Delectable Dishes.

The Crown at Wells features on-site, traditional English dining. When guests enter Anton's Bistro, adjoining the lobby, they are welcomed by a comfortable and uniquely furnished atmosphere.

Negative Reviews

Untimely Restaurant Service.

While home-cooked, traditional meals are served from midday into the evening at Anton’s Bistro, some visitors have expressed their disappointment with the untimely restaurant service. Previous reports have indicated guests waiting upward of thirty-minutes for the arrival of their order.

Parking Can Be Frustrating.

While The Crown at Wells provides guests with on-site parking, the car park tends to be a little crammed. The allotted parking area, when compared to the usual number of guests staying at one time, can be inadequate. Some visitors have been forced to seek off-site parking.

Late Noise May Detract From Sleep.

Those staying in rooms overlooking the yard and patio area should consider packing earplugs. Used as an overflow area for the bar, noise emitting from the yard can be heard from nearby rooms. Some guests have reported the commotion to exceed well past ten or eleven.
