I visited this hotel , with a friend, for afternoon tea. I had purchased a voucher, via Groupon. It was the first afternoon tea that I've done, although my friend has been on many. We were both very happy with the service, the selection of sandwiches and cakes and our drinks. The hotel has an old world charm to it...

Looked after me really well - had to leave by 5:30 a.m and, when I came down, the night porter had already put out a pot of tea for me in the breakfast room with a selection of cereals and fruit - beyond the call of duty! It was nice to get an alarm call with a human voice on...

We have visited the Bell many times in recent months. One of our party had been 3 times in 10 days. On Saturday evening we asked the bar man to put the first round of drinks on the bill but he refused and said we had to pay cash! Before this a couple had walked out through lack of bar...

Room clean but bin not emptied from previous occupant. Hotel is in an old building so expect creaky floors but this is not a problem as it adds to the character. Be careful which room you are given as one room is next to the boiler cupboard and it runs all night so not great for us light sleepers. Breakfast...

Reading what other guests are saying this is an ongoing problem at this hotel I wish we had realised. The hotel is more shabby than chic and please don't dare to complain about the cold room. We hadn't realised the hour had changed and were treated like lepers when we arrived an hour late for breakfast. We will not be...

Afternoon tea for two. What a lovely selection. The scones were still warm and so delicious. The best afternoon tea we have had. The staff friendly and welcoming. What an interesting building, many rooms to sit and enjoy coffee or a bar area. Yes it is old but that is part of the charm.

Having attended for midweek tea the starters were very basic and far too big portions. The main courses were not piping hot throughout. The bar area although oldy world is clearly now very dated and the chairs and tables in very shabby state which spoilt the ambience.

I am sorry that the meal you had wasn't up to standard. I hope that you mentioned this at the time, I know that if should come out right to start with however if you mentioned that your main courses were not hot enough, chef would have rectified this for you. We do also have the dining room where you...
