My family of three had an ideal stay at the York House. Marcus was a very responsive and communicative host. The home is spacious and aesthetically pleasing - our daughter especially loved having her own little space to sleep and play. We had extremely pleasant weather during our stay, so the yard was a nice perk. We thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood of Shepherd's Bush and found it very easy to travel via the Tube to other parts of the city. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the York House again, and would absolutely recommend it to friends and family!

My family of 4 enjoyed staying in this stylish, well-appointed flat. We appreciated that the place had many amenities that our 2-year-old boy would use and enjoy, including many toys and childrens' books, bath toys, a high chair, and a potty. The flat is well-situated in Shepherd's Bush, just a 5-minute walk to the Westfield Shopping Centre, and we had no difficulties finding many bus lines and Tube stations to get us around London. Marcus is a very responsive host who did not hesitate to help us. We stayed in the flat during a particularly cold weather spell and initially had some issues with the heating, but Marcus sent over a handyman to rectify the problem. He also provided us with a baby pram to use during our stay, which made getting around much easier.

We had a marvelous stay. The apartment is very handily located near a Tube stop and bus lines. It's also around the corner from a music school for children that offers drop-in classes. There are no stair gates, but otherwise it is a very charming child friendly apartment with lots of wonderful stuffed animals and a patio with fish for feeding.

We were very pleased with our stay at York House. The flat was perfect for us with our one year old son! Plenty of toys for him to play with, a safe and comfy crib and eating chair, and great bath tub with tub toys. Marcus the host was a delight, giving us a helpful overview of the flat and local area when we arrived and even leaving us some snacks. Solid location in a hip neighborhood, with easy tube access to central London. I would absolutely stay here again.
