We spent a birthday week end at the Bell recently and received a warm welcome. There was a problem in our bathroom but the staff quickly agreed to move us to another room and dealt with it whilst we were out. The service in general was very good and although major refurbishments were being carried out it did not detract.... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past couple of months. I dont normally write reviews but I am compelled to write one for The Bell. From the check in at reception to the restuarant service to the standard of the rooms the service is excellent. This is made all the more professional by Dan the barman.... More

The room was Great, tray of tea coffee biscuits a welcome extra, restaurant service was great and food amazing. Drinks very reasonable prices. Only argument was that there were a couple of minor cleanliness issues that detracted from the stay and could have been easily rectified. ..... ring marks on work tops and carpets and damp marks on walls etc....

We stayed here for a family wedding last week and I could not fault this hotel. We have 3 children so stayed in a family room which was just perfect. Enough room for us all, comfy beds and we even found an xbox in the drawer for the children. The staff were all ready friendly and accommodating of our young... More

The décor was clean and modern, wonderful beds, water and coffee in the rooms and lovely bathroom amenities. We ended up having lunch, breakfast and then lunch the next day... More

It was wonderful not only did they upgrade us but the lovely Anita on reception bent over backwards to cater for our every whim!! The upgraded room was beautiful however we then decided to upgrade to a... More

Stayed here for two relaxing nights on their very good value flash sale promotion. Booked the river view suite with balcony. We had no need for the balcony in February but the view would be pleasant, but for the very necessary flood defence work. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, but especially Anita in reception, Charmaine in the... More

Found an online offer and had a lovely couple of nights at The Bell. Anita is indeed friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. In fact all the staff we met were lovely - a rare and wonderful thing! Observed staff cope admirably with a man at breakfast when the orange juice ran out - he really was very upset by this lack... More
