I planned a couple of days in York to propose to my now fiance! Wanted to be in the centre of York and stumbled on the Guy Fawkes Inn website. So pleased I did, it made the trip.

If you want character this place has it by the bucket full! The Belfry Suite was fantastic, the photo's on the Guy Fawkes site don't do it justice!! Open the window and you can almost touch York Minster, where I proposed on the steps under the Heart of Yorkshire stained glass window (google it to find out why) and the sound of the bells the followinging morning added to the romance.

Staff were fab, making us feel really welcome, especially Emma who became our main point of contact. Breakfast in the amazing Gas and Candle lit restraunt was just what we needed to set us up for the day touring York. (Top tip: If in the car, buy an extra days parking ticket from the hotel if you are checking out but plan staying in York for the day). Have aded some photo's but only from a not so good compact.

Thanks to the Guy Fawkes Inn we will return!

Room Tip: The Belfy suite is fab, Bedroom, Lounge and Bathroom (with jacuzzi bath - just don't add bubbles ha ha!) are well set out with a vaulted lobby area between the Lounge and Bathroom to the bedroom. Very cosy, Also Windows from bathroom and louge look directly onto the Minster, the Bedroom overlooks the courtyard at the rear. (Do note though the suite is in the loft space and their is a relatively steep staircase into the suite, not a negative, just something to be aware of).

Stayed for two nights but sorry we couldn't have stayed much longer.Staff are excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them, Joao the night porter was a gem.The food was excellent and the restaurant was always busy because of this-so book a table.Stayed in room 2(very spacious and quirky)the whole look of the hotel was perfect from the dripping candles and old gas lighting to the sloping floors, wonky doorways and antique furniture made the whole place look very oldy worldy and perfect for a stay in such an old city .The location is fabulous literally sat across the road from the impressive York Minster and two minutes from the famous Shambles, lots of great shops, bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep. We are already planning to visit again and will definitely be staying at the Guy Fawkes Inn. We had a fantastic, romantic few days and loved every minute. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

My partner booked us into the four poster room which was fantastic and overall the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was disappointing, Sue is a vegetarian and asked for the veggy option which it turn out was just the full english with the meat removed. we had to ask for fruit juice and asked for coffee which never arrived and after we asked for the second time we finally got coffee but had to ask another couple for the milk off their table. This let down an otherwise enjoyable stay.

thankyou for you review.
I am sorry you feel that your breakfast let down your trip.
I will speak with the kitchen and make sure that we increase our selection of vegetarian options.
I will also personally speak with the breakfast staff to make sure that items are restocked and this does not happen again.
I would hope that you would consider staying with us in the future.
kind regards

Found this at the last min on booking.com, not our usual type of place but the location was excellent. Well the checking in was great, lovely welcome, we had a tiny quirky room with a view if the rooftops-reminded me of Mary poppins. Great old furniture, wonky floor boards, beautiful clean quality cotton bed linen. Good shower room, very clean and plenty of tea, coffee etc. we couldn't get a place for dinner but there is an abundance on the doorstep and then returned for a nightcap. Staff were brilliant, gas and candle light very atmospheric. Went to bed feeling like the muskateers could burst in the door at any time. Breakfast outstanding, the home made black pudding was to die for, my first candle light breakfast. To sum up, I can't wait to go back and take my daughters, it's like dickens meets Disney without the price tag!! Well done to the young manager and his team, we had a ball.
