My partner and I spent 2 days in York and decided to stay at the Guy Fawkes. Worried though when I read some of the reviews which suggested that the hotel wasn't clean etc.Also mixed reviews about the meals!
Let me reassure you if you're thinking of staying there - it's a little treasure. Of course, the floors aren't even and the decor is old fashioned - it's an old building!! Yes, there was a bit of noise from the bar but you're staying in a pub for goodness sake!!
The room was lovely and as we left, it was about to be redecorated. The staff were very friendly, the location couldn't be better and the food was divine. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was fantastic, breakfast was also great and all in all the value for money was unbeatable.
The car park, for which you buy a voucher, is a bit of a walk but then you are staying right in the middle of the city where parking is at a premium.
If you want somewhere where the rooms are all identical, the ambience is clinical, the food is just okay and the cost sky high then don't stay at the Guy Fawkes. However, if you want somewhere with a bit of atmosphere in the centre of town and with tremendous value for money then I would definitely recommend it.
