My husband and I found the Ancient Gate quite by accident while touring SW England. Our room (#7, I think) was very quaint, small (but we didn't care), up a little, narrow staircase, and had a fantastic view of Wells Cathedral and green. We were happy that it was February and there were no leaves on the trees to block our view! Parking was not a problem for us as we stayed a Sunday and Monday night in February and the management let us park in their sister hotel across the street. We were a little late for breakfast one morning and we did get a little scolding from the server, but were able to get breakfast. The Italian restaurant was good and made a fantastic pasta olio/aglio.
