“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We booked two rooms for our family of 5. Maria and Sophie rearranged the furniture for our kids so that each had their own bed. Breakfast was delicious too. Maria and Sophie are wonderful hosts and their B&B is perfectly clean with super comfortable beds and nice bath products. We highly recommend this to anyone staying in York!

Room Tip: Ground floor room is great for 3 kids. Upstairs was perfect for a couple. All rooms are quiet.

A gem of an hotel in the heart of York. A perfect location for all the attractions within the Old Walled City, as well as a host of good restaurants along Walmgate. And only five minutes walk from the Barbican Centre. Despite the central location the hotel is in a side road off Walmgate and we found it quiet at night. Sophie and Maria are two sisters who've just taken over the hotel and they couldn't be more helpful. Our room was newly decorated and carpeted with a brand new bed too. The breakfasts were excellent. All in all we'll definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: Several rooms have views of the medieval St Denys church opposite the hotel.

My experience at the St Denys Hotel was brilliant. I have only praise for Sophie and Marie who both went out of their way to make my stay pleasant. Due to an accident, I remained at the hotel for over a week, and Sophie and Marie were cheerful and accommodating every day. My room was spotlessly clean; the breakfasts were tasty; the nights were quiet; and the location is conveniently within walking distance to York's wonderful sights. I even found a wine glass set out for me when I had left a bottle in my room for some solitary evening cheer. Lovely touches like chocolates and tasty tea treats made my day, but above all, the two young women who run the hotel were always gracious and helpful. I hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Recent renovations mean that all the rooms are clean and tastefully equipped.

A very warm welcome, extremely comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast menu, this is a wonderful hotel and very reasonably priced.

Everything ran like clockwork during our stay and there was nothing that was too much trouble for the owners Maria and Sophie, who went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

York is a beautiful place to visit and this is a great hotel from which to explore the city.

Thank you Maria and Sophie for making our stay very enjoyable at St Denys Hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. We will definitely return and look at the refurbishments that are planned.
Wish you all the success with your joint venture.
