The innkeepers (Gordon and Cecilia) are delightful! So warm and welcoming, and super helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The Hillard House is beautiful, the accommodations comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. The dining room was so inviting and the hosts and guests so interesting, we stayed at the breakfast table for three full hours.... More

Gordon and Cecilia are the perfect hosts. They are gracious, very knowledgeable about W-B and the surrounding area, and they cook wonderful breakfasts. The Inn is nicely maintained and in a great location. Check it out.

Spent a weekend with Cecilia & Gordon recently while visiting in the Wilkes-Barre area. They are very welcoming and anxious to help in anyway they can. We felt more like family than guests. It is like walking back in time & visiting your grandparents which I loved. The rooms were clean & spacious. Breakfast was amazing. Parking was not a... More

We happened upon this bed and breakfast by chance and it was serendipity! Beautiful old home, tastefully decorated with thoughtful amenities. The innkeepers are absolutely wonderful. Friendly and helpful! The most pleasant surprise was the breakfast! Homemade muffins, fresh fruit, made to order eggs benedict!! Best bed and breakfast in a long while. We will be back!

This review is a little overdue, we stayed here in May 2014 for one night. The Inn is well kept and clean, a nice porch, and a quiet location near the riverwalk area. Off street parking also. The room was very nice with a good sized bathroom. Cecilia and Gordon were both very nice and personable. The breakfast was delicious... More

We stayed here during our July 4th visit to the "valley". Cecilia and Gordon were very welcoming although they also were hosting most of their family for the fireworks. We were even introduced to their newest grandchild! Love staying in B&Bs where you are welcomed as one of the family and treated to a great breakfast and interesting conversation. Beautiful... More

My husband booked this B&B for our final day - Memorial Day - after spending the weekend with family. I had no idea that Cecilia and Gordon could make one night so spectacular! The owners carried in our suitcases, gave us maps and tips of interest - including ideas on where to dine, and prepared a wonderful retreat for us.... More

Really bad booking engine on the web site. I couldn't complete the transaction with B&B gift card selection, yet when I called and made the reservation by voice mail and again by email it took 2 days to get a response. Despite having given my entire reservation over each method when I finally did get a response I was told... More

This reviewer has never stayed at Hillard House and to my knowledge has never been on the property . She first contacted us on Jan.29 mid-afternoon by voicemail about a reservation for Feb.8. By noon on Jan.30 she had our response that the suite she requested was not available(a response in less than 24 hours). This obviously allowed her ample... More
