Overall the guest house is looking dated inside. Our double room lacked any character and It looked very dated and tried but was clean. Cant speak for the other rooms but it definitely needs updating and a more modern look. Breakfast was ok but some of the products used were not good quality. Location is very good with a short...

I happened upon this hotel whilst Googling looking for a quality B&B close to York town centre. For anyone wanting access to the town without using the car - this is the place to stay. Most importantly the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was fine. The B&B is quaint and tastefully decorated and has a comfortable lounge. I will... More

St Mary's is lovely and home-like typical of York's style - yet it has all the comforts and mod-cons of a 4 star guest house. The owner and staff are professional yet friendly and helpful. Many thanks.

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights on our 11 day UK journey. We arrived late afternoon and were a little disappointed that the owner was not there to greet us but we were let in by another, very helpful, tenant. Our room was very small but cozy, very clean and comfortable. The reading light could be improved.... More

This was a nice guest house, in a quiet area of York, but nonetheless an easy walk to the city centre. The owner was friendly and helpful and the room itself was clean. There was no comfy chair in my room, but this was less important as there was a lounge where I sat and read sometimes in the evening.... More

It is in a good position, riverside walk into the town centre and handy for the rail station. We had the kingsize bedroom and bed was very comfy and cosy. We were allowed to leave our bags there early as we were off to the races which was very helpful. The only criticism I had was being told we had... More

We have stayed here on a few occasions in the past 11 years, just returned for another 3 nights stay. This guest house is exceptionally good value, everything from the rooms to the breakfasts are of the highest standards, and Barry and all his staff, especially Caroline, make you feel at home from the start to the end of your...

Stayed with my daughter in large twin room. Located in quiet part of york with easy reach to city. Despite this and excellent previous reviews we sadly just didn't feel comfortable and wouldn't stay again due to ...Breakfast being at 2 specific sittings only - which you had to decide on arrival, quality of food, unable to help yourself to...

We stayed at St. Mary's for five days from Monday 28th. July. We were made to feel welcome straight from the off, as soon as we had parked the car. It's a very pleasant 5 minute stroll alongside the River Ouse into Market Street, and a picture postcard sight of York Minster. There is so much to see and do... More
