Although the room was comfortable the overhead fans were not sufficient for keeping us cool, so I was relieved that it wasn't in the summertime. The room was noisy in the night where people in the surrounding rooms thought they were still shouting over the noise of a bar. Also the windows weren't sufficient to drown out the traffic noise...

Stayed here for one night and that was enough. The dinnner and breakfast was included. Dinner 3 course was not up to standard had to send starter back and the desert was terrible. complained and they did refund me. The room was ok everything in but not very clean. Whole place needs an update. Not worth the money we paid....

Stayed for good Friday night. Didn't realise until after we booked that the hotel had a night club underneath which could be loud at weekends. The disco finished at 1:30pm which was fine for us, if you can't beat them join them! On saying this the hotel was really quiet and although there were ear plugs in the room, glad...

Hadn't been back since the Hotel had a fresh lick of paint and a much needed spring clean. First thing I noticed was that my feet didn't stick to the floor.. vinegar is the secret according to the most welcoming Spanish Manageress :) We had a couple of beers and then ordered food. Both of us had generous portions, the...

My wife and I made a very pleasant return visit to The Cathedral Hotel last week and found that both the bar and restaurant areas had been revamped. And what a great transformation!

This hotel is situated in an old building but has a modern sports bar cum nightclub as well as the hotel. Would have been 4 stars except the charge for a single room is only £5 cheaper than a double room which is not even the cost of the included breakfast. The single room has a small bed which moves...

The hotel is an older building with a lot of charm. My room was large and very comfortable. There was tea/coffee making service in the room, complete with ginger biscuits. My private bathroom was huge. The included breakfast has multiple options; order anything off the menu cooked to order and/or have toast, pastries, cold cereal, yogurt. The building looks recently...

We are just 20 minutes' drive from Stonehenge and the rolling countryside of Wiltshire, with all its historical gardens, houses and walkways.Sundays and throughout the week, we offer a quiet, relaxed environment.
