I visited with my mum and dad for a quick drink. There was a wedding taking place in the back room. We sat in the front room and the only thing separating the two rooms was a beaded curtain. When we were trying to talk all you could hear was someone from the wedding party shouting out everyone's desserts. We... More

We stopped here for dinner on a flying visit to York, mainly because we passed by and the history appealed to me. What a treat. Dark tavern interior lit only by candles and gas lights ..... If you like to see your food it may not appeal but the atmosphere was fabulous. Great range of beers and ales and an... More

I stayed here with my family in order to attend my son's graduation ceremony at The University of York. It was an early start and the chef, very kindly, arrived early to ensure we were all adequately breakfasted prior to leaving. The rooms were spacious , comfortable and spotless. The inn is lit by candlelight. Older relatives found it difficult... More

I think the best way to sum this up is nice, and very atmospheric, but definitely not luxury or 4 star, even in the context of B&Bs. There were a few key things which just do not pass muster for something claiming to be a 4 star establishment. Firstly, we were at no point advised that the "deluxe" room we... More

We were in York for the weekend and had an enjoyable stay at the Guy Fawkes. Our rear-facing bedroom was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, and had an ensuite shower room and a very comfortable bed that gave us a great night's sleep. I'd particularly recommend the Inn's candlelit dining room, which has a unique atmosphere and top quality food.

We did not stay at Guy Fawkes Inn but we called in for a drink on passing by. On this experience I'm rather glad we didn't book. The pub area looked very dingy and dark and in the garden out back we had the pleasure of seeing a staff member stuffing his face with food in the kitchen. Also a... More

We had an enjoyable trip to York, and I strongly recommend keeping this city in your holiday itinerary. The Inn is small, but pleasant. The service was professional and very friendly. When we had a need, someone always came to help us and they were always smiling. The breakfasts were cooked to order and quite good. We ate dinner in... More

The bottom line - what a great place to stay! I hunted around for hotels for a while before finding The Guy Fawkes Inn and was instantly drawn to it because of the location - literally being opposite York Minster so you really cant go wrong! I was a little concerned by some of the photos that I saw on... More

On the back of a terrible experience we booked last minute in the belfrey suite! A great choice and great hotel, good staff, good food, great rooms and location to die for. The pub below served good beers and had live music on the Sunday night. The central location was a dream, the car was safe about a ten minute... More
