Very clean, staff were excellent, room a bit small for the price, breakfast spot on. Ideal for the town centre, nice and warm. What else can I say it's a bed and breakfast. Ideal for a short break, been before many times.

I had a great stay at St. Mary's. The staff were very friendly. I asked where I could find a laundromat, and they kindly offered to do some washing for me. The breakfast was delicious with a good variety. The fruit salad was outstanding. It was a cozy place to stay, and I will look them up again next time...

We have just had a 2 night stay at this guest house and it surpassed our expectations, so much so we will definitely return. The location is brilliant, so close to the city centre yet very quiet in a very pleasant neighbourhood. The staff very friendly, warm and welcoming, our room had everything we needed and above all, spotlessly clean....

Much enjoyed our short stay here, very friendly staff and a very enjoyable breakfast, Great value for money and very close to York town center, Very clean a bit dated, but very clean. As you arrive by car you may think there is nowhere to park, But there is, the white chains opposite the B&B are for use of then...
