We have just had a lovely 3 day break. The guest house is situated in a quiet area with private parking which is always a bonus. The staff are really friendly and make you feel welcome. 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

This is the second visit here, last time October 2013 with the same friends. Well as before I can't fault the rooms and the breakfast is just the thing to set you up for the day. I can't recommend this B&B highly enough. We will be back soon for another visit.

I booked St Mary's Guest House because my sister and I needed somewhere near the city centre and four star standard. I originally booked Sunday to Tuesday but had to change to Saturday to Monday. This was no problem and Barry didn't charge us any more, which he could have. The guest house is very clean, comfortable and the room... More

Room 9 is situated at front of building on first floor an was very quiet and peaceful. The local rail line which runs nearby was certainly not a problem noise wise and the location of... More

The double room was very, very small and you couldn't walk around easily. The room was right outside the breakfast room so you encountered a lot of noise. The breakfast times were very regimented. The WiFi code inside the room was wrong so couldn't access internet until the following day when we chanced upon the network and code in the... More
