Guy Fawkes Inn

Guy Fawkes Inn

4.0 out of 5.0
4.1 out of 5 (44 reviews)
Location is great, really nice friendly staffEnjoyed my stay and even though we was on the first floor the noise from the bar was hardly noticeable. I’d say you are paying more for the location than room size. Yet even the breakfast was good value for money and set you up for the day.

Beautiful hotel in a convenient location Very convenient location. Beautiful shared areas. Friendly and helpful staff. The only improvement required is the flush in the bedroom that took an extended time to refill and it was very noisy.

Grand structureWhere else can you stay in an impressive building at such competitive rates. There are both good & bad aspects to the Grand Hotel, one pleasing point was that contrary to other reviews I found the staff to be very friendly & accommodating. First room provided can only be described as disgusting with ...

Boutique hotel in central YorkGreat location within easy walking distance of the train station. Rooms are small with very little hanging or storage space. Fine for a weekend, but no good for a longer stay. Rooms are quirky and well themed with the overall Judges Court theme.

Plenty of parking close to shopsHotel is a short walking distance from shops, which is a walk down hill, the way back is made easier as several buses take you very near the hotel. It's only one stop but it's better than feeling breathless. The hotel is very nice but does need renovating. We were a party of 5 and really enjoyed ...

Handy central locationDon't be fooled by the rather ordinary look of the bar when you enter the pub, the rooms upstairs are very clean, contemporary and comfortable. Our room was quite spacious with a large comfy bed, settee and table with tea/coffee making facilities. The ensuite looked fairly new with an over the bath ...

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and one of the most diverse. From unspoiled countryside to welcoming rural villages and exciting family attractions, this fabulous county has it all. The county is also packed with historical attractions, making it a particular hit among history buffs. The number of historic hotels in North Yorkshire is also astounding, meaning visitors can feel the magic of this special county throughout their holiday.

Historic York

York is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, filled with stunning old buildings and pretty, pedestrianised streets. York's charms and attractions make it the second most-visited city in the UK, lagging only behind the nation's capital.

Highlights around York include the famous Clifford's Tower, the Dungeon and the Jorvik Viking Centre. The National Railway Museum is also well worth the visit.

As you'd expect from such a popular city, York has no shortage of exquisite hotels and guesthouses, the bulk of which are within easy walking distance of all the city's major attractions.

Period Properties

Across North Yorkshire, visitors will find an abundance of period properties, many of which retain plenty of original features. Many of the finest buildings in North Yorkshire's towns and cities have now been converted into hotels, allowing holidaymakers to get up close and personal with the most stunning buildings in the county.

The Grange Hotel in York is a fine example of what's on offer. The hotel is housed within a Grade II listed Regency manor. The interior is finished to a high standard, with furnishings sensitive to the property's aesthetic.

Traditional Inns

You don't have to book into a ritzy five-star hotel to soak up the feel of a traditional North Yorkshire property. The county is also blessed with a huge number of traditional inns like The Castle Tavern in Richmond.

The Castle Tavern offers four guest rooms, all set back from the quintessentially English bar area. Guests can enjoy free WiFi, an open fire and some sumptuous local grub. The lively market town of Richmond has a rich history, which visitors will be keen to unlock in the local museum.
