We stayed for a 2 night weekend break , arriving to a warm smiley welcome. Our room no 26 overlooked the beautiful river across the very quiet road. The balcony unfortunately needed a good clean, but the weather turned and we did not need to sit outside. The room and bathroom were clean spacious and comfortable. We chose the bar... More

We went there for Sunday lunch to celebrate my Dads 80th birthday. It was great. Really nice food. Great service - attentive, discreet, attended to all our needs from a party aged from 3 to 80! Great toilets. Good soaps, nice soft toilet roll too!

We had a good sleep in a comfortable bed with good quality linen. It was a nice idea offering fresh milk at Reception for making tea in the room. What we found a little strange was being asked to pay the bill in full before even getting to our room, not something we have ever come across before and if... More

Stayed for 2 nights and was most impressed with the staff, food and general ambiance of this lovely hotel. We were up-graded to a beautiful suite that overlooked the river, so that was a great start. The room was just right with a beautiful combination of colours (very calming) - and it got better with the food, Steak & Lamb... More

The Bell Hotel is pleasant, reasonable value, and the staff are helpful, especially Nick the breakfast waiter. A two-night package for £200 includes a dinner one night as well as two breakfasts. The kitchen produces standard fare such as fish and chips or steaks. The chef did excel in producing the most edible Monkfish I have had in a long... More

View from our room over historic sandwich was like looking at hobbits houses. Lovely stay, lovely historic town trail and walks. It was a bit of a pain to keep handing key in, long steep stairs but we were highest place, bathroom small but made up for by huge room, wonderful bed and linens and simply great breakfasts, lovely lounge...

We stayed at The Bell having previously stayed at another Shepherd Neame Hotel at Botany Bay and we were impressed again at the value for money the hotel offered. The Bell is a fairly large building very easy to find in Sandwich. We were lucky enough to grab one of the few parking spaces at the front of the hotel,... More
