Ok, let's start with the one star we've awarded: they had a room at the last minute (we phoned from the car on the motorway and other places were fully booked - was that a clue?). The location is fantastic (but noisy on a Saturday night!).
Now the four stars it didn't get: the decor is appalling. The hotel is centuries old, but the furniture and decor is tasteless and not in keeping with the building: not stylish, contemporary or modern and not traditional either - just cheap and tacky. Don't be fooled by the pictures. This place is tackorama (they boasted of a recent redecoration). The Cathedral view room looks over a shopping street with a few inches of the Cathedral spires visible. Very disappointing. We were promised a jacuzzi, but it was a standard bath. Then there was the shower that had no hot water (despite hot water coming out of the basin taps) and no heat in the heated towel rail. But the piece de resistance was the 'clean' bed linens that were stained by a previous guest's period (yes, they had been washed and put back on the bed). Not what one expects for £180 per night!
We don't recommend this to anyone!
