The food was good, the staff were friendly and did their best but with no proper direction. The rooms although big enough needed a good clean, lots of cobwebs and a good "bottoming" wouldn't have gone amiss. We even had to make our own beds one day as were arrived back before 4 o'clock. No draft lager on first day,... More

Lovely garden in which to relax in early evening. Evening meal did not live up to menu description. i.e. puff pastry top on pie was dried up and cold. Risotto was served in 5 mins so pre-cooked. Room: Could see the layer of dust under the bed. Drawers missing from bedside cabinet. OK did not need them, but contributes to... More

The worst hotel I have stayed in in my life. Rooms not ready. Room was filthy and tired. Food service shocking with many items on menu not available including specials. Wine list was extremely limited with only one white and two reds available.

I looked up this restaurant on Gourmet Society as we were are staying in Belford this week on holiday. It stated "Get 25% off your entire bill, including your drinks. Offer applies to the à la carte menu only". We called in the restaurant on Saturday and booked a table for Monday stating we would like to use a Gourmet... More

This is a very old hotel. but is in very good order. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar can get extremely busy and it is best to book your table for dinner in advance. The room we had was spacious and clean with a large bathroom (9). There were problems however as hot water can... More

A good hotel to explore the local area from. The room was comfortable and the shower was OK (however the bathroom did smell a little musty). The bar food was lovely with very generous portions but the cooked breakfast was only average. Overall the Blue Bell Hotel is good value for money especially on wowcher deals.

This is the second year that our group of "Senior" golfers has stayed at the Blue Bell and once again had a really good experience. Yes, it is a little tired but it is very old and interesting. Food at dinner and breakfast was excellent and overall good value. The staff are very efficient and friendly and Heidi even came... More

We have visited the Blue Bell on many occasions and have always found it clean, staff welcoming and food delicious. We normally stay at the nearby campsite, but on this occasion we were travelling down from Scotland and wanted somewhere decent to eat - we all thought of the Blue Bell and thankfully we were not disappointed. Once again the... More

Faded grandeur but a lovely hotel. Friendly staff, cosy rooms, restaurant serving delicious and varied evening meals and a great breakfast menu. Child friendly garden with plenty of space next to courtyard eating/drinking area.
