We stayed here in December 2013 and it was a gorgeous old hotel. Very quiet and amazing breakfast the next morning. Perfect location for exploring York. We stayed in the old cottage at the back which is where Guy Fawkes is supposed to have been born. It's all old stone and is very eerie.

Found this hotel very difficult to locate but what a find it was! Perfectly located next to York Minster, this hotel oozes old England with gas lamps and squeaky floor boards. Our Sat Nav took us in circles due to bollards closing off the road where the hotel is so we eventually dropped our cases off and then had a... More

Great location next to the Minster with a very friendly and helpful staff. A huge, comfy 4 poster bed was only one highlight of the Guy Fawkes Inn. Excellent food in the restaurant, good beers in the bar. Recommended!

We have stayed here on two occasions, the first being on very short notice and only one (very tiny, cupboard like room...) room left which we took as we were glad to find a place to stay. On our second stay we pre booked, ensuring we got a double decent sized room. The room was ok. It had a fab... More

I had read the reviews on this location and read the website itself; on arrival the staff we're helpful on check in and showed us to the room. The room itself was exactly as expected - the floors were sloped and it was still styled in the 1800 - 1900 hundreds. In the evening we had a lovely meal and... More

If your visiting York for the historic value than this is a must have place to stay as it totally captures the ambience and character of York and literally makes you feel like your stepping back in time (apart from the pac-man machine which I totally don't get). Have stayed here many times and would not stay anywhere else in... More

Mysterious atmosphere, professional staff, perfect location, beautiful and clean room. Constant candlelight and wonderfully creaky floors. Enjoyed drinking in the beer garden. We love the great city of York and look forward to staying again at the Guy Fawkes Inn!
