We stayed here for 3 nights with our best friends and we both booked Superior rooms. I requested a room overlooking the Cathedral and we got the one in the title picture (Room 41). We were not disappointed; the room was well decorated and clean. The bathroom wasn't huge but it was certainly large enough for us. Our friends had a lovely room without the view (Room 48) but they had a small TV lounge and also a much larger bathroom! We got a good deal with evening meals included so ate in the restaurant each night and found the food and service excellent, even when a large party of 41 (who were all staying) arrived to dine at the same time. The staff were courteous and very helpful and we had fun with them on their cancer charity pink-day. We will have no hesitation in returning.
