The Bell At Sax'

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We were caught unawares by the change in management and our whole party (attending a wedding) had to rebook but thankfully this was all efficiently and pleasantly handled. Phew! Generally a good stay. Nothing to complain about which really is all you need. Everything worked, sufficient toiletries and towels, pleasant decor in room, pillows could have been improved but I might be nit picking. What was a standout GEM though was the absolutely brilliant (included in price) breakfast! I admit it is hard to believe how overexcited I managed to get by the breakfast but my omelette (with everything in it) was sublime - pure deliciousness. As was the full English breakfast. Wish we could have stayed for lunch/dinner!

My good heavens. Stopped at The Bell today and had the most spectacular winter stew. Just amazing. My other guests had the pasta which apparently was equally as good. Lovely Natalie & Jonny are the new proprietors and wish them every success.

Do give the place a look, most definitely worth it.
