Situated in England's smallest cathedral city, The Swan provides excellent accommodation and hotel facilities. The Swan makes an ideal base for exploring Somerset.

great location.excellent breakfast good atmosphere in bar
heating inadequate,bathroom tiny
Location was amazing, right next to the Cathedral. Parking was ok there is a small car park at the back of the hotel, The bar had a lovely feeling and the food from the restaurant was exceptional!!! In fact the Breakfast was one of the best I've had as well
Nothing really, had to be critical of such a lovely hotel in a great spot. If pushed id probably suggest that the bathroom suites could be brought up to date a bit and maybe some of the décor but it wouldn't influence me stopping there again which I fully intend too
Everything! From the location to the very warm welcome from the staff, to the delicious food & cosy room. Highly recommend this beautiful hotel.
Location, atmosphere of the building. Pet friendliness.
Tiny bathroom. Unclean bathroom. Overall tiredness of the building. Sand/grit in the bed.
lack of heating lack of comfort (comfortable lounge would have been nice) no change in menu(after a couple of days became boring)
Unspoilt - no attempt made to misguidely modernise.
Car parking a bit limited.
Friendly staff, good food, comfortable and in the centre near the Abbey
It was right in the heart of the city so did not need to drive anywhere for a meal etc. Anton's restaurant was excellent as was the bar area - we always got a table. Good facilities in the room.
We had rooms at the front and market started setting up at around 4am. We were provided with ear plugs but they didn't really work.
Very Helpful and attentive staff. Spacious rooms. Able to open window- no double glazing. Very clean. Perfect for exploring city on foot. Good selection and tasty breakfast. Would stay again.
Very small shower ensuite. Shower door hit toilet when open. Rather noisy from about 5am-traders dragging wheelie bins over cobbles, and early deliveries. Used ear plugs provided! But you ARE in the market place which is charming. Lunchtime sandwich in Anton's- very average and overpriced at £5.50
The Hotel was unique in its history and location.
Very friendly staff, and a lovely old inn with lots of character. The evening meals we had were superb and also the choices for breakfast. A lovely place for our family to spend some quality time together.
The Saturday market being set up at 5am was rather noisy, and I think this should be advertised on the web site.
The staff ,the service, the position
The room was a bit tired.
Loved the location.the food ,the staff. Well furnished room.
The bed was a little too bouncy, but we slept !
The main thing about this hotel is that it feels privileged to stay somewhere that is so historic The staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious.
Pub resturant & location.
Verbal abuse from guy delivering goods to Hotel who was blocking the exit...he was only asked how long he would be and hotel staff seemed unperturbed that as a guest I was being treated like this...
Problems dealt with efficiently
Poor customer service in the restaurant
Location excellent - right beside the cathedral, easy access to local places of interest.
The noise of the Wednesday market being set up in the early hours.
Liked the choice of good quality breakfast food.
We did not get room 10 as promised from Booking.com. We were given room 9, which was very small and had a small double-bed and height restricted ceiling. The bathroom (no shower) was also very small with sloping ceiling above which made access hard.The car parking was very difficult as the space was so small.
I chose The Crown for its location and history and I wasn't disappointed. I stayed in a lovely room with beams. Even though The Crown is right next to the market place, my room (no 8), was quiet. Good parking on site.
There is no lift which didn't bother me but less able travellers might find this awkward. I had a view of a stone wall but as I was only staying for one night, I didn't mind. The characterful room and facilities more than made up for the lack of a view.
Comfortable room with everything needed. Good breakfast. Centre of town near cathedral.
Room very small. Bathroom so small had to sit diagonally on toilet! Rather stuffy with only one small window. WiFi terrible, though in bar managed to connect with bank over the road! Lots of noise from creaky floors and neighbours snoring. Bit overpriced.
Noisy - hard to sleep. Bed too soft
Lovely room.... comfy bed... view of the cathederal. Great breakfast, cracking beer....
Everything!36 years since we were last there and we loved every minute!will be back.thank you
Excellent central position and nice large room clean and well maintained. Free wi-fi
Parking difficult from time to time and wi-fi a bit hit and miss probably due to the substantial walls
