We recently stayed at this hotel. At first glance it looked very impressive. When we were shown to our room it seemed ok especially for the price we paid. Clean sheets, towels etc, tea and coffee making facilities flat screen tv, all appeared fine. Our room, No 1, was opposite the Abbey with a fantastic view of it. But the... More

It is great to receive good constructive comments, and I have actioned everything that you mentioned, and I do apologise that housekeeping had slipped in standards.

Our stay at the Bell Hotel was very pleasant. The staff were extremely pleasant and welcoming. I couldn’t fault the food. In fact the calamari was amazing - quite the best I have ever had! Yes, there are some issues with the building - squeaky floorboards and single glazed windows - allowing some traffic noise. Given, though, the building is... More

Stayed at this hotel, evening meal was good, staff friendly, but interior needed TLC. Shower in room 4 moved all over the wall and was difficult to turn on, in fact the whole bathroom needed doing, the smell from box behind toilet wasn't great either. As for breakfast Continental choice was vet limited and in inviting, fresh fruit on morning... More

The wife and I booked in for one night to see Tewkesbury. Set at the edge of the Tudor town and directly opposite the Abbey we felt it would be a good place. On this count and others we were correct. The staff were friendly and the menu was fairly good. The wife enjoyed both the evening meal and breakfast... More

My wife & I decided to have an overnight stay at the Bell. Lovely old building. The bar was very cosy and the lady playing live music on the saxophone was superb.

This was our second visit in 18 months to glorious Tewkesbury and we had no hesitation in returning to the Bell. This hotel/pub is positioned directly opposite the Abbey and even for those not interested in its spectacular architecture, the Abbey is a must. Yes you will hear the bells throughout the night and the traffic but that is to... More
