Frankly, I'm amazed at some of the previous reviews complaining (about what is, in reality, VERY small stuff) - probably indicative of miserable people looking for something to moan about because I have to say that the time here has been brilliant. We arrived early and they let us check in and put our stuff in an (immaculate) room. For... More

Just returned from this very interesting old inn. Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the stay overall. The staff were friendly especially the bar staff. The manager seemed very focused and made sure his staff were on track with service that sometimes lacked at breakfast. The reason I only give 3 stars is due to the fact the place just didn't... More

We needed somewhere to stay with our dogs while visiting with friends in the area and The Olde Bell looked just the place. However a series of mistakes and poor service really put a downer on our stay. Before I explain, I have to say that the mistakes were addressed and resolved but it should never have happened in a...

I have stayed at The Olde Bell 3 times now for business and I can't fault it. The staff make an effort that I just haven't seen at the holiday inn nearby at Maidenhead. Nothing is too much trouble. I like the rooms as they are a bit quirky. Yes they don't have wardrobes but they have hangers, comfortable beds... More

The Olde Bell was a lovely surprise for me. Lovely bar and excellent restaurant with friendly staff to boot. A little pricey but well worth it. Definitely going to bring friends and family to this charming spot.

We went to stay at the olde bell as a bank holiday treat. A treat it was not! The service from the restaurant manager (Tony) was appalling. On arriving to the restaurant 15mins before our table was booked, we were told that a drink at the bar while looking at the menu was not allowed. Time was of the essence... More

We stayed there on Friday 5th September as we were picking our daughter up from Heathrow the next day. Fantastic location and very quiet however the hotel could do with a bit of upgrading, it's very charming in the old inn but not that comfortable to sit and have a drink in the bar, the restaurant also is lacking a...

Where do I start.... the room was so very dark and smelled fusty, it was exceptionally basic (no wardrobe) and clearly hadn't been hoovered properly. The corridor walls were dirty and drab, it also smelled fusty. The Inn itself is in need of a good clean - being old is no excuse to be dirty - the majority of the... More

At present we are having a bumper season with full occupancy most nights and I am disappointed and surprised to find your room experience not to the standard. Our rooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
