We previously stayed here in August 2010 and had a wonderful stay. This time we booked very late and they only had one of the attic rooms or a suite left. As we were only staying overnight on our way for a cruise. Although very clean, this room really could do with updating and I was a little disappointed as... More

A few weeks ago my wife and I stayed here overnight for a wedding party, which took over the whole hotel. The 1st floor room facing the road which was booked in our first names was large, comfortable, very clean and well presented. The staff were very pleasant, with nice personal touches such as when the barman remembered my name... More

Stayed here for two nights on a golfing trip. The hotel has retained a comfortable inn style atmosphere with modern facilities. The room was clean and comfortable and the bar and restuarant were relaxed and efficient. The food was of a good standard, fresh and tasty with sufficient choices to satisfy most people. A special thanks to Manuel (I think... More

We arrived and the service given at the reception desk was as expected. The room was disappointingly small but clean with fairly modern decor. The bathroom was really dated and desperately needed a revamp! We chose to eat in the restaurant, it is hard to believe that it is linked to the hotel! The service was superb the young lad... More

Overall a good experience however check which room you'll end up with beforehand as they get very busy you could end up lumbered with a very small or basic room, we had an attic room and the bathroom to the attic room was very old, scruffy and basic and was completely out of keeping with the rest of the hotel,...

We enjoyed a two night deal at The Bell last week. We loved our attic bedroom but the traffic noise meant I woke early and couldn't get back to sleep while my son slept through. Don't be put off just ask for a room at the back of the hotel. Lovely staff, loved the bar and very good breakfast.

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
