  • "Excellent location to explore the city of York."

    Clean, comfortable and welcoming with supply of tea/coffee etc that lasted the duration of our break. Lots of steps so not for those with mobility issues - but perfect for sitting on one of the two balconies to enjoy views over the city and a tiny bit of the river. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the Woodsmill Quay."

    The location was excellent. Just a short walk to all attractions, shops and restaurants. The bed & pillows were very comfortable. Slept very well. Great facilities, but please include iron, ironing board and hairdryer on website so others don't have to pack them. Would recommend.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. I recently replaced pillows and duvet so I'm glad those worked. A really good point about iron and hairdryer. I'll ask Sykes to include. Property Owner

  • "No proper river view which is suggested in the photos on the site."

    Kitchen hob was very poor and needs to be looked at. Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Very central. Well appointed apartment

  • "Small 3rd floor apartment with view of the river from the bedroom balcony."

    Well placed to walk anywhere in York. We enjoyed our week there. Difficult to find the entrance to drop off point for luggage as all signage high above entrance but got there eventually

    Thank you so much for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The only issue we had was the pillows in the bedroom were far to flat (could do with new thicker ones) and from the picture we thought we would be able to see the river from the balcony but could only see it from the bedroom."

    Thank you so much for your feedback. Although sadly too late for your stay, new pillows and duvet are now in place. Property Owner

  • "Small but comfortable flat in the middle of York, very close to the river."

    On the third floor with no lift so plenty of exercise going up and down! No parking but it was possible to unload the car at the door - we used a secure NCP car park about a fifteen minute walk away.

  • "Lovely apartment, perfect location."

    It was however difficult and expensive to park anywhere (we eventually found a 24hr car park which cost £13/day; residents parking zones are not at all clearly marked and it is easy to get a surprise ticket.) There was no information at all about this with the apartment.

About the location


Leeds 25 miles;

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.

Please note: anyone booking from 16 September 2022 would have a check in time of 5pm due to an appointment beforehand. Please call with any queries.
