On recommendation, I booked this hotel for the wedding of my daughter, Hannah to her partner Lee and could not be more happy with the Bell Inn hotel. On meeting the planner and going through what the couple required for the day, we were guided through what the hotel could do for us. All requests were met and exceeded. With... More

Absolutely fantastic place. Food is to die for. Service is second to none. Lovely atmosphere in a lovely building. Good prices. Will definitely be back. Does get busy but very accommodating when booking. Really can't find anything to fault this place

Great lunch in a beautiful courtyard. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, great food, very generous portions and great service. Would thoroughly recommend this place can't wait to visit again, seemed quite busy for a Tuesday lunchtime which speaks volumes.

As a local who has lived in the village of Stilton for many years I have eaten at the Bell multiple times. The food has, in my opinion always been really good however lately it's excellent and my wife and I now find ourselves eating here very regularly. I had the Stilton and broccoli soup and the rib eye steak... More

We spent two nights at the Bell hotel in mid August. This is a very well managed hotel. The staff are excellent - friendly, keen to please and very efficient. We ate in the bar both evenings - the food was very good from an interesting menu - way better than a typical Inn. And being in the bar there... More

The wedding was incredibly well organised, staffed and catered. Although the choice wasn't much, all options were incredible from what I heard. Not enough good things could be said about the staff and the way the wedding was handled. We had a room at the front of the hotel which was pleasantly quiet, although rather basic for the cost. The... More

I have stayed here a few times, but recently with customers. The staff could not be better, so friendly and helpful. However the rooms are pretty average. Beds are not great, furniture is a little battered around the edges. But the bathroom was really disappointing. Lino floor, shower that had no pressure. Price was ok at £95 for the night.... More

Nice traditional old coaching inn / hotel providing conference facilities for small business meetings. Fully stocked Bar with many local ales and full dinner menu and bar menu. Bedrooms are fairly basic but are clean and comfortable with an ensuite with a modern shower. Full English breakfast was superb. Very efficient and friendly staff.

There is nothing as nice as alfresco dining on a beautiful summers day. It's on beautiful evenings like these that I wish I didn't work so many nights :) I believe that since our new Head Chef came on board the vegetarian options have improved, but as you point out there is always room for more variety. I would suggest... More
