Our one night stay here was memorable. Top marks for everything, from the atmosphere in the crowded, lively bar with obliging staff, to the classy but friendly restaurant serving exceptional food beautifully presented, to the fabulously comfortable bedroom and futuristic bathroom. We had a relaxing and extremely enjoyable stay. Somehow the management here manages with great calm and efficiency in... More

Stayed in High Tide room which was perfect: modern, spotlessly clean and well decorated. In addition, the meal in the restaurant was wonderful. I could carry on, the owner is charming and runs a very tight ship, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere superb. All I can say is don't take my word for it, go and... More

Some times Quirky and Quaint mean dark and small. At the Bell in, it means fabulous historical exteriors transformed in to luxurious modern interiors. The Bar and restaurant retain the dark old beams with good wholesome food but the rooms are excellent . The Hotel consists of an Old Pub with two other houses Hill House and High House further...

We have stayed at the Bell Inn several times but this was our 1st stay since High House was added. We have previously stayed in the Lady Hamilton suite and it was very good but lacked a shower. This trip we chose the Hideaway suite in High House and it was wonderful. Well worth the extra cost. The suite is... More

Just come back from a couple of nights stay the the Bell. What a surprise. The food was fabulous and brilliant service. Really first class. Wine was also really good and very reasonably priced. We stayed in the Lady Hamilton suite which was comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. Would have liked a shower (it has only a bath)... More

Horndon is situated midway between our parents houses so an ideal location to base ourselves over Xmas. Besides the location, the hotel is dog friendly so we spent 3 nights before and another 3 nights after Xmas in a room at the rear of the hotel which has good access for the dog. The room was warm, clean and comfortable.... More

The bed was comfortable and the room large the bathroom had the most enormous bath in it but no shower. Breakfast was only continental but apart from battling with the toaster it was good.

Stayed here for two nights whilst on business in Dartford with a colleague. We had a 35 minute drive in the mornings / evenings to and from the office but this was so much more worthwhile for the experience of returning 'home' to a friendly and warm welcome in the bar and dining room. The dining room menu was superb... More

I booked the Bell Inn High School Room for my wedding, I stayed the night before with family, we had a lovely meal in the Bell resturant the food was lovely. I choose the High School room due to the size, there was plenty of room for myself and 4 others to get ready with 2 hairdressers and make up... More
