The George Inn, hotel in Wells

Boasting exclusively brewed beer, homemade food and a pub garden, The George Inn is located in Wells. 3.1 mi from Wells Cathedral and 3.7 mi from Wookey Hole Caves, the property features a terrace.

I booked the George Inn at 7pm on a Sunday evening of a BH weekend after getting rained off from my camping. The place was still busy with the Sunday lunch crowd and clearly the host couple had been flat out busy all day. Nevertheless they were both absolutely charming and quickly showed me a lovely comfortable room and got me a meal and a pint followed by some excellent home made Victoria sponge. Before long I was co-opted onto one of the pub quizz teams and had a great evening in front of the toasty open fire with my new friends. Lovely people who run a great little Inn.

    The moated palace of the Bishop of Bath and Wells has a wonderful atmosphere as does the market place although its sad to see so many vacant buildings, even there. I was too late for dinner at the Swan and went for a lovely wander in the dark and discovered a delightful looking bistro that is open until 10pm and which I shall pre-book for my next year when I make my annual vist to the nearby Bath & West Show.

    Fabulous small city. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

    Fabulous small city. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The Conservative club in the market square made us fresh sandwiches to takeaway even though take away wasn't on the menu. The city itself was very clean and well cared for. Independent shops a delight, market has an interesting mix of stalls. Well worth a visit you need more that an overnight visit to see it all. Even though the center is easy to walk around you need a whole day extra to visit the gardens and cathedral.

    'England's smallest city' is worth the detour - and it is a detour. Set in lovely countryside, the unmissable sights are the beautiful Cathedral and historic Bishop's Palace in its wonderful gardens (worth getting a joint ticket for both). A great place for a weekend away, with a buzzing market on Saturday mornings and plenty of thriving independent shops, cafés and restaurants. Root on Sadler Street was especially good - mainly but not exclusively vegetarian and vegan, really inventive and fantastic quality ingredients and friendly service. There are plenty of friendly pubs serving great local beer and cider. Parking around the city centre takes luck or planning or both, but otherwise it's easy to walk everywhere.

    Our trip was specifically to visit the rural levels and also to catch up on a friend in the area. We did not visit Wells on this occasion so can't comment specifically. However if you want to be well situated to explore the area Wookey Hole and its hotel is a good place to be. Locally there is the Ebor Gorge within walking distance and road access to most of the area is accessible although you must be happy driving on some narrow roads. Hotel is definitely not luxury but is clean and convenient with excellent staff. Good value for money if looking for convenience rather than luxury.

    wonderful little city, easy for strolling / exploring. great history. location for fab cult film "Hot Fuzz" - check out the local guided tour. good places to eat. good market. parking is at a premium; not many places you can park up overnight (check out one of the car parks at the bus station - can park there for 24 hours).

    Good place to visit.

    Good place to visit. Cathedral and Bishop's Palace are really lovely. City centre has a lovely vibe and there are lots of shops and restaurants. It's very handy for exploring the rest of the area and only a short drive from Cheddar Gorge.

    I loved the location of the hotel, a rural setting but close enough to Wells City Centre. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful. I loved the breakfast, good value for money lots of choices and very tasty. The hotel is very clean but a bit dated, but good value for money. Great location for wookey hole caves. We went to Wookey hole for the day, initially when paying for tickets I thought it was a bit over priced, but once inside had a fantastic day. Would suggest taking a picnic, as lots to do one inside.

    If you don't know this hotel, then it's difficult to describe what is so special about it. It's called "The Ancient Gatehouse" and we were in the gatehouse itself, built in about 1435. Our room had in all likelihood been continuously occupied since 1435. That puts it up with the earliest Oxford colleges and Royal Palaces and castles. It's quite a thought, all that history. And it's a stones throw from the medieval city centre, the view from the bedroom is of the west end of Wells Cathedral.

    Great location, hotel is in the centre of Wells over looking the market square. Bedroom and bathroom were a good size and clean. Bed was very comfortable. The cathedral and Bishop’s Palace were only a few moments walk away. Hotel breakfast was great plenty of options to chose from. The city is small but has plenty of shops and places to eat. Great for visiting Bath and Glastonbury.

    Very hospitable welcome and caring hosts. This pub is the centre of the village community and a very worthwhile stay location for Wells or Shepton Mallet. If we were to come to visit Wells again we would stay at the George Inn as our preference. Our room (#2) was rather small but we would request a larger one next time. Overall a very happy stay and we would be glad to come back again.

    The location is fantastic right next to the cathedral and part of the surrounding buildings. The hotel feels authentic and fitting for a visit to Wells. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. You can check in quite early which is good (2pm) and yet you don’t have to check out until 11. Both of these aspects suited us. Breakfast was lovely.

    Our room was absolutely beautiful. Comfortable bed, fluffy towels and gorgeous toiletries. What we seen of other parts of the hotel all good. Great breakfast choice and good evening meals. Staff were all helpful, pleasant and hard working. Managed to get a parking space behind the hotel but in their car park. Fantastic view of Wells Cathedral.

    Everything you could think of was provided. It was a beautiful apartment right in the centre of Wells. It was spacious with lots of personal touches which made it very comfortable. My sister and I often stay at The Swan Hotel in Wells but this apartment will now be our first go to when booking further trips to Wells.

    The property is a rare find only 2 miles out of Wells and on the edge of a small village with a few great pubs and farms all around. The working flour mill grinds spelt and whole wheat flour as its done for centuries, that goes into delicious breads served with breakfast.
