This is a nice, traditional (if rather old fashioned) English hotel. Location is good, about five minutes walk from the Minster. The rooms are big and clean, with all the usual facilities. Bed was comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very nice. There's a lounge area and a bar. Would probably suit older travellers very well as has quite a nostalgic air, but was also reasonably child friendly. Teenagers may not be so appreciative of the oil paintings and regency atmosphere. There's also nothing for young people to do at the hotel (no gym/pool/games rooms etc.).
Only downside was the plumbing, which was noisy and not terribly reliable, and the heating, which had two settings - too hot, and too cold. The windows were also rather rattly and draughty, though I was staying during exceptionally high winds so this may not be such a problem normally.
