My wife and I were staying in Wells (where i went to boarding school some years back) for one night to meet some old school friends. We choose the Ancient Gatehouse due to its convenient location directly on the cathedral green and because we got a decent rate via [-]compared to the other hotels in town.
Our room was small but clean and comfortable and it did have a direct view of the cathedral from both windows! The whole hotel is very cute and quite romantic but not very spacious...
We also really enjoyed the english breakfast (which was served across the road in the sister hotel as the hotel's own restaurant did not open in the morning as we were there somewhat out of season).
Parking was not an issue, as we found a spot in the little lane right next to the cathedral green (this may be more of an issue in the summer or for longer stays!).
Overall good value for money and we would definetely stay there again!
