RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Superb! classy, comfortable & contemporary.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Our family are repeat visitors to Bootham bolt hole, enough said! Well ok, the reviews have to be a minimum 100 characters. Lol. Love the location. Short walk to the Minster/river and the sights of York. lovely apartment that our family of 4 always enjoy, the main bed is top quality and even the sofa bed is surprisingly good. This has the usual holiday rental key safe, handy so not stuck to ridged check in/out times. This property is as it says in the description, nestled in a quiet backwater, has a free off street reserved parking bay. We have stayed in other flats in York but we have found them noisy if right in the centre and parking was up to ?12 per 24hrs so adds up over the week also you have to drive round looking for a space. Not a worry with the bolt hole. I know this is the owners actual holiday home, we find that reassuring as they would want everything to be just right for when they stay. A genuine home from home. The fixtures are all good quality and are clearly expensive, (I love the wardrobe), the TV is a large curved screen Samsung smart internet type. Good for Netflix. The dinning set is the trendy industrial style. The bathroom is gorgeous and the shower is amazing. The owners have always been very approachable, friendly & happy to give recommendations etc. Their advice to visit Helmsley, Sutton bank, Goathland and Whitby was spot on. We definitely highly recommend & do so to our Friends & family. We are already booked again for our next trip. Now that?s enough said!

Absolutely superb accommodation & location
Central location with a 5 minute stroll through the museum gardens, river bank or Bootham to the centre of York. Easy check in/out with a key safe, awesome waterfall shower (i could stay in it all day), free allocated parking saves a fortune in York, very comfortable, classy, light and airy. Close enough to the attractions yet just tucked away in a peaceful leafy lane. No lift but only two flights of stairs so no problem for us. every thing you need, free tea & coffee, 40" smart TV, free wifi, comfortable beds. Highly recommended. One of the best self catering accommodation properties we've stayed in.

Fantastic property, location and owners
The Bolt Hole is 10 min walk from the City Walls so there is no need for your car once you have parked up in the reserved space in the car park behind the building. From the moment we were greeted by the owners to leaving we could not fault the place. Janine and Chris explained everything to us and were a phone call away if needed. We didnt need them as it was perfect. The rooms are immaculate with everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. We used the day bed and pull out bed too which were more than adequate for us all and had excellent nights sleep. The shower was amazing. There was enough hot water for the four of us. We stayed for a week as we got married in the beautuful City and Janine and Chris made our stay extra special. This accommodation is so much nicer than a lot of Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts we have stayed in over the years in York and we have stayed in a lot. We hIghly recommend staying here. It is quiet, has everything you need and the perfect place to either just relax or take a walk into the City to sightsee. Thank you for having us. We will definately be booking another stay with you in 2018 ... hopefully our first Wedding Anniversary

Comfortable for two, not four!
Bootham bolt hole is situated in a great location. It is decorated nicely, has a lovely view of the Minster, great shower and bright due to the large windows. I came to the bootham bolt hole to relax with my mother and daughter on holiday and to re charge from a stressful job. We accepted that it was a set up in the living room second bed, however, after one night on the camp bed my lower back ached. We realised that the bed was an occasional day bed and not geared up for a weeks sleep for an adult. (Perhaps for children). After two nights broken sleep, I felt very disappointed that my holiday would not provide what I would expect as a fundamental. Further to this, we were lucky to get two hot showers, leaving the third person to endure a cold shower in the morning. I am a keen runner and had planned to go running in the evening, followed by a shower but we soon realised that the hot water was not available the guest book said if it ran out "not to worry there will be plenty more in the morning!". (The apartment said it sleeps four but one of us endured a cold shower every day) this was on top of broken sleep from a below average bed. When I asked the owner to consider my views, he was defensive and suggested I should try a five star hotel! I think a good night sleep and a hot shower is a basic requirement even in basic hotels/apartments! I suggested that he changes his advertisement to a two bed apartment, which would be perfect for guests. As it stands it is all about making money and not about a guests comfortable holiday. Time that is precious and you can't get back. I didn't want any compensation (we were offered ?50 off if we returned) but I wanted him to change his advert to two beds to save other guests from the same experience. I note nothing has changed. You will see from the pictures that we had nowhere to put our stuff, the type of bed I endured for a week, the guest book note about showers. The key safe is a nail breaker, the owner knows this, he said his wife breaks nails but yet he still thinks it's okay to offer that to guests. I think you get my point. Shame as it would otherwise be a great apartment.

Stunning contemporary apartment. Faultless. The location is perfect as so close to all attractions. Allocated parking space a real boon. The owner spent quite some time talking to me the night before our holiday to make sure I was happy. When I explained some plans we had for the holiday he gave me lots of helpful tips. His email contact prior to the holiday was also prompt and super helpful.
