Stayed here for one night over Christmas. The hotel is very well located close the city centre and train station. The rooms are full of character and even though the hotel is close to a busy road, the windows are double glazed and there is hardly any noise. The breakfast is excellent - a real English breakfast. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would recommend this hotel.

My three friends and I shared a comfortable family room. Great linen on the bed, good breakfast in the morning with amiable, helpful staff. Great location just a five minute walk from the high street. Lovely, large shower room. All four of us were very impressed and thought the family room was great value for money for a weekend break. Although we were there in February we could tell that the garden would be lovely in the summer. Even a proper hairdryer was supplied We would all recommend this guest house - it felt more like a hotel than some mid-range hotels!

The TV was not tuned into digital which we thought was a little retrograde. Other than that no complaints!

I was staying with my 19 yr old son. Great location 2 min walk from the Cathedral, shops and restaurants. Ample free parking, WiFi and the best twin share room we stayed in during our trip. Clean, warm and very well appointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful with a good, help yourself breakfast.

Great location! Short walk into town. Free parking on site, a little small but works. Breakfast food was good but could have used more help serving.

Room Tip: Our room #8 was a nice size, but a light shone in behind the bed all night.
