We were booked into this hotel for 4 nights to celebrate our Coral wedding anniversary so were hoping for something special. We knew this was a old building so was expecting low ceilings, beams and uneven floors. We did not expect the stairs to the first floor to be so steep and no offer of help with our cases up... More

We detour through Faringdon annually on our way from Cardiff to Bedford for a bowls Tournament. The food has always been good and the surroundings of the old pub lend to a lovely atmosphere.Under new management we can only complement Mark and Alison with their catering staff for the welcome and friendly service. Luckily we had the opportunity to thank... More

Stayed with my wife, baby and our small dog for two nights over the bank holiday weekend this August. Had a great time and really enjoyed the stay. Mark and Alison are really friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate us and our odd dietary requirements. The building oozes character. Nooks and crannies, exposed beams and crooked doorways. It's the... More

The availability of two rooms for a one-night stay at fairly short notice over a Bank Holiday week-end holds a clue the overall hotel experience at The Bell. We stayed as Thames Path walkers, other accommodation nearer to the Thames being unavailable. The management couple. Mark and Alison work tirelessly from opening to closing times in this property owned by... More

We have just returned from lovely stay at the bell.

The staff were fantastic we were very tired and must have looked a sight as it... More

While staying at another hotel in the area we wandered into The Bell for a drink, we were greeted by Mark (the manager) and after a cheerful chat with him we decided to eat there later that evening. Upon entry there were tables to choose from we chose one that had a view over the market place,we ordered and had... More

I turned off into Faringdon to stop off for lunch somewhere. This small town has a number of venues which were all very disappointing so went to the hotel. It is not very big and dark inside from the wooden decor but it is not pretentious and has an olde worlde feel about it. You can imagine a big old... More

I am currently staying at the bell hotel for about six weeks. The hotel is very old and it does need a lot of T.L.C. The management are planning on improvements in the near future. I have seen inside many of the rooms and they all have their individual charm. The first thing you will notice are the twisted floors... More

Did not reach expectations set by recent reviews. Decor was tired, room overheated by CH pipes, sash window would not stay open, curtain rail hanging off wall so curtains would not fully draw closed,excessive noise from street up to midnight. Poor value for money.

This is a Beautiful Hotel with bundles of charm. From the Bar with the amazing art work where you can try and find the 9 hidden mice on the walls to the bowing floors on the landing, this hotel is full of history We felt so welcomed from the moment we walked in from the Landlord to the locals; it...
