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 booked this hotel a good 4 months in advance out of the sheer necessity of having to be within walking distance to a wedding at the Village Hall. 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

On the edge of the forest but not hidden away, this superb restaurant exceeds expectations. The menu is imaginative and original, but with a couple of favourites, plus a good children's menu too. The staff are very accommodating and friendly; the service we experienced was second to none. The 2 chaps who looked after us were charming. We recommend the... More

Having driven to Southampton for shopping on many many occasions & whizzed past the new forest onto the M27 eastbound, we found ourselves held up in slow moving traffic. Very hot & humid day, so thought..... Let's take a detour. Well, best choice of the year. Only wanted a cold beer ! Found ourselves outside The Bell Inn. Parked up... More

A short break in the New Forest and this hotel suited us well. We booked one of the two suites rooms which had a large bathroom and super king size bed, the room was clean, light, and fine for what we booked. We had a mixed experience with the restaurant. The first night, we both had truly excellent starters and... More

The Bell was chosen by friends, who have stayed a number of times, to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary with us and two other couples. Lovely garden (if a bit noisy due to proximity to road), very pleasant public areas with comfy sofas dotted about. Our room on the ground floor at the back was fairly cool in spite of... More

Stayed for our 6th time and each time it gets better! Took 6 friends to celebrate a special event and The Bell came up trumps. Having stayed in hotels all over the world this is easily the best value for money and the friendliest. The food whilst simple is superbly cooked and presented. Good choices without being too complicated. On... More

Just had a fantastic stay at the Bell Hotel. Booked a deal with Amazon Local which offered amazing value for dinner, bed and breakfast. The evening meal was delicious and very stylish - don't be put off if you are vegetarian (like me) - there's not much choice but it's really different and tasty. Beautifully comfortable room and great breakfast.... More

This is the 3rd time I have been to the Bell Inn ( On one of there offers) Stayed for 2 nights, the room was cleaned to an excellent standard. Staff were 5 star, as was the Evening Dinner. The Bell Inn should be very proud of there Chef and Staff. Felt sorry for the Breakfast Staff, they could have... More
