Dear Eric W, Thank you for your "brilliant" review, i am so pleased that you loved the hotel, our location is the best in the City, next to the Minster and as you rightly state 10 minutes from any where else.

Dear Edith S Thank you for your review. We are all pleased at the hotel to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us and would look to stay with us again. 23 out of our 37 rooms are front facing and whilst they do offer pleasant views the rooms some of our guests can sometimes hear some external noise but it is nice to know that this did not detract away from your enjoyable experience. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future., Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
