3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 1 night in September and whilst the hotel was very lively I'm afraid the hotel felt very tired. The carpet in the room did not look in very good condition and the general level of decoration was poor. The location is excellent but an update is overdue. The breakfast was also poor

We stayed at The Crown at Wells for two nights earlier this month whilst en route to North Devon. It was our first visit and, unfortunately, by the time we arrived we were both in a bit of a panic as my husband was very unwell during the journey. Amazingly, Janine and her colleague from the hotel (both first-aiders) immediately... More

The ploughman' lunch is one of the best I have had. It had excellent cheddar cheese, very tasty ham, chicken liver pate,scotch egg, pickled onions ( a bit too salty) good tossed salad, sourdough bread and chutney. It was a very generous serve for 10 pounds. The pub is very close to the entrance to Wells cathedral so I was... More

Nice atmosphere, no waiter service, meals have to be ordered at the bar. Staff are very good and the food was very nice. Large selection of beers, wine and ciders. We sat inside but there is a courtyard outside for alfresco eating. .The menu is varied and plenty to chose from. The charcutarie board was a very good assortment of... More

I was blown away with what a beautiful city Wells is. The Crown is in a fantastic location right near the Cathedral (which is a must see) and the Saturday market is great and right on the hotels doorstep. Staff were incredibly welcoming throughout our stay. Only downside is the room's furniture and decore is rather old and tired.

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and loved Wells. We're sorry you found the room's furniture and decor "rather old and tired". We do furnish The Crown in-keeping with the building's 15th century character and are to have a zhuzh up in the not too distant future. More

We visited the Crown for lunch after visiting the Cathedral in Wells and were very disappointed at the standard of the food. We ordered a medium rare steak and a well done one arrived. We spoke to the barman (from whom we ordered the food) and he very reluctantly agreed to change it after I refused to accept it. I... More

We stayed for one night and it was lovely. The room was very spacious, clean comfortable. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Wells is a lovely place to visit and I would definitely recommend staying at The Crown Inn.

Went on a business trip to nearby Shepton mallet. The first night we all drove over to Wells and found the restaurant in the city centre. the atmosphere and food, especially the rump burger, was gorgeous. 5 drinks and burgers for £80 which was reasonable. Great staff service, who were attentive to the customers needs and constantly topping up the... More

stayed on business, after experiencing some disasters in Somerset this was a welcoming change. I had room 11 and experienced noise from the residents in room 12 including their bathroom however earplugs are provided and what do you expect from a building of this character. I ate in the restaurant, the steak was tasty and the cheeseboard an absolute delight,... More
