I stayed there for about two weeks and it was a very nice and quiet stay and the picturesque Port Lucaya (with a typical Bahamian market, casino, beach) is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff is very friendly and the view on the water is very nice and there is a good restaurant.

My girlfriend and I were completely blown away. We were not expecting the level of service, the amazing food, the amazing help given by the concierge Jeannie and the rest if the staff. Even the local customers who frequented the restaurant and bar "upstairs" were friendly. The Bell Channel Inn made a long weekend getaway into a truly amazing vaction

I wanted a place with restaurant & bar that wasn't a 'resort'. This is the place to go for comfort. The staff went above and beyond on service. Thanks Sam for the suggestions! it was too bad the pool 'broke'. The Inn is just on the outskirts of the market making it quiet and not a lot of traffic noise.... More

I needed to relax kind of 100 % - Bell Channel Inn with the very personal service of the owners and of course the staff (who seems to have found a home there) made it possible. There is a diving school and of course diving excursion available at the Inn - also shuttle transport to a very nice beach -... More

The rooms and the restaurant have an excellent view to the channel, the food at the Upstairs Restaurant is very very good. I've had breakfast and dinner there everyday! Something that needs to be written apart is the staff, everybody here has been so nice!
