Beautiful guest house - Rating 5/5

Just returned from york, St Marys is a real gem, fantastic location 10 minutes stroll to the centre of town, Superb accomadation, spotlessly clean, Made really welcome from the staff. The breakfast was lovely, was not to much for the ladies to add more if you wished(not that you needed to). The room was beautiful, bed was the most comfortable ild ever sleep in ( no expense spared ) Spotless crisp bedding and towels, Just a beautiful guest house. On my travels around York i noticed other guest houses ild seen on and i can honestly say they wernt a patch on st marys. Bear in mind as well,St Marys has free parking at accomadation witch is 100% safe, On my next visit i will most defo be returning to st marys, Trust me peeps this is the best in town, with great staff and lovely atmosphere .

Comfortable, quiet and well located - Rating 5/5

Very well located close to Museum Gardens and The Minster. Also well within easy walking distance of the City centre. We walked everywhere and didn\'t use the car once. The B&B itself is very comfortable and although our room was not spacious it was perfectly acceptable for our weekend stay. All the linen, towels, fittings etc were luxurious and it was excellently clean and tidy. Finally, you would go a long way to find a better breakfast and more helpful staff.

Everything about our stay left us to comment on how good the quality was. From the comfort of the rooms to the breakfasts. Five floors means that you should consider mobility issues when booking but that is not a criticism, just advice, as we opted for the only room still available after we booked late and everything possible was done to help.
