Hillcrest Guest House
Ranked #145 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 September 2014

I am afraid to say we were expecting a little more. We chose this B&B family room that was a little more pricey so that we could truly enjoy our stay in York. Yes it was close to all of the attractions and the host was lovely and she attended to all our needs.She was the one big positive. I am not sure what the other rooms were like, but ours was pretty average. It was a top floor, windowless, airless room, with a tiny ensuite and no room to move. It was very basic. Certainly not a place to relax after a day out. We would not recommend.

Room Tip: The top floor family room was not one I would stay in again.

Absolutely loved staying here, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Lena is so bubbly and happy all the time, very informative about places to visit & things to do in & around York.She cooks an amazing breakfast. The room we stayed in was cleaned everyday with fresh towels, absolutely spotless. it's ideally situated 10 mins from the centre of York and 10 mins from the races. All in all will definitely be staying again.

We had a very warm welcome from Lena...she's cooks a great breakfast in the morning!! She recommended some good places to eat and visit too. Our room was clean and tidy and the free parking at the back of the guest house was great too.

Owner lovely and very helpful, breakfast delicious and location great. Our room needed a lick of paint and extra pillows and our friends' was way too warm 'cos the window didn't open and no air conditioning. Overall it did what we needed it to do and I would recommend it for a weekend away.
