The best place to stay! Comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and a building full of history (including a museum, a secret catholic church and even the mummified hand of a martyr!) Good value too! But the true treasure here? The staff. They made my stay truly unforgettable.

“Our room over-looked Nunnery Lane, which is a busy road - would suggest ear plugs, if you're not used to traffic noise at night.”
