a great place to stay
We stayed for just one night. Great position beside cathedral in the town centre, but not noisy. The building is very old, has an interesting history and is full of character. Staff were friendly and helpful, obviously taken great care to keep visitors safe, our room was very clean and and had been fogged between guests. We took the continental breakfast which was generous, freshly prepared and very good. Would recommend a stay here and we would certainly come again.
