We had a very pleasant stay at The Merchants House. We had the room pictured, with the four poster. A very spacious bathroom next door. Very convenient location, so near to the Quay, restaurants etc. Everything spotless and tastefully furnished. Breakfast well cooked and presented, with nice added touches such as fruit compote. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed at this lovely B & B in the room with a four poster bed. Everything was very clean and tidy with robes to wear and although the bathroom wasn't ensuite, it was only a few feet away. Good shower/bath/bathroom. A delicious breakfast of locally sourced food, well cooked and served by our hosts Liz and Dennis. Altogether a... More

We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from Dennis and Liz at this spotless and exceptionally well-appointed B&B. The breakfast is the finest we have personally experienced. Dennis has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area which we found most informative. Liz is a delightful lady with a marvellous sense of humour. They simply cannot do enough to make your... More

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

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
