4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

stayed here for one night bed breakfast and evening dinner. Room was excellent with 4 poster bed, good size and lovely freestanding bath in room. Nice garden to have a drink in. Food in evening was very good and breakfast choices also good. Recently taken on new ownership and we were warned that not possibly as good as previous before... More

Our return after several years , this time we found a less pretentious environment. We had a very pleasant meal which was well presented, we discovered that Bell was now under new management for the last 3 months and it showed ! A very friendly host welcomed us despite not being regular visitors.

We thought we'd treat ourselves and have a 5* hotel holiday, and boy didn't we have a treat indeed! We chose The Bell as we were looking for somewhere that's good for families and welcome dogs, and they sure lived up to their reputation. The staff were so welcoming and helpful in professional yet friendly manner. Nothing was too much... More

Sarah and Richard have raised the standard even higher since they took over last year, bringing a personal touch and presence whilst retaining the excellent experienced staff. The welcome is excellent, the service genuinely friendly and helpful and the administration efficient. A relaxed atmosphere balances a sensible and interesting wine list and a very commendable cuisine with pleanty of space... More

The Bell is excellent in every way - a definite place to visit and stay for the beautifully comfortable rooms, exceedingly delicious food, breathtaking countryside and walks along the river Monnow. All the staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful and make your stay so relaxing. Thank you the Bell for such a lovely break away from home.

Booked a 2 night stay for my wife's 'special' birthday and the Bell did not disappoint. Room lovely and food superb - compliments to Marc the chef and his team. Friendly staff and in particular Maria, who seemed ever present and always friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend for that special treat in beautiful surroundings - a lovely place !

We were fortunate to get some very warm spring weather so a delight to sit in the garden for pre- dinner drinks. The evening meals on both nights were excellent. Also great attention to detail with the bedroom - very comfortable bed and well fitted en-suite. Most importantly of all, the staff were all friendly and helpful. We will definitely... More

We had high expectations of this Inn though disappointing recent reviews did concern us. I think I can sum up The Bell as just not having a heart, it is lacking that welcome and warmth of soul that you expect from such a building in such a setting. Our opinion did no change or mellow during our whole 2 night... More

We were two couples, both celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversaries and chose The Bell on the recommendation of a daughter. It exceeded expectations. From the moment we were welcomed by Richard and Maria we could not have been happier. The bedrooms, themed with the names of Trout Flies, were spaious and comfortable with views of the river. All meals were... More

We can't imagine that there are more beautiful corners of Wales than the Monnow Valley or hotels with prettier rooms than The Bell. And we are sure there are no hotels with managers as charming, helpful and kind as Maria and Estafania. We had such a good time - thank you!
