Bed was comfortable. Inn is attractive & brilliantly located.
Dirty toilet Noisy pump in adjacent room. Slow breakfast & gruff service.
We liked the location. Being able to park centrally free and walk everywhere to enjoy the sights was the attraction. The breakfast was excellent and the evening meal we had in Anton's Bistrot was delicious. The staff were very friendly and made our stay a happy one and we would have liked to stay longer. We will return one day.
The staff made us feel very welcome, clean room with a most amazing breakfast.( lots of hot coffee and toast as well.) We enjoyed an excellent early evening dinner on the special offer. Very hot, and fresh ingredients were used which were extremely well cooked.Overall we loved our stay.
We did not like the evening front dining room. Lights far TOO bright made an awful canteen feel to the room, which desperately need a re paint. Shabby chick paint of the tongue and groove wood would really help. No fresh flowers anywhere. Instead of a tired dusty gerbera in a vase, one stem of fresh alstromeria would look better. ( Florist stall on the market is right outside twice a week).Small things, not too much cost or effort.Needs a little bit of tender loving care to cheer this great Hotel up a little.Bit of a shame.
Staff. Hotel position. Good sized room. Good food at reasonable prices. Real ale choice. Car parking on site.
Struggled to find anywhere local to watch a Sky football match! But, watched MOD later so no real problem.
location and friendliness of staff
Beautiful building, location superb. Lovely meal in Antons bistrot Excellent breakfast, one of the best I've had.
No wifi in the room, only in public area Car park tricky Woken up at 6am due to activity in market place, very noisy.
Brilliant, a bit pricey but worth it. Food was great, would definitely return.
Nothing to not like
Chilled atmosphere,good beverages,excellent food,friendly staff.
wide room clean and comfort bed excellent location
Position character ,parking tricky,best to park offsite.
Everything!Lovely 15 th century Inn with lovely old stairs and creaky floors!Wonderful Location very Central!We were at the back on the top floor,Very Quiet slept like a log!!Cant wait to visit again!!Lovely Big Breakfast!Caterd for Vegies well!!You Must Visit!!XX
very close to cathedral, tourist attractions, quaint old pub with lots of character, well cooked breakfast. Cathedral bells could be heard but I liked that. Wells is a waking town so it was lovely to be in the centre.
very noisy since stayed on Friday and Saturday (and Saturday was market day with stalls being set up from about 5am). However complementary ear plus were provided!. Unable to get into car park when returned at 11pm on Saturday so had to find alternative parking.
The location of this hotel is excellent and the staff very friendly and flexible.
There is a fair amount of early morning outside noise. The hotel could do with more space allocated to "residents lounge" for relaxing and reading the papers.
Location and setting was fantastic. Lovely atmosphere in the public areas. We could have easily and wanted to stay longer. Comfortable rooms with complementary hot drink making facilities and bottled water (we didn't have the water because the bottles are refilled and the neck of the bottle under the cap was a bit YUK). Staff were helpful and friendly.
Shower pressure wasn't great more of a trickle. The local beef burger served in the bar was disappointing and tasteless. We eat meat from our award winning local butcher (britains best butcher shop 2012) so know good burgers!!
I stayed with me girlfriend and we both had a brilliant holiday everything was there and we may stay again in the future
Location and traditional pub/inn atmosphere.
Smokers under window; furniture amount and placement made room overly crowded.
Loved the whole ambience and history and Hot Fuzz involvement
Thought the bed was a bit small was it a double?
Staff very good, quality of food very good.
Room decor very tired, a little dowdy.
Great place, location, staff, food, value for money. Pets allowed and catered for. One of the better places I've stayed in.
The promised wifi was non-existent. A small niggle in the scheme of things but if it's advertised it should really be addressed.
The Crown is a lovely hotel right in the centre of Wells. It oozes history, charm and character and our bedroom with four poster bed provided perfect accommodation. To top it all we had a delicious breakfast that was beautifully cooked. Thoroughly recommended.
Great location. Excellent breakfast though service was slow. Though tiny, my single room was very clean and well equipped with everything one might need, even a fan and earplugs-not required on a Monday night. Furnishings and linens were well chosen to fit the old world atmosphere. I will return but book a double next time.
Staff seemed distracted by other concerns.My room had only a tiny window and was dark. The impressive single fourposter bed was uncomfortable and had a high wooden side panel to climb over .The shower room was so small you could not shut the door whilst using the loo. Creaky floorboards inhibited me moving in the room. Just changing weight produced great creaks. Wifi did not reach to my room. Lots of charm but not very comfortable.
Breakfast was great, as was the penn bar. Staff very friendly. Earplugs are provided in room as noise from bar and market could annoy some.. But really it's part of the charm...an inn from 1450...of course it would have had noisey back then as well. Great location as well.
Well the noise maybe.. But don't let it put you off..
Brilliant location right next to The Abbey and the en-suite was excellent with a good shower and good shower products to wash with. Ate there in the evening and the food was a generous portion and okay. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The bed was hard and the duvet and pillows we're uncomfortable, so I had a bad night's sleep unfortunately. Such a shame as the place is full of character and could do better, although I understand why they have to use awful polyester filled pillows and duvets.
Unbeatable location, atmosphere and friendly staff.
Can be some noise from market setting up on a Wednesday but this goes with the location.
location of hotel, although a bit difficult to find with one way streets in Wells.The history of the inn & olde worlde feel.
