Why we've chosen Best Western Plus Swan Hotel

The Best Western Plus Swan Hotel is located in the heart of England’s smallest cathedral city and faces the magnificent West Front of Wells Cathedral in Somerset.  Parts of the hotel date back to at least 1422. Over the years the hotel has been sympathetically refurbished and extended to offer modern amenities in a beautiful setting. The 48 bedrooms, standard, superior or deluxe, vary from modern contemporary designs to being furnished in antiques with four poster beds. Please note, the age and configuration of the building means that the hotel does not have a lift. However, two rooms are located on the ground floor and porterage is available.

The hotel offers a range of dining options and a choice of different areas in which to enjoy your food, including a 2 AA Rosetted restaurant offeings the finest locally sourced ingredients, the Head Chef and kitchen brigade are proud to support Somerset suppliers and they strive to use produce sourced within a 25 mile radius of the hotel.
