Friendly and welcoming reception staff. Well equipped and clean room and shower room. Very comfortable bed and splendid views of the Cathedral. The breakfast was of a very high caliber offering a good range of choice. Vegetarian full English was very enjoyable. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place and will be returning.

This is our second time at the lodge, this time my daughter's family stayed too. Both of our rooms looked out onto the Cathedral, and it looks better in the evening when it is lit up. As you are in the grounds of the Cathedral, you can wander around the grounds and have unlimited access to the Cathedral. The rooms... More

A clean and pleasant lodge, fantastic breakfast, wonderful staff and comfortable beds. But all this is minor compared to view of the cathedral outside your window. The price is very reasonable when you consider the large breakfast included as well as free entrance to cathedral and parking onsite. It was so convenient to be located centrally and have easy walking... More

Hotel is within the cathedral close so it wasn't simple to find, but what an experience when first within the ancient walls. The lodge itself is fairly recent, and rooms nice... More
