We stayed in room 24 which is in a building just off the main hotel and what a find this was! The room is a Suite and certainly has the wow factor. High stained glass windows greet you as you walk in which have blinds you electronically bring down at bed time. The king size bed has an overhead solid carved canopy which could well be antique and the bed is very comfortable. We slept like logs. Our favourite part was the bathroom which looks like part of an old chapel. It has huge solid wood church doors to enter and then beautiful arched windows with lots of stonework and beams and a big room.
The Suite has been lovingly put together, both stylish and period looking. Quality has gone into all the components to make this very special, quiet and tranquil.
The other plus side to our location is that we came out of the building through some gates and we were but a moments walk to the Cathedral, Castle, pubs and restaurants.. You couldn't ask for a better location than that. Breakfast was a generous affair. Lots of choice, too much toast! Outside in the evening you can go into the garden and see the ruins of the medieval Bishop residence lit up in all its glory.
Already booked to go back in December it truly is a great find for us. Try it for yourselves you wont be disappointed but definitely go for a Suite.
