A swiftly arranged 1 night trip to previously unvisited Wells.....We heard it was an interesting place but were also mildly curious to see where the film 'Hot Fuzz' was shot! Strangely enough not only was the hotel's website showing no vacancies when we tried to book direct but was more expensive than the room booking site we went with who obviously did have vacancies!
Ideally situtated, the hotel is a short walk to the marvelous cathedral and the main square which houses the market on Wednesday. Good choice of pubs and places to eat. The hotel car park is described by some reviewers as an alley...well it is really, narrow and is simply a horseshoe shape around the rear of the hotel. Get the biggest and best parking spot (under the metal stairs) and get there early! Our 1st floor room was above the aforementioned car park at the rear and had the block been on the ground it would have had more than uncanny resemblance to the Bates Motel in physco. The room itself which is reached by a wooden staircase at one end on a metal one at the other had been refurbished (carpet etc) but the bathroom still had signs of wear and mildew on the bath screens. Shampoo etc was supplied which was a nice touch and becoming rarer in hotels. Hard and soft pillows were supplied so full marks for effort, alas the mattress was the same - hard and soft so not the best nights sleep....
We had our evening meal in the adjoining restaurant which was good, both enjoying the homemade burgers. Breakfast was taken in the same room and was freshly cooked and very good. Good value, very helpful and friendly staff, ideal for a quick break not sure for anything longer.
