“Another 1st class stay with the perfect host and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Just returned from another enjoyable stay at our favourite guest house and as usual everything was wonderful. First class food, comfort and staff who go the extra mile for us. Many personal touches by Barry and Caroline (a bucket of hot soapy water and two cloths to clean the bird muck of our car) on the day of our departure. 22 years on from our first visit back in the Christmas of 1992 and St. Mary's has become a home from home for us, we simply love everything about it. Barry and Caroline treat every guest, new or old with equal friendliness and courtesy. Great location, first class treatment. Simply love it.

Room Tip: First class guest house with lots of personal touches, you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be a first class b&b with a really friendly staff ,nothing is too much trouble, spotlessly clean very comfortable rooms, lovely breakfast and convenient location just a 5 minute walk along the river to the town centre and very reasonable room rates considering how close it is to everything.
Don't think twice before booking here just do it!

We chose St Marys because of the location and the previous guest reviews. The room was spotless and comfortable and we had great service at breakfast time from the lovely Caroline who was so friendly and attentive to guests. Breakfast menu had a good choice and I particularly loved the option of having fresh fruit salad with yoghurt instead of cereal. St Marys is very central with only a 10 minute walk along the river into York. I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to other travellers.

Having heard bad things from colleagues about the TravelLodge (noisy and dirty) and Novhotel I decided to try a guest house instead and fortunately for me the first I tried didn't answer the phone so I ended up on this place at random. What a find. Absolutely spotlessly clean, good sized shower with plumbing that works, very quiet location so I got an excellent night's sleep and finished off with a superb breakfast. The owner/chef and waitress were both genuinely friendly and I couldn't fault this place in any way. Will be staying here for all my future business trips to York.

we stayed here for two nights while on a city break to York, and it lived up to the great reviews on trip advisor. Excellent location especially if travelling by train, spotlessly clean , warm welcome , comfortable room and good food
