Found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Reception called before the date of our trip to offer the use of a disabled suite as I had requested facilities for disabled patron. The suite was large enough for my husband and his walking frame. The bathroom huge with an easy access to shower with shower chair and grab rails... More

Was staying there with the CFA fire crews. Staff were totally obliging for anything that was needed. On New Years Eve we were late getting back from the fires (about 9.30pm) and they put on a nice dinner for everyone - totally above and beyond since it was New Years eve. Rooms were nice and beds comfy, air conditioning in... More

Comfortable stay, serene. Massive leg space in bathroom and bedroom. Relaxing sauna and swimming pool. The real bummer was the wifi connection. The claim made is free wifi but the data allowed to spend is 200 MB and that was a real bummer.

Hi Deviakshatha K, Thank you for reviewing the Bell Tower Inn. Nice to hear you enjoyed our large bathrooms and bedrooms. The sauna and heated indoor swimming pool are a big hit. The WiFi is set at 200 mb free and there is an option to purchase more WiFi at very reasonable prices. We find most guests don't use the... More

Hi Fiona, Thank you for reviewing the Bell Tower Inn. It was disappointing to read your review. We take a lot of pride in the cleanliness of our rooms and it would appear that there was an oversight with the cleaning products left in the room. This isolated incident has been brought to the attention of the Housekeeping Supervisor. I... More

We stopped overnight at Bell Tower Inn on our way from Adelaide to Yarra Valley. Very easy to locate and check-in was no problem at all. Special mention to Jodie, who organised the booking over the phone less than 24 hours earlier, remembered me at check-in and had organised a special treat of chocolates and bubbles in our room as...

Rooms are good size - in fact this whole property is a great layout and is just quite dated. The bed was good - the bath - which used to be a spa and is no longer operational would have been quite a show piece in its day. Bathroom was also quite big. As a restricted mobility traveller - parking... More

Rooms are fine, good size and pretty much all you would expect. No bath in the triple room for the kids though. The restaurant for breakfast was such a disappointment. The staff were rude ( the receptionists were both very helpful and kind), we arrived first for breakfast, then waited 40 minutes before our order was taken- we had gone... More

We had a 3 night stay in a queen room. Tea and coffe making facilities were adequate. Bathroom was huge and well appointed. Bed was very comfy. Lovely lounge to sit and watch the telly, and a small dining table for eating brekky. The Bell Tower has its own restaraunt, and a covered heated pool and sauna.
