Very old fashioned and packed with character. Even creaky floors. A very big surprised. Took a while to get used to this place but lovely hotel. Staff were good, however watched lots of people behind the reception area not in any sort of uniform and i'm sure there is personal information about clients behind there. The only thing really I...

Two nights' stay at the Bell and hope to return ! Our room was large and spotless. Plenty of character in this hotel - although part of the BW group it has the feel of an independently run establishment. The management pay plenty of attention to detail, such as the presence of a very well stocked, comfortable and well- run...

Stayed for one night for Edwina Hayes birthday concert. The staff were lovely and friendly. We were given an executive suite which was huge and unexpected and made our day. The hotel is very old and like a rabbit warren with rooms appearing here and there in different styles and with odd furnishings. So much more interesting than modern day...

We had a two night stay at the Bell in Driffield. We checked in just before 5pm but the receptionist had left and a young girl told us she had just been told to give us the key. We had no details about the hotel so were unaware of any guest facilities we could use or the times they were...

The staff were a credit to the hotel very polite and accommodating, the spa facilities are totally unsuitable for disabled people. Not a ramp anywhere. The rooms were like something out of a Charles Dickens novel. The room we where allocated had a wet room that looked like it should have been condemned 50 years ago (Room 15) To use...

This hotel is over 250 years old. It's remarkable to consider that during those 250+ years it's past and present owners have totally failed to renovate it's superb character out of existence. I'm old enough to remember when all hotels were like this (or seemed to be). Sadly, most are gone now. The Bell Hotel has proudly preserved it's history....

The Bell is 250 years old and the decor in the public areas is testament to this. We enjoyed Capuchinno, with scones and jam £1.95, but more importantly delicious. It so happened that this was market day, Thursday, and it was wall to wall people. We were staying for several days as we searched for a new home. The staff...

Having been a coach house since the 1700's the bell has a wealth of character. And reminds one of an old fashioned pub, the way a pub should be. The smell of centuries old beer and cigars, people and horses, food, wine and wood blends into an amazing aroma that beats any modern air conditioning..creaky floorboards, doors and windows. That...
