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

We stayed here in July 2013 for a weekend to attend York horse races. We booked out 2 rooms. We travelled as a large family group with other family members staying in different places more central to town which we wouldve preferred. Our room was very small. However we did have our own seperate bathroom which was massive, bath and... More

My Wife and I have planned a 15 day visit to Northern England and Scotland. The first 3 days of the trip we spent at Heathers Guest House. We flew from Florida to Manchester, England and took the train to York. Upon arriving we took a taxi to the guest house. Cost was under 6 pounds. The guest house is... More

On arrival we had a warm and freindly greeting from Graham, who then showed us to our rooms and then was very patient in answering all our questions on the local history and best walks on York, even though we where five hours early for official checkin time. Also noteworthy is that there is a plenty of safe car parking... More

There is no way that this B & B is anywhere near a 4*, I'd say this is more like a 2*. No WiFI, tiny TV, tired room, door handles that are going to fall off. We arrived after spending a day exploring York, we were only going to be staying one day as we were going up to Scotland.... More
