Belying its unattractive brick exterior, the Bell surprised us by its quality. Completely (and well) redesigned inside, the bedrooms and bathrooms are excellent, and the public rooms - restaurant, breakfast room, bar/coffee shop are all most pleasant. The hotel is spotless throughout, the staff pleasant, halpful and well trained. The food is very good by any standards, imaginative, well cooked and mainly locally sourced, and in all probability the best to be had in Sandwich. The central location by the old Toll Bridge on the banks of the Stour is ideal and, if you like a pint of good ale in civilised surroundings, try the George and Dragon, a stone's throw away. Try for a river view room.
If only more provincial hotels came up to this standard!More
