Certificate of Excellence
Awake each morning to the wonderful aroma of warm, freshly-baked, homemade breads! St. Raphael provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a fantastic location; a quiet cul-de-sac, just 500 yards from the heart of York. The Minster, the National Rail Museum, Jorvik, the Theatre Royal, and York's other major attractions, are all within 10 minutes walk. York Rail Station is 15 minutes walk. Car parking is free, just add on your booking you require it. Broadband Wi-Fi is free. All 7 Bedrooms are en-suite, with walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin. All rooms are light, airy, and welcoming, with fresh flowers and well-stocked hospitality tray. Laundry service available. The breakfasts are simply outstanding . Mainly, locally-sourced raw materials, freshly prepared (and we also provide gluten free sausages). Please read the reviews!
