Couldn't be bettered
This hotel was perfect for our 2 night stay.
A beautiful medieval building where we climbed a steep and narrow staircase to our lovely room. There was fresh drinking water each day plus the usual tea, coffee and biscuits, a good shower and comfortable bed. When our left-over pizza from the excellent Italian restaurant downstairs went missing with the cleaner the next day, another one was instantly cooked fresh for our lunch, which we enjoyed outside in the sun, with a beer, looking at the wonderful cathedral. Every one of the staff could not have been more helpful, morning, noon and night. Thank you for a great stay. (Anyone with a car should note that there is no room for hotel parking, so unload and go and park elsewhere.)
