Enjoyed our weekend at the Hillcrest Guest House. Great location, only a short walk into the city. Staff was very friendly, food delicious. Bedroom clean, warm and very quiet bed was very comfortable.

After much deliberation we decided to book the Hillcrest, and so glad we did. Well located only a short walk to the centre and attractions such as the train museum which... More

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.

We stayed in a family room which was lovely and had everything we needed. York centre is literally a 10 min stroll away. The B&B has... More
