After nearly a year of planning, what an amazing party we had. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went smoothly on the night. The food was tasty and plentiful. The events team worked hard to make everything perfect. Those of us who stayed, found the hotel rooms clean, comfortable and with the Cathedral views a very pleasant place to stay. The breakfasts were simply delicious with lots of choice. The location is amazing. Right in the city centre, easy walking distance to so many attractions. On the whole, an ace weekend spent with friends and family. Thank you to the lodge for a wonderful weekend.

We stayed one night in one of the rooms in the adjacent building, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Very nice clean bedroom with a big ensuite bathroom, and right next to the cathedral, couldn't have asked for more. Delicious breakfast too cooked to order!
