The "swan song" to our four months in England was a 2-night trip to the beautiful small city of Wells. With some tips from Trip Advisor, we booked a room at The Swan. Now a Best Western Plus" hotel, The Swan traces it's history to the 1400s! The location can't be beat -- the hotel faces famous Wells Cathedral and is only a block from the marketplace that leads to the Bishop's Palace. The staff was very cordial -- they even offered a complimentary upgrade when they learned we were celebrating an anniversary. The room was spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel both days and were very pleased with the food and the service and the ambiance. Highly recommended!
