The hotel is situated in a small Cotswold village. It has plenty of car parking spaces at the rear. The staff were very polite and friendly during our two night stay. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was both spacious and comfortable. The only negative to the room was the toilet in the ensuite bathroom, its... More

Stayed on business and was given one of the rooms above the pub. Nice room with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom needed updated as the shower was not very powerful and toilet was in an alcove - a bigger person would struggle to use the facilities. Good pub food and there is a nice room with roaring fire to eat... More

Friendly staff, good manager who hasn't been their long so don't listen to the bad reviews!!, enjoyed the food and the locals were friendly! Charlbury is a great little Cotswold town with a number of good pubs. I'd go again and take my wife next time!

My partner and I stayed here for one night in July. The room was spacious, clean, and had a large shower room. We ate here in the evening as there was little choice nearby, and I wasn't very impressed. We both had ham, egg and chips which was very average for the price. We had a breakfast included which was... More

Read some negative reviews regarding The Bell. These made my decision to stay and what a good decision it was. Knowing I was going to arrive late, I rang to let them know and to ask if a sandwich could be made for me as I knew kitchen would be closed. On my arrival late on Monday night I received... More

We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. Darren,our host, was always there when you needed him. The girls running the bar, Kate, Lauren and Sam were great company, very friendly and efficient. When Lauren is cooking breakfast, ask for the extra egg! The room was very big as was the bathroom. The place is spotless, the food... More

We popped in to The Bell with 2 dogs and 4 kids, on a camping trip. The staff could not have been more friendly. Really pleased to see the dogs and made them very welcome with cuddles and treats. Lovely decor and fireplace. Good food, especially the burgers and anti pasti. Would recommend very highly. Socks and Bertie send you... More

Firstly, I'm not in the habit of writing 'bad' reviews as I always think there's too many of them so I look for the good in everywhere I go. But this place, I'm sorry to say didn't provide me with much to write about. The lady behind the bar was friendly enough but the manager certainly does a good impression... More

Stayed here in June 2015 for a night of Van Morrison at Blenheim, i mention this because transport was a nightmare. Nearer hotels and taxis all booked, but I'm glad we ended up here. Staff advised the bus takes you door to door, and it did. We enjoyed a large glass of wine in the sun trap beer garden while... More

Lovely accommodation in a lovely location! Accommodation was clean & spacious... & quiet! Dinner was great. If wanting a cooked breakfast there were lots of choices... not so many options if you wanted a continental one, but still great value for money, when included in the room price! Staff were helpful & smiley! Would definitely recommend if wanting a stop... More
