We had a family party to attend and I had the job of choosing and booking the accomodation. Given the reviews and my brother and sister-in-laws preference for 5* hotels, I was more than a little worried about making this reservation. Time was limited and we all wanted to stay in the same place so I took a gamble-and it... More

The rooms are stated to be refurbished, but I couldn't see any difference to my first stay some years before. At least no improvement. The beds are quite comfortable and the location is pretty quiet. The manager acts unobstrusively and was very nice to me personally, but I was the very only guest in the pub in the evening. I... More

This place is called the Bell now. I am guessing they haven't changed the name on Trip Advisor so people may not see the dreadful reviews.I needed a place to stay with my 2 daughters age 6&10 close to Knebworth. The chalet type room looked OK from the outside but inside was not good. It was so cold and damp.... More

I had a recent one night stay in room 9 of the Bell Motel (please change the name on tripadvisor). First impression was good nice looking pub, chalet type rooms externally pleasing though signs of poor maintenance. Go into room smelt strongly of damp, bath panel off and propped up in bedroom, dehumidifier switched on but not working because reservoir... More

This hotel is now called The Bell Motel. New owners took over last year and updated the rooms. The motel consists of a number of chalets at the rear of the Pub set in pleasant gardens with ample car parking spaces. The rooms are clean and pleasant with flat screen TV and now well-decorated. Very quiet surroundings. Codicote is a... More

Whlist the bed was comfortable we found it difficult to sleep with the fire alarm system casting an eerie green over the complete room all night. Bathroom... More

The TV was antique, no remote, channels were basic and no aeriel made the programmes snowy to view and hard to hear. The bathroon taps were scaled and water streaked, the toilet pan needed a...
