My son booked the Staymore York after reading the reviews and we took two rooms. It was a 10 minute walk from the station. When we got there both rooms were clean and the bathrooms spotless and very modern. Rooms are quirky but in good taste. Beds very comfy and there were tea/coffee making facilities What made it stand out... More

Wow, where do I start?! From the initial booking and follow up call from Ruth confirming they received our reservation, to check out this morning, this B&B has been faultless. We booked this a few weeks ago for our wedding anniversary trip to York, and wanted somewhere close to the City Centre, but not bang in the middle, and this... More

My wife and I stayed at the Staymor mid July 2015, we were on the top floor so up three flights of stairs, probably not suitable if you are not too good on your feet, but no problem if you are ok climbing stairs. Ruth the owner was fabulous and would probably locate any elderly or infirm guests on the... More

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

Thank you for your lovely review and for choosing to come and stay with us. It was like having family to stay rather than people we hadn't met before! It was so lovely to have you here and I'm looking forward to next time when the girls take you all clubbing! hugs to you all & have a good summer... 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!
