We were in the 'Belfry' in the attic space. A couple of flights of stairs, with another up to the attic. Spacious room, seperate bathroom and living Room, original features and tastefully decorated. Ceiling very low so if you are over 5ft 4 you will need to bow your head in most places! But as we were pretty much there only for sleeping, this wasn't a problem. It is right next to the minster, next to a few more pubs/bars so can be noisy at night, but this settled once pubs started to close, however, you don't get traffic noise as its not situated on a main thro road. Food wise, we only had breakfast, full English which was ok.
Handy location, clean and spacious, nice food, not bad value for money and staff very helpful and friendly.
