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

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.
