Reviewed 31 January 2010

Stayed for two nights with own and another family. Good experience from start to finish. Arrived at 8.30pm and enjoyed a very good quality meal in the dining room (last service 9pm). Our room was large with a very comfy bed and a clean , good size bathroom. In fact the whole hotel feels roomy with high ceilings throughout. Very good location , just five minute stroll to City walls and just off a main road. Own car park which is handy. Rooms are on B&B basis , so don't miss the breakfast - freshly made and swiftly served it was delicious both mornings. We have tried several small hotels in York over the years and rate Hedley House as one of the best.

This was my third time staying at Hedley House, York, with friends and I would readily stay there again. The rooms are always cosy, warm and comfortable, as are the beds. The room and ensuite was spotlessly clean and attractively decorated. There was a plentiful supply of coffee and tea provided in the rooms. The full English breakfast was tasty and filling, accompanied by some excellent coffee, fresh fruit salad and toast. The staff are always charming and very attentive and efficient.

One of our reasons for choosing to stay here has been the free car parking facility located behind the terraced row. Yes, it is a little tight to get in, but is not unduly difficult with care. And to be within walking distance of the city makes this a very handy place to stay.

If you like a warm, immaculately clean, secure, quiet, well serviced room at a reasonable cost ; then Hedley House is for you.
If you like friendly, quiet, efficient service and good management:; then this is for you.
If you enjoy good quality meals with a choice of quality ingredients: then this is for you.
If you want an excellent location- great for a visit to the panto or the January sales or to simply sight see; this is for you.
I have stayed in other B&B's in York but since finding Hedley House 3 years ago I now would " look no further" and have recommended it to family and friends.

From the minute we arrived. until we left, after a most enjoyable, snowbound week, we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff, without exception. We were welcomed with a pot of tea, and the great service continued throughout the whole week. The room was very comfortable, the bed was massive, and the decoration was excellent. The full English breakfast would satisfy the hungriest, and the evening meals would give any local restaurant a run for their money. The parking facilities behind the hotel were off the road, and gave easy access to the hotel.
With the hotel situated a 5 minute walk from the city wall, you are close to all amenities, including museums, theatres, restaurants and road after road of speciality shops.
All in all, an excellent week, and one which will be repeated this year without doubt.

This is our third stay in the self catering apartments. They have everything you need for a long or short stay with your bed linen and towels included. The rooms are large and comfortable and have ample storage.The apartments are within ample walking distance from the city centre with a free car park on site that is very safe and secure. Although the apartment faced a railway line, the rooms remain quiet and secluded. Great for a short or long break away. Thanks again for making the New Year so special.

We found Hedley House after staying at a few really disappointing B&Bs in York, and it is a revelation. The rooms are very comfortable (those in the annex are larger) and well appointed and the breakfasts are excellent. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The venue is good - a 5/10 minute walk to the centre of the city, but what more can you ask, without spending a fortune? A big plus is free car parking at the back, and if it is full you can park in the middle and leave your keys at reception. It is a real oasis in the city and I recommend it highly.

I stay in the hotel often (several times per month) as I travel to York with work. The service I receive is excellent. Staff are friendly and will do everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
The rooms are large, and always clean.
The hotel is close to both my office and the city centre, only a short walk to local pubs/ shops / restaurants. But the hotel are always available to book taxi's and give travel advice where necessary.
I have stayed in many hotels / guest houses and B&Bs in York, but this is above all my favourite!
Great value for money - but above all it is the fantastic service, great staff and friendly atmosphere which means I choose Hedley House when staying in York.
