We spent two nights at The Bell Inn last week and we were impressed with the place. We did have an Amazon Local deal which included breakfast each morning and an allowance for one evening meal. Check-in was ok - we were early and the reception staff said they would let us know when rooms were ready; but they did... More

The hotel exterior is nothing special and is located on a busy road. The interior is very good, modern, stylish, clean and comfortable. We had a 'superior' room at the front (why do hotels only put one chair in a room for two people?) adjacent to the road. We were concerned about road noise but were able to sleep with... More

We had a 2 night stay at The Bell. The staff were very helpful and friendly. One of the reasons we went here was I was able to book a room where we could take our dog. We ended up not having to take her, but the room had a nice dog bed, local dog info and a bag of... More

I have been going to The New Forest for many years staying in Fordingbridge, Godshill and Bramshaw, and have visited The Bell several times. It has always been a friendly, welcoming pub/ restaurant and my recent experience does nothing to change my long-formed opinion. I recently visited the pub with my family in a group of 3 couples and 6... More

Garmin took us the wrong way - stay on main road (B3078) as The Bell is at the junction with the B3079. Great room (number 17) and bathroom, beautifully - I suspect newly - decorated and furnished. Comfortable bed and everything spotlessly clean. It was stiflingly hot when we stayed and, although the sash window was open to its fullest... More

Family celebratory lunch for five (scallops, 2 x cold meat platter, duck salad and soup plus teas and soft drinks: £64). Every dish was of excellent quality and exquisitely presented. Be warned, the portions are small. Very smart venue with attentive staff. Worth it for special occasions.

We were pleasantly surprised at how attentive and amenable the staff are and the relaxing ambience of the hotel itself. The room was comfortable and of a decent size. The en-suite... More
