The staff were more concerned with serving the guests sat outside the ones inside were forgotten. At £200 plus pounds per night I would expect better service. Will not stay... More

We stayed at the Guy Fawkes Inn for two nights in July. On the plus side, the hotel is in a great location, being right in the centre of old York, and is a fascinating old building. The staff were very friendly and helpful. On the down side, the rooms, or at least the one we had, are very basic.... More

Guy Fawkes Inn ​was a perfect hotel for our four day stay in early June with our ten year old grandson. A local had recommended the Guy Fawkes Inn. As soon as I looked at the website, I knew it would appeal to our grandson with the decor and historical emphasis. The three of us were excited by our choice... More

We visit York regularly and honestly, we just cannot find anywhere better than here to eat. We have never stayed in the hotel. The food is absolutely stunning and the historical, dark atmosphere is a big plus for history lovers! Considering the quality of food, this place is great value for money ( 3 course and alcoholic drinks for 4... More

Had a lovely meal here. Staff were really nice and helpful. There also was live music - a singer and a man with an electric violin, and they played folky music. Was lovely. Roof could do with a paint but otherwise had a nice rustic feel. Will definitely recommend

My boyfriend and I stayed here after deciding to have a stay over in York and we decided to stay at the Guy Fawkes Inn - we were given Room 11 which was a double across the courtyard inside a building which read 'Guy Fawkes Cottage' on the wall - beautiful room with a comfortable bed and lovely dark furniture....

We visited this inn to see if it would suit us for our anniversary meal. We had a drink (which I thought was overpriced) while we had a look around and view the menu. We decided against. Whist it obviously has a lot of history we found it too commercialised. The restaurant was much, much too dark and worst of... More
