Barbican House was a lovely place to stay. My friend and I debated whether staying near the Minster or on the far opposite side at the Barbican. Despite being far from the more popular inn area, we were very close to the wall and there were plenty enough restaurants and pubs to enjoy without all the hassle of crowds and pedestrian noise. We didn't meet the current proprietors, but we met the former proprietors Juliet and Michael, who were playing host while the current owners were on holiday. They were lovely people and very accommodating. The place was beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, towels were huge and fluffy, tons of amenities in the room, and we enjoyed our stay immensely. One note: while it didn't bother us at all, if traffic noise irritates you, ask for a room on the highest floor or facing the back.
