... bigger than ours and are very good at catching chips mid-air. Walked through the quaint little streets and shops up the 100 or so steps to the Abbey which is just beautiful , boys liked it as a backdrop for action videos. Was so nice to catch up with Paul and Carol. Left late in afternoon and stopped for some pints of Yorkshire Terrier and a carvery dinner ( ...
... Minster. Met a group of really lovely ladies that we are related to, Aunty Doreen, her daughters Anne and Janet and cousin Maddy. We all had an enjoyable lunch at Lucia's and looked at old photos (what fabulous legs you had Audrey!). Boys were quiet well behaved and even earned some pocket money from the ladies. We wrapped up the day with dinner at Table Table again. What a great day. We will miss our big Sis Sue ...
... found us coveting a brand new A3 sized printer at an extremely reasonable price. This could be an investment. This means no more trips back would be necessary. This means we could retire that old plotter once and for all. Back on the boat a few measurements were taken (we have to be sure new things will fit), and the decision was made to hand over the cash for a brand new ...
... through the terms and conditions with a bit of fiddling we've managed to get a return crossing for a measly pound. We're booking it for late evening so we definitely make it but its a load of our mind that we're not going to break the bank crossing the Channel.
Oh and as part of the deal I had to buy a return ticket, so if anyone wants a Calais-Dover ticket on Tuesday 15th just tell me.
... Germans were planning to bomb Coventry. They were faced with the tough decision of whether to protect Coventry, or to let it take the hit so that the Germans didn't realize that their messages could be read by the British. Taking the side of the "better good", Coventry was left unprotected, and the whole town was literally wiped off the map. The architects hired to restore the Cathedral decided not to do so, ...

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).
