Host review score

We own other highly rated properties in York, but this is by far the most special. York Vista enjoys the most incredible uninterrupted views of York Minster from three dormer windows at the front of the property. The apartment is the entire top floor of Hunter House, a listed building and the tallest in this quarter of the city, and features high ceilings, incredible oak beams and is furnished to the highest standard with high thread count hotel bed linen. The building is located on a site that was within the boundary of the Roman legionary fortress of York. There have been buildings on the medieval street of Goodramgate since the 12th century and although the foundations are older the upper part of the building was rebuilt for Hunter and Smallpage, a firm of furniture manufacturers in 1875.
Welcome to York Vista Hope you enjoy your stay. If you have any queries or issues you can contact us directly. I grew up in York and returned here after living in Australia and the US for many years. It's a greta City - easy to navigate, lots to offer - good food, a ton of history, good movie theatres and the Arts and beautiful architecture with the Yorkshire Dales a stone's throw outside the City.
