The bells has a wide range of beers & cider to choose from even local Ales. As for their breakfast cafe weeeeellll it's... More

Tired this place for the first time today for Breakfast. A warm welcome and one of the best breakfasts I have had locally for some time. So much so I will be returning. The guy, Tony made me welcome and was up for a bit of chat and banter which helped pass the time as well. Busy place so best... More

Stayed here overnight before a Dover crossing, ideal location for this! Warm welcome and well impressed with the size of apartment. Had a few drinks before eating, very standard menu and cook better myself at home but the welcome made up for this somewhat, until I found a hair 'stuck' in my chicken towards the last pieces...informed them at the...

We kept meaning to try this place as we pass it virtually every day on our way to and from home in Deal. What an absolute gem! All the staff are welcoming and friendly. The food is beautifully cooked and is brilliant value for money, tasty and plenty of it. Well worth a visit, then another, oh and another....

We had our sons First Holy Communion celebration here and I cannot praise it enough, from the food to the service and especially the staff it was second to none and it rounded off a really amazing day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit Deal and the surrounding area.

We recently used this place for a one night stop over for an early ferry. It is 5 minutes from the port of Dover but it's quiet location makes it feel further. Very friendly hosts. The apartment we had was great value for money. The only tiny fault was the showertap needed a clean, but I genuinely think this was... More

We booked at the Five Bells as we were unable to get accommodation in Deal for the weekend, as is often the case. Ringwould is an ideal spot in these circumstances as it is a very short drive from Walmer and Deal. Considering we stayed over a UK Bank Holiday the Five Bells was astonishingly good value. The property is... More

On arrival at The Five Bells we were warmly greeted by John who showed us to our room. The room was spotless, the bed very comfortable with towels laid out on the bed together with Shampoos and shower Gels. We slept with the windows wide open and were not troubled by any real noise. In the morning we chose the... More
