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

This is a really comfortable and quiet place to stay with parking available in the front drive. It is about a 5 minute drive or 20-25 minute walk to city centre ( we walked most times as the weather was great and the parking in town was expensive ). Breakfeast is tasty and the host is very helpful to make... More

We stayed at the Heather in July, at the time of the Tour de France, though this was not our intent. The welcome, the bedroom, shower room and dining room were spotless and of good quality. We has room one, in the front of the house and though it fronts the main road the road is not that busy at... More

I booked this B&B at least a month before our visit and I had made mention of why we were coming to the area when I booked our 2 rooms. About a week before we left to the UK, I received an email from Graham (the owner) stating that he had been trying to get ahold of me for a... More

Stayed here last year but it was a big mistake. Very creepy owner, makes my skin crawl. A few other reviews have said he is "talkative", I would say he doesn't know when to shut up. He made me feel uncomfortable in my own room as it was difficult to get him to shut up and leave. You cannot have... More

We called to book a room with the B&B, the guy on the phone was extremely unaccommodating. The way he spoke to me had tone which said take it or leave it. After checking few room price I decided book a place for two night even though he was extremely rude. I think he was annoyed because I was asking... More

Stayed two nights in September, 2013. We don't think reviewer "strawberry 457" stayed in the same place. Their negative review is 180 degrees different from our experience. Our showers (for two rooms) were more than adequate, and much better than several other places we stayed in Great Britain. Great make-up mirror! Breakfast was a little earlier than some others, but... More

I don't understand the negative review below (Sept 10th). We were there Sept 16 and 17. We got in early, before noon, and were able to move right into our room. The host was extremely nice and quite talkative. He provided a lot of good information on the area and what to see. The room was one of the largest... More

From the outside The Heathers looks welcoming but unfortunately my stay was the complete opposite. As soon as I stepped through the door I noticed a dreadful smell and the bedroom was very dusty. The shower was nothing more than a drip so I couldn't wash my hair properly. The breakfast finishes at 0845!!! Very early! I requested a sandwich... More
