We booked here mainly for the location, which could not be better but the whole experience was excellent. The Inn itself (& it is a proper Inn) is steeped in history & the decor & atmosphere is spot on, dark wooden paneling & eerie (or romantic depending on your mood) lighting transport you back through the centuries. The staff, all... More

My wife and I stayed on night in top room, front facing the Minster, four poster bed included! Very nice, lovely atmosphere and perfect for a short break in city. Spent latter part of evening in bar and enjoyed the hostelry very much. Bed was most comfortable and the room huge. If I was to nit pick on anything, I... More

... explain how good the food is here. Wasn't planning to eat but the lovely bar man (Ollie i think he name was) was telling me how good the steak pie was and I had to try one for myself. Great service and lovely food. Sneaky little beer garden out the back as well, lovely when the suns shining! Thanks... More

The staff of this hotel fail to realise that the last thing you want to do after a long journey is hang around in the lobby while they pull pints of beer for the locals instead of checking you in. To add insult to injury, they demand money on arrival, and,in our case, demanded £10 more than stated on the... More

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

I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our inn. We usually have live music on Sundays and Tuesday nights to keep our residents and other guests entertained, so I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it! We are very proud of our excellent location - nearly close enough to reach out and touch the minster itself!... 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

Thank you for visiting our restaurant and for taking the time to leave us a review. Yes, the pie is quite legendary! Only a few people have gone on to have a dessert after having the famous Guy Fawkes steak pie.... We always try to keep our menu up to date with seasonal ingredients and varied, in order to please...

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

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to read that you found your bedroom to be what you consider to be 'dark', but we would deem the room to be adequately lit in accordance with the conceptual nature of the Guy Fawkes Inn. However, we do concede that, to some, this could potentially be deemed to the contrary.... 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
