    Staff were great food was really good we also had dinner here the building is indeed ancient but interesting & amazing location with a cathedral square view the newly refurbished bathroom was very nice lots of hot water

    No parking but not a problem this 800 year old building quite naturally did not cater for cars!

    Centre of the city so ideal for walking around Wells.

    Shower room was tiny and the shower didn’t work. I had to help the staff member find the circuit breaker so we could have a shower. The shower gel provided had already been opened and used. The staff member helped to sort these issues.

    The location is amazing in the heart of Wells overlooking the west face of the cathedral. Dinner in the restaurant (“Rugantino’s”) was excellent, as was breakfast.

    There is no parking as the hotel is in the centre of an ancient town. However the hotel provided a number of nearby suggestions. The hotel fixtures and fittings are in need of updating, but it’s cosmetic only.

    Everything was fine.

    Bathroom: old building but hand held shower head was a bit awkward. It would have been nice to have a shelf/small stool to put bathroom toiletries on.
