    The Location was outstanding and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    No parking, had to park on the street about 5 minutes walk away. Bathroom needs refurbishing and a net curtain to the window would have been nice as our room overlooked an apartment opposite the hotel.

    Good location for cathedral and shopping.

    Very cramped. Bed too big for the room. Bathroom small. Precipitous stairs. No convenient parking, especially for loading and unloading. Over the road for breakfast. Too much noise in the morning

    loved the City and all the attractions

    The price of drinks at the hotels was a bit of a rip off. One glass of wine and one pint of lager £10.

    Location excellent and Wells Cathedral and Bishops garden should not be missed. The view from top for poster room is outstanding. The in house Italian restaurant is first class

    Knowledge of staff regarding Town was questionable. They did not seem to know about parking. The shower in gatehouse room require updating very 1970's. Although we loved the room it would be difficult to negotiate stone spiral staircase if you have dodgy leges - no warning

    Great location.Had room with view of cathedral.Was quiet.Room was clean.Kettle,tea coffee biscuits and small tv in room,also bottled water and glasses.Thick bathrobes provided (but not needed when i went in heatwave).Staff pleasant and not intrusive.

    Might be picky but would have liked instant hot chocolate.Room clean but could do with a lick of paint on walls and maybe fabric softner on linen and towels so that they smell fresh and sweet.

    a hotel full of character, with excellent situation and good food. Really handy for the cathedral. Sat outside and watched the sun go down, illuminating the West front. Magnificent 4 poster room

    We loved the location

    No shower in bathroom and bath tiny! Smell of food all the time. Tiny room. Not the cleanest bathroom! Only one bottle of water in room. No mention of breakfast being in hotel over the road. Basic breakfast.

    Location, bedroom, breakfast (across the road), meals ..... everything. We'd stay there anytime.

    Parking is sometimes a lottery! (but I don't mind).

    Location

    Everything else: No parking available. Had to park 3 blocks away after spending over an hour searching for an overnight parking lot!!! WiFi never worked. With no A/C, the room was really hot. Not recommended if you have a car! You have been forewarned!

    The genuine Olde worlde atmosphere so close to the Cathedral went down really well with my Australian cousin. Good restaurant downstairs or we could have gone across road to sister hotel.

    It's central to Wells.

    Having to go across the road to another hotel for breakfast. No-one at reception in the morning. Peeling paint and wallpaper in the bathroom

    The location was excellent, the food in the restaurant was very good.

    Lack of parking, the only parking available was if you stayed at their sister pub across the road which was full. This needs to be clearer as there was very little parking available in the town unless you paid for it. Even then, parking was still limited.

    Excellent location overlooking the Cathedral green and within the historic centre of Wells, with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Very helpful, caring and friendly staff.

    Very limited parking which has to be booked in advance. The rooms vary a lot in terms of quality and there was a general lack of good maintenance throughout the building.

    Loved the original features, good shower, etc.

    It was a good job my wife and I could manage the stone spiral stairs. The door to the room was medieval size, but a great night over all.
