The recently refurbished room was clean, as you would expect, and comfortable. However, there was only one bathrobe and only one packet of biscuits on the tea tray, not what you would expect in a double room. I was asked to pay in cash as the credit card machine wasn't working. Strange.
The breakfast was nothing special though the lady serving it was very pleasant. At £100 a night I felt the room was over priced, £75-£80 would have been more appropriate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 17 century English Heritage Listed Building with origins going back to the 14th century - restored and decorated to the highest standards.6 en-suite rooms - 2 with views of castle and cathedral the others looking over the historic street of Crossgate - one of the medieval routes where the ancient road from England to Scotland forded the River Wear and on which the city was originally founded - this unprepossessing street predates the castle and cathedral.The house is the closest residential property of all to the town centre and is only a few minutes walk from the castle and cathedral , the historic centre , shopping streets and restaurants. This can mean that the street is sometimes lively and noisy at night usually at weekends due to the fact that we are a prestigious university city with many boisterous young people out and about. We do however have double glazing and the highest quality beds to help you have a goodnight sleep before a full English breakfast cooked fresh to order with cereals , juices , and freshly cut fruit salad. ... more less
