Literally just walked through the door on return from Guy Fawkes, can't rate it enough. After months of researching on the internet this jumped out at me. I wanted somewhere authentic, with a real fire (being December I was aiming for cosy!), a fab location, good food, service and lots of atmosphere, This checked every single box. If you are after, ultra modern, shiney new swish hotels with no character, then please listen to the other reviews and go elsewhere, this is a fab traditional olde wold inn! The room (room 7) was beautiful, a huge 4 poster (sooooo comfy!) with modern touches such as the flat screen TV, kettle (plenty of tea/coffee/hot choc), hair dryer etc. Bathroom was a little on the small side, but didn't exactly spend a lot of time in there. Location is amazing - we watched the bell ringers at the Minster through the window, everything is on the doorstep. Service was brill too - only ate breakfast there as they dont serve evening meals on a Sunday. Breakfast was lovely, fresh juice, tea, coffee, pastries, fruit and cereal and a lovely full Yorkshire! In the evening the pub was packed and had a lovely atmosphere. There is no reception, you check in at the bar which was really quirky - I liked it. Make sure you go to the hotel first to get your car parking pass, its about a 5 minute walk back to the hotel from Marygate carpark. Tons of shops, restraunts, bars etc on the doorstep. It also had free wi-fi, just ask at the bar for the passcode. I really can't speak highly enough of this hotel it's fab!!! Can't wait to return!!!
