Firstly, a positive. The rooms were very nice... but that is it. The big issue here people is that whilst the Bishop's Table purports to being a refurbished hotel, it doesn't tell you that the actual hotel is currently closed for refurbishment. The website states, in one place, that the renovations will be completed in 2017 but it doesn't say...

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. All your comments have been shared and discussed with the team (as we do with all reviews). We take service very seriously here, as you will see from the overwhelming number of positive reviews, but we do understand that every once in a while we may underwhelm a guest...

We spent two nights at the Bishop's Table while attending a wedding nearby. The original hotel is being completely rebuilt to include a restaurant and living/gathering rooms. Behind the main building are three brand new buildings designed to compliment the original. Rooms are a good size; king beds, nice bathrooms, good heating and air-conditioning. We were offered a continental breakfast...

Thank you for your positive and objective comments. We are now getting near to the end of the refurbishment project and the extra rooms and public areas will be opening in February.

This hotel is wonderfully positioned for the castle. The rooms are very modern and extremely comfortable, but what was more impressive was the service.

Was extremely nervous about staying in a hotel by myself for 4 days a few hours away from home and was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming of the staff and how gorgeous my room was.

I work in a local business and when I need to stay away I always stay at the Bishops Table. I also frequently send my cover staff to stay here as it is very central.The hotel is comfortable, clean, very accommodating and is run by very friendly/professional staff. I would recommend this hotel for any type of stay.

The hotel is centrally located, which is excellent for evening meals and access to the shops. Rooms are a little dated but very large. Good breakfast, especially like the porridge. It is undergoing renovation and if done well this could be a great place.
