An historic old coaching inn with first class amenities. A hotel to recommend. Very limited parking spaces. Over flow car park some distance. Ideal for touring East Yorkshire. Handy for shoping on the doorstep. .

Having stayed at The Bell thirty years ago, and enjoying a pleasant stay in a dignified, smartish country hotel, we readily booked again when returning for a family funeral. The young female staff were faultless. The full English breakfast was good although the kippers I ate were almost sardine size. The decor and layout of this building is tatty, extremely...

Excellent throughout staff cheerful and helpful (nice touch taken to room not given vague instructions). We were celebrating a special (50years) anniversary, at dinner we were made to feel special,hearts on the table and best wishes from proprietor. At any time any reasonable request was fulfilled. Staff neatly dressed.

Stayed here for two nights in Room 3. Before you start, if you're used to (and prefer) very polished, standardised purpose built hotels. The square box with an en-suite. All very modern with clean lines etc. then I wouldn't recommend here. That's not a criticism. But the Bell is old school. Creaking floorboards, chintzy and very old fashioned furniture, rough...

A hotel with character, with visible evidence of its historic past whilst offering modern amenities. The rooms we have had on two different have been spacious and individual. Despite being in the centre of town, there was no disturbance from traffic or pedestrians. The only comment I would make is that the public areas tended to be uncomfortably warm, but...

Really interesting and really lovely old hotel - William Morris wallpaper all over the place - best full breakfast I've had for a long time. The hotel has a spa and pool but didn't have time to visit - but the whole place looks and feels very nice.

Four of us went to have lunch at this hotel yesterday and it was a very happy experience. I see that there are conflicting reviews about The Bell and must admit that I do not know what the bedrooms are like or if the beds are comfortable. I do know that the lunch we had was superb and the staff...

We stayed here for a wedding and had breakfast in the morning and everything was perfect. The room was big and spacious with nice decor. The hotel and the area were quiet when we wanted to sleep. It was fine to come in from the wedding late as we just came in the back entrance.
