From the extraordinary setting to the friendly welcome, there wasn't a disappointment to be had. A beautiful room with an incredibly comfy bed - fantastic pillows and a very soft duvet - together with a delicious breakfast and a short walk to the beach. Don't forget to ask for the code for a free drink at The Crown!

Telephoned to book rooms, and helpfully received maps and information by post about the area. Were welcomed very politely by Liz and Dennis - have never met a couple so friendly, enthusiastic, interested and passionate about the area and their guests! My husband and I had the four-poster room which had the most comfortable bed and pillows and lovely bedding,... More

We had a fabulous weekend and were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was amazing. We felt thoroughly spoilt! Stayed in the four poster room and would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

We had the most perfect two nights stay at the Merchants House. As people have commented the room and breakfasts are excellent and the location is just ideal to walk both around Wells and also along the fabulous beach. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. It is though the hosts, Liz and Dennis, that just make this such a wonderful stay. They... More

A great location in an interesting town. Just two rooms available so really good service provided by the owners. Comfortable, clean and well equipped room and bathroom. Nice range of food available for breakfast and at times to suit us. An extra bonus for us was the help with our laundry.

We had a wonderful stay at The Merchants House with a warm welcome, a beautiful room and a fantastic nights sleep. Catering for a vegetarian, the Breakfast was second to none too. Liz and Denis were the perfect hosts. We Would certainly stay again!

The Merchant's House in Wells-next-the-Sea is a real find. Elegant but comfortable, spotlessly clean, with delicious breakfasts and wonderful hosts. Liz and Dennis could not have been more helpful, warm and friendly. As another reviewer mentioned, they felt like old friends, and I only stayed there one night! Nice touches were posh biscuits and a cafetiere in the bedroom, and... More
