I have been visiting York for over 35 years, and have passed this inn on countless occasions whilst never, until recently, stopping in for a drink or a meal. We recently ate there on a Sunday evening, and had a wonderful experience. We were seated in a room toward the back, away from the bar, and it suited our group...

Did not eat or stay here but called into on our way back to our hotel for a drink each day whilst staying in york, great service, good prices and some very well kept cask ales, one of the better pubs in York.

Stayed for 2 nights in "executive double room". Worst room we've ever stayed in.. uncomfortable bed, no wardrobe (4 coathangers) , no carpets on any stairs so very noisy ,no carpet in room-sticky floor! Best part of room was shower... plenty of clean towels and hot water! Stayed in York lots of times but NEVER stay there again!

Room was spotless. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend staying here especially if you are interested in period properties which have...

Friday night, started our we in grand style in this historic inn! You really step back into the past but it's remarkably cosy and comfortable. Returned Sat night, really by default as it was raining and we were looking in vain for a table somewhere. Very fortunately they kept the kitchen open at 8.50 if we made a quick menu...

City Centre Inn in a medieval building. The floors and staircases have moved over the centuries producing a quaint slant to your stay. The breakfast was perfect. Real Yorkshire! fare. The staff were so nice and helpful it really made our stay enjoyable. Perfect location and the sloping stairs and floors of this medieval building made it so 'different'. Would...

Stayed here for one night and would definitely return. Lovely friendly staff and great atmosphere. Location is fantastic too right near the minster. Breakfast was tasty and good choice, menu looked good for food although we had plans to eat elsewhere during our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Guy Fawkes Inn stands next to York Minster and was the birthplace of the notorious plotter, Guy Fawkes. The Inn offers 4-star rooms with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and home-cooked, AA Rosette food. Decorate with antique furniture and Italian fabrics, the rooms feature handmade beds, tea/coffee making facilities and bathrooms with complimentary toiletries from H2K of Harrogate. Many rooms have views of York Minster, the city or the courtyard towards the rear of the Inn where Guy Fawkes was born. 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. The world famous Ghost Walk leaves every night just around the corner. York Theatre Royal and the National Railway Museum are both just a 5-minute walk away. ... more   less
