AccommodationHotelAncient Gatehouse Hotel

The Ancient Gatehouse Hotel in Wells is a small hotel next to one of the gatehouses to Wells Cathedral.

There are only nine guest rooms at the Ancient Gatehouse, which have comfortable beds, a work desk, a flatscreen television, tea and coffee making facilities and en suite bathrooms. The rooms have a traditional-style decor that some people may find dated and some of the rooms have period features such as four-poster beds. Some of the rooms have views of the west front of Wells Cathedral.

The historic nature of the building means that rooms are accessible via a narrow stone spiral staircase, which means that it is not suitable for guests with mobility problems.

It is a cosy place to stay in an old building with lots of character, although it is not up to the same standard as the nearby Swan Hotel or the White Hart Inn.

The adjoining Rugantino restaurant is highly regarded and serves authentic Italian cuisine.
