St. Mary's Guest House
Ranked #47 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Found St. Mary's 21 years ago at Christmas time, and since then Barry and co.. have become friends of ours, and our children who are now 28 and 25, who helped Barry decorate his Christmas tree in December, now take their children aged 2 and 3 and we would never entertain staying anywhere else unless we unfortunately couldn't get in at St. Mary's. We take over his hotel for the race weekend in July with 12 other of our friends and they are so kind in letting us store cool blocks in freezer, beer in his fridge and they really do go that extra mile for you. We hope to be visiting them for many years to come, and if you want a perfect location in a beautiful city then pay St. Marys a visit you will not be disappointed. Looking forward to our annual Christmas shopping trip. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Room Tip: We have stayed in them all and all are perfect.

A very relaxing 2 night stay. St Mary's has very helpful and attentive hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. We were made to feel very welcome and there is a really nice atmosphere in this guest house. The room was clean and comfortable and the generous morning breakfast was cooked to our own tastes and preference. We've 'over-nighted' in and around York many, many times and this was one of our most enjoyable stays to date. Many thanks!!

we have stayed here for the past few years as we love to visit york. Barry always offers us a very warm welcome as does Caroline, as b&b's go this is by far the best we have ever stayed in.
rooms to suit everyone from singles to couples and families.
the rooms are sizeable and beautifully decorated, rooms with ensuite are more like rooms with bathroom as they have not tried to "shoehorn" a bathroom in a corner some where.
breakfast, well what can i say, the full english is just that. a hearty breakfast for sure, my wife is not a lover of cooked breakfasts so the cereals and and fruits were just to her liking and you get as much tea and coffee as you want.
location.
an easy ten minute walk along the river bank sees you in town.
parking is available outside the hotel for those travelling to york by car.
see you again next year Barry and caroline

Room Tip: rooms at the rear are the quietsist

Everything you could wish for in a B&B with the added bonus of a guest lounge. In a great position with either a lovely river walk or museum gardens walk into the city. Thank you Barry for a wonderful visit and very special thanks to Caroline who was so helpful.

Not been to St Marys for a while but just as good as always had three fab days.
Barry Caroline and the girls gave us a warm welcome, the hotel is always spotless the room comfy and the breakfasts are wonderful we will never slim by going to St Marys. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here if they can help in any way.
We fully recommend this hotel/guest house in a nice location near to city and a pleasure to see the trains pass by

Only had an overnight stay at St Marys, great location close to the city centre, very welcoming host.
The room was very clean, breakfast was excellent I would recommend this to anyone visiting York.
Barry is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble. The site only allows for two nights at the weekend but we rang the week before and managed to stay only one night wish we had more time for York. We will stay longer next time.
