“a nice place to stay in Wells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

Visiting Wells we stayed in Ashford House for 1 night. The keeper is very nice and friendly and gave nice recommandations for a look around in the little town.
The house is about a 1-2 miles way off the cathedral easy to find.
The rooms are very comfortable and it´s enough space for a short stay anyway. Breakfast with fresh fruit and eveything else you might desire is served overlooking the beautiful garden.
We liked to stay there very much.

It was one of the best B&B I have stayed for a while. My friend and I was staying at Wells for a night and this B&B was situated 10 mins from the town center. It was a very relaxing home. Jayne was a very warmth person and we received a very good welcome.

The room was very comfortable and clean. We had a double and a single beds and the beds were lovely. They provided tea, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit tea and chocolate biscuits! Our room was facing a road but with some very good view. The beds were just right and we had a good night sleep. The breakfast was lovely and not oily at all. Also, they provided fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and bananas.

We found that the shower was a bit of the problem and told Jayne about it. I hope she will fix it soon. Last but not least, Jayne knows the area well and gave us a very good travel advice.

We stayed in the family room at Ashford House and had a terrific weekend.

We received a warm welcome from Jayne who looked after us extremely well and gave us tips on what to see and where to eat. The house is immaculate and very convenient for Wells as it’s only a 10 minute walk into the city. Wells is lovely, we were initially torn between it and Glastonbury as a base, but were very happy with our choice.

Breakfast was excellent and all in all we were very sorry to leave.

When we return to the area we will certainly stay at Ashford House again.
Highly recommended.

Wells is a beautiful city and Ashford House is the perfect place to stay. We received a very warm welcome from Jayne and good pointers as to what Wells had to offer. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and offered every comfort.

We stayed in Ashford House for a friends wedding recently and have got to recommend this B&B to anyone who stays in Wells. I don't normally write reviews, but I feel that the service, the welcome and the hospitality that you receive from Jayne is second to none. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of it and was the best we have had in many a B&B (I used to stay away in B&Bs all of the time with work).

Jayne is definately focused on making sure that your stay is as good as it can be and was working hard to achieve this.

If we go back to Wells (and it is very likely) there is only one place that we will stay....

My mother and I stayed at Ashford House for three nights in May 2011, using Wells as a base for exploring Somerset and Avon. We could not have stayed at a nicer place. Jayne is an outstanding hostess, going above and beyond to ensure our comfort. She brought us fresh milk for our tea upon our arrival; she was very helpful in giving directions, advising us on car parks and such, and helping us get on our way for our day trips; she even hung up our handwashing to dry on her line (without our asking) and then ironed it for us! She prepares a delicious hot English breakfast to your order and provides lots of fresh fruit as well.

We stayed in the family room, with one double bed and one twin bed. The room was spacious and extremely clean and comfortable. Both beds were exceptionally comfortable, and my mom and I both slept well all the nights here. The en-suite bathroom was large, clean, and modern.

I highly recommend Ashford House.
