            The hotel terrace that overlloks the cathederal and service there, excellent. The four poster bed was awesome.

            Dining room, too may tables, not managed well, Atmosphere did not complement hotel. Food average, nothing to get excited about.

            The Swan does not need to be in the disco business!

            Great overnight accommodation, will return.

            Couldn't get a table for dinner.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            It is centrally placed and close to the Cathedral.

            There is a slight shortage of car parking space in the hotel car park and we wished that we had checked in a bit earlier to get a comfortable car parking space.

            I wouldn't consider us as mature, but we are late 50's! We went there to stay because our daughter was getting married at a nearby venue called Stowbury. We had the Cathedral Room, a very lovely suite. It is on the second floor, and has all three set of windows at the front of the Swan Hotel. The view out of those rooms is the magnificent Wells Cathedral! Absolutely beautiful. Our total cost for the long weekend in US dollars was $1400. I consider that reasonable for the special event and the luxury of the Suite and view. Highly recommend the Swan. Lots of great shops and places to eat all around the Swan. Lovely little city.

            Small tight parking lot. But then all cars in England are small!

            Room very comfortable even with extra bed made up for child (13yrs).

            Parking - couldn't fit in parking near hotel and had to use a parking meter so no lie in possible!

            Perfect for wedding night. We loved the age of the building and surroundings. Proximity to the Cathedral. Upgraded to Luxury Cathedral Suite very good value for money and very private. Staff friendly and helpful. Facilities all comfortable and convenient. Restaurant good food and service. Will come again and again.

            This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel and both times we have enjoyed it. The rooms are nice and the staff are friendly enough

            Car parking for the disabled very limited.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The setting was perfect, with wonderful views of Wells Cathederal; Our room with four poster bed, was very comfortable although perhaps the bathroom was a litttle small.Staff were helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was great more than enough to set us up for the day.I'm not sure that the cost of the room quite matched its three star status, that is ,a bit expensive! But we enjoyed our stay .

          • Couple
            9.6

            We found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was lovely, very nicely furnished and bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was enormous with seperate bath and shower cubicle, excellent compared to other hotels I've stayed in where the bathroom is tiny! The breakfast was very good. There is a very inviting fire in the lounge which we enjoyed sitting by with a pot of coffee and a brandy after dinner!

            We really enjoyed our stay. The evening meal was excellent and breakfast freshly cooked

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            A traditional hotel tastefully modernised without loss of character. Comfortable modern clean room. Excellent breakfasts with good service both in the restaurant and at reception.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The location of the hotel opposite the Cathedral and the food was very good.

            The room was a bit small and lack of drawer space. The bathroom was minute. The food was excellent but the service in the restaurant was terribly slow I believe due to shortage of kitchen staff/sous chefs.
