We had a good sleep in a comfortable bed with good quality linen. It was a nice idea offering fresh milk at Reception for making tea in the room. What we found a little strange was being asked to pay the bill in full before even getting to our room, not something we have ever come across before and if... More

have just returned from 3 nights stay at this lovely hotel. from the moment we entered we were made to feel special. All the staff are fantastic - very polite and very friendly from the receptionists, the waiters/waitresses and the maids. Could not fault any of the service we received. We stayed in room 36 which was on the 3rd... More

Stayed for 2 nights and was most impressed with the staff, food and general ambiance of this lovely hotel. We were up-graded to a beautiful suite that overlooked the river, so that was a great start. The room was just right with a beautiful combination of colours (very calming) - and it got better with the food, Steak & Lamb... More

second time I have stayed here and this hotel is excellent, nice rooms, staff are friendly and its well placed to look around sandwich. Its a medieval town and is well worth a visit. It even has a cinema which I have yet to experience. But take a look

The Bell Hotel is pleasant, reasonable value, and the staff are helpful, especially Nick the breakfast waiter. A two-night package for £200 includes a dinner one night as well as two breakfasts. The kitchen produces standard fare such as fish and chips or steaks. The chef did excel in producing the most edible Monkfish I have had in a long... More

View from our room over historic sandwich was like looking at hobbits houses. Lovely stay, lovely historic town trail and walks. It was a bit of a pain to keep handing key in, long steep stairs but we were highest place, bathroom small but made up for by huge room, wonderful bed and linens and simply great breakfasts, lovely lounge...

We stayed at The Bell having previously stayed at another Shepherd Neame Hotel at Botany Bay and we were impressed again at the value for money the hotel offered. The Bell is a fairly large building very easy to find in Sandwich. We were lucky enough to grab one of the few parking spaces at the front of the hotel,... More

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights during Easter break and what a fantastic stay we had. First if you can stay more than 1 night it's definitely worth it as you'll truly get to unwind and enjoy all the fantastic things that Sandwich has to offer as well as the hotel itself. The restaurant is beautiful, the... More

Booked this up as we wanted a special weekend to mark our 30th wedding anniversary.Requested a river view room. The view was not as expected , overlookng a bit of waste ground. The floor above had very creaky floorboards and no sound insulation at all. At 00.20 there was a television blaring and the sounds of sexual intercourse clearly audible.... More
