Im very glad to report that The beautiful Bell Inn Charlbury is now under new ownership.... The team are working hard to put this stunning country inn back on the map... Updates to follow along with the new home cooked locally sourced menu. The Bell Inn is now open all day every day

I booked this hotel approximately 1 month ago, had a conversation with a lady who answered the phone, who advised which rooms to book for the best stay. I left her with my Email address as she was going to send me a confirmation. To date I had not received the confirmation, so phoned today, and there is no sign... More

Several members of our family stayed for b&b last weekend as part of a celebration of a special birthday gathering for one of my sons. Although the bedrooms were stylishly decorated, that was the only good thing about our visit. Several of the showers did not work (including mine) and several of the room telephones did not work (including mine).... More

Stayed in a large family group for one night -three double and one single room. First the good news. The rooms were comfortable and up to date. The breKfast was fine apart from abysmal coffee. Now the bad news. Two rooms had no hot water. One room hadn't had the sheets changed by late afternoon. One room had tea facilities... More

Stayed one night here to attend wedding. Unfriendly no welcome too busy serving customers in bar to notice hotel guests! The noise was unbearable, loud shouting going on til 1.00am. Did not sleep well. Would not recommend if you want a good nights rest and a friendly welcome. Breakfast ok although the tea was tepid.

Room in annexe fairly clean but tired with various stains on floor/walls/bed throw. Linen/towels ok. Lovely spacious bathroom. Food ok but overpriced. Garden a mess. Drink prices obscene was... More

We enjoyed 1 night here as part of a trip to the Cotswolds. We chose the hotel because we wanted to get the train from charlbury to oxford and the station was only a short walk away. Our room was comfortable, had a lovely view and had everything we needed for our stay. We ate dinner on the night of... More

Rooms nice, clean and spacious. Good choice for breakfast. Went Oxford on the train as station is a few minutes walk and journey takes 10 mins for £6 return. But the main attraction is the staff hospitality which is Kat and Tatiana, all I can say is they like eggs for breakfast :-) But thanks to all the staff there... More

My wife and I booked a two night stay to celebrate our Ruby wedding. We enjoyed the stay and the weather. Rooms basic but very clean. Food very good but room very cold, we could not get the radiator to work, we did ask but was told the thermostat had to kick in, it never did. Saying that we had... More
