We arrived at the Crown hotel, the person on reception was very helpful with the check in, the room was lovely, and very warm even though the radiator was turned off, we dined in the bistro on the first evening of our stay, the food was wonderful and reasonably priced, the staff were excellent. The hotel is in such a...

Booked this accommodation by mistake (thought we were in the Swan!) The shower in the room was, what can only be described as a trickle even though there was what looked like an all singing and dancing shower. For the money we were charged the room and service were not up to scratch. The whole pub is in need of...

A nice old hotel in the centre of this truly beautiful old town. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was terrific. It is dog friendly and my dog got a sausage for breakfast as well. The place feels like it's due a refurbishment as it's slightly threadbare in places, but I'll go again.

We went for lunch in Wells but were really disappointed with the Crown Inn. Cold poor quality food that took too long, meals didnt arrive together and we were not given cultlery. Found staff unwelcoming and had a job to acknowledge us. Would of been nice to of had a "hello" when we approached the bar and to be told...

Lovely old pub in the old part of Wells round the back of the cathedral. It also featured as a film set in "Hot Fuzz" as the local pub. I had a Brie and cranberry baguette which came with chops and salad and my husband had the burger which was huge! Both very tasty and served good beer too.

Had the traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pud Sunday lunch. Nice veg selection and crispy roast potatoes. Good horseradish sauce too. Service OK. Pudding menu a bit disappointing. In November you want a nice steamed pudding and custard, not cold desserts and ice cream - we went without and had cake in another café later on. Photos from the Hot...

Six of us went to Anton's Bistrot on Thursday evening. We ordered our meals and enjoyed good food and service. One of the meals was not quite up to scratch and we reported this to the young man waiting on our table. We were so impressed by the efficient, friendly and pleasant manner with which he dealt with the problem...

Nice room overlooking the market square. Very swish bathroom, comfortable bed room ( the beds were a bit too soft - I rolled of bed one night!) helpful friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Stayed before, would stay again. Fantastic location.

We stayed as a couple with our dog for weekend 21st-23rd October. Booking was made directly to hotel and this and subsequent check in was very smooth and relaxed. We had four poster room at front of hotel overlooking square. There was no problem parking car and keys handed into reception meant we didn't have to worry about any double...

Reviewed 1 November 2016

It was a most uncomfortable stay at four star prices. At well over £100 a night one does not expect cold fried breakfasts with a 35 minute wait. This was caused by the manager allowing lots of non staying guests to take precedence over the few people staying there to wander in for breakfast whilst the small group of us...

No surprise to see your 'review' here. When you were shouting at our receptionist when leaving you said you were going to leave us a bad Trip Advisor review. As you know, breakfast is included in the rate and was deducted for both the days you stayed with us, in spite of you pushing for a larger discount. When you...
