This quirky and amazing Inn really stole our hearts we are originally from York and visit regually but this was our first stay at this establishment and we were not dissapointed! !!

Great place for a couple of days - York is very walkable, plenty of bars and restaurants, history to see and the Inn sets you up perfectly - dark, candle and gas lit, fantastic live blues duo on a Tuesday night, and whilst the bed is not the most comfortable, the bell ringing in the early evening a tad annoying,...

It may be a good pub but don't stay. Very noisy, direct noise from the pub below. TV doesn't work. Even staff couldn't work it out. No room telephone, so you have to go downstairs if you need something. Big mistake to book here and glad we only stay one night.

Only booked this Inn day before we arrived, so glad we did. We read that it was close to The Minster but oh boy it's within spitting distance!! Brill. Stayed in Four Poster Bed Room with stunning view of Minster. Yes it was a bit noisy but we always take earplugs. Staff very welcoming and having breakfast by candlelight was... More

Great location, but not great for young families as the band on a Sunday night was very loud until 10.30pm so my 3 year old couldn't go to sleep and the noise from the buliders outside, from the building next door started at 7am, and then deliveries during the night, made for quite a sleepless night. That said I do... More

Last weekend we stayed at the Guy Fawkes inn in York. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, and immediately relaxed. The hotel is in a great position opposite the Minster, and central for most essentials. The staff polite and efficient, the range of real ales and beers excellent ...had to try them all, and...

First impression was excellent location to explore York & greeting from Manager Shane was very good. As we were early, he put our bags away for us so that we could spend time enjoying the sights and when we returned, bags had been taken to our room. All staff very helpful during our stay. Room & en suite quite compact... More

My partner and I only stayed one night here, which was a shame because, for me, it was the perfect place to stay. I love cosy, quirky inns when travelling in the UK and this ticked both of those boxes. Said to be the birthplace of Guy Fawkes, it oozes with spooky charm. Firstly, the location is just ideal to...

We had a fantastic stay at this characterful hotel. Sure the floor slopes, the door creaks & the decor needs a bit of tlc, but if those things matter to your overall happiness then stay at a chain hotel. But, if you like the idea of BAGS of character, helpful staff, bucket loads of history and waking up to the... More
