The Guy Fawkes, is without a doubt, in a fantastic position right opposite The Minister and 5 minutes walk from the Shambles. The atmosphere within the bar is great, lit only by candles and we loved the idea we where staying where Guy Fawkes was born. Our room was lovely, comfortable bed, good shower and after 10.30 pm, when they... More

The rooms at The Guy Fawkes Inn were gorgeous, comfy, and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay! Sadly, the Inn itself although a pleasant atmosphere, was overpriced and the food was shocking! We chose to eat lunch there upon arrival, it was very expensive (£16 for a small slice of belly pork) and was smaller than a happy... More

We stayed at Guy Fawkes Inn over the bank holiday weekend. The first downside of the Inn is that there is no parking so you have to collect some tickets to park in a car park nearby (5 - 10 minute walk), which is £7 per day and this cost is added to you room. This was slightly inconvenient for... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us some comments regarding your stay. We appreciate all opinions as it helps us improve. The fact that the parking is not on site is stated on our website and should be taken into consideration prior to booking a stay. All parking in York is chargeable, however we get discounted parking permits... More

Had a lovely stay at the Guy Fawkes Inn. Stayed in a four poster room over looking the minster (room 7). Bathroom was small but adequate and the room was huge. Had an evening meal and breakfast in the beautiful old restaurant, both equally lovely, although the staff seemed to be rushed off their feet in the bar which meant... More

We visited York for the day and arrived very hungry . We had been to this pub before for food . They serve restaurant meals at the rear of the bar area. We took advantage of the 2 courses for £10 menu. The service was excellent and staff were very attentive . The restaurant was not very busy when we... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your food. As for the lack of ambience, as you mentioned you were here very early and it was very quiet. In my opinion, sometimes it is not enough with just old and characterful surroundings and lots of candles and old... More

Booked to stay at the Guy Fawkes hotel, loved the history of place, built on site Guy Fawkes was born. Opposite York Minster and central to the city of York. The hotel is also a pub and restaurant. The pub is still lit by candles and gas lamps through out (rooms excepted!) and is very atmospheric, the bar is well... More

Thank you for the amazing review and the five stars! We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your stay, however very sad to hear that you did not get a chance to try our famous steak pie! Next time you are coming to visit, please let us know, and we will make sure we keep a couple of pies aside... More

Stayed here a couple of times when taking our daughter back to university, you can get some good late deals. After the stress of moving all those bags and boxes nice to relax for a night. Bed really comfy and breakfast excellent. Really old style as you would expect from a property of this ilk, you are staying in a... More

We booked this hotel for a mid-week break as it is in a great spot for sightseeing, and visiting the many pubs around York. We had the cottage, room 11 out in the back yard, it was lovely, and a massive bathroom (shower wasn't very powerful) but lovely and clean. The room had a couple of things missing, a bedside...

We usually stay in a premier or something like that but decided to treat ourselves to a two night break in York in a hotel we thought would be a bit more special. The Guy Fawkes is ideally placed right by the Minster and very near the shambles. Our room was large, had a small en suite shower room and... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts regarding your stay. We appreciate everyone's opinion, as it helps us to improve. We are a completely different kettle of fish to any chain hotels, and some people prefer the clean cut, modern surroundings rather than a historic 300 years old inn with character and wonky floors, and that...
