18 Emperors wharf is a fantastic rental property maintained to the highest of standards. On arrival we were greeted by Richard, who showed us to our parking bay and helped to carry our luggage to the apartment. Richard gave us a detailed overview of the apartment and answered any questions. The apartment was in pristine condition. The views from the apartment are spectacular and would encourage you to spend longer in the living room just watching the world go by. York is a compact city best enjoyed on foot and we were so close to the shops and christmas market.
During our weeks stay, we visited the Jorvik and railway museums and took the York Minster tour.
We were fortunate that the weather was lovely, cold and sunny and we enjoyed walks along the river past Roundtree park and over the Millenium bridge and back down as far as the Kings Arms pub on the opposite quay. The pub is well worth calling in for a drink and to see the wooden post marking the heights that the river has risen to over the years.
While the apartment is expensive for accomodation that only sleeps 3, the standard that it has been maintained and the quality of the furnishings plus the unforgetable views still make it worthwhile.
My wife and I had a very pleasant stay. The apartment is very light, spacious, and is a great place to see York from. Being situated over the river means that there is much activity to see, not just the boats but also the geese on the opposing quai -- a never-ending source of entertainment.
Very nice place. Close to everything. No surprises. I liked the fact that it was right on the river. Very safe neighborhood. We were very comfortable.Thanks for opportunity to stay your home, I'm sure we will be returning.
The only thing I would suggest is to stock the kitchen a little better with some basic items such as spices, sauces, utensils, pots and pans etc.
