I stayed here with my husband on our 12th July for our anniversary weekend. We stayed in room 3. Check in was quick and easy and all staff seemed polite and helpful. Our room was very spacious and full of charm, the bed was so comfy. We overlooked the market square and didnt find any problem with the noise and... More

This was our first visit to Wells, what a lovely city, the market it well worth a look round. We stayed 3 nights from 1st July. Our room was lovely, nice touches like chocolates on arrival and bottled water as well as the usual tea and coffee. Loved the teddy on the bed and rubber duck in the bathroom. We... More

We have had a number of meals at the Crown and always found the staff polite and efficient. The food was excellent and complimented by a great wine list. We ended up in the bar and were surprised by the great range of gins on offer. Will certainly be back there again!

We were not staying at the hotel but enjoyed the early bird menu here 2 days in a row in the restaurant. It was an excellent find and the meals perfect. I guess the fantastic friendly people we found during our stay are enjoying their wonderful city! The staff were attentive and efficient. We loved the table water bottles so... More

The Crown is situated in the perfect location to see Wells. Smack bang in the middle of the market. (We parked in the hotel's spaces - the following morning was market day which meant we had to drive through the market... that was a bit odd!) Fans of Hot Fuzz will get a buzz from standing in the footsteps of... More

Just back from an amazing weekend in Wells meeting up with some great friends, all of us staying at The Crown. The hotel was comfortable, the rooms had some lovely touches, complimentary tea and coffee, biscuits and chocolates, bottled water. Each room had it's own character and I can particularly recommend room 7. There is some noise as the market... More

I stayed in The Crown for a night whilst away on business. I was greeted at reception, and immediately was upgraded to a family room with four-poster. The room itself was nice, clean and a good size. Everything that I needed was there, and the free WiFi is a definite plus whilst on business. The bar had a good range... More

We spent a few weeks road tripping through the UK and Wells was a 3 night stay. I chose The Crown for its charm and location. Upon checking in, we were told that as it was Saturday the next day, the market set up will be early and noisy, so as we were informed, earplugs and expectations were at the... More

The Crown is a very old hotel with creaky floors and no lifts. The rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. We were initially worried that we would find it hard to sleep as our room was directly above the marketplace but fortunately Wells is very quiet at night. We found the service extremely friendly and enjoyed... More

If you are looking for place to eat in Wells then look no further than the crown, I cannot rate it highly enough. From the quirky charm to the deliciously cooked locally produced food I have eaten here so many times and not once had a bad meal. I recently got married and the Crown catered for my wedding breakfast... More
