Three Wells Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Howey B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The Three Wells Hotel is situated in a rural location. If you are seeking peace and quiet, as we were, you will certainly find what you are looking for. If you enjoy walking, you will find many nice walks in the area. However, if you are looking for vibrant nightlife, this establishment may not be for you!

We had no problem finding the Three Wells, although it seemed to be a bit further from the village of Howey than we had thought. A very friendly young man checked us in and showed us to our suite, which was spotlessly clean, well furnished, and comprised a large bathroom with shower, bath, sink, bidet and toilet, sitting area with settee and large Freeview TV, and the bedroom.

The food was excellent. Breakfast was comprehensive, with additional toast, coffee and tea being offered as soon as our plate or cup was empty. We could not fault any of the items on offer, but perhaps the stand out component was the scrambled egg. Or could it be the bacon? We ar enot sure! Our dinner, which was to celebrate a birthday, was also superb. My steak was accompanied by three enormous onion rings, and the only word I can use to describe them is magnificent! The sirloin steak wasn't too bad either! We also sampled the hake, which was very good. Presentation of the food was very good indeed.

Service was friendly and efficient. All of the staff we encountered seemed to enjoy interacting with their guests; without excoption all of them were willing to make time to chat. It was very civilised and extremely relaxing to sit in the lounge and have a couple of drinks in the evening, accompanied by the nearby ducks, swans, sheep and horses settling down for the night.

We would thoroughly recommend the Three Wells. It is a comfortable, well appointed hotel in the middle of some very nice scenery. Just a couple of small points would have improved our experience (although we still regard it as excellent). It would have been nice to have had a small table in the sitting room to put drinks on, and the water pressure and shower temperature seemed a bit variable.

But I am sure we will retunr when we need to recharge our batteries with a couple of days in the countryside!

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Attention to detail in the rooms, through to the very handy and well stocked bar serving local bottled ales. We stayed for one night and only had the breakfast which is all made from local produce and on the strength of that I plan to return and try out the Sunday lunch. The little lake out the front makes for a very pleasant view, complete with swan. I can imagine this to be a lovely place to come to in the Summer. If I was to be critical, the only complaint would be the drive which is a little potholed.

Room Tip: Front rooms across lake would be good, but I was not dissapointed with the view to the rear.

We booked to stay but when we arrived we knew this place was not for us and decided to leave, we were showed the room which looked clean but dated. Can't comment on the food as we left and found somewhere else to stay. If you're looking for a B&B or guest house this will probably be fine for you, if you want a hotel it probably will not be. I must say the guy on reception was very amenable. The setting was lovely too.

Lovely location with fantastic views. Warm welcome on arrival with clean refurbished rooms. We were there on a Sunday night and I have to say the menu was limited, I would have expected a roast meal to be on the menu for a Sunday. However, the food on offer was, we were told, home made and yes it was very tasty. Such a shame though, that after all the hard work of preparing the meal that it was served on COLD plates. Come on Three Wells please warm the plates before service, you cold plate spoiled what could have been a good meal.

We stayed as a group on a university reunion and I really can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The rooms were spotless and ours was a really good size with a lovely big bed. Mike and the team went out of their way to help us out - recommending local activities to keep us occupied and being really flexible to cater to our needs as a group. The bar was well stocked and food was delicious throughout with a special mention going to the amazing blueberry pancakes. Speaking to him about future plans, I can only see this hotel going from strength to strength. It is clear that the team are passionate about hospitality and I will definitely be back for a repeat visit. Thanks for a lovely weekend.
