Guy Fawkes Inn 4* 80%

City Centre
25 High Petergate
Guests staying at the Guy Fawkes Inn in York are experiencing a little piece of English history. It was here on High Petergate that the leader of the notorious Gunpowder Plot of 1605 was born.

Though steeped in history the Guy Fawkes Inn offers visitors to the city a welcoming boutique-style hotel experience. For accommodation these is a choice of 13 well-appointed rooms offering the luxury of comfortable beds, Italian fabrics, and in fitting with the building antique furniture.

There is a tempting range of accommodation available; including Executive Double, Deluxe Double, Four Poster and the Belfry Suite. All rooms and suites offer ensuite toilets and bathrooms, desk, flatscreen TV, radio, facilities for ironing facilities and complimentary toiletries. A wake up service is also available.

The Guy Fawkes Inn boasts real character and this is reflected in the establishment’s restaurant. It lacks all pretension with wooden tables sitting on timber floors, giving it all an air of yesteryear. The menu is unpretentious as well and is described as good quality pub food. Diners are offered a choice from the a la carte menu, sandwich menu, breakfast menu and the intriguingly named “Conspirators Menu.” Whatever the choice, dishes are prepared with good quality fresh produce.

That high quality beers are served in this establishment should come as no surprise; after all, it is an inn. Real ales are a particular favourite with beers from regional breweries, especially from Yorkshire, on tap.

The Guy Fawkes Inn’s location at the centre of York makes it the perfect place to stay, especially for tourists intent on visiting the city’s historic sites. York Minster is just a few steps away while a stroll down the Shambles, a visit to the National Railway Museum or York Castle Museum, or a chance to admire the city walls are all within easy distance.
