Other Things to Note
If coming from the station Please use bus number 10 from York station to my place. Get off at millfield avenue/matmer house stop. Thankyou!
Ian is a friendly bloke and took a genuine interest in my conversation. The flat is about 15 mins walk from York and about 20 mins from the University which was perfect for my needs (Academic conference). Nearby are a supermarket, a pub and a park.
Beyond the call of duty - Ian supplied sheets for my daughter for the last two nights at her student housing. Very kind. The place as tidy as before.
I spent 4 days at Ian's lovely flat, then 5 days elsewhere, and then came back - and it was like coming home! Both experiences were pleasant and comfy and came with a warm welcome and interesting conversations.
Very nice host, when we arrived at his place, he was so welcomed, and picked up us from bus station, so it's easy for us to find. Although, it's not located in city center, it has convenient transportation.
Ian was amazingly warm and welcoming, not to mention helpful and accommodating. The room is indeed bright and spacious, and the rest of the apartment is also delightful. There is a bus to city center nearly at the door, if you don't feel like taking the walk. I was visiting folks who live on the University campus and it was a pleasant 15 minute walk to their digs. All in all, a lovely place to stay if you are visiting York on a budget.
Ian's place is really well-situated for visiting the centre of the city (15 mins walk) and the university (about 5 mins), so it was just what we wanted.
Ian gave us all the info we needed as well as a very friendly welcome. He was very generous with his offer of the use of his kitchen and living room, but we were only there for one evening and keen to see York! The room (and whole apartment) is clean and tidy and we really appreciated him not only offering to pick us up something for breakfast when he went shopping, but putting out a great selection, ready for us, after he had gone off to work in the morning. A really nice touch.
As well as being handy there was also free parking behind the flat - quite a boon in York.
Ian is true to the spirit of AirBnB which is to allow someone to make use of the space in your home, make them feel welcome, entirely independent, and trusted.
Ian is a really nice and easy-going person. I had wonderful days at Ian's place. He came out to met me and help me carry the suitcase after I got off the bus. And he was so welcoming that made me feel like I was visiting an old friend. His place is very lovely, and the room is as lovely and clean as the photos. It's easy to walk from Ian's place to city centre, and there are many shops and restaurants, even a supermarket nearby. The day I checked out was Sunday, so the bus 10 didn't come frequently. Ian suggested and walked me to another bus stop to get to the train station. I really appreciate that. Ian and his place are highly recommended!
