Reviewed 29 April 2014

I very recently spent an evening at St Denys in April 2014 and what an amazing evening that was. Sophie and Maria were so welcoming and so very kind helping me with anything I needed and most certainly going that extra mile for their visitors. The hotel is very tastefully decorated - very modern and chic, the bedroom and ensuite were immaculate and have to receive top marks for cleanliness and so very comfortable! A great choice of breakfasts - cereals, yoghurts, fruit, and many cooked options. A superb find and would thoroughly recommend.

What a fantastic place to stay ! We just stayed for one night but really wanted to stay longer. The rooms were spotless and very tastefully decorated. Sophie and Maria couldn't do enough to help us. They recommended restaurants and even rang and booked a table for us. Lovely and quiet even though the centre of York is moments away. Breakfast was very well cooked, lots of choice, full Yorkshire, cereals, toast, fresh fruit with yogurt and a lovely homemade raspberry compote. All in all, a beautiful oasis in a busy city. Will be recommending it to all our friends and next time we come to York will definitely be booking in for another stay ! Thank you Sophie and Maria.

Room Tip: We had room 8 which was lovely, my brother and his wife were in room 7 which was equally beautiful

I recently spent a week at St Denys Hotel in mid March 2014 and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my stay. Sophie and Maria are wonderful hosts that are so welcoming, kind, and helpful. They go above and beyond! Breakfasts were delicious and my room was just delightful from a super comfortable bed to organic soaps, lotion, and shampoo..It is also a great location for walking around York. I was visiting my daughter who is at the University and that was an easy bus ride or a walk. I would highly recommend staying here and I hope to be back someday!

This was our 3rd stay at St Denys, twice previously under the previous owners and this time under the very welcoming and friendly sisters Sophie and Marie. On entering the property for the 3rd time the refurbishments were immediately noticeable and very tastefully done. This is carried through the rest of the hotel including the guest room (we were in No.9), en-suite, and dining room. The time we did spend in our room was a pleasure, with plush quality soft furnishings, a big tv screen, heat, large shower with steaming hot water, and a good selection of quality products on the tea tray (with more supplies left out for us on Reception if we needed to replenish, including mini chocolate eggs!). The bed was just pure luxury and if nothing else had met my high expectations then i would certainly rush back to St Denys again based on the comfort of the bed alone. Breakfast was very nice, a beautiful environment, and the poached eggs were cooked perfectly! We will most definitely return to St Denys the next time we are in York, and I would certainly recommend this accommodation to my friends and family. Wishing Sophie and Marie a fabulous 2014, hope all your hard work and dedication pays off for you, well done and thank you. Julie and Tony Rymer xx

We booked two rooms for our family of 5. Maria and Sophie rearranged the furniture for our kids so that each had their own bed. Breakfast was delicious too. Maria and Sophie are wonderful hosts and their B&B is perfectly clean with super comfortable beds and nice bath products. We highly recommend this to anyone staying in York!

Room Tip: Ground floor room is great for 3 kids. Upstairs was perfect for a couple. All rooms are quiet.

A gem of an hotel in the heart of York. A perfect location for all the attractions within the Old Walled City, as well as a host of good restaurants along Walmgate. And only five minutes walk from the Barbican Centre. Despite the central location the hotel is in a side road off Walmgate and we found it quiet at night. Sophie and Maria are two sisters who've just taken over the hotel and they couldn't be more helpful. Our room was newly decorated and carpeted with a brand new bed too. The breakfasts were excellent. All in all we'll definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: Several rooms have views of the medieval St Denys church opposite the hotel.
