We had a pleasant stay here. It is within easy walking distance of the railway station and city centre, but is tucked away in a quiet road. The staff were really helpful and friendly. We also found our room nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Good breakfast too!

A spontaneous visit to York resulted in my husband and I quickly booking a wonderful room at 23 St Mary's. It's very close to the city centre and train station, but tucked just enough away from the hustle and bustle. I chose the b&b whilst scouring google maps for what I thought might be a quiet street. As there is...

Luvley Luvley Luvley. A really nice luxury room, with the comforts of home and an individual welcome. Home cooked breakfast and proper Yorkshire tea. The staff were friendly and helpful with local recommendations and the attitude extremely relaxed. Would definitely come back here if we visit York again and would recommend it to any couples.

I stayed here for one night as part of a wedding party. You cannot fault this place at all. Nothing is too much trouble, everyone is pleasant and very helpful. Rooms are decorated to a high standard and the choice for breakfast was fantastic. This B&B would be 4 in a bed winners.
