We have stayed at The Heathers at least four times over the last few years and will return in 2013. We have always received a warm welcome and our hosts were most friendly. A lovely cooked breakfast is always accompanied by a natter with Graham and advice/suggestions on what to do and events in and around York. Our room is... More

We stayed for three nights in July 2011. York was very busy at the height of the tourist season, and so a last minute booking was not well planned! We were surprised that the bathroom was not ensuite, and that the room was very small with just enough room to walk around the bed (no bedside tables or lamps), and... More

Our stay at The Heathers was very comfortable and relaxing. Our room was very clean, as was the rest of the house. We were warmly welcomed by Graham and he was so obliging, providing us with decaf tea and coffee in our room and organizing a taxi as soon as we told him we needed to be in the city... More

Very relaxing stay. Well furnished in a traditional way. A lot of the furniture were genuine antiques. Traditional cooked breakfast but cereal, fruit and yoghurt available. The Fishers are very hospitable, friendly and helpful, even to Asian guests, which is not what I have experienced in B&Bs in other parts of the UK. Very strategically sited. Only a 20 minute...

We were welcomed warmly by Graham and Heather Fisher when we checked in at 8.00pm in the evening of 28 June, 2011. The room we had was lovely and very well furnished. The attached bathroom was modern and the shower worked perfectly. Breakfast... More

My Mum and I stayed here for four nights in June 2011, and had a wonderful time. Bedrooms were very nicely decorated and furnished, the beds were sooo comfy and the bathroom facilities were nicely maintained and clean. The proprietor, Graham, even offered us a change of rooms midway through our stay so that we could have an en-suite rather... More

We stayed in the B&B a couple of nights and I would not recommend it or stay there again. It seems the B&B does not offer a continental breakfast at all!!! There is only a choice of cereals or a fry-up; so if you don't/can't eat milk like me and if you do not fancy a cooked breakkie you are... More

I booked this guest house for a long weekend. Graham was very helpful and friendly with lots of good advice on what to do in York. we had the superior double room which was a good size but the twin with private facilities for the teenagers was very small. The shower in our room was very underpowered and we had... More
