We had a family party to attend and I had the job of choosing and booking the accomodation. Given the reviews and my brother and sister-in-laws preference for 5* hotels, I was more than a little worried about making this reservation. Time was limited and we all wanted to stay in the same place so I took a gamble-and it...

The rooms are stated to be refurbished, but I couldn't see any difference to my first stay some years before. At least no improvement. The beds are quite comfortable and the location is pretty quiet. The manager acts unobstrusively and was very nice to me personally, but I was the very only guest in the pub in the evening. I...

The chalet type room looked OK from the outside but inside was not good. It was so cold and damp....

This hotel is now called The Bell Motel. New owners took over last year and updated the rooms. The motel consists of a number of chalets at the rear of the Pub set in pleasant gardens with ample car parking spaces. The rooms are clean and pleasant with flat screen TV and now well-decorated. Very quiet surroundings. Codicote is a...
