We were at the Swan for our anniversary and I booked the Cathedral Suite as a special treat. We stayed for three nights with dinner each night. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who without exception impressed. The Manager has clearly followed the tenet “Recruit for personality, train for skills.”
The Suite comprised three rooms created from a ballroom I believe with an impressive copper bath, huge shower, dinning/sitting room and bedroom with walk in wardrobe. All elegantly yet comfortably furnished.
Dinner was in the restaurant and after three nights there was a great deal we had failed to try. Breakfast was well cooked - I judge an hotel breakfast by whether they are able poach eggs, they can - with a buffet selection which did not disappoint.
Waking to the view of the Cathedral started each day beautifully and Wells proved a location which did not fail to provide enjoyment as we explored its town and Bishop’s Palace.
I have stayed on business in many international five star hotels but the Swan has a great ambience and was for us a perfect hotel, perfectly located, and with exceptional staff. Thank you all. less
