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

It is possible to book a table via their website, and the menu is on their too so you can arrive with an idea of what you would like to order. The welcome was first class as was... 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

Lovely place, friendly staff. Far superior to the "4 star" hotel we stayed in at Brighton. Rooms were clean and very attractive. Even though it is near a road, I didn't have any problems with road or any other noise and we stayed on a Saturday night with the windows open. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Five Bells for one night, prior to an early morning ferry crossing from Dover. Great convenient place to stay close the port. We were welcomed by one of the owners who was very pleasant and showed us to our room, which was crisp, clean with a spotless en suite shower room. Great choice of teas and... More

We were greeted warmly by Tony and Dave and shown to our apartment. The apartment is great, a private entrance leads to the comfortable living area with a dining table and fully functional kitchen. There's also a downstairs loo and the stairs lead you up to a double room with en-suite shower room. It was all spotlessly clean. Although we... More

Many Thanks for staying with us at The Five Bells, Ringwould however I would like to Clarify a few points to you. 1. We are listed as as INN! which in English means a BAR ATTACHMENT, so there will always be a little noise from downstairs in the bar. BUT as a respectful manager I ensure all Patrons have left...
