Such a beautiful guest house a 5 minute walk away from the city centre. The museum gardens are round the back for a scenic walk to town to watch people feeding the squirrels. The room was spotless and very quiet despite the hotel being full. We got a good night's sleep. The breakfast was delicious- full English ordered the night...

Our stay at 23 St. Mary's was extraordinary. Attention to details and unbeatable service. Everything clean, they welcomed us warmly and we felt we were at home. Location is perfect, there's some parking space that they will let you use for free if there's availability. We cannot think of anything that wasn't up to our expectations. If you're staying in...

Stayed here for the second time. Very clean and comfortable and convenient for city centre. Parking permit for just outside. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. If you feel peckish in the middle of the night there is a small honesty tuck shop on the landing. Highly recommend and will most certainly stay here again.

I've stayed at this hotel whenever I've stayed in York, as the staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable, the food is delicious, and the location is near downtown but far enough away you get a nice walk. But book in advance, as it's a popular place and rooms fill up fast! I wish the room keys were a little...

Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and would heartily recommend this 4 Star B&B as an ideal base from which to explore York. Staff are superb - friendly and welcoming. Location is perfect... A very quiet road situated just a short (and beautiful) walk from the Minster. Much nicer experience than the impersonal 'corporate' hotel syndrome. Breakfasts of a very...
