We stayed at The Bell for one night recently and were pleasantly surprised to be shown to a comfortable room with good bed and large bathroom. We had no complaints until we were abruptly woken at 2am by the arrival of guests in the room above us. (We were in room 15.) They had obviously had a good night out... More

This rather appealing village in Suffolk provided one nights accommodation for me on a Friday evening at the period built Bell Hotel. Walking into the pub was a little alarming as the locals momentarily paused to check me out as I entered. The Essex lilt predominated with a pleasant banter mainly around sport and politics. Reception was friendly and showed... More

We chose the Bell hotel Clare as somewhere that would take our extended family which included both children & dogs. Room was good, we stayed in no.1, which was very roomy. Bar snacks were simple but good, as was breakfast. Staff very friendly & helpful. Would happily return.

Stayed overnight with friends on a Saturday night as there was an event on the Sunday at Kentwell Hall. My wife and i do not stay at pub accommodation but our friends booked this as it was the cheapest and only b and b available in the area. Our room was on the first level opposite the outside seating area... More

We called into The Bell for a couple of drinks in the early evening and found it depressing. My glass was sticky and the bar area smelt of stale beer. When we sat at a table it was sticky too, cups, plates and glasses were still on the tables around us and remained there for the half an hour we... More

We booked our table for 7.30 and the restaurant was very quiet as we were seated we could not help but over hear another customer complaining about their party's meal and and... More

Returning to The Bell Hotel after 40 years on our Ruby Wedding Anniversary, we were pleased to say that the charm of the building and surroundings in Clare have remained the same. The people may have changed and the rooms updated with Wi-Fi etc. but the care and attention from the staff was second to none. The food in the... More

Decided to revisit The Bell for our Ruby Wedding as we first stayed there for our honeymoon back in 1976! It was so nice to see that everything was much the same as we remembered. All the current staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is highly recommended. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious but would... More

Really helpful couple running the bell. Had a lovely overnight stay. Great dinner and breakfast couldn't have asked for better. The room was lovely and clean bed was very comfortable. Nice quaint atmosphere in the bar. I would highly recommend

Good base for a weekend exploring the area; room was quite small but if you want to stay in then the pub is very inviting so that's not a major problem. Slept well - although above the bar and next to the road didn't notice noise from either (although church bells eventually woke us up). Shower was amazing, breakfast was... More
