Over the years, our past guests have provided very welcome feedback and comment following their stays at 7 Aspire. Although we readily accept direct bookings, we have always advertised with some of the global rental listing sites, each of whom operate their own review systems.
Reproduced below are the recent reviews and comments provided to such sites, in addition to comments provided in our own guestbook.
Although we offer our most competitive pricing here on this website, we accept that some guests, for various reasons, prefer dealing with global brands. For this reason we continue to advertise with such websites, and willingly accept the acknowledgement such sites provide to their top-performing holiday rentals.
Accordingly we are proud of the Superhost status awarded to us by Airbnb, the Certificate of Excellence 2018 awarded by TripAdvisor, and the 5-star rating awarded by Google.
Lovely space, thoughtfully equipped—and a fantastic location. Would definitely stay there again!

Just an amazing location and superbly appointed apartment!
One of the Nicest Places
This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in a fabulous position so close to the city and with parking as well. We would love to come and use it again. We all loved the 3 D television and DVD’s when we got back from touring York.

David’s place would have to be one of the best if not the best we have stayed in on our 6 week adventure. Everything you need is supplied and we enjoyed having TV’s in the bedrooms especially! Plenty of hot water and heating is great. We would stay again if visiting York again!
