A Night in Wells
This small hotel situated in the heart of the beautiful City of Wells with an intimate view of the beautiful Cathedral was a lucky find for me.
The whole experience proved to be a delight and I can safely say the food was better than most alleged 5 Star hotels. Dinner was well prepared, succulent and served with good grace. The portions were generous, eschewing the unappealing modern trend of offering tiny portions on large white plates - what the experts I believe term: nouvelle cuisine. The characterful bedroom offered a sumptuous four poster bed with deep welcoming pillows. For those who are prepared to overlook the challenge of finding somewhere to park overnight, I have no hesitation in recommending this delightful little hotel. That said, the walk to car park was worth the effort.
A great place with loads of atmosphere. Well-placed for exploring town.
We had a great stay here - though you do need to be fairly fit & not too plump to get to the top rooms.
On-site restaurant looks good though we didn't try it. Parking a bit of a pain but easily sortable. Pleasant staff and a really good bed!
