We stayed at St Denys over New Year (just after the worst of the floods) - the staff couldn't have been more helpful in updating us beforehand and the service was great when we arrived as well. The hotel is lovely; great location, really comfortable room and good breakfast. Totally recommend it.

We had 3 nights at the St Denys as a pre-Christmas break in York, before the floods ! But what a great little hotel. Very friendly staff, an immaculate and very comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Some thoughtful little touches as well like the fridge with fresh milk for the rooms. And for the standard of the hotel a very... More

A really lovely little guest house/hotel very welcoming with good service. The room was nicely decorated but a bit on the small side. However the bed was huge and very comfortable. Good choice at breakfast. The location is perfect a few minutes into town via some nice shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. However the flood did affect Fossgate which is... More

We booked St Deny's for a New Year Break after being impressed by the TA reviews. As we got closer to our stay, the York area suffered extremely bad flooding and we were worried as the area around the hotel was affected. However, Sophie, Maria and Lucy were on hand to answer all my questions and assure me the hotel... More

We stayed at St Denys for a couple of nights and couldn't fault it. The location is excellent and only a 5 minute walk to the shambles, very welcoming and friendly staff who were always around to help. Parking is free and only a few minutes around the corner, I would definitely stay here again. I'd also highly recommend the... More

This family run hotel has very attentive and helpful staff with a true desire to make sure your stay in York is worthwhile. The breakfast is one of the best I have had in a hotel, cooked to order. And the library and garden are excellent places to relax. May appear outside of town centre but is actually at the... More

This is a smallish boutique hotel where the owners and staff offer a great standard of customer service. The property is a converted rectory, and the furnishings are slightly quirky but of a good standard. The cleanliness is excellent and the breakfast is freshly prepared and offers good quality and variety. We stayed in Room 9, which is on the... More

I organised this as a surprise for my husbands 40th Birthday - I therefore, booked the "Grand" room to make it that more special. We were overjoyed by the hospitality of the lovely ladies who made us so welcome. I know the names but will worry if I miss anybody out because they were all brilliant! We had a bath... More
