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

I love St Mary's guest house; i have stayed 3 times usually for the snooker in York. It is nicely situated in York, a few minutes walk from the centre, and has parking available. The hosts and staff are very welcoming especially if you are a regular. The breakfasts are lovely and staff are very chatty and make you feel... More

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
