I agree that the hotel is very well situated, the bar and communal areas very nice, the bathroom clean and the staff friendly and helpful! If I was to review it on those things alone, I would...

Stayed here several weeks ago for a weekend break and was very impressed. The location is great, right in the High St. The room was clean, and the ambience in the lounge bar is very nice. The staff are very professional and give attention to detail.

Ours had a huge bed, a leather sofa, flat screen TV, free standing bath plus wet room. It was lovely. The location of the hotel couldn't be more central and was really convenient for the cathedral, wall,... More

Even though they have limited parking at the hotel we were lucky and got a space and after calling into reception they sent out the lovely concierge Alex to help us transfer all our bags... More
