We booked the superior double room for three nights between the 6th and 9th December 2012.On arrival we were met by Graham who invited us in and showed us to our room. He spent some time explaining to us the about the B&B, our location in relation York and with lots of good advice on what to do in York. Graham advised us not to leave anything of value in the cars due to the time of year and crime rates.
The room is on the first floor overlooking the garden and the wildlife and not on the ground floor as expected. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. It was clean and cosy. There were tea and coffee makings although I would have preferred Nescafe coffee though. The en suit was a good size with clean towels. The shower though was nothing to write home about as it was very underpowered and you had to stand close to the wall to ensure you could use it. Perhaps consideration could be given to a power shower. The bed was very comfortable and a nice place to retire to after a long day in York.
Breakfast was good although it would have been nice to have fresh orange juice and the toast was everyday sliced bread not of the best quality, but my wife did ask for a varied menu on our last morning which was accommodated.
The Heathers is about a mile from the centre of York and it only takes 25 minutes to walk there. If you do not want to walk then catch the Green Line number 2 Park and Ride which will cost you £3.50 return. The bus stop is just 250 yards from the Heathers. If you need a taxi Graham will advise about the best companies to use.
In the evening you need to book early for a table in the centre of York. But like us if you do not want to go into the city then there is a pub close by called the Dormouse. We used it for the three nights we were there and had excellent meals in a warm welcoming place.
Graham has many a story to tell and his knowledge of the area is top class. We had a nice stay.
