We booked the Bell Hotel for 3 nights Wed -Fri. The hotel is quite old but very well maintained with contemporary décor in the public rooms. Best thing about the hotel without doubt was the staff, they really did try harder and they succeeded. Well priced and situated, it was perfect for our mini tour and day trip to France.... More

Had a weekend away, hotel was lovely and staff very friendly. We stayed in a river view king room which was spacious and well decorated with nice views over the river. Also had a meal in the restaurant where the food and wine was delicious especially the fish. The bar was an added bonus too. Will definitely stay again and... More

Only spent one night here (wish it was longer), to celebrate my birthday. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. We had a room overlooking the river. It was beautifully furnished, with a lovely bathroom. The restaurant is cosy and the food was wonderful. The weather was horrible,but that didn't matter as the hotel was so nice. Will definitely visit... More

The hotel is furnished to a high standard throughout. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is intimate and the tables nicely spaced. We ate very well - a new menu and new chef, we were told. Breakfast had many choices and as good as dinner.

Visited the bar at the bell for a few drinks and some bar snacks. Bar has been refurbished to a high standard, it's inviting and cosy. Fairly busy for sandwich early on in the evening which gives nice atmosphere, drinks are on the expensive side, but to be expected in a hotel bar. All staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming....

This was much nicer than I expected. An elegant old style hotel with lots of charm and character. It is located on the quay, which is a small canal dock. Rooms are quite large. I took a bath and bathtub is also deep and long - perhaps the biggest I have seen at a hotel. If you take a shower... More

Lovely hotel a bit expensive for my liking perhaps but then I didn't have to stop there! The room was perfectly ok once I found it! The hotel seemed to be a maze of corridors! Although I did find the bed to be a little on the soft side and the room to be rather hot! One annoying thing for... More

Celebrated my wife's sixtieth birthday here on 28th February, 13 of us in all. We stayed the night of course all I can say is thank you to all the staff for making this a memorable occasion. Good quality rooms, excellent food, and attention to detail. Intend to visit again
