Hotels in Wells
Set on the green opposite the cathedralís west front, this hotel exudes an old, intriguing atmosphere with its centuries-old spiral stone staircase and quaint little passages.
Just yards away from the ancient market place and Bishopís Palace, the hotel is well positioned for discovering Somersetís history and beauty spots. The atmosphere of the hotel is unrivalled, and its original features and characteristics have been retained where possible. Nine bedrooms, 2 of which have four-poster beds, are all en suite.
The hotelís history can be traced back to the feudal barons, and still preserved with the cathedral records are details of its rebuilding in 1473. The Great West Gate which forms part of the property (now called Browne's Gate) is designated an ancient monument.
During the reign of Edward VI (1547 - 1553), the hotel was an armed keep, and after a period of confiscation it was handed back to the Church by Mary Tudor (1553 - 1558).
The hotel offers price reductions for senior citizens, and is licensed for civil marriages.
