Not for those seeking the usual bog standard Hotel .What a wonderful " lodging house" this turned out to be! Although our room (No 5) was compact it was "beautifully formed" with a French bed , superb en suite with a great shower, Large flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities.Fresh towels daily.
The location of the Hotel cant be beaten right in the heart of the City next door to the Minster and very close to the shops.
The decor is perfect, original floorboards and period looking textiles, the dining room is lit by the original gas lamps and candles and is very atmospheric!.
What made the stay special however, were the staff who were all absolutely lovely and so helpful.The dinner menu was very good and very resonable. We had crab salad and fish and chips the first night and there was too much to eat and the fish was SO fresh.
Breakfasts also very big with a large selection of choices available.
Because parking is a short walk away it is best to drive to the front of the Minster and deliver luggage to the hotel which is a few staps away in a pedestrian area (someone needs to stay with the car). That said once parked you can forget the car and just enjoy the city on foot.
I would DEFINATELY visit this Hotel again. I absolutely LOVED IT!
