Bed: very, very uncomfortable and also very noisy (and not in a good way). The other wakes up if one rolls over. Room: very dark - might look romantic in pictures but try putting your pants on in the dark! Bathroom: shower had 2 temperatures - hot and very hot. Needs an extractor fan! Needs doors that actually close Wardrobe:...

Guy Fawkes Inn is ideally located just across the road from York Minster and within easy walking distance for shopping and other attractions. No parking on site but they do offer reduced priced parking tokens for a local car park. The Inn goes back to the 15th century so comes with all the quirkiness that brings, a lovely old building...

We have been to The Guy Fawkes for the last 5years to Christmas shop, each stay for 3 nights. It is very atmospheric and a lovely place to come back to after a day of shopping sitting down in one of the two warm welcoming rooms. The beer and wines are great and the restaurant has a really good menu...

Had a room above the bar (midweek) and unfortunately the noise carried which left me lying awake until 11:30pm. Room was tired, mattress was sagging in the middle and shower was incredibly under powered. I wont be returning, which is a shame as its a cosy, inviting space downstairs.

Great location, hotel in need of some tlc. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. Great atmosphere in the pub too. One small issue was that the bed cover was dirty and had a stain on it. Apologies were given and told that housekeeping would be informed

Would have been a 5 star but the alarm went off at 6.30am. for no apparent reason and without any explanation or apology. Some hotel chains have a remuneration policy for just this occasion !. Staff service and co operation was great. Would stay again.

Only stayed here for one night. The staff were pleasant and the room was lovely and quaint. Didn't sample breakfast as I had to leave for work early but staff offered to make me a coffee and some toast. Nice bar area with a good selection of beers on tap

The Guy Fawkes Inn retains many original features including the timber staircase, gas lighting and real log fires. Dine by candlelight in the Inn's restaurant, which serves traditional pub-food using locally sourced ingredients. The bar stocks a wide range of real ales and a broad selection of wines.
