Stayed here for 1st wedding anniversary and had a lovely room with a great view of the cathedral. Would have been disappointed if I had got a room without this view and don't know if my review would have been the same?
Decor and furnishings were fine but perhaps a little tired and dated. Small bathroom.
Food (we had breakfast and dinner here) was good, well presented etc.
Car park was quite small and full (due to wedding on site) but we were lucky to get a space - bit of a hassle to get in and out though with lots of people fighting for spaces.
The reason we stayed here was the location as it's perfectly located for exploring Wells. In my opinion, slightly overpriced for what it is though but I guess you're paying for the location as much as the hotel itself.
