Interesting hotel in a central location although really quiet too. The hotel has a fascinating history and is well narrated in the info booklet in the room.
Staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great breakfast.

Quite a lot of stairs so need to be nimble! We were on the third floor and the stairs were quite steep.

We recently visited friends in Faringdon and came here for breakfast on two occasions . The full English was just delicious, cooked perfectly and there was an option for a small and a large, great for when your extra hungry after a night out. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. When we return we will definitely be back. !

Stayed at the Bell as going to party in area. Staff could not have been more helpful. Our room and bathroom were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was freshly cooked with very good quality food. Thank you very much.

We have just come back from the most lovely weekend, hugely enhanced by the wonderful staff at The Bell Hotel!!

Having spoken to the owner, I believe they are relatively new owners and said their first priority when taking the place on was the food. Well I have to say, they have absolutely nailed it. We ate dinner the night before which was delicious! Generous portions and so tasty! Our only regret was that we couldn't eat it all! The onion rings to name but one were outstanding! Also breakfast was amazing and so well presented! The local sausage was fabulous, as was the bacon and the perfectly cooked eggs! The fact that it was included in the price of the stay was an added bonus. Also free car parking was a great added extra!

The staff were so accommodating. I called the night before as we needed the room early and the lady on reception couldn't have been more helpful, offering to do our room first to ensure it was ready for our arrival.

The terraced garden is lovely and had the weather been better it would have been lovely to enjoy a drink out there too.

This is a beautiful old building, with all the quirky charms you expect from a place of this age. While the stairs are a little precarious and the floor boards a little wonky this wasn't really a problem for us! The bed was comfy and the room lovely and warm! Just make sure you have the temperature of the shower right before you get in it!

In short a lovely stay at a warm friendly family run business and if we are ever in the area again we would definitely come back!
