The Bell Hotel in Driffield was a bit of a surprise. We were there for a friends wedding and after reading Tripadvisor we didn't know quite what to expect.
My first encounter was on the phone when I rang to see if I could swop my £120 a night web booking for an £88 per night preferred rate for wedding guests. The lady was really helpful and saved me some pennies.
When we arrived it was to a warm welcome by the lady who took our booking. The booking in was quick and efficient and we were shown to our room.
The hotel is dated but not in a bad way. Think about a sleep over at your great grannies and you are just about there. They have collected a whole heap of old and miss-matched furniture but for some reason its not wrong. The hotel seems to be held together by old fashioned wall paper and bric a brac but it feels warm and welcoming.
The bedroom was large and we had a 4 poster bed. The en suite had a bath, shower, loo and bidet but just like at grannies house, it didn't all work as it should but then again, it wasnt enough to disappoint. Breakfast was again old fashioned and seaside guest house like but there was plenty of it and the large tea pot of tea was a pleasure.
If we were visiting there again, we might stay there but not at the web rate!
