Thank you for your lovely review. It was great to meet you both. Enjoyed the chat. Look forward to seeing you in the future. Bring all your Australian family and friends with you, as well. We'll have a 'barbie', hahaha.
If you are looking for a modern boutique hotel then you will be disappointed, if however you looking for a traditional B&B then the St James is well worth visiting. I only stayed for a one night stop over, the owner was very friendly, the room was clean & tidy and well appointed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B or indeed staying there again.
This is a traditional B&B not a soulless service station hotel and it is all the better for it.
Thank you for taking the time to write a glowing review. Enjoyed the 'chat'. Hope your test driving of a motor bike was up to your expectations. Look forward to seeing you again in the future.
We stayed for 2 nights last week and had a good stay. It is comfortable and the breakfast is good, and the owner, Barry, is very entertaining and helpful. The building is lovely, and although some of the fittings and bathrooms are a bit old fashioned it was clean and warm and the house is full of antique furniture. It is only a couple of minutes walk from centre of Thirsk. Would recommend St James House.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
We stayed 2 nights just over Easter April2013 . The house is beautiful with antiques everywhere and we chose the front room with the wonderful Edwardian furniture! It was freezing outside but Barry has great heat!!! Bathroom is a bit dated but nice bathtub!! Breakfast was excellent with the very best rashers of bacon I've ever had(father's own cure excepted)! The price was very good for Thirsk and everything is in walking distance(AND you park your car FREE at his door ) Barry was/is an antique dealer and is a great one for conversation on all subjects!
Glad that you enjoyed your stay at St. James House and that you had a successful buying trip over here in the U.K. Thank you for your great review.
Hope the weather is warmer the next time that you come over here.
We will continue to get the bacon from the same local butcher and we will keep room 3 ready for your next visit to the U.K.
Very best regards,
My partner and I stayed at St James and found it a beautiful experience. Steeped in history and atmosphere. We stayed in room 3 and the bed was so comfy - it was a perfect stay. Barry the host was brilliant and Lucky the cat added to the charm of the place. We will definately be back! St James has enspired me to write more which is a huge positive, thank you Barry - see you soon.
Thank you so much for your lovely review - it is very much appreciated. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Good luck with the historical books that you are writing and with your ghost tours.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Very best regards,
I write to say I have stated at St James over the years when I visit family. I am welcomed the same each time with courtesy and and helpfulness!! The English Breakfast takes a bit of beating and served with much care and attention and the bedrooms are very clean and tidy and nothing is a problem to the owner. He knows so much about the area and as St James is a character house, there is nothing quite like it in the area. Parking is easy and it is away from the road. Lots more and I recommend anyone who comes to Yorkshire and the area to try it.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. As always, it is a pleasure to have you stay with us. You always have us laughing. You are a real fun person. We look forward to you visiting us again this year.
