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

I am a bit late in posting this but we stayed for four nights with Liz and Dennis at The Merchants House the week after Easter. We booked the four poster room and loved it. The bed linen and duvet was so cosy and the room really felt like home. Our bathroom was along the landing but as the other... More

We had a lovely break in Wells, thanks to the wonderful accommodation provided by Liz and Dennis. Everything was perfect from the beautifully furnished room, and ensuite, to the breakfast which was cooked exactly the way we requested. Both Liz and Dennis were warm and friendly, such that we felt like old friends by the time we checked out. They... More

A perfect B&B with lovely friendly owners, Liz and Dennis. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. This is certainly a very upmarket bed and breakfast. The breakfast was first class and all laid out in a lovely dining room where you could watch the world go by. Its a shame we weren't staying longer. We will definitely go... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at the Merchant's House. This is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in. The rooms and beds are extremely comfortable. Liz and Dennis are very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home in their home. The breakfast each morning was very good and set... More
