My family and I travelled here to celebrate my Dad's 60th birthday. We wanted somewhere close to Stratford but with a bit of luxury. It was great! First impressions as we walked in were fab. Cosy feel with a log burning fire roaring away in the bar area, most pleasant. We were shown to our rooms in the main building,...

Point taken and we will resolve that little niggle with immediate effect, to be honest it seems that the hairdryer fairy has been out playing tricks. The hairdryers that we supply in the room aren't travel hair-dyers! Delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back.

We paid 130 pound for a room (excluding Breakfast). Firstly till midnight we had other guests taking coffee on the landing outside our room. They may as well as been in our room! You expect noise while the pub is open (and that's what it is, a pub), but the music got ramped up when the customers left and staff...

From the moment we arrived we felt that this was a very special place. Our room Glanwye, was delightful and everything that we had anticipated and hoped it would be.

We stayed 2 nights at the Bell last week and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The welcome was lovely - even tho' we arrived hours early and our room was ready and we settled in straightaway.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Bell Inn and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our Alscot Suite room was uniquely furnished with unusual interior artefacts. The hospitality tray had fresh milk and home made short bread. The free standing bath positioned in the bedroom added a touch of indulgence but it also meant that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The interior of this award winning 18th century coaching inn successfully combines traditional and modern; a truly eclectic mix. The warm and welcoming bar has flag stone floors, low beams, open fires and candlelit tables. The well stocked bar ensures you can enjoy a host of traditional real ales including The Bell’s own Alscot Ale, guest beers and carefully selected wines, spirits and cocktails. Fresh morning coffee, brunch and afternoon tea are all favourites in this cosy area. The restaurant is more contemporary and oozes charm; it is attractive and vibrant with a buzzing atmosphere. The well designed individual areas lend themselves well to private dining, meetings and parties. Food is served in the bar, restaurant and spacious outdoor areas and the menu and daily specials change to accommodate the abundant seasonal and local produce. The spacious country pub garden with adjoining riverside meadow is ideal for families whilst the beautifully landscaped courtyard garden is a perfectly sophisticated area. The individually styled, well equipped boutique bedrooms (including a suite) are stylish and comfortable with a unique twist. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere make this modern country pub a popular venue for any occasion. ... more   less
