I recently returned to Chicago from a one-month vacation in the UK where I stayed in several B&Bs, boutique hotels, and other hotel accommodations ranging from closets to 5-star hotels. Merchant's House was exceptional and one of the best B&B experiences I've had. Liz welcomed me with open arms and immediately made me feel like one of the family upon... More

What a treat to stay at this lovely house. We stayed here one night and despite arriving soaked to the skin after walking 10 miles, Lis did not blink an eye. Clothes and muddy boots were sorted and I was shown to the wonderful 4 poster bedroom at the front. Bed was bountiful with lovely bedding and a spacious bathroom... More

Couldn't do better clean,good breakfast, great hosts felt more like visiting friends than holiday hosts and Elizabeth a thank you for the special eggs on the last day. Stayed in four poster room which was excellent access to our private and roomy bathroom literally across the landing. LOL

We stayed for one night in the blue room. Liz and Dennis were very accommodating and allowed us to check in early as we were spending the whole day out at a wedding. They didn't mind what time we came back either! They were very friendly and have the softest dog we've met! Breakfast was delicious and there were plenty... More

Our second stay in this lovely B&B; hosts were very welcoming, bedroom was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious! Only a few minutes from shops and bars in Wells, this is perfect for a weekend break at the seaside!

We spent one night at the Merchants House and it was certainly a comfortable and enjoyable stay. A lovely guest house in a great spot from which to explore the north Norfolk coastline. Liz and Dennis made us feel completely at home. The room was comfortable with a heavenly bed, crisp linen and coffee and tea making facilities. The room... More

Just returned from three nights at Merchant House. One of the best B & B we have stayed in. Liz and Dennis do everything to make sure you have a wonderful stay. The breakfast is excellent, freshly cooked by Liz, nicely presented and served by Dennis who also makes the bread. Dennis relays his excellent knowledge of the area to... More

Stayed here for 2 days over the bank holiday in a very comfortable 4 poster bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was well equipped and traditionally decorated in the style and period of the house. The bathroom, which is for sole use only, is across from the bedroom and has a good qaulity shower and bath for... More

We stayed for two days in March, and felt we were with friends. The four-poster bed, with its crisp white sheets and feather pillows, was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in, breakfast was a treat, and with the house being opposite the Crab Cafe, we ate well! Our short break here just wasn't long enough. Well definitely... More

We spent two nights in the four poster room. When we booked we had the option and were pleased with our choice. The room is slightly larger and probably has better views across the playing fields and marshes to the coastal ridge. The large separate bathroom (10 feet down the hall) with bath and a good sized shower was no... More
