I have previously visited this hotel on business and was inspired to take my wife for a weekend away. The staff immediately make you feel special and welcome - the luggage was taken in, the car was parked for us and we were shown to our room. Although a standard room it was very large and well equipped with a huge bathroom. The attention to detail is superb and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. Didn't eat in the restaurant but only because there was a local bistro we had been urged by friends to try. The bar area is very homely with attentive but relaxed service and a staggering selection of whiskies. The position could not be better - 5 mins walk from the Minster. The staff could not do enough for us and the whole atmosphere was relaxing rather than formal. Breakfast was good with a comprehensive continental buffet as well as a great range of cooked offerings. The standard room tariff is not cheap but watch out for offers. Sadly didn't get the chance to check out the spa which I am told is fantastic. Thoroughly recommended
