My partner and I stayed in the four poster room for 2 nights on a 6 day coastal tour of East Anglia. We were delighted not only with the warm and loving service by our hosts Dennis and Liz, but for their attention to detail in all the rooms. The breakfasts were excellent and we even got a car park... More

Merchants House is more than a luxury B+B because we felt Liz and Dennis were letting us share their gorgeous home in Wells. Nothing was too much trouble and we can't wait to return. So handy for Quay and exploring Wells by foot. Superb breakfasts with home made bread! Faultless.

The bedroom we stayed in was a 4 poster bed and really special with an excellent private bathroom. The breakfast is to die for especially the freshly... More

Wells next the Sea is a charming place and the Merchants House is a delightful place to stay. The room was comfortable with the odd creaky floor board adding charm to the relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast is delicious served in a plush dining room which made us feel like royalty. Our hosts were always on hand to give advice on the... More

Spent two lovely days staying at "The Merchants House". The hosts Liz & Dennis were perfect hosts. The Bedroom (with four poster bed) & bathroom were delightful and the breakfast was delicious with fruit, cereals, and a full English. The overall ambience made our little break very enjoyable.

Liz and Dennis are wonderful, warm hosts who made us so welcome into their lovely home for 3 nights. There are only 2 letting rooms - the Blue Room (that we were in) which has an ensuite with spacious shower; and a sumptuous four-poster room with sofa and private bathroom (a couple of yards across the landing). The bed was... More
