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

Booked this B&B on a whim having wanted to take the toddler to the beaches of Thanet and thought why not make a night if it. Perfectly situated in the town close to the water, the park and centre of town the Bell Hotel was surprisingly upmarket, decor was superb, hotel amenities immaculate and very accomodating of children (and golfers...

We have now visited this hotel twice. Anne & Anita on reception were fantastic and we really enjoyed getting to know the fabulous little time capsule that is Sandwich better from this perfectly located hotel. We stayed in a river view suite which was most comfortable and once again enjoyed our stay here.

This hotel is in need of a new broom and I mean that literally. The carpets in the corridors and in our room were filthy and I would not sit on any of the chairs in the bedroom. Have the owners never heard of steam cleaning? I won't even describe the debris deposited by Sandwich's bird population on the window... More

Nice comfortable hotel in a good location to explore Sandwich. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only criticism was certain items on menu had run out at start of service on our first night and we weren't told until we went to order. Food however is of good quality. Would return to hotel for a short break.

We stayed at The Bell hotel for 2 nights, very disappointed with what we got. Food ok waiter service a bit slow but not fantastic, staff friendly, room clean but in need of refurb as could reception area. Don't even think about it if you have any sort of mobility problems as no lift and lots and lots of stairs.... More

We stayed there for one night and glad that we only booked one nigh The room was ok with tea and coffee and fresh milk which was a nice touch. The toilet wasn't working properly, and the shower head and window catch were broken. We parked in the Council car park, at 90p per hour and after mentioning this to... More

We stayed at this hotel in July for one night and that was one night too many. The service in the restaurant was non existent and the food was poor value for money. After booking a room and making a dinner reservation in their fine dining restaurant we assumed we would receive fine dining service but how wrong we were.... More

A lovely hotel, well furnished and very welcoming. We stayed for one night for our anniversary, so wanted somewhere comfortable but where we could dress up a bit and enjoy dinner, drinks and relaxing place to sit and chat all in one place. The value for money was excellent with a great Sunday night deal for three course dinner, bed... More

An historic hotel in a beautiful, quaint town; the rooms were large and the beds were lovely. The restaurant and bar are in the modern part of the hotel, and the food, service and atmosphere were all great. As you may expect with a medieval town, parking at the hotel is very limited, but the main town car park is... More
