We stayed here overnight, for a last-minute break. Checking in was good, there were plenty of parking spaces and our room was lovely. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was fab. The staff were very attentive; service was good. We had one little niggle.....as is often the case on a Sunday morning, everyone seemed to arrive at once for... More

This hotel has been much improved since our last visit. The receptionist was extremely efficient, and on agreeing to have Best Western membership, we were upgraded and given what must have been the best room in the hotel (Room 41 with a wonderful view of the Cathedral). The décor was modern, the room spotlessly clean and spacious enough. A minor... More

Attended a Wedding here recently, which was very well organised, executed extremely well so no complaints here and I'm sure was enjoyed by all who came. The room was comfortable and cosy in an 'olde worlds' sort of way with comfortable beds. Problems arose when checking out. Too complicated to tell here, but visitors should make sure they are paying... More

We booked the Swan for our wedding ceremony and reception. The service we had from all the staff was first class. Michelle ran it with precision and nothing was to much trouble. All our guests were very impressed and we only had good comments. Also the setting overlooking Wells Cathedral gave us some lovely photographs.

Been shopping in Bath and we were both very tired and on way back home stopped in Wells on the off chance. Offered lovely room with four poster and even had perfect car parking space. Lovely evening in local pubs, excellent breakfast. Wish we had stayed longer. Will definitely be back.

Friendly hotel overlooking Wells Cathedral, great breakfast, comfortable modernised spacious room, large bathroom with tub and good shower pressure. Conveniently placed in city, but quiet. The hotel has an on onboard restaurant we didn't try (but the kitchen did a good breakfast), and is surrounded by several restaurants and cafes.

The hotel is in a central location and clean and well presented but the room (which was a premium priced room because it had a cathedral view) was somewhat tired in terms of decor with stained furniture where cups/glasses had been placed and the bed was really uncomfortable. At the price being charged they really need to invest in some... More

Had a great return visit to this lovely hotel. Room was excellent. Breakfast was superb and the waiters were lovely. All the staff were very friendly. Cannot fault it at all. Lovely outlook over to the cathedral.

We stayed for a treat one Friday as we live fairly close by but had never been in. We had a suite with a partial view of the cathedral which I thought was good value at £159 b & b. The whole hotel had a well kept air and had clearly been recently decorated. The room was spacious & immaculate.... More

Stayed two nights on a special half board deal in a room with four poster bed at the back of the hotel. Everything from reception, professional, friendly and helpful staff lived up to expectation. Congratulations to the chef on the excellent cuisine and choice at dinner and breakfast. We were even given extra pillows on request (6 in total!). Nothing... More
