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

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
