Fantastic location; actually part of the Cathedral. Quirky 16th Century building without a level floor or straight wall :-). Great staff and great breakfast. Check out Evensong when the Tocsin Bell tolls

Great hotel . Staff were lovely and attentive and Monica stayed really late to check us in as we had been delayed by the storms. Comfy bed and very clean. Location right next to cathedral entrance. Would definitely return

Great location and a warm welcome. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious. The breakfast was good if a bit meagre. While we thought the layout quirky some might find it a bit challenging given the many steep stairs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our state at Cathedral Gate.

The staff was wonderful, very friendly and extremely helpful. The person at the desk carried our luggage to the room and made some great restaurant recommendations.

We were in the Augustan Room which faced the main street. We were there for two of the hottest days of the season, and the room did not have air conditioning. This was not a deal breaker for us given the charm and age of the hotel. There was a fan, and we were able to open the windows. The room included a kettle, small television, desk, and bureau. It could have used an extra towel rack in the bathroom, but there was plenty of hot water and good water pressure.

This is an old building. It was built before the gates to the cathedral were installed. The floors slope and there is no elevator. We liked the uniqueness, but others might not. It did get noisy on Saturday night, but we used the provided earplugs.

The hotel is in a great location to walk to the major tourist attractions and both train stations.

The continental breakfast was included in the price of the room, and it was hosted in a very pretty sunroom at the front of the hotel. The croissants were amazing. There was fresh fruit salad, oatmeal, a variety of choices, and the fresh flowers on the table were a nice touch.

Give it a try!
