Excellent base for our stay in York, 10 minutes walk form the town and I am in my sixties, if you didn't want to go into York itself, Pubs, Restaurant and Coffee Shops close by, In the room there was tea coffee facilities, television hair dryer all you really wanted but the best thing was the comfortable bed and the...

Only there for one night but would definitely stay again. Lovely accommodation, good location and really enjoyable breakfast. All at a good price too compared to other hotels available when we booked. Breakfast is delivered to the room which we found very relaxing and a nice change to sitting in a dining room. Lots of nice touches which made it... More

This was my second stay in this lovely B&B. The owners/staff are incredibly responsive, and the cleaning is impeccable. I stayed two nights, left everything in a mess the first morning, and came back to a spotless room. And, of course, the breakfast is delicious. Exactly, what you need when you're away from home.

A great place to stay - small enough to be personal, but never intrusive. Rooms are large enough, well appointed and with comfortable beds. The breakfast, delivered to the room, is a great way to start the day. Easy walking distance to pubs and restaurants, and a 15 minute walk from the Centre of York.

York was the destination of a course and conference that I was attending. Hotels appeared to be relatively far away from where I needed to be and on the expensive side. I came across this B&B and decided to take a punt.. and glad that I did. It's a pleasant 15 minute walk from the train station or around a... More

Stayed here friday-sunday for my boyfriends birthday. First thing that needs commending is the service from Ruth. I booked the trip as a surprise for my boyfriend and she was amazing at helping me organise it. She gave me recommendations on what room to stay in and emailed me with restaurant recommendations. I sent her a birthday banner which she... More

We stayed at The Staymor in the City from 4-7 June, in room 5, which is themed 'Betty's tearoom'. We'd had huge difficulty in finding a B&B that would accommodate us with our baby daughter, but Ruth was so kind and welcoming from our first telephone conversation. We found the Staymor beautifully clean and loved the themed rooms - a... More
