Stayed here for 4 nights with friends. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was well furnished with comfortable bed and a good bathroom with bath and shower. Breakfast was great with a combination of cold buffet and freshly cooked eggs etc. Ate in hotel each evening. All meals were freshly prepared and generally of good quality. Only criticism would...

We stayed for one night for a work event with a group of French visitors. The staff coped well with a dinner involving 62 people, at least half of which were French with limited English. The only negatives were the 'double' bed was very small and the room was extremely hot, even with the heating switch off and the window... More

Recently stayed here, I have to say it did live up to my expectations. I have eaten and visited this establishment many times, but this was the first time we have stayed. We had a great room overlooking the quay, everything was in the room we needed, from iron to tea and coffee making facilities, the hotel was really quiet... More

My family and friends stayed at The Bell Hotel during the wedding celebrations of our daugther and husband and for our 40th wedding anniversary lunch. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant from the beginning to the end. It was a very good experience.

We stayed for just one night and liked the location, the staff and the public areas - but unfortunately the night we stayed was unusually warm for September and our bedroom was too stuffy and hot even with the fan on all night and the window wide open. We'd stay again - but only if the temperature outside was below... More

Coming from London (and paying £120 per night) we expected at least a basic level of hotel service. To say that room service was not available from 9:30pm on a Saturday as the kitchen was closed was not acceptable and fell well below what we would consider basic. Room was small but clean, with ok decor. ( bathroom had peeling... More

I'd like to start off by saying that the staff were very nice and my experience of the hotel was good, but... The cons- - The room was very hot (even with the heating off). -With the windows opened all you heard was road noise throughout the night. Hours of quietness ranged between 0100-0700hrs. -The roller blinds were covered in... More

Our daughters wedding reception was held at the Regency Room at The Bell. The hotel has recently been refurbished and provided a very traditional and comfortable venue. The wedding coordinator was extremely helpful with the initial arrangements, the staff on the day were excellent, the food was of very good quality, promptly served and piping hot. The entire day was... More
