I have stayed at the Bell a few times for business trips and it has always been excellent. On my last visit I was lucky enough to get a suite. A beautiful and huge room looking over the River and boats. The rooms was perfect and has loads of space and tall ceilings giving it a very grand feeling. Dinner... More

We recently spent a couple of nights here revisiting Sandwich. Our lovely room overlooking the quay was very clean & comfortable. Breakfast & dinner both very good with excellent service from staff, particularly a young man who is an Old Manwoodian. We would certainly stay here again.

We visited the Bell Hotel for a family meal. We ordered from the Restaurant menu ( I think there was a different menu in the bar) . The food was excellent and lovely, and staff were very pleasant. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The hotel itself looks gorgeous, however we were not staying there. I would definitely recommend the... More

We stayed for the weekend, lucky for us it was French Weekend in Sandwich so the village was bustling. Unfortunately, our 'twin' room was on the third floor (no lift) which we were not told about. This was not suitable (for personal reasons) and so we were moved to the first floor to a "small" double room at the front... More

We had a river view room. The room was tastefully decorated and spacious. The bathroom was clean. It would have been nice to have glass shower partition rather than a shower curtain, and better water pressure would have been good for the shower, but these are minor points. There was a good range of toiletries (including conditioner), and the hairdryer... More

I regularly stay here on business travel and would recommend it. The hotel, bar and restaurant are nice. All of the staff are great especially those on reception and breakfast. Limited parking in front of hotel but plenty just round the corner. Sandwich is a lovely area and has some great golf courses on the doorstep.

We were very pleased with our initial booking as we were 'upgraded' to a 'four poster room' and upon arrival we were very happy with how we were treated by the polite staff. Unfortunately parking posed a minor problem as there are only 4 allocated spaces and we had to pay for public parking over the road. We also appreciated... More
