Not As Described
After fantastic accommodation in Edinburgh and Northumberland we were really looking forward to spending the last two days of our honeymoon in York. But this 'apartment' is not as described and it ruined our stay.



'Ruby Apartment' is in fact a terraced house on a busy main road and is in a generally grubby state. It is neither modern nor spacious which is what we were expecting. It is completely unsuitable for families with young children as the staircase is steep with no safety bannister, the bedrooms open straight onto the stairs and the bathroom is downstairs.



We also had to replace the landing lightbulb as soon as we arrived as the bulb had gone along with two more in the kitchen. There was a very strong smell of cigarette smoke throughout the house and on all our bedding. The plug in air freshener which had been left on failed to mask the musty, smoky odour and made everywhere smell even worse. Attention to detail is poor with cobwebs everywhere, dusty towel rails, dirty carpets and chipped, peeling paintwork.



We could not even use the kitchen as the cooker was filthy and the wooden worksurface was mouldy and ringstained There was no refreshments pack or coffee maker as advertised. No blinds in kitchen or bathroom and broken blind in lounge meant we had no privacy as passers by could see straight into the living room as the front door opens straight onto the pavement.



The bedoom mattress is very uncomfortable, the windows aren't double glazed so it is very noisy at night and the beds 'judder' when lorries go past!.



It is not a five minute walk into town but takes more like 20 minutes, 25 if you go along the river so the house is not as centrally located as we were expecting. As we have got a baby this was really inconvenient and hampered our sightseeing.



There were no keys to window locks so we couldn't secure our stuff when ww weren't there and the landlady came into the house without our knowledge when we were out which was a real intrusion.

York Minster - Landmark

York Minster - Landmark

Distance 0.87 miles (1.4 km)
The magnificent Cathedral in York, known as York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in England. Built in the Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles it is a pure classic of the period. Five hundred and eighteen feet in length, it is two hundred and forty one feet wide at the transept and its central tower rises one hundred and ninety eight feet making it the largest lantern tower in Britain. Bede records that a small wooden chapel was built on this site in 627 A.D. for the baptism of Edwin, king of Northumbria. Edwin's successor Oswald enclosed the chapel in stone and dedicated it to St. Peter, as the Cathedral in York has been ever since.

Distance 1.2 miles (1.92 km)
Clifford`s Tower
North Yorkshire
In 1068, William the Conqueror built a motte-and-bailey castle on the present site of Cliffords Tower in York, to strengthen his military presence in the north. The tower is now the most prominant remaining part of the castle, which was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century. Today, views from the Tower over York show why it played such a key role in the control of northern England.
