We were there as part of a function and stayed two nights and on the first night ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent; very tasty and beautifully served. However, on the second night (Saturday) the food served at the function was nowhere near as good. It seems that mass catering on that night failed for us anyway. If this has been an important occasion, such as a wedding, I would have been very disappointed. Also the room we had was very small although it had everything required in a hotel room - perhaps there was too much furniture to make it comfortable – we had to keep squeezing passed a piece of furniture every time we went to the bathroom! The views of the cathedral were spectacular.
