Alison's home is just beautiful & in an ideal location. We felt at home and just got on with our weekend, coming and going as we pleased while Alison also just continued with her weekend. She left us little notes to help ourselves to breakfast which was left out for us as well as to have a lovely day. Alison was commutable through messages on air bnb and replied instantly. great experience, suited us to ground and will definitely visit again.
Alison's flat is in a traditional english community, it is very quiet and safe, the flat is cozy and well decorated. It will take no more than 5 min to the center of the old town and the York minster. Alison is a very nice person to talk with. You can take the bus number 13 or 14 from the railway station to trinity methodist church station if you carry heavy luggage, it is the nearest station.
Alison was a lovely and warm host, very helpful before and during my stay. She is very outgoing and makes you feel welcome from the beginning. Her house is very nice and a lot of attention has been put to the interior design clearly. The neighbourhood is quiet but very close to the city centre, and the room is big and comfortable. The bed is great with amazing white crisp cotton sheets! The shower is also great. A good place to stay and a good night's sleep is definitely guaranteed.
If I had to point a downside that would be breakfast- really basic breakfast of brioche and pain au chocolat, tea and coffee, milk and juice. The second morning only the leftovers from the first one (so not enough really!). This is only a small detail but compared to other airbnb breakfasts it was quite poor. I didn't mind much but thought I'd say as I know some people seem to care about these things.
A good experience in general, would recommend. Thanks Alison!
Alison's place is superbly located to explore York, and offers beautifully appointed, stylish accommodation. The room was very comfortable and quiet, and breakfast included in our stay was a nice bonus. Alison is an easy-going host, good with communication.
We had a great stay in York at Alison's flat. The room and bed were very comfortable and we came and went as we pleased. Alison gave us good advice on the local pubs, museums, and walks. She was also kind to leave toast, cereal, tea, and coffee out for us in the morning. I would recommend staying there!
Fantastic host, made us feel really welcome. Fantastic house with all the facilities for a comfortable stay. Fantastic lcoation right on the doorstep of York centre. Added bonus of street parking with permit. Would highly recommend!
