We usually stay elsewhere when staying over in York but for the dates we wanted it was fully booked. While searching the internet I came across 23 St Mary's and for the location, free parking, and inclusive breakfast I could not believe the very reasonable room rate therefore I booked a double for myself and my wife. The owners were...

After an initial misunderstanding via booking.com Simon sorted things out with me via telephone...good customer service. Reception was very welcoming, the somewhat complicated parking arrangements explained and we were shown to our car parking space. We had room 5 which was snug and comfortable with a nice bathroom and well stocked courtesy tray. Location was superb...easy walk to York centre...

This B&B is in a very good location, just minutes from the Minster in a quiet road. There is free parking to the rear of the property (restricted to three spaces, although it is perhaps possible to obtain permits for on street parking at the front). The staff are very friendly and breakfast was reasonable, if not overwhelming. Everywhere is...

Thanks for your feedback Nick - we are of course disappointed that you found your room cramped. Many guests love Room 1 and find it cosy and homely, but everyone has different tastes. It sounds like you would have preferred a larger superior double room with a bath and shower - which is how most of our rooms are configured....

The room was elegant and spotless. We found the hosts very friendly. Great location to do the short walk into town. Just a minor thing, the car park was not right outside the B&B, as we expected. Overall, a lovely stay.

My husband and I have visited York a number of times and this was our 1st stay in No. 23. We were not disappointed. A great location round the corner from the city walls. Ask for a room at the back. So quiet! The room was a great size, tastefully furnished and most importantly, clean and tidy. Two little niggles...

This is a fabulous place to stay in York, visited on business in December. A really lovely calm feeling greets you upon arrival, and the place is beautiful with the emphasis on attention to detail. A great night, and a superb breakfast. I met the owners and they are genuine lovely people who want to and do deliver a great...

Thank you so much for leaving your lovely review! We hope you will come back to stay and would be interested to see what you think of our new lounge and dining room. The breakfast, however, will stay roughly the same - though we are starting to bake our own bread for guests to have in the morning. You're right...

Booked night before our stay. checking in was seamless. Room was very clean and tidy and even had view of the Minster. Less than 5 minute walk from city centre and central for bars and restaurants. Parking thrown in too. Breakfast was excellent. Excellent value for money and will definitely book again and owners were very pleasant and hospitable. Thanks...

We needed a place at short notice as our previous plans had been flooded out. Due to an offer they had at the time it was the cheapest deal we could find, but the ambience was far from low rent. Really lovely classy little hotel, clean and warm. Very friendly hosts, and the breakfast was one if the best we...

Thanks also for booking another stay with us - I am sure you will like the improvements we have made. Best wishes from all of us at 23 St Mary's...

Short visit for job interview. Great place to stay, even though decorating and upgrading was going on. Ideal location for walking around City. Nothing to complain about. Breakfast, which you order the night before, was good quality and substantial. Will certainly be first choice for any subsequent visits, especially as a parking permit is included.
