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

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...

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

Helpful and informative staff when we booked. B&B is within a reasonable walking distance from railway station, although you do have to walk up and down the steps of a footbridge over the Ouse. Warm welcome on arrival and shown to a well appointed, good size bedroom. Bathroom bigger than most places we've stayed. Bedroom nicely furnished with TV, usual... More

I have just returned from a weekend away in York and am very impressed with this hotel. The river is less than 5 minutes away and in less than 10 minutes you are in the city centre. Room very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and freshly prepared. Very nice hotel and am planning to return later this year. Would... More

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
