Fodor's Review

Overlooking a tiny park in the middle of Wells-next-the-Sea, this cozy little hotel and restaurant is owned by New Zealand-born TV chef Chris Coubrough. Guest rooms are stylish, bright, and comfortable; larger rooms have super king-size beds. The wonderful restaurant serves traditional British fare with plenty of local delights: seared scallops with black pudding and chili apple puree, perhaps followed by baked mackerel with lime and chilli butter, or a simple chargrilled sirloin.
