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!

This hotel is a little dated but has charm. The accommodations where ok but the view from the balcony was to die for. The room is spacious and has a vanity outside the bathroom which I loved. Ms Cleo was such a sweet bartender and that rum punch is nothing to play with. Food was ok also They where very... More

My girlfriend and I visited the Bell Channel Inn on May 2, 2014 to May 4, 2014. Since we got there we were greeted with smiles, great attitude, fast check-in, complementary drinks (as a surprise because we didn't knew about that and it was not included in our stay) and transportation services. We also got to use their executive safe... More

My partner and I were here for a week in April and were pleasantly surprised. From the outside, it didn't look like much, but the room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view of the channel. The staff were wonderful and there was this delicious orange infused water up front. The only thing I'd suggest is for them to... More

This is an adorable little place. Snuggled away off of Midshipman Ave. Lizbeth, the owner, is married to Presleigh, our dive master/ dive boat captain, also at the marina that the Bell sits on. We loved the diving with Presleigh, and his nephew Jerry, the food in the restaurant, the pool, the friendly maids; well, you get the idea. We... More

My 4 rating takes in the convenient and well-run restaurant, prompt attention to requests, relaxed and friendly folks. Danish owner has been here 20 years. Well-kept if not spiffy new. It's a 20 minutes walk to amenities of Port Lucaya, Lucaya Beach, the Casino with USD ATM. Right next door is REdbeard's tavern run by Canadian. Good conch fritters and... More
