Just spent the weekend in Wells and a group of eight of us stayed at Arch House. The location is fine as it is easy to find sitting alongside the road into the town but just a short stroll away from the shops, pubs and restaurants. We found our first floor room to be on the small side, perfectly adequate... More

We used this as a base for visiting UEA. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great breakfast with cereals, juice and wonderful full English too - vegetarian and gluten free options available. Even though we arrived late we got a warm welcome and help finding our way around. Wells is not a big place and everything is walkable from here.

We have stayed at many B&B's around the country and this is up there with the best. Friendly welcome, great food and a wonderful setting. Very central for everywhere you'd want to visit. Garden room was well presented, very comfortable and the decked patio was an added bonus. There was ample parking for every room. It is in easy walking... More

We stayed here recently for 2 nights and found the trip very pleasant. The B&B is located in an excellent location within easy reach of pubs, shops and the quayside. The check in process was quick and efficient, the B&B very clean and nicely decorated. There is ample off-road parking with more than enough space for each room with a... More

We have stayed at Arch House many times, Kate has always been very welcoming and Monday was no different! We stayed in a garden room which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, the patio area is a real sun trap with tables and chairs outside each room. The breakfast room is lovely with chunky wood furniture, the breakfast itself was... More

I had high hopes for the Arch House, having read some of the better reviews, but I was sadly disappointed with the accommodation. On a positive note, the location was good and breakfast was great. The problem was a number of niggles with the room, which was in the older part of the building and at the front of the... More

The location is great as walking distance to wells. Lovely little garden. Sun trap. The breakfast was ok. The egg and bacon muffins are the best. We stayed in a garden room. Number 10. The only complaint is the bed is not comfortable. Needs a new mattress I think. Would stay again though. Just ask not to be in room... More

Very pleasant guest house with good parking and very friendly. The room was nicely equipped and had a small en-suite shower. The breakfast was very joy able and all at a reasonable cost for a bank holiday. We would stay there again.

Visited over Easter. Nice room, very clean with views over fields. Breakfast is ordered night before - nice ,bright breakfast room and brekkie itself was great. Good private parking. Very peaceful. Only minor gripe was the noisy sani-flo system on the toilet which seemed to go off at random times. Would definitely recommend .

We stayed at the Arch House while we were working at Burnham Horse Trials. Kate's father greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities and a TV. We had very early starts so Kate's father made sure suitable breakfasts were left for us which was very kind... More
