I stayed at Cathedral Gate Hotel for 5 nights in April and would recommend the house in all ways! On first because of the central location in the city center, next to the Cathedral and Christ Church Gate as its access. From here everything was really easy to reach on foot.
In advance of my stay, directly after booking, the staff made every effort via email to offer me a "suitable" room for my stay. So it turned out to be the just renovated room "Dawn" with splendid views towards the Cathedral and the very peaceful precincts. The room was small, cute, very clean and quiet, nicely furnished and equipped with TV and tea and coffee making facilities. As a single room it had a shared bathroom; on my floor with 4 rooms in total there were two freshly and very tastefully renovated bathrooms that were spotlessly clean at any time of the day. The house itself was originally built in 1230 (I hope I remember right) and breathes the Middle Ages pure. Narrow staircases that open up several tracts, here a few steps, there some low lintels, sloping floors. All very charming if you are not physically restricted. My continental breakfast, included in the price of the room, has always been a good basis for the day out. There were tea / coffee / chocolate, cereals, croissants, toast, jam, yogurt and every morning a fresh fruit salad only made by fresh – and often exotic - fruit without a single piece of canned fruit. Every morning it was served in a most friendly way by the staff in the 2 charming breakfast rooms overlooking the Butter Market. This unexcited friendliness of both the owner and all staff has to be mentioned at last: You could feel their desire, to make every guest's stay as pleasant as possible.
So if you are looking for a house with soul, history and authenticity, choose the Cathedral Gate Hotel! You won´t regret!
