Hotel's Favorite
The Bell Channel Inn is a very nice place to stay at when on Grand Bahama. Staff was very friendly and I felt they all took good COVID precautions. The rooms are spacious and the ac is very cold. Food and friendliness of staff at the Upstairs on the Bay Restaurant was amazing. I really enjoyed my welcome Bahama Mama drink, the conch fritters, the steak with mac and cheese and the cracked conch. For a 7 night stay in a very central part of the island with great food, clean rooms and friendly staff, I highly recomment the Belll Channel Inn. And go relax by the pool...

Dear Chris, Thank you so much for your fantastic review! You really managed to sum up everything about our little gem, from our effort of taking COVID precautions, to the way the rooms felt to the friendliness of the staff and our restaurant as well. I am sure your review will help a lot of other travelers to better determine if we are the right fit for their vacation! I personally think that you perfectly illustrated why we are indeed # 1 on TripAdvisor for hotel is Freeport, Grand Bahamas, and it's reviews like yours that helped us to get there! Thank you!

This is a Lovely little place. Every single employee was helpful and very kind. The room was comfortable with some needed small repairs. The pool was clean and gardening maintained. The Concierge, "Gennie" went beyond expectation with sending a friend to my room so I could do some private jewelry shopping. We very much enjoyed our stay. It may be just what you are looking for if you want a smaller more personable stay while you are on the island.

Every time I come to Freeport my friends and I stay at Bell Channel Inn. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. They have a dock slip for our boat and run runners waiting for us at the outside bar. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a true Bahamian experience.

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the staff. Particularly Genie, I was travelling alone on business and it was my first time in the Bahamas, Genie organised a solo tour for me tailored to what I wanted to see, made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed! In the evening I went for one drink at the bar as I was alone and ended up staying all night as the girls at the bar are friendly and the locals too! Would 110% return and recommend. Room was absolutely immaculate too!

The hotel is nice. It’s a pity that it was rainy on the day we arrived and couldn’t enjoy the pool. We had limited time spending on the island, Genie was very helpful in organising us a lovely tour customising our needs. Recommend

We had got to Freeport just after hurricane Dorian. There was a lot of damage but the staff at Bell Channel did a lot to accommodate us. Genie and Lisbeth were great at arranging our activities, scuba and swimming with pigs, as well as arranging transportation. You can count on them to to help you with anything. Also, great food at the restaurant and top notch scuba excursion service. I would definitely like to stay there again. I highly recommend Bell Channel Inn.
