I remember when The Bell was old and uncomfortable. They have done quite a bit of work and it is a beautiful hotel. The issues are that the bedding is still uncomfortable, there is no air conditioning and the upgrades are starting to get dated again. It is in a great location in the quaint town of Sandwich so I...

This old hotel has an enviable setting right by the old town gate and the river. The tables outside give a great view, and a cool breeze if it is too hot! We had snacks and drinks, and wished we could have stayed longer.

We had a comfortable and highly relaxing stay at the Bell Hotel. The staff were very friendly & accommodating - On the night of our arrival we were offered a flask of fresh milk for tea (rather than sachets) which was much appreciated! The room was very clean, with expected facilities and spacious enough for two. Our room faced out... More

This hotel is lovely, good food and bedrooms with ideal facilities. It's just a shame about the noisy location, especially at night from traffic in the high street , buses in low gear to go uphill. Also opposite two other pubs, with the old admiral having music on Friday and Saturday. The hotel could do with installing double glazing which... More

We stopped quickly for lunch, on a hot sunny day and we ate outside with the dog! There was water provided for him. £20 for a sandwich each, and a drink. Generous portions. We ordered chips as well, so it was filling. View over the river is nice.

Excellent friendly staff who help out wherever they can - we were allowed to check in early at no extra cost because we were going to a wedding and when we got back from the wedding and the bar was closing they allowed us to get a night cap. Nice breakfast,cosy room with a very comfy bed with good quality... More

We really liked it here. Lovely room with balcony overlooking the river . Very comfortable and well equipped. The reception staff were really polite and friendly without over-doing it - a perfect balance. (Penney in particular was a stand out member to the team) Sandwhich can be quite lively in the evenings - and there are 2 pubs and a... More

Very friendly receptionist. Very comfortable bed. plenty of piping hot water for the bath. Breakfast was good. The bar was nice and friendly with a lovely outdoor area. The foyer has good comfortable seating, but is utterly lifeless - no magazines or books, no buzz. Parking was terrible over bank holiday weekend - we had to park on the other... More
