Lonely Planet review
This 16th-century former bishop’s palace makes a wonderful place to stay, particularly if you upgrade to one of the superior rooms, which have views, space, malt whisky and chocolates on the welcome tray and, in some cases, four-poster bed; the deluxe rooms are unforgettable. Cheaper rooms (s/d £50/65) are also available in adjoining buildings.
