One nights Bed,Breakfast,and evening meal as part of our journey to Devon. Great location,within walking distance of The Abbey,and center of Tewkesbury. The staff were friendly,helpful and efficient overall. The bedroom and bathroom were clean,although for a longer stay a larger bedroom would be desirable. Replacing the shower curtain with a screen would be a good idea. Our evening meals... More

After not having a particularly nice experience when dining at the Bell Hotel recently I saw the signs for 'Live Music' on Friday nights and thought we would give it a go. No thought whatsoever has been given to the poor artiste who has to sing in the small front room with chairs facing away and no allowance for anyone... More

We give all our artistes the option of where they would like to perform, and this was the second time that Rachel Leys had sung at The Bell, and she had chosen this area both times, and is... More

Stayed one night in a ground floor room (27) in the outbuilding. Nothing like the photos. Wondered why the curtains were drawn until you open them and anyone on the pub smoking terrace can look straight in! Bathroom shabby, no plug for the sink, grouting and sealant dirty. What looked like black paint on the net curtains and be careful... More

Spent a weekend here recently and I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. Our room was clean and comfortable as was the whole hotel. The staff were attentive and even when under pressure gave 100%service. I would recommend to all my friends and we can't wait to visit again

Stayed one night, that was enough, filthy hallways, the bedroom had stains on the carpet, bedding was clean but no protectors, mattress was stained and had a hole in it, bed side tables had chipped veneer, hole in the wall, bathroom untidy and grubby with mould in the shower on the sealant. Floor was filthy. Really budget bed and breakfast... More

I stayed on Friday to break a journey. When I arrived, I had difficulty parking, but fortunately someone left at the crucial moment. The receptionist was very pleasant and came out into the car park to help me, having seen to taking my case up to my room. My room was a smallish single, but perfectly adequate, and had a... More

The hotel is cosy and welcoming. Good service and good value. Fabulous location in a beautiful area. Free parking on site - in a place where parking is at a premium. Open fires in the winter. My dachshund loves it too.

We had our wedding reception at the Bell Hotel after getting married in Tewkesbury Abbey - Emma and her Team made a fantastic job of decorating the venue with flowers, bunting and candles.
