Recently got back from a 2 day break in Sandwich and thought I should share the experience of the wonderful Bell hotel. New husband and 2 children 12 and 8 (have forgotten their names) set off for usual winter break between christmas and new year. This year having run out of places on the south east coast (hubby does not like a long drive) we or rather I decided upon Sandwich. I liked the look of the Bell hotel on its web site but thought £140 for 4 people for B and B was a little expensive. After enquiring about any special offers I was informed that it was £125 for all 4 of us for dinner, bed and breakfast! Somewhat taken aback by this very special offer I enquired how much it would be for 2 nights and was told clearly and slowly by the receptionist (she must have thought I was mathematically
challenged) that as it was £125 for one night it would be £250 for 2 nights...Needless to say I booked it. It was lovely. We had a large family room, which was warm and well equipped (8 year old found X-box in one of the drawers). The food was fabulous and we ate 3 courses each on both nights! Melt in the mouth lamb, beautiful fresh soup and delicious deserts. Restaurant staff were lovely and very helpful and friendly. I also liked the fact that they has provided a basket of books in the room for the children and games downstairs in the sitting area (we had a family game of monopoly and I'm now divorcing hubby after realising what a mean and conniving landlord he would be).
My only gripe is that it would have been good to have had some biscuits along with the tea/coffee making facilities and that although they have a disabled parking space they will let anyone park there (unfortunately this meant that my husband who is disabled had to park the car away from the hotel). So I seroiusly recommend this hotel for anyone but if you are disabled, give them a ring first and see if you can reserve the parkng space.
