Every one was very polite all the time, and came across that they wanted you to have the best stay. We stayed for 2 nights with a package that included a 3 course dinner, booked... More

After being very ill and low a much needed break was sought and The Bell provided just this. They were able to take a booking on a Saturday morning for that night. I have been before so I knew the hotel already, but I explained I needed a rest alone and they listened and put me in a room away... More

My wife and I spent two nights at The Bell. On arrival we found that our huge room was rather cold but it warmed up quite quickly afterwards. Apart from that we have nothing negative to write about. Every single member of staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and affordable. And the selection of wines met... More

Stayed for just one night as we were meeting a large group of friends in the Italian around the corner. We were greeted at Reception and parked on the quayside. Very friendly welcome. Our room was very small, but immaculately clean throughout. My only minor criticism would be there was no mirror in the room (obviously designed by a man!)... More

This hotel is in a great location, the rooms are spotless. The bar area has a great atmosphere, very buzzy. We were staying here for two nights with three other couples, on our first night we had dinner here, it was lovely. Breakfast was also great, staff and service really good. I would recommend this hotel, and we will definitely... More

The hotel has attractive public areas with a very welcome log burner. My room was large with a very spacious ensuite. It had all the facilities needed. The staff in the hotel were outstanding and nothing was too much trouble!

Staff were very attentive and pleasant. The main drawback was no lift and having to carry cases up several flights of stairs. It's a homely, but slightly old fashioned hotel and very comfortable. The attached restaurant was excellent and well worth a visit.
