A really well refurbished, very comfortable and atmospheric independent hotel. Though used regularly for business over the past couple of years, I wouldn't hesitate to spend time leisure or holiday time there if in the area. I've stayed in most of the rooms in the main building and the newer rooms in the annex, which is just a few feet away from the main reception. Each room is slightly different and has it's own character. All the rooms are extremely clean, fresh and very well maintained and furnished with very comfortable beds and very fresh cotton bed linen and pillows. Most rooms have a clean powerful shower and some also have roll top baths.

As if that wasn't enough already, the staff are extremely professional, friendly and helpful, the food great and there is plenty of free on site parking. Must be tried!

Room Tip: After over 20 visits, haven't had a bad room yet. If intending to stay during the day as well as evening, would suggest a room away from the main road, but even they aren't particularly noisy.

I was lucky enough to be able to reserve the 1650 restaurant for my 40th birthday celebration with friends. Kate worked with me in selecting and reviewing a menu for our evening and was so very helpful and accommodating in making arrangements. The evening was a success! From having the beautiful restaurant to ourselves with waiters to cater for us from start to finish, they provided fantastic food and service for a very memorable evening. The menu from the canapes to the dessert was delicious. The quality of the food was very good, kudos to the chef and kitchen. Thank you again for making our dinner a very special evening with elegant surroundings and top-notch food and service.

Lovely lovely hotel. Very welcoming with open fires roaring, the little lounges are superb. The bar very well stocked and to food excellent. The rooms are trememdous.

I've recently stayed in a family room (21) which was great, big bathroom, a double bed, a single bed and a decent TV. Loads of space. I've also stayed in the Victoria suite, which is amazing. Massive living room, fireplace, with TV and dining table, huge canopied bed in separate bedroom, with massive bathroom and lovely feature bath.

The great thing about the Victoria sute is it has an adjoining room (2) which can be either a double or a twin room. Book this room also and you have the prefect luxury family suite.

I highly recommend the hotel, it really was a wonderful stay. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your stay at Ye Olde Bell Hotel and Restaurant, I am delighted you enjoyed the experience and the warm welcome.
The family rooms are all very spacious, well equipped and great value for money too.
The Victoria Suite is just amazing so much space and sheer elegance everywhere....fit for a Queen!! Incidentally did you know the suite was named after a young Princess Victoria who stayed here in 1835? Just one of our many famous visitors.
Thank you again and I hope to welcome you back in the future.
KInd regards

I stayed here the night before my wedding with my mum, we had Victoria suite which was huge & plush. Had a fantastic meal that night. Morning of the wedding we had breakfast & champagne in our room & staff came to check to see how we were getting on. Our wedding day 14th Sept was excellent and went as planned with a gorgeous meal & everyone knew what they were doing from morning till night..thank you so much to the Olde Bell for all your help/advice on the run up to the wedding & most of all for storing my wedding present ( motorbike ) in the hotel for the week upto the wedding. What an amazing surprise :-)

Stayed at hotel for a friends wedding. Very lovely hotel, friendly staff and warm welcome. Room was immaculate!! Being a clean freak, I was very impressed with the standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel. Although impressed with how clean it was, I expected a bigger room for the price paid. Bathroom was huge but no bath and bedroom was standard. Paid £130 which was a 'special' rate. Should be £80-90
The hotel was lovely, perhaps for prices charged would expect little extras, fresh flowers in reception instead of false silk ones. All in all, very pleasant stay, breakfast lovely and wedding fantastic. Wouldn't make a point of booking again unless attending another wedding.
