Nice clean comfy rooms, hard working staff, perfect couples break. Great atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed it. Good food, the lunchtime burger and onion rings were amazing!! Reasonably priced drinks and literally steps away from the minster and all that York has to offer

We loved our stay at the Guy Fawkes and would definitely stay there again. This historic pub in the heart of York was an excellent find. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are decorated with character and the pub has a great atmosphere. The tasty breakfasts set us up for the day.

Stayed for just the 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As soon as you walk into the Inn you are immersed in the atmosphere of medieval York with candlelight and dark wood nooks and crannies. Our room (12) was in the rear courtyard and was very comfy with an extremely large bathroom. The bar serves a great selection of... More

Stayed with my partner on Wednesday 27 August this year. Having eaten and had drinks here a few times before we had never stayed so this was our first stay. We stayed in room 9 in the house at the back and although you go through the beer garden I must say it was not as noisy as other reviewers... More

Visited York this week for the first time and chose the Guy Fawkes Inn due to its central location. The hotel faces the Minster and has a pub and restaurant on the ground floor. The building is a lovely period property, steeped in history and kept in very good condition. We stayed in a four poster room that overlooked the... More

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.
