Having moved into the area recently and having heard some excellent reviews of The Bell I went for Sunday lunch with my family today. From the outside the place looks friendly and inviting and has a superb location next to the river and bridge. Almost as soon as we stepped inside we were greeted in a very friendly and welcoming...

Just returned from a splendid night's stay at The Bell, and was impressed with the welcome the staff gave me together with the very spacious well appointed room I was allocated. The bed was very comfortable, and the reading lights were better than most I have experienced in hotels recently. The room was beautifully decorated and thoroughly well equipped. I... More

We stayed for two nights in a family room and completely agree with the previous review. We were very disappointed with the food both nights and at breakfast, and this ruined our stay. My husband 's steak and potatoes were both burnt and then they served chilled cheese with mouldy celery. At breakfast we had undercooked boiled eggs and burnt... More

The location is lovely - our room, coachman, overlooked the river and bridge. It was spacious, comfortable, large bed and bathroom with excellent toiletries. The outdoor area is very pleasant in good weather, and the dining, bar and lounge areas are good. We were very disappointed with the food, which has got worse every time - we stayed here three...

We stayed in the Blue Dunn, total disappointment, why would you overlook the comfort of the mattress- we have never stayed anywhere with such a bad quality mattress, the floor would have been more comfortable. We were very disappointed, we had booked a couple of nights stay but only stayed the one. On our return home we emailed the Bell... More

Location is perfect, close by the castle, the historic church, the river, and overlooking at the back a sheep-dotted hillside and gardens. The room we had booked, at the front, was disappointing, having rather tired furniture apart from the attractive four-poster, and a dismal bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The helpful receptionist, Tara, willingly helped us move to a room... More

We stayed here as a stop on a trip to West Wales and were not disappointed. Our room was very nicely decorated and quiet. The dinner was delicious and based on excellent local produce. The new management team are clearly trying hard and we promised ourselves we will go back if we travel this way again

This place has a lot going for it. Excellent location, lovely rooms and friendly staff. Unfortunately, when we stayed, it was very noisy. They had an evening reception on, and guests spilled out into the garden right under our window, talking and laughing loudly for a couple of hours. Not the peaceful evening we'd been hoping for. Service in the... More

A beautiful hotel in an idyllic location. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs with a small baby. The food is excellent and value for money. The rooms are plush and the staff are warm and friendly. We will definitely stay here again.
