The Merchant’s House Hotel was once known as The Catherine Wheel which was a regular drinking haunt for Cavaliers. One of our rooms, The Nelson Room, is where on the 20th December 1800 Nelson himself stayed after being wined and dined and given the freedom of the city. This historic city has amazing heritage and there is so much to see whilst staying with us at The Merchant’s House Hotel.
Unlike many cathedral cities it’s also mostly flat and easy to explore on foot and The Merchant’s House Hotel is located in the heart of town centre
