Excellent location, on a quiet street just a 10 minute stroll by the river to Lendal Bridge, and the Minster. Price better than most other places in York. Clean, good breakfast, free wifi and an hospitable host all contributed to an excellent weekend.

STAYED for 3 nights from 11/5 to 14/5 and had another great stay at St Mary's thanks to Barry and his staff. It was great to see Caroline again having missed her on our last couple of visits here. Caroline works really hard at making you welcome and really does make breakfast time so enjoyable. There is a great choice... More

This is a lovely, clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay in York. Within walking distance even with your luggage from the railway station and the town centre. Breakfast was very well presented and a varied choice. Barry was warm and welcoming.

Just had another lovely stay. We had a room on the front this time and could see the Minster. The room was clean and fresh as usual and a good breakfast provided. Barry and Caroline are so friendly and as we have a similar business we have many stories to share. Thank you both, hope to see you again soon.
