Warm real ale which were served through autovacs and £3.95 a pint. Rip off even in York - shame because the place is full of character and the food looked great. Would have eaten here had the beer been better.

Delicious food and great value, especially with the lunch menu - 2 courses for £12.50 and 3 for £15. The food was absolutely beautiful, I had prawns and avocado for starter and hake for main. Lovely, albeit disturbing, touches such as the signature of guy fawkes before and after his torture by the bar really brought alive the history of...

Just got back from a weekend in York, staying at this lovely, quirky old pub. We stayed in room 11 which was downstairs. People were using the outside space and I did wonder how this would be for noise but it was all quiet by 10 30. We had WiFi (by the window). The room was lovely, different from the...

The Guy Fawkes is an old Inn close by the Minster, and you get what you'd expect from an old pub; creaky staircases, out of square doorframes, etc. But the rooms are well modernised (tho lacking a fridge) and ours had a large and very comfortable bed. we were on the top floor (3) which is a bit of a...

Nice and quirky place to stay. Right in the centre and next to the cathedral. Great location. This place is different to other hotels/B&Bs and whilst worth a visit, it would be worth staying when there are deals on as i don't think it would be worth paying the full price they ask for, especially at peak times. We had...

Thank you for your feedback, Gingersweets. Quirky and different is a great way to describe Guy Fawkes Inn. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in our Belfrey suite. We're sorry that your breakfast experience was just okay. We just recently updated our breakfast menu, adding new options to suit every palate and most dietary requirements (Gluten Free, Vegetarian, etc...

So location is excellent though no parking but it's central York so to be expected - no points lost there but ask about the parking pass to save yourself a few pounds against the normal prices in marygate car park...perhaps the hotel should provide that on a complimentary basis? The building has great history, huge character and the staff are...

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions, Stephen. We will certainly consider your suggestion about the parking vouchers. We're due to refurbish the rooms in the near future to bring out the sparkle that you seem to have felt was lacking during your stay on this occasion. We agree the building is full of character. We're also delighted that upon arrival...

Great place to have a few beers and soak up the historic atmosphere! Just across the road from the Minster so you can't miss it. The local ales that are on are great, definitely worth a taste. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Hi Finchkat, We're so glad you enjoyed your time at Guy Fawkes. Our ales are brewed in Yorkshire, our food is of the highest quality and locally sourced, supporting the local economy. Why not book a table in our restaurant for an evening meal or one of our celebrated Sunday roasts next time you decide to visit? Be sure to...

After a beautiful day walking around York, we decided on a roast dinner at Guy Fawkes, after a few minutes wait we were sat down and forgotten about, from the initial sit down nothing about the specials or meals were explained by the waitress who sat us, after 10 minutes another couple were sat down by a more professional waitress...

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
