Crooked walls and ceilings from an inn where Guy Fawkes was born. Candlelight and character ooze through the walls and the rooms are lovely, well furnished and clean. Service is great, food fab and the whole experience was so exciting. Location couldn't be better. Will be back again and again.

I am terribly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us.
I will speak with my housekeepers and make sure every light is tested each day.
This is not something that is a reoccurring issue.
Thankyou for your feedback
Kind Regards

Our room, at £179 per night was clean but furnished with a hotchpotch of Edwardian 'auction' furniture. Bedside table door would not close and the table surfaces were very scratched. The kettle lid/spout was encrusted with limescale and the shower needed fresh sealant, it was black in places. At this price we thought we would get a fridge with ice but no. Smokers gathered in courtyard, outside our window and peeked in whilst we were in the room. The hotel could not offer us a table in restaurant for dinner unless we ate at 4pm! The cooked breakfast was ok but small and we had to ask for toast. The hotel is well placed in centre of York and has bags of history and atmosphere but at that price we will not be staying again.

We have been twice now to this wonderful old inn in York near the Minster...in fact wonderfully placed for all York attractions, and our second over night visit was just as memorable as our first.

Its a quirky hotel (Inn) with a gas lit restaurant and a candle lit bar. The bedrooms are individual and as the building is alleged to be where Guy Fawkes was born it is understandable why some of the floors slope!
Our room across the small courtyard was lovely ( room 10) with a four poster bed and a big bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower.
Fluffy towels, tea and coffee making, television and free wifi are all there, although the wifi signal is not always reliable.
The staff are friendly and the breakfast (included in our overnight stay) was good. We did not have dinner there this time but have eaten there in the past and it has always been excellent.

Would I recommend it....yes I would...if you dont want the run of the mill chain predicatable- type hotel,
Parking is by permit and the car park the hotel has an arrangement with is a fair walk away - but we knew this .....and it was no problem whatsoever....we will return!

We stayed there yesterday, the location is great and the staff were friendly enough but the room we stayed in just up from the bar is a bit shabby, subject to a lot of noise and nothing out of the ordinary for the price we paid. I appreciate it has history etc but at £179.00 it was very expensive for what it was, £79.00 would have been a more realistic price to pay.

We did mention this to a member of staff on the Saturday evening but she said it was because it was a family room although that was never stated in the booking and that it was because of the history involved in it.
