“B&B that cannot be faulted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011

Wells is a beautiful city and Ashford House is the perfect place to stay. We received a very warm welcome from Jayne and good pointers as to what Wells had to offer. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and offered every comfort.

We stayed in Ashford House for a friends wedding recently and have got to recommend this B&B to anyone who stays in Wells. I don't normally write reviews, but I feel that the service, the welcome and the hospitality that you receive from Jayne is second to none. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of it and was the best we have had in many a B&B (I used to stay away in B&Bs all of the time with work).

Jayne is definately focused on making sure that your stay is as good as it can be and was working hard to achieve this.

If we go back to Wells (and it is very likely) there is only one place that we will stay....

My mother and I stayed at Ashford House for three nights in May 2011, using Wells as a base for exploring Somerset and Avon. We could not have stayed at a nicer place. Jayne is an outstanding hostess, going above and beyond to ensure our comfort. She brought us fresh milk for our tea upon our arrival; she was very helpful in giving directions, advising us on car parks and such, and helping us get on our way for our day trips; she even hung up our handwashing to dry on her line (without our asking) and then ironed it for us! She prepares a delicious hot English breakfast to your order and provides lots of fresh fruit as well.

We stayed in the family room, with one double bed and one twin bed. The room was spacious and extremely clean and comfortable. Both beds were exceptionally comfortable, and my mom and I both slept well all the nights here. The en-suite bathroom was large, clean, and modern.

I highly recommend Ashford House.

A fantastic Bed and Breakfast providing clean, well appointed rooms and a great breakfast. The proprietor, Jayne Wood, could not have been more helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

We can definitely recommend Ashford House. The Family room is large and well laid out, even with a 4th bed in it. We all slept very well in the comfortable beds. Decor throughout is excellent and everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are substantial and right on the mark, cooked fresh to your requirements, with plenty of toast, tea etc. There is ample free off road parking and the house is only a short walk into town.

Jayne and Frank were very helpful with suggestions of places to eat and park in town, plus a great scenic driving route to Cheddar Gorge. Every thing was comfortable and the boys hot chocolate and biscuit needs were well supplied!

We felt very welcome and were sad to leave.
