My friends and I really love the bar at Falstaff. We haven't stayed the night at the hotel because we are locals but tried the bar. We visited on a Saturday, it was full of people. Mostly young would say they were between 25 and 40, well dressed and respectable. It wasn't too loud, we could still hear each other...

An excellent hotel in all aspects. Shame like a lot of hotel's we booked in to find ourselves put in the annexe rather than the actual hotel although the room we had was excellent. The breakfast was exceptionally good, a choice of cereals toast or a full cooked English breakfast. Parking was at a premium, not a huge area but...

Really enjoyed the afternon tea. Service was a little lax. Heard a waiter saying to ask for a re fill if needed to another table but we were not offered this. Had to go to bar to ask for the bill as couldn't catch the eye of waiter. Very quiet as they were not busy but really enjoyed our afternoon...

Trust the Falstaff. Know we'll be welcome. Just a small room this time but space in the lounge in entertain guests. Looking forward to another visit. Good value, welcome, atmosphere, location, great wine list (ask the manager) reasons for return!

We stayed for one night. The location is perfect, you won't need to use your car to see the cathedral and surrounding shops and restaurants. The hotel car park is small, if it's full, and you can't park there, you're in trouble. The public areas of the hotel are modern and comfortable, we found the reception staff helpful and friendly....

Called and spoke to the very unhelpful receptionist prior to arrival, asking what the afternoon tea consisted of and was informed that it depended on how much you spend. She would offer no further assistance. We arrived and was left standing by a very unorganised staff for around 10 minutes before the seated us, despite booking. Once seated, it took...

Wonderful afternoon tea with friends. Scones were huge and really tasty. The waitors were attentive and happy to help. Really lovely setting and food. Would definitely recommend this place and would go again.

At face value, The Falstaff appeared great. Good location, easy parking, professional staff, courteous treatment, cool public areas; a good place to hang out. We arrived early, felt welcomed and hung around to be unexpectedly upgraded to a sweet four poster room at the front which looked terrific. Very kind. The good news stopped there. We tried to log on...

The hotel offers a cooked to order full English breakfast as well as self service buffet option. The bar offers a range of wines and variety of exclusive cocktails.
