No one should have any hesitation at staying at this lovely bed and breakfast. The house is close to the city, costs £3.70 return, bus drops you off and collects you from the same place opposite the Tourist Information Centre. Graham and Heather are very helpful and considerate host and hostess. If you have a problem Graham is happy to... More

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Heathers Guest House and found our time there to be absolutely delightful! The Fishers are the most gracious hosts and we couldn't have had a better experience. The room was beautiful and clean, the grounds stunning, and they were so accommodating with our breakfast needs and any other needs. Knowing we would most... More

A welcoming stay. Comfortable room, good English breakfast and a friendly host who is happy to share as much local knowledge as you can absorb. The breakfast room overlooks a rear garden with much bird-life

The location is pretty good, about 20 minutes from the centre of York in a neighbourhood area that is a nice walk and accessible by bus. Great service, very attentive host and wonderful breakfasts. The rooms were very nice and comfortable as well and there were some great views.

Lovely comfortable room in a friendly cosy place in this very busy city. 'Mine host' was informative, courteous and approachable at all times. The view of the varied wildlife from the dining room was an added bonus, while waiting for my breakfast in the morning. I was asked the night before what I would like to eat, and it was... More

We recently visited York for the first time and stayed 5 days at the Heathers Guest House. Graeme made us welcome from the first inquiring phone call and on the evening of our arrival. He gave us directions, described much to see (which quickly made us realise how absurd was our original thought that we might get round it all... More

The Heathers is about a 20 minute walk through a lovely, somewhat upscale, neighborhood to the gates of York (I recommend the Turkish barber for men on the way). I walked to and from the Minster district or the Shambles every day. The Inn's location is quiet, and there is even a decent pub nearby if you want to have... More

We had a great time in York, largely thanks to the hosts at the Heathers Guest House B&B. Located about a mile from the center of town, it was easy to reach by bus, leaving our car at the guest house. We also could drive to other places in Yorkshire without going through the center of town. Our host gave... More
