I spotted this hotel on the Web, and we booked early through the hotel's own website, which was really user-friendly. We were on our way home from a 2-week driving tour of Europe, and I must say that this was exactly the right hotel for a spot of peace after the frantic driving we'd just done. We paid a little...

We are regular visitors to this hotel now - have just booked for next week as well. The obvious appeal is the setting: the grounds are so peaceful and the view of the cathedral is breathtaking. The hotel itself is great, and the staff can't be more helpful. Recommend the breakfast, and if you get the chance (& we're not... More

Room good, although bathroom a little small. On upside, view of the Cathedral from the room. Good breakfast, Steps away from the Cathedral where we much enjoyed Evensong. Also very short walk out of the precinct into the shopping area.

We stayed here the night before a graduation at The Cathedral. We have stayed before and again cannot fault this hotel. The staff we extremely pleasant, car parking was easy when booked way ahead and a space reserved. The breakfast is always fantastic and freshly cooked. The rooms are so comfortable and quiet. Our room was quite near reception but... More

It is the first place where I would live in; the hole place is incredible; the acomodations of the hotel and the service is great, the Precint is outstanding and the Cathedral is simply the most beautiful worship place that I've been in; the cript is beyond description. Everybody need to go there sometime!

Great place to stay, really good location. Room had a view of the cathedral. Good facilities, tea coffee selection etc. Staff really friendly and helpful. Some discounts organised with local restaurants. Breakfast was excellent. Only slight downside the room isn't huge and the bed is a double which being used to a king felt a bit small. But would stay... More

Faultless says it all. Wedding Planner had it organised and had listened, was unfazed by anything, staff knew what to do what was required and even corrected table plan and seating as it changed on day!

To be honest I think this hotel really deserves 4 1/2 stars ! We really enjoyed our stay. The setting is wonderful and we were lucky to get a room with a cathedral view. The reason I marked it down was that although the room was clean (5 stars to the house keeping team) some of the furniture was a... More
