West Country hotels – Arriving by car
On entering Wells, follow the brown road signs for ‘Hotels and Deliveries’. The hotel is located on your right hand side, opposite the Cathedral. Access to our car park is gained through the Coaching archway. Please take care entering the car park as there is a narrow bend. (This entrance was originally built with stagecoaches and not motor cars in mind, so please drive carefully!)
Car parking is for residents only and is on a first come, first served basis. There are a number of public car parks only a short distance away.
