We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday and the whole experience was wonderful.
Fantastic location and very worth paying the extra for parking 'on site'. To be able to just wander round and, on the Sunday morning stroll over to the morning service in the Cathedral surrounded by such history was very special.
Welcoming greeting from reception and the room was perfectly adequate for our needs. Not the top end of hotel luxury but a warm and clean room reflecting a functional purpose. Not much hanging space or drawers but this didn't matter to us. The bathroom was good with large fluffy white towels. Wonderful view when opening the curtains!
Lovely breakfast with friendly atmosphere. All the staff friendly and helpful.
One very very minor observation: the refectory could do with some appropriate blinds! Sitting in front of the big windows in full morning sun it was blinding and somewhat hot. Choose your table accordingly!
A memorable stay and we'll return.
