Just returned from staying at The Guy Fawkes Inn and was worried about the comments on the site about cash problems. Hotel called us and advised us that they could not take credit cards so we were made aware.
On arrival the staff were helpful and the rooms are immaculate with traditional decor, comfartable bed and a hidden modern en-suite.
It is right opposite the Minster and a bit difficult to find but once you are there it is central to the whole of York.
Could not fault the hotel in any way and if they have cash flow problems then I think it will only be short term as the pub, food etc seemed busy without it being overcrowded.
Only point to note for travellers is that you do not need an alarm for the Sunday as the MINSTER bells start at 9am and go on for nearly an hour, but only on a Sunday.
As stated an excellent venue and we will probably be back there next year or possibly even sooner.
