This newly built hotel is very handily situated within the city walls and close to the city centre tourist attractions. The room was a good size and clean with very comfortable beds. Facilities included a tv, ironing board, iron and a small tea/coffee tray. (No biscuits) Thee en suite shower room and toilet was fine for our limited stay. If staying longer I would have liked a room with a bath. A serve yourself breakfast was included in the price and offered a selection of cereals, yoghurts, fruit and hot items. On arrival the reception staff were helpful in finding a freshly prepared room and allowing us to check in at 1200 rather than at the advertised time of 1400. This enabled us to change in our room and attend a 1400 wedding in the Minster. The biggest drawback to this hotel is the lack of its own car park. There is an arrangement for parking at an NCP car park about two hundred metres from the hotel where there is a reduced rate for hotel guests of £10 for 24 hours as opposed to the full rate of £17.The essential requirement to secure the reduced rate is to have your parking ticket validated by the reception staff. I was handed a slip when I checked in which said there had been problems with the hotels car park ticket validating machine and sure enough when I tried to pay for my parking the charge came to £17. After contacting NCP I eventually secured the reduced rate. Incidentally finding the pay station in the car park was not easy as there was no sign to indicate that it was in the furthest corner of the car park from the exit barriers.
