Explore Hotel

A cosy, traditional York pub-hotel

Still lit by real gas lamps and candles, and right next to York Minster, this historic pub offers chic guestrooms (with exposed beams and antique furniture) in a 3-storey Georgian townhouse that is a joy to call home-from-home. The infamous Guido Fawkes was born on this very spot in 1570, and our welcoming hotel is therefore as rich in history as it is in charm.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your recent visit I'm sorry you felt our live music was 'average at best' Gypsy Bill plays every Sunday evening and our customers travel from all over just to see him and i believe the packed bar every Sunday evening speaks for itself but i appreciate that blues music isn't going to be to everybodies taste. The member of staff that dealt with you and asked you to leave after believing you had already had enough to drink normally recieves such high praise for his exceptional service so i'm shocked to hear you found him and the rest of our staff to be rude and obnoxious. We do take incidents like this very seriously so i will be speaking to the staff on that evening to ensure that staff are professional and friendly at all times. Sorry if our toilets weren't up to scratch on your visit, we do regularely check and clean our toilets but at busy times i'm sure you can understand it's not always possible to keep on top of them as it is at quieter periods. Had you let our staff know we would have seen to them right away and replaced the toilet roll. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us Thank you again for your feedback Laura
