The Bishops Table is currently enjoying a major refurbishment and I stayed in one of the new rooms overlooking the courtyard at the back of the hotel. It was very well appointed, comfortable and quiet with a superb en suite bathroom and one of the best showers I have used for a very long time. Only minor criticism would be...

Very nice room and shower. I stayed in one of the new boutique ensuites in the courtyard. The quality of the decoration was fantastic, dab radio, rain shower, nice tea and biscuits. Nice continental breakfast...although a cooked option would have been better.

Stayed at the Bishops Table while doing a course at Squires Kitchen, for which I was given a discount. The service was exemplary. The room was more than comfortable and was a higher standard than expected. There is refurbishment going on, but that did not prevent it being a very comfortable stay. 5 stars from me. Will be staying again.

Firstly, a positive. The rooms were very nice... but that is it. The big issue here people is that whilst the Bishop's Table purports to being a refurbished hotel, it doesn't tell you that the actual hotel is currently closed for refurbishment. The website states, in one place, that the renovations will be completed in 2017 but it doesn't say...

We spent two nights at the Bishop's Table while attending a wedding nearby. The original hotel is being completely rebuilt to include a restaurant and living/gathering rooms. Behind the main building are three brand new buildings designed to compliment the original. Rooms are a good size; king beds, nice bathrooms, good heating and air-conditioning. We were offered a continental breakfast...

This hotel is wonderfully positioned for the castle. The rooms are very modern and extremely comfortable, but what was more impressive was the service.
