I was lucky enough to experience the Olde Bell on Saturday for an exquisite dinner; the staff and level of service was fabulous and the setting is really quite special. Travelling an hour to get there was worth the magical experience. I shall definitely be back!

Stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights with my husband for our yearly getaway and was appalled. We're both elderly and were horrified at the amount of stairs in the Malt House we had to climb with all our luggage, we were obviously struggling and not one staff member offered to help. A tall, dark haired women in a suit,... More

We had a fantastic stay at The Olde Bell, we booked the Luxury room in the Main Inn and Malt House which was truly worth the price. The interior decoration and cleanliness of the room was ideal. We had a bath in front of the window and the comfiest super king bed. Considering my partner is 6'4 and he still... More

Made booking and confirmed one night for 2 adults and one child. Arrived to check in and booking somehow changed to one adult one night. That was just the start of the fun. Ended with ME having to set a place at the breakfast table as the serving staff stood and watched. Not 5 star by any stretch of the... More

We were really looking forward to staying here. The history and area were what drew us to The Olde Bell. I emailed and booked for 2 adults and 1 child. Confirmation stated 1 room for 1 night. Sorted. We arrived and the booking was for 1 adult. I was asked if I needed a bed for "the baby" - my... More

I chose to stay here on a Monday night - choosing it from the recommendations and in preference to a faceless corporate hotel for one night on business. I arrived tired and hungry at 8.30pm. I was told my accommodation was across the car park ( not in the lovely old building, but a new annex with thin stud walls).... More

Recently stayed at "The Olde Bell" for the night . Stayed in Rm 9 which was beautiful with a lovely shower and free standing bath in the bedroom! We had a fantastic dinner with great service.

Stayed here for one night during the Henley Regatta. We had a great room in the barn opposite the main pub let down by natural flooring that was actually painful to walk on without shoes. Breakfast was a shocker. Chaos in the room where it was served with too many people all trying to help themselves. Serving breakfast in tureens... More

Beautiful 12th century inn, set in the heart of the pretty village of Hurley on Thames. The coaching Inn, updated. Using locally sourced food cooked simply, the Inn provides eating, drinking, lodgings. Parts of the building date back to 1135, with nooks and crannies and crooked floors. For the warmer months, enjoy local ales and eats from our summer kitchen in our huge meadow garden, or in the winter, make yourself at home inside by our open fires. We also have 50 bedrooms and 7 individually designed rooms in various auxiliary buildings, seating from 8 to 150 people for weddings, meetings and private parties. Only 45 minutes from central London, 20 minutes from Heathrow with good transport links and free wifi throughout. ... more   less
