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

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
