Just want to let everyone know that if you are looking for a good relaxed Christmas away the Bell Hotel is the place. It is very homely , so you don't feel as if you are missing your own home comforts. The staff are very friendly and the room is well stocked. They probably are not the best looking rooms... More

We had hadn't stayed at the Bell for some time. The last time was very enjoyable and we were not disappointed this time. Friendly helpful staff, attractive room and pretty good food too with choice from the bar or restaurant menus for our all inclusive deal which was excellent value.

This was our first year away for Christmas. This hotel is excellent, the staff are very polite and cant do enough to ensure you are happy. We stayed in a suite on the 2nd floor with river view, what an amazing room. The food was far better than we could of expected. Service brilliant and so very clean. The after... More

When your last hotel gets cancelled, panic stations hit. We were desperate for a nice hotel to relax in. Well we found it here, no fuss, no grief just a beautiful hotel in the peaceful surroundings of a quaint Kent village. The foyer was welcoming, the concierge was helpful. The rooms had everything. They are spacious, well stocked and cleanliness... More

We stayed at The Bell for one night in mid December having found most other hotels to be fully booked. The reception team were all very polite, helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a river view room on the first floor, which had a lovely balcony and plenty of space for a large bed, as well as a travel cot.... More

Nice laid back setting, rooms a bit quirky but clean and spacious. Wi-Fi annoying but made up for by friendly staff, bar food good and breakfast very good, set you up for a good round of golf. Very relaxed setting!

The room was outstanding and very warm and comfortable and the refreshments in the room were very good. The room was very cosy and warm. We had evening meal, which was excellent and a full... More

We stayed two nights at The Bell Hotel in Sandwich. Parking is a problem as there are only 4 parking spaces in front of the hotel. We parked in the public parking lot a block away. Dragging our suitcases over uneven pavement was not pleasurable. It was also difficult making our way through a large wedding party milling around in... More

My first experience of the refurb for a one night business trip. A very welcoming hotel, with good reception team. The layout is reminiscent of a country house but right on the river in the heart of Sandwich, a lovely little town to visit. The rooms are nicely decorated but still retain the character of this old hotel. The expanded... More

Easy quick check-in . Staff very pleasant & helpful. Our room was clean & & comfortable but had 2/3 flights of stairs to climb as no lift. (Top floor) Advice - if have trouble with stairs request a low floor room. Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice. Only 4 parking spaces but close to public car-park. Pay &... More
