Enjoyed our stay which was in Guy Fawkes Cottage, just across the courtyard. Bedroom was a nice size and bed comfortable. Bathroom was good size but shower rather underpowered and there wasn't anywhere to put anything in the bathroom. However, overall the room was very pleasant. The courtyard is closed after 10.30 ensuring that you have privacy after this time.... More

Good dinner experience at the Guy Fawkes. The restaurant is lit with candles and gas lamps which really creates an atmosphere. Food was good, try the pie if you dare as the portions are challenging! Set menu in the evening but the choice was good with fish, meat, veggie and others. Deserts were also impressive - sticky toffee pudding to... More

Me and my partner booked into this hotel for a romantic weekend getaway, it was a Saturday night but as it was a treat we opted for the deluxe double at £199 p/n. The reviews on here lead us to believe it would be an incredible place to stay. I cannot fault the staff, very friendly and helpful (although uniforms... More

We stayed here in May 2014 as part of an anniversary party. The hotel is small and charming. Some of the rooms are very small while others quite large. You stay in a place like this for the atmosphere and to be in the centre of old York. We also ate here one night. The food was fine but not... More
