  • Really interesting. About 15 minutes walk from city. Lots of information about the reformation and they had story boards and videos. They have spent a lot of money and I hope it gets the visitors.  more »

  • Basic rooms but very clean and comfortable, tea and coffee available in the room, there are limited ensuite bedrooms so some rooms share a bathroom, just check before you complete your booking. Full English breakfast available as well as continental. There is a tour of the convent and the hidden chapel which is worth going on and there is a discount on the entry fee if you are a guest in the b&b.
  • Elegant atmospheric building close to city centre. Very comfortable room. great hot water and WiFi. Excellent cafe and breakfast. Beautiful Catholic chapel, museum and gift shop. Very friendly staff. Strongly recommend.
  • Can't fault it, except the bed wasn't very comfortable so had to dock a star for that (a good nights sleep is the main thing I want from a b&b). Full English breakfast is awesome, best I've had and there were plenty of other options. Staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful.
  • Clean and quiet confy. Great position. The room was too hot, even after turning off heater. Good value for money.
  • Excellent, will go to launch there in preference to many other places. The museum is worth a visit and the chapel is very relaxing. Yes, very good.
