#66 of 202 in York
Standing next to York Minster, the Guy Fawkes Inn was the birthplace of the notorious plotter, Guido Fawkes. The Inn offers en-suite rooms with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV’s and AA Rosette Food. Each of the thirteen rooms have been decorated individually, feature antique feature, tea/coffee making facilities and complimentary toiletries. Many of the rooms also enjoy a landmark view. The inn retains many of its original features including gas lighting, real log fires and the timber staircase. You can also dine by candlelight in the restaurant, which serves classic pub-food from locally sourced ingredients and the bar stocks a range of real ales. The York Ghost Walk Experience leaves from York Minster each Saturday at 19:00 and both York Theatre Royal and the National Railway Museum are just a 5-minute walk away.

Visited on Wednesday 18th May , I picked a real ale which looked to my taste , when I took a drink it was full of line cleaner , I complained to the barman who reluctantly changed it but didn't offer any form of apology , my 4 other friends ordered drinks and when coming to pay realised my replace drink had been added to there bill, when it was questioned a manager had to get involved ,would not recommend , if you want the guy fawkes connection take a photo from outside

We paid £350 each per couple for 2 4-poster bedrooms, breakfast and dinner. We did not expect to pay or be asked to pay anymore than that for 1 night, however, we were told max £35pp pmeal. Anything more than 1 option for breakfast it was a £10 extra, so you could not have a plate of fruit followed by an English breakfast, it was one or the other. They got 2 down for the meal when I booked via email for 4 guests' they had to change seating around on a Friday night very quickly! very embarrassing! Was charged in the morning for bar food and drink we did not have. The shower was intermittent - kept going boiling hot when you did not touch it. Carpets to rooms were filthy. Hairdryer - we had to go underneath the dressing table to plug in - no extension lead for guest, I pulled a muscle in the process! Meals do not come with vegetables, that is a side order and an extra cost - we did not know that or asked from the waitress that before and when we booked our meal. A pudding of Lemon Merangue Sundae - shocking horrible taste with bought merangues, gone off lemon curd, I informed waitress only to be a face looking down at me saying No, no, no and with her aloofness, I requested the chef straigt away - sure enough, he said it was bought merangues and the lemon curd was frozen, thus, I said probably the old taste due to too long in the freezer (months) His face said it all. A double bed and one of our guests fell out onto a wooden floor! Bin men at 5am in the morning Guests coming in upto 3am in the morning - great laughter Would I/We stay again??? Definitely not!!! Overpriced, not 4 stars, aloof member of staff who let her team down. Cutting corners with food delivery and prep. The whole place needs a makeover!! Also, car parking, none on site, was £25 for 24hrs at Monk Bar and the hotel do not give/offer discount. Yep, a £350 charge with no car park!

Paying for location and history of hotel. Rooms really dark, external fan came on every morning 6:45am. No plugs near mirrors for drying hair, kettle had to go on the floor. Myself and friend had same meal, I had no sauce on pasta had to send back, waitress mentioned they looked different! External awning in court yard made rooms really dark. Travel companions had no hot water, as I booked the hotel felt guilty for poor experience

What a lovely pub, its really cute and quirky and i love the outdoor space, it offers lovely food and a good selection of Beers. You certainly couldn't get a better location in York to stay in, right in the middle of things. I must say a big Thank you to David who you book the night before for a Free guided walking tour of York, this man knows so much about history and clearly loves York, it was fun and informative i would definitely recommend it, as it helps you get your bearings in the City so you can work out what you want to go back to for a more indepth look after, i'm sure we wouldn't have found some of the places if we hadn't had a tour with David, and at the end you just give him a tip, i recoomend you do this on your first day in York.
