My husband and I have just returned from a great weekend away staying at the The Bell Hotel in Sandwich. I never leave comments on websites but I had such a lovely weekend, I felt it deserved a comment on tripadvisor. The staff were charming, helpful and extremely focused on customer service. We were given a lovely airy room that... More

We just took a couple of days break over the last Bank Holiday and drove down from London the short way to Sandwich. The hotel is well appointed next to the river. It is one that is clearly looked after by its staff who (as mentioned in other comments) were very polite and attentive. The room we had was on... More

We love the Bell we had visited a couple of times. the food is lovely and the rooms are clean comfortable.The staff were helpful and friendly. It's nice to stay somewhere that is different so many places have a corporate image. We love it.

Our party of 8 golfers stayed for two nights and everyone was happy with the standard of accommodation and service. My room was on the ground floor and offered a double bed, plus work desk with free Wi-Fi and plenty of powerpoints, well appointed bathroom featuring a bath with shower over AND perfectly positioned safety handles for easy access.

A delightful, faintly quirky, old hotel. Just an overnight stay for us, but long enough to be impressed by the genuine friendliness of the staff: they really do seem to be interested in their guests. The offer of fresh milk for early morning tea in the room is a nice touch and the breakfasts are well up to standard. Our... More

We were staying at this hotel as a friend chose here to get married. It is a wonderful evocative hotel, you could imagine Agatha Christie writing a Miss Marple novel set here. You enter the building through a wonderful gleaming brass trimmed revolving door to a warm and welcoming lounge area with squashy sofas and antique luggage on display. A... More

Stopped in for lunch at this modernised hotel next to a river. Great setting and ambience. I wss tempted to give it a three since the vegetarian option was quite limited, but the food was ok. The pasta was a fraction soft for my liking, but it was a decent sized portion and tasted fine. No surprises in the taste.... More

Have just had a two night break at this hotel and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the service. The food is excellent and the whole e perience has been delightful. Only little grouse was the rather old shower I our room, that needs updating, but it worked. And we were lucky enough to get one of... More
