“WE HAD A LOVELY STAY AT THE BELL INN”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

We stayed at the Bell Inn on 19 September 2010 as we were visiting a friend that lived in Faringdon.

The Rooms were clean, the breakfast was excellent and the staff were friendly. I would definatley recommend a stay at the Bell Inn.

Reviewed April 19, 2010

I stayed with several family members at the bell over the weekend and found it to be well below average. We had one of the front room overlooking the square. The bed was unbearable, with every spring being felt. The heating pipes ran through our room and were on full blast untill gone 11pm even though it was 20degrees outside. being and old building the floors are very uneven which is fine, but our bedside table was on so much of a slope even my phone would not stay on it without sliding off. No plug socket near the mirror left my wife unable to style her hair and the bulb was out on the light above the sink. The staff were very vague at check in and didnt even tell us about food service times. In my opinion the rooms all looked tired and cheap although at £70 for a double room the price did not reflect this. I think they must have too much money down here or very poor standards!!

If looking for somewhere to stay in Farringdon, you don't have a huge number of choices, but you can't go far wrong with the Bell Hotel.

It is better than average pub accomodation, clean rooms with a bit of charactor - low beams and odd shaped rooms.

You either get a shower or bath, so if you have a preference, request up front.

It is a great location for Faringdon, situated overlooking the main square and Farringdon has a large number of pubs and even a reasonable number of live music events for such a small village.

The food is good, freshly cooked breakfasts and during the day they serve a reasonable selection of bar food from sandwiches to fish n' chips.

Downsides are the front rooms witha view of the square can get noisy at closing time and the rooms are as luxourious as some hotels.

And there is only a small car park (for 4 to 5 cars) although there is a public car park just round the back.

  • Liked — Good value if wanting to stay in Farringdon
  • Disliked — No secure parking - but had no problems
