This week we invited Andy ‘the average golfer’ from Teeuplo and Liam ‘the people’s golfer’ from Golf Vlogs UK to come to York and experience a golfing break. This provided the guys with the perfect opportunity to bring their camera equipment and drone to record more of their increasingly popular course vlogs.
We provided accommodation at StayCity in Paragon Street in York City cente, situated next to the Barbican Centre which is host to a number concerts and events such as the UK Snooker Championships. They each had a one bedroom apartment which featured a kitchenette, private bathroom, free WiFi which came in handy for their social media and video editing, and the usual amenities like flat screen television, hairdryer etc.
Here is a view of the hotel from the outside. They have only been open a year but due to positive reviews on the likes of TripAdvisor is proving very popular. It’s in a great location just outside the city’s bar walls making it a quick walk to the main attractions of York like the Minster, the Shambles, and all the huge number of bars and restaurants in York.
As you can see from this photo, the rooms are great – spacious and very contemporary in design and furnishing.
It’s not just the rooms which are smart – the reception and bar area continue the contemporary theme. This was the first place we grabbed a beer with Andy and Liam before heading in to York for a few drinks and to show them the sights. This was shortly before the guys decided to film a live stream from Stongate Yard Bar & Brasserie which you can watch here if you missed it:
