We booked this hotel last minute, travelling on 13 July 2013 with a family and our dog. Mel & Eddie were lovely, from taking our booking over the phone to the minute we left. Our room was very light and spacious, having a double bed and two twin beds. The bathroom was a very good size which was spotlessly clean... More

We booked a family room in this hotel this week. The welcome from the manageress was friendly enough. However, the room was very old and dilapidated, smelled musty, and was clearly only superficially clean - only the obvious things had been cleaned, and other things had clearly not been cleaned for a long time, such as around the shower tray,...

If anyone has visited this part of the world before then you know it is practically impossible to get bed and breakfast for under £100.00. The Bell costs £70.00 for a double room and you will not get better value for money this side of the Cotswolds. Spotlessly clean rooms, towels, tea and coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, lashings of hot... More

Travelling home to N.Devon after a long extended trip and a car problem we just needed a room for one night. Everything was booked. Several hoteliers rang around trying to help us but no luck. A customer suggested we try the two hotels in Faringdon. The first was fully booked but the Bell had what they called a single room.... More

We booked 2 nights at the Bell last weekend because we were attending a wedding and we found that the rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent, and the Staff were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel for anybody travelling on business or leisure

Visited Faringdon for a workshop. 6 nights at The Bell Hotel booked in advance. 7th night booked later. The Bell Hotel is a very clean and cozy family hotel right at the centre of Faringdon. Towels changed every 1-2 days. Very friendly and accommodating owners. Fresh and delicious food and big variety of dishes, incl. chicken, duck, vegetarian etc. Budgens... More

We were looking for somewhere to spend a night between the south coast and the midlands. We really couldn't have chosen better. A friendly welcome, a comfortable room, a superb breakfast - and the hotel even managed to squeeze our children and grandchildren in for an excellent lunch on Mother's Day, although we only booked at the last minute. Yes,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting a friend. Right from the start everything was wonderful from the friendly arrival to the food and pub! The management couple couldn't do enough and had the room heated up for my arrival on a chilly evening. The room itself was very clean and had a lovely comfy bed! I enjoyed the... More
