Tucked away in a quiet road but only a few minutes' walk to the city centre, York Minster & the railway station. Barry & Caroline are charming hosts, the accommodation is spotless & comfortable & the breakfasts are delicious - plenty of choice & beautifully cooked. Everything you need for a city break or as a base to travel further... More

Stayed at St Marys for 3 night break with friends recently never been before but extremely pleased , the staff very friendly and helpful , the rooms very comfy but some slightly smaller on second floor and breakfasts very good for choice and quality . Quite close to centre with a nice walk along river bank, will definately stay again

Just returned from another enjoyable stay at our favourite guest house and as usual everything was wonderful. First class food, comfort and staff who go the extra mile for us. Many personal touches by Barry and Caroline (a bucket of hot soapy water and two cloths to clean the bird muck of our car) on the day of our departure.... More

Don't think... More

We chose St Marys because of the location and the previous guest reviews. The room was spotless and comfortable and we had great service at breakfast time from the lovely Caroline who was so friendly and attentive to guests. Breakfast menu had a good choice and I particularly loved the option of having fresh fruit salad with yoghurt instead of... More

Having heard bad things from colleagues about the TravelLodge (noisy and dirty) and Novhotel I decided to try a guest house instead and fortunately for me the first I tried didn't answer the phone so I ended up on this place at random. What a find. Absolutely spotlessly clean, good sized shower with plumbing that works, very quiet location so... More

We stayed at St Marys because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed, our room was spotless and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was great and the fresh fruit salad option to choose instead of cereal was lovely touch. Only a 10 minute walk into the centre of York along the river, we will definately be... More
