Perfection from start to finish. We took our mother as an 80th birthday treat and we could not have asked for anything better. Everything that has been said in other reviews is spot on. Ruth, the owner, went that extra mile and not only allowed my 2 nieces to put birthday banners & balloons in mum's room but actually helped... More

Great quirky B & B with a difference. Comfy bed, lovely breakfast served in room, parking permit, very friendly could not have asked for more. Only 20 mins walk into York along Bishy Road which has plenty of little shops, cafes and pubs. Thanks to Ruth and family for a great weekend.

We stayed at the Staymor on the 5/6/15. What can I say about this quirky little Guest house.... Just that everything was perfect! The lady on the phone (Ruth) the owner initially sold it to me as she was such a friendly lady, who made me instantly feel this would be a lovely place to stay.... I wasn't wrong! On... More

Fantastic guesthouse that meets my needs perfectly. The rooms are very comfortable and the bed is so comfy i didnt want to get up. The breakfast was delivered to the room and was better than expected, plentiful and tasty. This is my seventh trip to York and this was by far the most comfortable stay. Big thank you to Ruth...

We arrived on the day of the Tour de Yorkshire and didn't know how we would get to the property with all the road closures. Ruth was incredibly helpful on the phone before and we got there without problem and found a parking space right outside - the parking permit you get with the room is a great help! Although... More

We stayed for one night after a late booking. Communication via email was great, information was very clear and easily to follow. Arrived to a personalised bag of city information on our door, lovely clean room. Perfect little touches such as proper cups and wifi, oh and the breakfast……… fantastic! Unsure at first but really enjoyed everything, going to attempt... More

We stayed at The Staymor on Good Friday for just one night having found it so difficult to find accommodation for a night. Ruth the owner was very helpful and allowed us to stay. We had the family room and my in-laws the king size bedroom which were both very clean and comfortable. We loved the idea of self-check in... More

I stayed here with a friend for a weekend away and we had a great time! The owners of this B&B had thought of everything and were incredibly friendly, which made our stay very welcome and comfortable! Breakfast in bed was a brilliant touch and the food was delicious!!

My husband and I and our 2yr old son stayed at the staymor in York for two nights just before Easter. From booking to check in to exit, we received a service we couldn't fault.
