Firstly don't be put off by some of the recent reviews regarding no hot water. This was a very short term problem! The hotel is a hideous 70s style planning nightmare from the outside but it is in a wonderful location right in the City centre adjacent the cathedral. Paying a but extra for a cathedral view seems worth it... More

We had no hot water for our stay. The staff were not bothered and... More

I stayed here for two nights during some very hot weather. Unfortunately, the hotel was very full and so could only have a "small double" for the first night then was able to move into a larger room with better facilities. The hotel is very well located right in the heart of city, next to the Cathedral, Shops and Restaurants.... More

great location, central and walking distance to the cathedral. I recomment the rooms overlooking the cathedral, the view from these rooms are very good and worth paying the upgrade fee. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I will go there again.
