Being local town folk we are spoilt for choice within a short distance from our front door but will choose the Bell over Spoons and Theoc House if we want a comfortable, relaxed evening with decent food and a well kept beer! Staff are generally helpful and the table service is much appreciated! Value for money every time....

This hotel is superbly positioned and our room, room 1, overlooked the magnificent Abbey. So we were well thrilled on entering the room. The bathroom, no bath but a shower cubicle, could do with a bit of a good clean and decoration. There was a lot of black mould in and around the shower and on the window frames, but... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. Staff friendly, professional and courteous. Hotel very clean and food superb. The outdoor refrigeration unit was a little noisy during the night but nothing that I couldn't put up with. Would recommend staying here to anyone!

We stopped at this lovely old pub whilst visiting Tewkesbury Abbey. The pub is absolutely beautiful, all black and white with beams everywhere and a lovely bar area with a roaring fire. We decided to have soup and a sandwich for lunch. The soup was parsnip and the sandwich was hot gammon on thick wholemeal bread. The service was good... More

Dear Pa E, Thank you for your comments following your recent visit. I am extremely sorry to read your review, as this is not the normal high standard of food that I expect my guests to receive. Indeed having visited us before, you too will be aware of this. The smell in the room was certainly not insect spray and... More

Why stay in a "plastic" hotel when you can stay in one nearly 350 years old with character. Alright it is located on the main road, but so are all of the other hotels in Tewkesbury and we enjoyed the odd squeaky floor board and other historic building quirks. Just across the road from the "must see" Tewkesbury Abbey and... More
