I managed to park right in front of The Crown(take note maximum duration to park 1hr) and take my faithful dog into the pub,ordered a pint of cider and sat down while using their electricity to charge my phone which they had no objections to.While I was there some people had ordered food and they were quite specific about the...

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Parking restriction on the Market Place is a nuisance but there is long stay parking at South Street, at the back of What!, which is a minutes' walk from The Crown. We're glad you found us too and look forward to seeing you again.

Looking to stay in Wells I accessed Booking.com to get some feel for the place. I was somewhat discouraged to find the second of many photographs displayed was of two burly, sun glass bedecked armed policemen! Weird if not alarming. Moreover the location is described as being 'one minute walk from the beach'! I would have happily drawn this to...

Apologies for any confusion. The 'burly policemen' you describe are in fact Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the hugely popular film Hot Fuzz which heavily featured The Crown and the Market Place, hence the picture on our booking.com page. Many people love to stay here on that basis. We cannot find anywhere in the description as being 'one minute...

We stayed at The Crown Inn on a Friday night in July. The hotel car park is small so cars can be doubled parked and due to his we decided to park elsewhere. At the weekend cars cannot be parked overnight in the square near the Inn, due to the market on a Saturday. We had a nice four poster...

Thank you for your review and we're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at The Crown. When The Crown is busy, we do have to double park cars but happily move guests' cars for them to provide access. We're pleased you weren't disturbed by setting up of the fabulous market outside and look forward to welcoming you...

Our room had a brilliant view of the market place and the cathedral, an the Crown has a very interesting history. A delicious meal in Anton's with lovely flavours, and served in the time they said (freshly cooked so of course had to wait a little as you would expect.) The staff were all very attentive and helpful and it...

Gosh, what a super review, thank you so much. It was a glorious day, as you know, and we were especially busy so to hear service is "exceptional" is particularly pleasing. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Very enjoyable two night stay at The Crown - a large, comfortable, clean, four poster room overlooking the Market Square. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere warm. Dinner in the Bistro the evening we arrived was very good with a super cheeseboard to share. Second evening we ate in the pub bar, again very good food,...

Where do I begin? Call in the Hotel Inspector? We arrived at the hotel and struggled to get a parking space, I had to block someone in "that's ok" said the staff, leave your keys and we'll sort it out later which, to be fair they did. The room; on the small side with sloping ceilings but as we were...

Gosh, what a lengthy critique. In response to your issues, point by point: The Hotel Inspector visited us recently and was very happy. You mention the parking to be an issue when clearly it wasn't; you say as much. The sloping ceilings in your room are due to the age and layout of the building. The bathroom is on the...

We are sorry you were not happy, had an lengthy wait for food and weren't happy with it when it arrived. You should have received an apology for the delay. We may not have looked busy in the Bistrot but the bar may have been, hence the delay for food. It would have been great if you had you spoken...

Nice and friendly Inn. The staff were happy and helpfull although lacked professionalism at times . The room we stayed in (2) was nice and spacious but was a little tired because the top section of the wardrobe was coming apart so we didn't use it, the tv remote was so grimy I wanted to wear gloves to use it....
