It has thirteen 4- star bedrooms that benefit from free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and complimentary toiletries by H2K of Harrogate. Many of these bedrooms also feature landmark views of the cottage towards the rear of the inn where Guido Fawkes was born and the church at which he was baptized.

The inn retains many of its original features, including gas-lamp lighting complemented by candlelight in the restaurant where One AA Rosette food - produced using locally sourced ingredients - is served. Real ales and a broad selection of wine is also available from the bar. Many of York's city center attractions such as the City Walls, The Museum Gardens, and The Shambles are less than a 5-minute walk away. Parking is also available for a small fee.

Plot to stay here

Location, staff, atmosphere.
We thought we would try something a little different and Guy Fawkes didn't disappoint. Great location right in front of the Minster. A little difficult if you are driving as you cannot park outside, but the staff were very helpful and came to fetch our bags and then showed us where to park a short walk away. We had a lovely 4 poster bed in a quaint room. The food was very good and twice a week (I believe) they had live music in the bar. The only niggling thing was the poor internet connection.

Not restful but excellent for short city break

Location, food and buzzy ambience
It was a very pleasant stay in a very central location, a few yards from the Minster. It is therefore extremely noisy, but reasonably quiet during the night. It is right in the middle of everything and so perfect for sightseeing generally and the Minster and shopping specifically. The food is really good, but that means it's very difficult to get a table at any reasonable hour because it's always booked up with the locals. Still, plenty of excellent alternatives nearby The hotel is small and extremely old, so quirky and interesting rather than modern luxury. Still it is quite comfortable. The service was very helpful and friendly.

Great small hotel retaining character

Old style ambiance, great centeral York location, great food and drinks.
Great overnight stay. Only one grumble and that was Room No.5 is very small and cramped. Little sound proofing so you can hear people moving around and talking outide the room in the common areas. Still warm and comfortable though. We would definitely return but would seek a larger room and probably on a higher floor.

Great location

Really enjoyed my one night stay here - loved the fact it is so old - lots of atmosphere. We were there on a Sunday night and there was music playing but unable to get a table so that was disappointing. Room was very small but also very clean. Good pressure in shower and bed was comfy. Disappointed we could only stay the one night as they were fully booked the next night. Great breakfast the next morning.

Quirky hotel but overpriced

authentic cenral hotel, good food.
Small room with tiny shower en suite. Wonderful view of York Minster. I think the hotel is cashing in on the view because the room was certainly not worth the price we paid. A very comfortable bed but we had sleepless nights due to the position of the hotel. Although the food was very good, the service at breakfast was disorganised.

Not Good Experience

Location, Location, Location
位置不错,但是酒店的设施真是太差了,刚入住的时候,房间主灯是坏的;反反复复催促了服务生四五次,才有人来修理;修理的时间尽然花了1个小时。服务水平也超差,我们退房后,寄存的东西尽然放在厨房里的垃圾楼里;等去拿的时候书包外面都有黄色的油迹。酒店的Reception 1天到晚都是拥堵的,20平米的地方时刻都有十几个老外在那里喝酒;现在想想他们可能是酒吧和住宿都经营;房间不是很多,所以他们根本不在乎住宿,更多是care酒吧经营吧。约克本身就小,所以位置好的优势其实并不那么重要;1500左右以前的消费,在约克可以住的更好、更大、更方便的。
