Lovely small Inn, very friendly staff. Nice traditional decor. Our room was ground floor which was convenient. The Inn is in a central location, right opposite the cathedral. The bedroom was comfortable with a nice shower and lovely shampoo etc.

We really enjoyed our brief stay at the White Hart, providing us the perfect base to look around Wells. The accommodation was good and the dinner and breakfast were very good, thoroughly recommend the Full English in the morning.

Well, firstly, the positives. We were allowed to take our dog with us. The room was clean and well appointed. The girl on the reception desk was very pleasant. That's about it. There was no porter. The radiator was stuck on hot (this was mid July - mid heatwave!) and nothing could be done to turn it off. The floors/ceilings...

Great location. Breakfast basic but good. Room was clean and comfortable. Parking is a pain but not the hotels fault, they make the best with what they've got. Good value at £75 for the night we stopped.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently taken over by new owners (September 2015) the 15th century White Hart Hotel is situated in the city centre just 10 short steps from the famous Cathedral. Its 15 en suite bedrooms make the perfect base from which to explore Wells and the surrounding area. The restaurant serves locally sourced British food cooked by Head Chef Matthew Briddon (River Café). Wells is a medieval city nestling on the southern side of the Mendip Hills with the mystic Somerset Levels stretching away to the south and west. The history of Wells goes right back to Roman times when it was known that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace. Bristol, Bath, Glastonbury, Glastonbury Tor, Cheddar, Clarks Village, Wells Golf Club and Longleat are all close by. ... more   less
