Perfect for a weekend away. Barry and his staff made us very welcome from the minute the door was opened. Rooms were immaculate and very comfy. We had a room at the back and didn't experience any noise at all. Breakfast was delicious, cooked fresh and served with a smile. Inclusive parking was a big plus and only a 5... More

Stayed with my partner for two nights and neither of us have a bad word to say about the place. Reasonably priced, extremely friendly hosts, impeccably clean room and ensuite (we were in the loft, room 10), both slept well, perfectly located (5/10 minute walk from the centre), and a lovely breakfast. We will definitely be back ^_^

Stayed here three times now! you get a lovely warm welcome from the owners and the bed and breakfast itself is great. The location is good a little walk along the riverside or through the museum gardens gets you straight into the centre of york. Breakfast is everything you could want. Looking forward to booking again

We're just back from a 4 night stay here and had a very enjoyable stay. St, Mary's is a good base from which to experience York, with less that a 10 minute walk to the Minster and centre of town, along the river, through the park or along the main road. Our en-suite room was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean.... More

The rooms are very comfortable and clean, the breakfast is really tasty and starts your day of well. The walk into town is a... More

Only stayed one night but was very impressed with the friendliness of the people especially Caroline.The cleanliness of the bed room and dining area was excellent. It was a very welcoming place to stay and only a short walk along the river into the town centre. I will be back there next time I need somewhere to stay in York.

Overall very happy with our stay here. Barry the owner was there to greet us when we arrived and helped navigate my car into the very tight parking area! But even though it was tight getting in, it was a definite plus having free, private parking right behind the guest house. Our twin room (no. 7) was very clean and... More
