We stayed for two delightful weeks at the Beryl a short while ago (so this review is a little late). We had a huge four-poster bed overlooking the most amazing views. The bedroom was huge and decorated to a very high standard, with various interesting antiques and curiosities lying around, plenty of books; also a lovely en suite bathroom which was full of mirrors and a massive old-fashioned bath. Our room overlooked a gorgeous landscaped garden and rolling hills beyond. A charming country house hotel and extremely elegant; we felt like characters in a Jane Eyre novel - which was terrific! The public rooms were all gorgeous. We spent some time sitting in our favourite drawing room overlooking the gardens, just reading and soaking in the tranquil atmosphere. The owners were just great; two lovely ladies with very interesting life stories. Breakfast was fun. A communal affair with large tables in a room overlooking the gorgeous gardens, where it was possible to have a chat to other guests and share some stories and experiences over fresh fruit, lovely full English and great fresh coffee. Lovely walks in the surrounding area. Also, unusually (and a nice considerate gesture) there were two rooms on different floors containing microwave ovens, kitchenware, milk, extra tea and coffee, so guests could prepare their own evening meal if they prefer a night 'at home' rather than in Wells. A very happy experience in a unique and wonderful setting.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor have fantastic views over the gardens and hills beyond. The four poste...

I agree with everything Yes61 and others have said, this is a lovely place to stay. No one seems to have mentioned the two kitchens for guests to use - such a great idea. They are equipped as one would expect a kitchen to be equipped. Ironing board, iron, washing machine, fridge with fresh milk for those that don't take the little cartons of long life milk with their tea or coffee.
There are two little poodles living her and a couple of cats, my husband is NOT an animal lover, but these pets didn't worry him at all, they are so well trained.
Holly is the perfect English hostess and lady. My cousin left something in my car, and Holly is safe keeping it until my cousin can get to Wells to collect. So above and beyond the call of duty.
Lots of lovely fruit for breakfast and plenty of other choice
I've said yes to elevator, because there is a chair lift.
Internet access is free - what bliss when large corporate hotels with no character want to charge, may you get back everything in live that you give, Holly
We sat in the lounge on our first morning waiting for our friends to arrive, it's a lovely homely room that about 8 of us were using. Such a treat to be in this lovely old English home, thank you Holly.

As a discerning traveller it is always a delight to find a rare gem that still offers the gift of true hospitality. Beryl has it all.
Old world charm blended perfectly with modern day necessitates.
Holly is AMAZING and gracious and the ambiance was so inviting we stopped our travels to simply spend a day enjoying the gardens, grounds and great company.
While Beryl is about 7 miles outside of Glastonbury, it is WELL WORTH the drive to Wells to simply offer yourself a dash of true English gentry and stunning comfort! We stayed in the Master suite and our friends were in Butterfly...equally lovely.

Room Tip: The main floor has traditional grand guest suites! Try for one of these.

Arrived in Wells after being on the South Coast of Dorset at Lyms Regis.

We looked at the traditional old Pub Hotels in Wells village and decided to drive the 1km out of Wells to investigate Beryl's which had received an 'Editors Choice' in Lonely Planet.

The B&B is a 19th Century mansion sited on about 12 acres in the hills surrounding Wells. It is a spectacular property that is in the loving care of the owners. The standard of the accommodation is that of far more expensive establishments, it is first class. The gardens surrounding the mansion lend a tranquility and style to a most amazing property.

Amazing house and grounds, excellent breakfast, spacious room. Unfortunately is a bit of a mixed bag, because it is family run and their primary income, it has some oddities, a mix of antiques and really dated things like the alarm clock or the spectacular in the early 80's bathroom. I assume things are replaced on a need to replace basis. It's just a bit unfortunate as it so close to being really fantasic. Also there are many many rooms being rented so it feels almost like a hotel and you sort of get lost in the shuffle, more than at the other places I stayed. Though I stayed in numerous b and b's and it was the most spectacular on many ways, it was also the one that made me feel least comfortable.
