눉mmmm..... hard to say it but.... ok, well.... if you are scared of ghosts you might want to consider not only a different hotel but also a different town :) but ... that's just a personal feeling created by the magical athmosphere (or my own craziness) and not a definite fact ! :)
눇As a keen traveler, i can certainly find the difference between a standard place and an outstanding one... I rarely write any reviews but Cathedral Gate certainly deserves one for the following reasons: First of all the service- warm and personalized welcome, generous breakfast brought on a tray to our room at no extra charge but a genuine smile... Felt totally spoiled... 2. Location- just next to the Cathedral (the main reason for us to visit that magical little town), right in the center of everything, next to all shops, restaurants,the bus and train stations... you go to sleep with an amazing view from your window and wake up with the bells ringing... couldn't be better... 3.Cleanliness- spotless! 4. Original features in our room converted from the old Barn, sadly no donkeys but a powerful modern shower accompanied by honey and magnolia bath foam (sadly no bath but still loved it especially after a whole day of walking in the cold) 5. That extra touch of magic- a charming small living room with sofas and a shelf with old books leading to a terrase with a view of the Cathedral which i am sure in the summer would be lovely... And if you don't fancy going out, you can dine in the elegant restaurant and chic bar (now that sounds like i'm advertising)
