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.

Went to the restaurant for my birthday meal and wasn’t disappointed. We all enjoyed our meal and the raspberry and sorrel sorbet was lovely. The waitresses were both very friendly and made it a pleasant experience. The gentleman at the bar who seated us was quite brusque but

Thank you for your feedback. We do appreciate all feedback so we can improve the business, however seeing this is deeply saddening.At no point during your stay with us did you express your disappointment, if you had made the team aware of your concerns at any point during you stay we could have tried to move you into an alternative room which would have been more suitable to your requirements. We not advertise our self as a hotel. We are a inn which is a pub with rooms. Our Courtyard area does close at no later than 10.30 every night and we do close bar to the public at 11pm during the week and 12pm on a weekend. Im sorry if you heard other guests on the stairs but these would have been guests of the inn who we do ask to be quiet when returning from a night out. The majority of our guests are British tourists not overseas like you said and we believe we deserve the great feedback we receive from both. I'm sorry we wasn't the place for you. Regards The Guy Fawkes

Lovely food all homemade and quality produce. Well priced. Good portions. Friendly staff in a lovely quaint setting. Homemade chips. The chocolate chilli pudding is amazing as was the sticky toffee pudding. We will visit again. Would recommend.

It’s not far about 15 min walk I’d say. Just under 2 miles

I used a website called JustPark and found a privately owned parking space just round the corner from The Guy Fawkes - might be worth a look?

"If you choose a room in the main street it will be noisy with the bells and people going by, but also very interesting."
"The view of the Minster is great but you have to put up with lots of street noise."
"Lovely view of the Minster from our four poster!"
"1st floor rooms at the back have a lack of privacy and noise from bar and beer garden, especially room 2."
"rear rooms quiet after 10.30 as they overlook outdoor dining area"
US$103 - US$314 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
