Arriving at the airport in HCMC we are amazed to find ourselves being checked in by one of the girls we met on our snorkelling tour on Phu Quoc island. She gives us a huge smile when she sees us and gestures to her colleague who was also on the tour who gives us a big smile and wave.
David and I cheekily ask her for the upgrade we had ...

The last leg of our journey was described as a very steep slope - not an understatement! After following a very narrow path for at least a mile, we had a steep descent to a rapidly flowing stream which we had to cross. Then looked up to see the path continued almost straight up. What a feeling of accomplishment to climb it!
Our reward, once again, was another terrific pub ...
... once again, turned a beautiful bright blue, the clouds were white and fluffy, and the temperatures became quite pleasant.
The last part of our journey went up an incline, through a field and then up a dirt road to the parking spot. On the way, we passed a flock of sheep and we saw our first lamb of the season. It was adorable!
We then motored to Osmotherly for a pub lunch at the ...
Sunday 23rd. Over Africa. We're on the plane now heading home, Air France this time not KL-bloody-M, so I'm full of Cahmpagne, Cognac and Camembert, feeling mellow. Robbie's watching The Great Gatsby, and I've just been listening to Led Zep on the in flight entertainment facilities. This morning the howling wind still raged across Camps Bay. The Swiss landlady at the B&B said it's quite ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Guy Fawkes Inn York
We had an overnight stay here last month, the rooms are lovely and the breakfasts second to none. Unfortunately the inconsiderate guests next door had the tv on until the early hours which kept us awake.
We encountered a problem with drunks when we came back to the hotel. They tried to follow us into the hotel and got nasty when my husband refused to let them in. To finish off our night we found someone had bumped the car while it was in the car park in Bootham.
All in all the hotel couldnt be faulted but the other incidents spoiled our stay.
Im afraid to say we wont be staying over in York again it seems to have the "yob culture" that every other UK city has.
We drive a jeep (apologies eco warriors!) and made it clear to reservations that as such we needed ample secure parking as we were on route to Scottish Highlands and had loads of gear in car.
Lovely hotel with four posters and modern bathrooms, helpful and friendly staff, great location though you have to use public carparks. Would definitely use again.
Ok but a few problems.
Decor and room of very good standard.
Problem with water pressure at peak times (but tell me which hotels dont) and the bathroom smelled foisty.
Breakfast and service good.
Position very good but very noisy at night, lots of drunk yobbos about and the delivery vehicles and refuge men start at the crack of dawn.
Stayed at Hotel,12-15th August having cancelled booking at The York Royal Hotel. Great decision in hindsight. Mother-in-law stayed at The Royal and hated every minute, useless staff, poor cleanliness including bedroom (£200 suite per night),expensive drinks, expensive parking, smallest wine list in the world etc etc. Back to the Guy Fawkes. Excellent location, excellent value for money, clean,very attentive and friendly staff, great room with top bathroom facilities. Breakfast very good and we found the rooms very quiet at night(room 2- The Queeen Elizabeth). If you fancy staying in the historic, sight seeing part of York then this in an excellent base. Only quibble, Tony(Owner) please offer some real butter with the breakfast, that margarine was pants. The Hotel was soo good it was a shame the other members of our family hadnt cancelled their Royal booking and stayed with us, Soph the Roph would have loved it!
My wife and I were at the Guy Fawkes Saturday and Sunday evening. Staff did a fine job. Two you ladies carried our very heavy bags to the 3rd floor room. Dinner Saturday evening was splindid. Only sorry that the dinning room is closed on Sunday. Our room faced the street and got a bit noisy during the night. Suggest a room in the rear of the hotel. Room was well appointed and clean. The bath had been completely remodeled and was certainly up to US standards. Strongly reommend.
I haven't seen nicer or more helpful staff. The perfect location, right next to the Minster, very romantic, nice views. Excellent breakfast and dinner.
Reasonable prices. Nice and clean rooms (all named after Kings and Queens). Only the staircase is very old, looks ready to collapse;I think they should do something about it. But overall I was very happy. The whole town itself is so different to the rest of UK and civilized. Don't miss the Castle Museum. The Minster is probably the best Cathedral I've ever been to.
My wife and I stayed here for two nights as part of a two week trip through England and Scotland. There was a little bit of confusion with our reservation and we almost went to a different hotel. When we did arrive at the hotel we were glad we decided to stick with our original choice. It is perfectly located, right across the street from York Minster and convenient to all the shops and restaurants. The decor in the hotel was new and very nice - it had a boutique hotel sort of style. The room was fairly spacious and was decorated nicely. The breakfast was also very good.
excellent hotel...friendly helpful staff...great food in the restaurant...reasonable prices
My husband and I stayed here on Friday and Saturday evenings. On arriving at the hotel we were able to park the car outside the hotel for a few minutes whilst the owner helped us with our luggage and showed us to our room (7 with fabulous views of the Minster).
