The four-star Southgate Hotel was built in 1989 in a mock Georgian Regency Style, and is built onto the remaining walls of a much older listed building. The Southgate Hotel has a superb position. It can be found next to the fabulously preserved city walls, close to the magnificent 12th century Cathedral.
