No sooner had we arrived in the car park when Dave (porter/conceige) appeared and carried our luggage for us. Staff were cheerful and we were given a large comfortable room. Bed was so comfortable that I had the best 4 nights sleep for a long time. Our friends in a nearby room even had a built in flat screen TV at the end of their bath. We stayed for 4 days under a "package" for DB and B. The meals were taken in the Ivy Brasserie restaurant which was smart but unpretentious. The food however was exceptional, beautifully cooked and attractively presented.The Restaurant Manager made us feel so welcome and looked after us exceedingly well.
The weather during our stay was awful and we returned twice to the hotel on different days rather wet! However we were met with a warm friendly greeting by the proactive staff. The hotel is only a short walk to the Minster and shops etc so we were able to leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere.
My only disappointment in the hotel was the lack of any decent beers in the bar but all things considered I can live with that. Good selection of wines though.
I was impressed with the hotel and staff and these days it takes a lot to impress me. Our friends loved the hotel and really enjoyed the stay. We are now planning a return visit.
