend others to as well. Thanks Maggie! Sandra

“Holiday Visit”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Maggie and Mike were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome. They were very generous with their wonderful welcome pack. The place was spotless, with plenty of towels and bed linen should we need them. We would definitely recommend to other people to stay at this apartment. Thank you very much Maggie and Mike!

“Lovely apartment in great location”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Apartment was well equipped and located. Ideal for a couple. Maggie, the owner, was very helpful and met us at the apartment on arrival to go through how everything worked. Would happily return and hope to do so.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This apartment could not be faulted. It was clean, tidy with all the facilities one would expect and the location was excellent for a visit to York. The welcome from Maggie both before and during arrival was exceedingly warm and informative and the care with which she put together the welcome pack and all the other touches showed a genuine thoughtfulness towards her guests.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

When we decided to return to York it was a given we'd stay at Emperors Wharf. We enjoyed our second visit as much - if not more - than our first. Maggie's attention to detail and concern for her guests is exemplary. If you have the opportunity to stay in this flat seize it tout suite! Perfect location, well equipped with everything you need. It is simply the best of York.
