“A superb central location on Steep Hill, a stone's throw from the Cathedral. A lovely conversion of a Baptist church hall. Each room has a sumptuous feel with fresh linen and cosy throws. The roof top rooms located on the first floor have access to a private terrace with seating and views to the Bishops Palace and over the city. Although there is no restaurant, the coffee house lounge on the ground floor provides an excellent breakfast and a choice of drinks and tempting snacks are available at other times of the day.”
