We stayed on Friday 27th July, a family of 4, (twin boys aged 12), in a family room overlooking the garden. We would definitely stay again. We found the hotel at the last min via Expedia (who take their cut) so would book direct in future. Firstly, the photo doesn't do it justice, it's set further back than it looks, in this beautiful Cotswold village, its a quiet hotel, with much going for it. The new owner had only bought it a few hours before we arrived! He was a very welcoming Welshman, who couldn't do enough, or be more welcoming. Bar and restaurant staff efficient and professional. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, and many old charm features. We had an evening meal in the bar area, which was v good, and a large screen on which to watch the opening of the Olympics ceremony. Our room was large and clean, with long balcony walkway outside overlooking the garden. Our breakfast was prompt and well cooked, we lacked for nothing, and sat overlooking the front garden (much longer than the photo indicates). We all slept well. The hotel is very well situated for visiting Lacock, which we did, and then later Stonehenge. We found the route through Wiltshire, to our Devon holiday, v good and quick, avoiding the motorway route Bristol, Exeter. The hotel is a little tired in places, but nothing that cannot be fixed easily, with a little TLC by the experienced the new owner. We wish him well, and would stay again!

Room Tip: Our family room at the back was spacious and quiet, well equipped and clean.

We chose the Bell House Hotel to stay in for the one night as we were planning a celebratory meal at La Flambe restaurant across the road and wanted to enjoy their wine list!

Firstly this was not a cheap Bed and Breakfast at £80 per night, not sure how many bedrooms it has but I think its more a pub with accommodation than hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and showed us to our room promptly.

The room itself was very large, the TV in comparison was tiny and we could barely see it from the bed! Furniture was very basic, pine chest of drawers and dressing table, plus one chair from one of the conference rooms!!! Curtains needed more rings and hooks to avoid the sagging. Just all looks a bit dated, but wouldn't take much to make it perfect

Bathroom was a nice size, more cleaning needed though, the radiator was ignored by the cleaning cloth I think!!

Breakfast the next morning was perfect, plenty of cereals to choose, mounds of toast, and an excellent full English served by a very friendly lady.

Would definitely stay here again, but perhaps not pay the extra to stay in the four poster bedroom.

Unfortunately I had to stay here for 8 nights. The pub was decent enough and the food good quality, but the rooms and service let it down. You'll never see any staff on reception, so you have to wonder around looking for someone to get your key. The radiators in my room didn't work for the duration I was there. I told them about the kettle not working after two days, and I still didn't have a working one when I left. Out of five plug sockets only two worked properly - and I couldn't use the bedside lamp or charge my phone overnight. This hotel (using the term lightly) is in Sutton Benger, Chippenham, not Newmarket.

Upon arrival had a nice welcome and was shown promptly to our room. We had upgraded to the four poster bed which cost £80 incl breakfast. On the plus side, the room was a good size, it was warm, the bed linen was clean and well laundered. On the downside, the room was dated and felt tired and in much need of refurbishment. Despite it only being a 2 star hotel, we felt that the standard of cleaning throughout the corridors and public areas need to be addressed.

We booked this hotel as we were visiting family near by and it really didn't disappoint.
I beleive after talking to another customer there that it had been took over by new management, which i may add were absolutely fantastic nothing was too much for them.
The food was delicious and there is a variety of home cooked foods on the menu to suite us all.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and tidy and everything in full working order.
The hotel is also in a lovely location with lovely big garden perfect for the kids to play outside safely.
I would highly reccomend a stay at The Bell House Hotel and we will definatly be staying there again in the near future.
