Out of two locks on the door only one worked and no... More

The hotel really does have a great location for walking in forest.The food was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. We highly recommend it. The breakfast buffet on Sunday was equally as good.

If you like your Sunday roasts, then this lovely place would be hard to beat! Tasty, well cooked and presented, and plenty of it. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the surroundings are lovely. Will definitely be going back!

Very good staff - very helpful and accommodating when we needed to leave early at weekend in arranging breakfast before the usual hours. Haverhill, Sudbury and Bury... More

We stayed at The Bell with my baby daughter, they were very accommodating, the room was spacious which was great when you have a little one in tow. Food was good, staff were friendly, would definitely go again.

Stopped here for work, loved it! Turned business into pleasure, and made a 78 hour working week seem like a holiday! Very well looked after. Good clean large rooms with comfortable beds! The breakfast is good and plentiful. The owner is very friendly and very helpful, and the bar girls are awesome! (And man!) I will 100% book The Bell... More

Currently staying in The Bell for work purposes. It's a very friendly place with great rooms, great food, great beer and great staff....so much that I'm rebooking for various stays over the coming months. Well done to The Bell and all the staff. Can't recommend this place enough.
