Spring Updates 2016

We love spring here at Goodramgate Apartments, and we’re having so much fun welcoming all of our guests, from families, hen parties, tourists from all around the world and even business travellers. Our new reception area has been well received by guests, and our newly refurbished Minster Suite has wowed everyone! (It has remote controlled colour changing lights!) It’s also hen party season and we’ve welcome many hen party groups to our apartments in the last couple of months. Wouldn’t you rather have a whole apartment/ town house for the same price as a hotel room? Who wouldn’t! We’ve enjoyed recent events in York such as the Jorvik Viking Festival and the York Chocolate Festival, and we’re looking forward to The Festival of Vintage and The Yorkshire Fringe! If you’re following us on Twitter, you’ll see that we’re running a competition for guests who book with us during April, check it out here.
