Flat 33, grubby, stained table, noisy, resembled student accomodation rather than luxury holiday flat. Would not recommend this to anyone. There are hundreds of wonderful places to stay in York, this isn't one of them.

I stayed at Flat 59 for about 2weeks. The location of the flat was excellent, as it was in the city centre and was easy to get to anywhere without using public transport. The flat itself was of a unique design and was spacios. It was clean and tidy with the provision of all the necessities. Betty - the landlady... More

We found flat 61 clean, very well equipped and confortable for the two of us. It was cleaned and serviced each week during our stay.. We are in our sixties and we found the bed particularly good and it prompted us that we need to renew our bed at home. The flat is within comfortable walking distance to the station,... More

My partner and I stayed in Flat 61 for a week in July 2011. First of all I would like to say we absolutely loved this flat and looked forward to returning to it every evening after a long day of activities as we found it very homely and comfortable. Upon entering the flat a staircase leads up to the... More

Upon looking at Bettys website, the pictures of the flats all looked great, so we booked for a week in June 2011. When we arrived the car-park was dereilict with an overflowing bin, we were taking across the road to Flat 59. We had to walk up a very narrow staircase into the living area, the flat was unclean and... More

On arrival, we were very impressed with the location (33 Portland Street flat) - 3 min walk from a Sainsbury's Local and only 5 min walk from Yorkminster and the Shambles. The living / kitchen area and bedrooms were very spacious and a great array of cooking utensils was provided. Always nice to have a dishwasher as well :) Unfortunately,... More

We stayed at Flat 33 which was much smaller, grubbier and tired than expected from the website. The bedrooms were as expected but with single glazed windows and only blinds they were quite noisy (as you are very close to town centre, on a busy road and with upstairs neighbours) and not as dark as we would have hoped. The... More

Management response:

We are very surprised and confused by this comment. We have investigated this matter, the cleaning company also feels it is an unfair comment. We have had lots of happy returning guests in this flat. One couple has returned to stay Flat 33 every year for 2 weeks since we started to rent the flat out. However we appreciate your... More

We recently stayed at Betty's York Holiday Flat, in Flat 61. A few improvements have been made since the last review. The entrance corridor is now well lit, and there is a washing maching in the bathroom of the flat, rather than in the entrance corridor. The flat was reasonably nice and well furnished. The kitchen was fully equipped, however... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in flat 61. Secure parking was a real boon. The entrance hall is unprepossessing at best - a dark alleyway with a washing machine in it. The falt was on 2 floors. A basic 3 piece leatherette suite was adequate. A decent 4 seater dining table and a small kitchen but well equipped with... More
