Stayed at The Bell in Maldon for one night after fleeing a caravan site and looking for something cosier. The owner Liz was extremely accommodating at very short notice. Our room (the twin) was comfortable, with nice touches such as bottled water and welcome chocolates provided. There were two highlights to our stay at The Bell - the first was the very cute Pomeranian dogs who are kept away from the guest areas but are happy to socialise if you wish and are very friendly. The second was the top quality breakfast, as good as any you will find, with thick slices of bacon in the full english plus fresh strawberries and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Maldon itself is a lovely place to explore and The Bell is in a great setting next to the Blue Boar pub. We managed to explore several pubs in Maldon and real ale drinkers won't be disappointed. All in all a great if brief stay.
