Comfortable, buzzing and packed with character, this historic city centre hotel has been totally renovated in bright and bold colours, art and artifacts, and is an absolute delight. Housed in a handsome building and with 83 ensuite rooms, The Green Dragon Hotel is a couple of minutes' walk from Hereford cathedral shops, bars and restaurants. One of the oldest hotels in Britain, it dates back more than 900 years. Today, the Hereford restaurant serves delicious dinners that champion local, independent food and drink producers. Head for the stylish Garrick Lounge for a scrumptious afternoon tea, the Offa Bar for cocktails, or cosy Orange Bar for a nightcap. There's also a Ballroom.

At the nearby Hereford Cathedral is the Mappa Mundi. Made around 1300, it is a fascinating map of the world on vellum as envisaged in medieval England.

We love the delicious locally made biccies in the room to go with your early morning cuppa. The spacious, decadent Cathedral Suite with a super king size bed, private sitting room and views of Hereford Cathedral is our favourite.
