Nothing too bad to write but overall not the...

I come every so often and usually I walk away with a smile. Unfortunately this time I walked away unhappy.

We were there for three nights. There was a bit a kerfuffle on our Sunday arrival due to the road in front of the hotel being closed for road works but once this was sorted out reception was good. The room was spacious with plenty of goodies (biscuits, tea coffee, drinking chocolate) and the en-suite was adequate with an excellent...

The name and the web page suggest the cathedral is visible and less than 5 minute walk. I didn't bother to look for the cathedral from the hotel, as I am sure I could only have seen the tippy-top at most and it's more than 5 minutes (and I walk FAST). My bad I didn't look at a map. My...
