Not a bad place, our room had been recently refurbished. Had requested a cathedral view but despite checking in at 11am none was available. Lighting in the rooms is terrible,- too low and moody, not great for putting on makeup.
The bath in our room would have taken about 4 hours to fill, but shower was ok.
there was a wedding going on the night we stayed - meant parking at even more of a premium and had to walk through a crowd of rather rough types smoking and drinking to get into the hotel.
But for £105 it was value for money.
