The Ancient Gate House Hotel is probably one of the oldest and most interesting hotels in England. Its situation is unique - being on the Cathedral Green - facing its beautiful West Front.

The atmosphere of the hotel is unrivalled... A spiral stone staircase, trodden down by centuries of feet; quaint little passages; nine bedrooms - all ensuite, including two four-poster beds and two half-testers (and the modern comfort of interior sprung mattresses). Wherever possible, when adapting the property, its original character has been retained. The Great West Gate which forms part of the property (now called Browne's gate) is designated an Ancient Monument. Its history can be traced back to the feudal barons and still preserved with the Cathedral records are details of its rebuilding in 1473. During the reign of Edward VI (1547 - 1553) it was an armed keep and after a period of confiscation it was handed back to the Church by Mary Tudor (1553 - 1558).Arrivals later than 10 p.m. please ring Reception
