This is absolutely our favourite kind of hotel, old, quirky, historic. It is comfortable rather than luxurious but I'll take comfort first every time! The location is perfect and it is a great example of an old coaching inn. Rooms were comfortable and we slept really well. We ate in the bar for dinner and the food was EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD, as was the service. In this kind of place it's always a good sign if the locals are eating and drinking there, and they were. Breakfast was delicious, the local kippers a huge treat. Can't get kippers where we come from :-( The garden was a delight. Please don't change, Blue Bell Hotel! Oh yes, and the staff were great. If you like super-fancy hotels you'll probably find something to nit-pick here. But if you value charm and real care for the customer then you will enjoy this hotel as much as we did.
