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

My wife and I are B & B lovers and stay in them when ever we get the chance. If staying in Wilkes-Barre, definitely stay at the Hillard house. We spent 2 nights. Gordon and Cecilia are terrific hosts. The breakfasts were delicious. We stayed in the gold room which was very comfortable. The Empire style home is a gem... More

Trip advisor led us to this wonderful gem and the owners Gordon and Cecilia. The house is just a few short blocks from city center (which... More

We just arrived home from a week-end in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania where we were seeing the Breeders Crown Horse races. We chose this B&B through trip advisor ratings and were not disappointed. Our host and hostess Gordon and Cecilia Williams were a great team, preparing fantastic and very filling breakfasts to start the day and then even greeting us with an... More

Our second visit to Hillard House. The hospitality shown by Cecelia and Gordy is ideal. They know how to make your stay special. We've stayed in two different rooms and the beds are comfortable, with plenty of comfy blanks to keep you warn on a cold night. There are small refrigerators for use in each room. Breakfast is served in... More

My fiance and I stayed at this lovely B&B over labor day weekend. Cecelia and Gordon were welcoming and warm hosts with lots of local knowledge. The house is beautiful and our room was spacious and clean. Fantastic breakfast! If you looking for a place to stay in the Wilkes-Barre area you can't go wrong at Hillard House.

We recently stayed here and we highly recommend Hillard House. The proprietors Cecilia and Gordon were so gracious. We arrived late at night (midnight) and they had stayed up to welcome us and take our luggage upstairs. We stayed in the blue room and it was very nice. After 2 days they upgraded us at no charge to the Duchess... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night with Cecilia and Gordon and wish we could have stayed a week! They are gracious, kind and informative hosts who have an amazing converted home. The breakfast was incredible as advertised and they serve you at a communal table which was quite nice. The outside and inside of the house is gorgeous... More

This is such a cute place to stay. It’s quite an amazing historic property and you truly feel like you went back in time when you stepped in. We were also served great breakfast with fresh fruit and freshly baked pastries. It’s very quiet - I got a great 8 hours of sleep in a huge bed. Bonus point for... More
