But the best view of a cathedral? That had to be awarded to Wells Cathedral from the Cathedral Suite at Best Western Plus Swan Hotel.
We'd heard about the 'The Room with the Best View in the World' so as Wells was on our list of cathedrals to visit, we asked the hotel if we could take a look. We weren't disappointed.
From the comfort of the bed, the 15th century first floor Cathedral Suite bedroom enjoys uninterrupted views of the historically important 13th century cathedral across its ancient courtyard. If this were the view in Venice, Rome or Florence it would be celebrated the world over. If it was in Monaco it would be have millionaires clamouring to claim it. But we could see why this room, the view and the bed has been rated the best in the world.
