We have stayed at The Swan Hotel in Wells on three separate occasions while visiting England with our children. The first time we had no idea what to expect, and we were so impressed with the concern, care and kindness shown by Mark, the manager, and his staff. Each time we have visited, we have experienced the same high standards, not only with the care and attention shown to us personally, but with the cleanliness of our rooms, the wonderful meals in the dining room, and any other needs we might have. Not only is the hotel a warm, inviting place to stay, but the surrounding area is full of interesting places to visit, as well as an excellent place to go for long, relaxing walks. The Cathedral right across the green is a fantastic place to spend a long afternoon, or even two or three.
