Sandwich is a quiet and charming town full of many historic buildings. Stayed one night at the Bell Hotel. A very well decorated and comfortable room, had a delicious evening meal in the restaurant and the following day had a good breakfast with the best coffee ever. Staff all very welcoming and friendly.

Booked this fairly late for a one night break with my wife in July. It was a good stay, nice room with good size bathroom and good shower. Reception staff were OK, breakfast service was excellent as was the breakfast itself.

We have stayed at this hotel twice before both times in room 2, on this occasion we had room 1 and both rooms face the river. Room 1 is subject to some foot traffic from the bar to the restrooms but didn't pose a problem for us. The room is well appointed and the bed is comfortable, the bathroom has... More

We stayed in one of the suites in February and generally found it a lovely experience - huge comfy bed and a warm room (once we had scrunched up the heavy curtains on to the window sill from blocking the radiator heat!) However the daily cleaning and tidying wasn't up to standard and there was still rubbish left in the... More

My wife and I were delighted to be offered a room at a reduced rate when I enquired in person. The lady at reception was extremely helpful showing us the room at the top of the elegant staircase. She also explained the local parking regulations and issued us with an overnight pass for the Quay car park nearby. The large... More

Travellers who want to avoid the crowd in Canterbury and still travel the east of Kent will find a lovely place here. Sandwich is sweet and The Bell Hotel the place to stay. They also have a decent restaurant/pub and breakfast was served in there, too, so if it wasn't for a (necessary!) walk around that nice little town you... More

Room 12 quite small and would more suit a single occupant. Lovely breakfast - cooked full English was high quality with tasty sausage and home made hash browns, nice staff - would stay again. Couple of parking spaces right at the door in the Main Street which is handy.

Rooms are delightful with complimentary bottles of water, tea, biscuits restocked daily. The beds are comfortable, the shower is powerful and you're so close to many local pubs with open fires. At breakfast there is a buffet style continental breakfast to choose from with cereals, juice, yoghurt, fruit, etc. There is also a lovely gentleman waiter who gives you the... More

A fine old building in an ideal location, sensitively modernised and well decorated in elegant colours, with a good restaurant and excellent bar food too. Hard to dislike, especially at quite reasonable rices. However, the real bonus here is a charming and energetic staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The management is of course behind all this, but... More

Stayed here as a a birthday overnight treat. Fantastic old building with our room right at the top, no lift but good exercise and a very pleasant room with views over the roof tops. Big shower room and a comfortable bed, TV, tea and coffee with fresh milk from reception, all we needed. The staff are very friendly and helpful... More
