Another visit for us and The Old Deanery never fails to impress. We stayed in room 2 again, which we love because of how spacious it is. Linda gave us a great deal on the room, with breakfast included and always tries to look after you as best she can. The night we stayed, we were the only ones in... More

It is a very lovely, quiet and comfort "hotel" which I can truly recommend! This hotel is near perfect! Great location, attractive public rooms, comfortable and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, attentive service, good breakfasts and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Well done to all concerned!

The room was very Comfortable and very large. The evening meal was to die for. The chef is newish, and is really inventive, I understand he went quite a long way in the TV program Master Chef and it shows! Breakfast was also to a high standard and not rushed. We will certainly go back . The Old Deanery was... More

What can I say? What a fantastic hotel with brilliant staff. We stayed in the four poster room which was so spacious. Bed was comfortable and slept like a log. Staff were great. We were greeted by Paul (duty manager) who showed us to our room and gave us a tour of the hotel. Brilliant. Will stay again

This beautiful building was host to our daughter's wedding 30th January 2016, the day turned out just as the bride and groom wanted and more. The staff were fantastic, not just on the day, but in advance when all the little details needed confirming in order to make sure everything went to plan. The venue is so flexible, we had... More

We stayed for one night on a Friday and had an excellent visit. Close to the Cathedral and the town centre where we found plenty of pubs and restaurants. The room was as requested, clean with a ensuite and walk in shower. The staff were great, friendly, helpful and cheerful as they went about their work. Breakfast was from a... More

The hotel staff really went beyond our expectations to make our visit special. The hotel itself is overlooked by the cathedral and a short walk from some good restaurants and bars. At the time of booking we were made aware of the Christmas fair going on at the hotel, which we weren't aware of happening but was a nice little... More

We arrived over an hour early for our afternoon tea reservation. The staff were welcoming and friendly and said it was no problem at all to leave our car in the car park while we had a wander around the town (3 min walk). We ate in the dining area just off the bar. Incidentally, the bar was really welcoming... More
