Hate leaving bad reviews but I always leave honest ones . I believe in praise where praise is due and honesty where honesty is due. The first point I have to make Is my shock that this place has received 4 stars ? Honestly we were surprised , I'm really not sure how this has happened. It's not up to... More

From the time I arrived at Heathers I was welcomed and looked after. If you are on foot, it is about 25 minutes walk from the centre of town but there is a bus stop just a couple of minutes walk away so it is easy to get back into town. Graham welcomed me and gave me a thorough briefing... More

Very homely and welcoming. Breakfast was very nice, fresh fruit salad, cereal and cooked breakfast. We stayed in the superior double room at the back of the property. Beautiful room with the most comfortable bed and the best view of the garden from the big bay window. Double shower in the end suite bathroom. Fabulous. Would Def stay again

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.
