4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The newly refurbished bedrooms & bathrooms are very nicely done. The bed was extremely comfortable (its surprising how often this isn't the case). Doggie treats with a bed and bowls are provided for the £10 per night doggie fee. The Globe is situated on a pretty green towards the back of Wells. Although it doesn't have its own parking, there...

As Bernard Matthews used to say. But this hotel is no turkey! We have just spent a very enjoyable three nights there and would happily have stayed longer. The refurbishments to the main building are still ongoing but are due to finish by Easter. They in no away detracted from our enjoyment of our stay. Our room was comfortable and... More

Just had lunch at the globe the staff are excellent .but would not let us run up a tab because we sat outside. the lunch was mean and expensive .and not particularly well cooked we will not return. Why do I have to use 200 characters to write this review as I have said all I wish to say

What a shame you found your Sunday lunch so disappointing. These kinds of comments are extremely unusual as you can see by other reviews so I am perplexed as to what went wrong for this couple. We are trying to address the 'no tab for outside' issue - it arose as we had a few incidents of people walking off... More

Pleased to endorse the many glowing reviews of this newly refurbished pub with rooms on the Buttlands in Wells next the sea. The work is still ongoing, the new owners having ambitious plans, but the alterations are unobtrusive and mostly apply to old outhouses which are being modernised and upgraded. The service is particularly friendly we found, and the newly... More

Went in last Monday for an evening meal. The staff were very helpful and polite and their timing was very good throughout the evening with there service, it was never too slow nor did we feel hurried. All of the food we chose from an excellent menu was piping hot, it was all very flavoursome and worth every penny. Deserts... More

In the past, we've stayed at other hotels in the area, but from now on we'll be booking at The Globe. Everything about it was far above its rivals - the food, the service and the attention to detail were all exceptional. We arrived frazzled, having had our car smashed into on the journey up. Staff immediately and kindly provided... More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the full 'Globe Experience'. It was Matt and Yeray who looked after you when you arrived, offering that 'stronger' option after your horrible journey. I am delighted that you liked the smaller details like the upward blinds and the fresh milk, we know these things make a difference to our guests, so thanks... More

We last stayed at The Globe about three years ago when it was part of the Adnams group. It was then excellent then so we were slightly apprehensive about our visit last week. From the moment we arrived (a very friendly welcome) to when we left the next day it was extremely pleasant. The rooms have been recently re-decorated, and... More
