my partner booked this as a surprise romantic night away, and i was not disappointed. We arrived just after lunch and went straight to the hotel, where we were shown straight up to our room, number3. It was lovely, with a 4 poster bed. The room was decoracted in an old fashioned style, but not dated it was very tastefully done. Unfortunately we did not dine at the hotel, but the smell of the food was fantastic and downstairs in the restuarant appeared busy. However the location was great just in the centre, it was quite noisy, with the minster bells and streams of people going past. The room itself was very hot and the windows had to be kept open, which also did not help. There were no bottles of water in our room which i could have done with and was a pain. The lighting was also poor. I realise that the hotel is supposed to be authentic, even a lamp on the dresser drawers where there is a mirror would have been useful. The breakfast was great and very tasty, however we went back to our room to get ready and staff told us that the windows were being cleaned, we had to shut the windows and close the curtains, which made the lighting conditions even worse, but i know this has to be done at some point! overall i would definatley recommed this hotel, our stay was lush.
