This was the 7 time at the Bells the Course is great the Hotel couldn't ask for any better for the price the food is fantastic hence my proposal.
The Staff are brilliant as always all the receptionist aThnd Restaurant staff are a credit to the Hotel.
The only down side again is no entertainment in the nights they used to have a kareoke and a guitarist to keep us in the Hotel because the hill down to the pubs is getting steeper every year and we might fancy a change next year but recommended.

Thank you for leaving such positive feedback of your stay with us. I will of course pass on your proposal to the chef! It is always a pleasure to welcome back our regular golf groups and we look forward to doing so again next year.

we have held our annual golf weekend at the bells for the past 17 or 18 years and enjoyed every single year. the whole set up seems to be geared up for short golfing breaks. the course is very good and has got better over the years the hotel is functional but very clean and tidy, the bar is open until 4am but is situated across the car park from the hotel so does not disturb the guests. a lot of money seems to have been invested in the course and the hotel, which has turned a great venue into a better one ( i can remember the days of a green smelly outdoor swimming pool, which went years ago ) . the staff are very friendly and helpful especially the lady that has worked there for donkeys years ( sorry dont know your name )
i only have 1 very very small complaint and that was that the food didnt quite seem as good as past years, but was still ok
so if any one reading this is thinking of booking a golf break at the bells ,it is great value for money and i couldnt recommend it highly enough
thanks to all at the bells from phil ( hopkins party )

It is always nice to welcome back returning guests especially when they have been visiting us for so many years! It is also great to hear your views on how the complex has improved over the years. We have some more refurbishment plans for this winter, including some big improvements to the Hotel, the Changing rooms and of course the Golf Course.

We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Thank you both for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased that you both has a good time and that you enjoyed the food. I am surprised to learn that the course didn’t meet your expectations. We have had some great reviews of the course this year. I have just had a glimpse of our Greenkeeper’s winter program and he assures me that it will improve even further by next season. I hope that you will come back and try it out.

Thank you for leaving your comments about your recent trip with us. I am particularly happy that enjoyed the course. I am sorry that you found the Hotel to be noisy, sometimes when guests return to the Hotel they do not have an appropriate level of consideration for the other guests around them. We look forward to welcoming your group back next year.

If you should be looking for a golf break, do not hesitate in looking at this venue. Exiting golf course, rooms clean and tidy, food of good quality and volume. Hotel, whilst caters for weddings and business meetings, is very much geared for enjoyable golf breaks.
