No parking, no-one to help with taking bags to room (steep narrow stairs), small room, dirty room window, en-suite in need of re decoration (tatty and rusting by shower, vinyl flooring lifting), new mattress needed to complete the four poster, dinner was fine although the restaurant felt bare and unwelcoming, breakfast was served across the road in the sister hotel, a service charge was added to our bill without us being notified, we stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast rate and weren't told of the sub charges for certain items on the menu, we wanted to check out straight after breakfast as we had a long drive home but had to hang around until 11am as the reception was closed. Fantastic location being in the middle of the city, lovely sitting room with a cathedral view, this hotel has masses of potential and could be so much more!
