I Booked 23 St Mary's for a 2 night stay to celebrate my husbands birthday. This bed & breakfast is the most beautiful place to stay, in a fantastic location which is just a short walk into the main town. From when I booked right up to when we left nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, and...

We booked single night stay then we're contacted by the owner and offered a complimentary upgrade to the room. Room was fantastic, bed was great, we were left a hand written welcome note and chocolate Easter Eggs. We were texted a few times by owner offering help and advice and checking we were ok. Good breakfast. The only slight downside...

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.
