Went to the Crown whilst staying in Wells. My wife and I took our two young boys aged 7 and 10. The staff are very helpful and welcoming and the service is excellent. Our food was very good and enjoyed by us all. My only comment would be that I was served far to many fries with my stark which... More

I visited with three other guests on the busy Easter Sunday. We came in late but were served beautifully prepared and delicious dishes. They were so copious that we skipped the tempting desserts. If you park in front of the restaurant you have to renew the parking ticket every hour. A bit of a pain in the neck.

Anton's Bistro is set within the Crown at Wells. They have a fantastic deal on at certain times throughout the week offering two courses for £10. We assumed it would be a standard light lunch. Two of our party of three are vegetarian so we ordered the veggie quiche which was described on the menu as quiche with a side... More

We were so impressed with our visit to Wells for the day the we will return in the future and hopefully stay at the Crown as you cannot ask for a... More

Excellent breakfast, friendly staff. The 4 poster rooms are expensive for what you get. Market morning they set up early but we didn't have an issue with it. We expected a lot of noise the way the Manager warned us about it but we slept pretty much through it. Could do with some new pillows too, quite hard, although the... More

The stay was very pleasant as the location is fantastic. The hotel itself is OK but really could do with a bit of a spruce up. The room was clean and the chambermaid service impeccable to say the least. The food in the restaurant was excellent as were the breakfasts. Shame they were fully booked on the second night. The...

Thank you for your review. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and found the food to be excellent, so much so, we were fully booked on one of the nights you were here. We must point out we are an inn, not an hotel, and market ourselves accordingly. Sorry you found The Crown " a bit... More

Stayed here two nights and would come back. Great location right in the heart of this lovely little city, even has private parking for residents! We ate in Anton's Bistrot both nights - having had such a great meal the first night and finding nothing else that really appealed nearby we went back there for the second night. This hotel... More

This place has history written through it and I love it. I have stayed here many times. Creaky floor boards, uneven floors, the lot. So much better than those sterile chains.The customer care is very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent both at breakfast and in the Restaurant (also in the bar) and the beer superb. Of course Hot... More

Recently had a long weekend in the great little city of Wells, Somerset. We visited the Crown and Antons Bistrot twice, one lunch time and one evening and each time had a great relaxing time with great service and food. Friday is even better because the weekly market sits outside the hotel which adds even more atmosphere, a must visit
