My wife and I stayed here in March 2015 for one night, lovely old building totally in keeping with the location. A couple of minutes walk from the cathedral and the castle and not far from the city centre. Some nice touches such as honesty bar and complimentary tea & coffee in the lounge. Our rooms were warm, comfortable and... More

We really enjoyed our visit and would stay again. The mews was great for our family, with parking directly outside, no worries of disturbing other guests with two children. Great location and breakfast was served efficiently and was tasty. My boys would like to visit in summer and take advantage of the pool. The only slightly negative comment I would... More

Stayed with 2 friends on a sort of business trip and we found the hotel more than met our requirements. The staff were lovely and the honesty bar was a nice touch. Shower was great and was nice to have the added touch of a bath robe for after. Would recommend

I stayed with 2 friends in one of the cottages. The buildings themselves are lovely and the facilities were good. The cottage had its own lounge but there was also a well-equipped residents' lounge with honesty bar. Staff were friendly and helpful and gave us recommendations for restaurants. Breakfast in the next-door restaurant was simple but good value. The location... More

We found this wonderful small hotel purely by chance and I am so glad we did. The staff were extremely nice and welcoming. The room was as you would expect; clean and cosy with a very comfy bed. It is true the bathroom (room 2) was not of a high standard but it was clean and functional although the shower... More

The hotel is in an excellent location for the Cathedral Quarter and for exploring the independent shops on Steep Hill - and once down in the town there is a bus service to bring you back up the hill! The staff in the hotel itself were brilliant, helpful and friendly and there is a separate sitting area with tea/coffee making... More

Great location, staff were exemplary and a credit to the hotel, room (2) was very nice but let down by poor condition of the bathroom. Simple maintenance would elevate this hotel to a much higher standard but I see from previous reviews that the standard of the bathrooms has been a recurring comment. Owners take note and get it fixed!
