Access & Departure

Guests are welcome to drop off luggage from late morning (by prior arrangement).  If departing guests are leaving on the morning of your arrival, the accommodation will be ready around 2.30-3pm.  If we do not have prior guests leaving that morning then access can be earlier.  Check out is normally for 10.30am, luggage may be stored until later.  Guests will be personally welcomed on arrival.

Your apartment will be ready for 3pm at the latest.  If there are no guests leaving that day access can be earlier.  You are welcome to drop off luggage earlier by prior arrangement.  Check out is normally for 10am, luggage can be secured until later by prior arrangement.  


Secure car parking is provided on site for one vehicle.


If arriving by train, The Holgate Suite is about a 3 minute walk from the station.

Booking and Arrival Information

Full details with directions, parking and access information will be sent as part of the booking confirmation.

Are you open all year?

Yes! Stays can be as short as 2 nights or as many as 30 nights.  Guests can arrive any available day.  Please note, however, we do not accept arrivals/departures on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

How central are the apartments?

Just a couple of minutes’ walk from Micklegate Medieval City entrance gate with shops, restaurants, cafes and more to hand.  About a ten minute walk into the very centre of the city.

Is it noisy being in the centre of the city?

York is a bustling and busy city at any time of year as there is so much to see and do but it is rare for anyone to be disturbed by noise.  Even The Minster bells are considerate and don’t ring at night!  The Holgate Suite is in a quiet residential area just outside of the city walls.

Are we likely to feel hemmed in?

The Holgate Suite is located at first floor level in a small and exclusive gated development with lots of natural light flooding through all windows.  The apartment is large, bright and airy so no-one should feel hemmed-in but should instead feel totally comfortable and relaxed.

How accessible are you by train?

York is on the main rail routes between London and Scotland with trains running a few times an hour (2 hrs to London and 2.5 hrs to Edinburgh).  We are also served very well with trains to the west and east, as well as Manchester Airport.  The apartment is just about 3 minutes’ walk from the station.  Call 08457 225 225 for fantastic deals on the East Coast Mainline, particularly first class tickets which, when booked in advance, can be cheaper than the standard price.  Advance tickets can often be purchased cheaper than buying on the day.

If we travel by car where can we park?

Complimentary secured parking is available on site for one vehicle.

I understand York floods regularly, will we be affected?

It does not flood in this area.

How far are the nearest airports and what is easiest transport?

From Canada & the US many flights can come in to Manchester which is nearer than Lon-don.  From here it is a direct train journey of approx. 2 hours to York.  We can also provide details of a local chauffeur, who we and many other guests use, as this can work out al-most as cheap as train fares when there are a few travelling, and certainly more conven-ient.  If flying into Leeds/Bradford from Europe or on the London shuttle you will need to take a taxi to Leeds railway station for a train to York or use taxi/chauffeur all the way to York.

How can we book a break at The Holgate Suite?

The availability calendars are always up to date so check first that the dates you want are available by clicking on the 'availability/search' or 'book' tabs.  Alternatively you can e-mail us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 07746 552478 / 01904 623508. 

If booking your break more than one month in advance you will be asked to pay a 40% deposit.  The balance will be due one month before arrival.  If arriving within the month the full amount will be required upon booking.  Payment can be made by card by using our secure on-line booking page.  Just click on the ‘book' tab and follow the simple process to check availability, place your booking and to pay the deposit or full amount.  We accept all credit and debit cards except Amex, and please note we do not accept cheques, cash or bank transfers.

What happens when we have booked?

If booking on-line you will receive an immediate e-mail confirming your booking and the payment made.  You will then receive a more detailed e-mail with further confirmation of your booking including information regarding access, directions, car-parking etc.  If you have paid a deposit only, you will be sent a secure payment link approximately 5 weeks before your arrival so that your final payment can be made.  Booking by phone will follow the same process.

How do we get the keys?

Arrangements will be made with you closer to the date to confirm arrival time so that your hosts can meet you to show you around and to hand over your two sets of keys.

What time is check-in and check-out?

You can drop off luggage anytime from late morning (and pick up your parking permit if required.)  Your apartment will be ready for around 2.30pm and, if no-one is leaving that morning, it can be earlier by arrangement.  Check out is before 10.30am so that the apartment can be prepared thoroughly between guests but again, guests may leave luggage for later collection, by arrangement.

Do we have to clean up when we leave?

No!  Many self-catering properties ask you to do this or charge separately.  Everything will be spotless when you arrive, and it is the owners' job to make sure the apartment is spot-less again for the next guests.  Obviously you are asked to respect the property and its contents, and to leave it in good order.

Do you accept children?

Certainly.  A cot and high chair and baby bath can also be provided.  There is a covered and locked store area in the gated garden where a pushchair can be stored.

Is this property suitable for wheelchair users?

The property itself is at first floor level with a flight of stairs and there is a walk-in shower (4" step).  So it is marked as suitable for less mobile as long as stairs can be managed.   If a wheelchair is required there is a store area in the gated garden where it can be kept.  We can advise on wheelchair hire etc if required.

Are there any restrictions?

There is strictly no smoking within the apartment or its building.  If smoking in the the garden you are asked to stand away from the windows of other properties.  Also animals/pets are not permitted.  The property accommodates up to four people, children are welcome.  We also do not allow hen and stag parties, or similar, as the property is in a small and peaceful residential building. 

Do you have any hidden charges?

No we don’t.  Only unauthorised use of the phone may be charged (a phone is provided for emergency calls and to contact your hosts if required).  Also any replacement or repair costs for damage during your stay.  This forms part of our terms and conditions so you are advised to read the terms and conditions at our website and to ensure that your house insurance protects you against damage; and you agree to pay any recompense within 4 weeks of departure.

What complimentary goodies do we get when we arrive?

A complimentary drink and delicious Yorkshire treats are provided for your arrival.  You will also find fresh flowers and ample tea, coffee (including de-caff.) milk, sugar and juice for the children.  At an extra charge of £30 you can purchase champagne and chocolates or Yorkshire Fare selection for that special occasion.

Do you have computer access & what TV/entertainment do you have?

Complimentary wi-fi is provided throughout the apartment.  There is a SMART TV with Freeview and Netflix in the living area and a blu-tooth sound system is also provided.  An additional SMART TV with Freeview and Netflix is in each of the bedrooms.
