What a surprise i got when we entered The Bell Hotel on Friday lunch time, not only was i surprised to see an old colleague, Joanne working the floor, but could not believe how busy it was and nobody was helping her to serve meals or helping the girl behind the bar. We had to wait for tables to be... More

Sandwiches were tiny consisting of oneof each of cheese, egg and ham a slice of plain quiche which was one mouthful and a tea plate consisting of a scone,chocolate bun and a sliver of cheesecake. The teapot was replenished. However at £12.50... More

Had a great 2 night stay in this quirky hotel. We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was excellent, as was breakfast, with plenty of choice. We couldn't figure out how to get to the spa from the hotel without going across the car park, but this is somewhere we'll definitely stay again.

Thank you, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, quirky is defiantly one way to describe the hotel :) There is a way to get to the spa from the hotel, as you were in room 16 you would have had to have gone upstairs to find it, if you come and visit again we would be... More

25 years ago The Bell was an extremely comfortable hostelry, with above average amenities and food. Unfortunately, not much seems to have changed since then. Room was clean and tidy, basic facilities functional, but the whole place seems in need of a refresh / refurbishment. Staff were great, friendly and helpful, but they deserve to be working in a brighter... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts. The Bell Hotel is an 18th century building and modernising it is something that the we don't want to do.

We got let down by another hotel in the town so found this place in a bit of an emergency. Paid £98 a room and was told by the manager they always charge that. After we had paid we found the same room available at £68 on some third party sites. Felt ripped off already. The room was large, comfy... More

Hi, Our price for a double room bed and breakfast when you book direct with the hotel is £98. The price of £68 you found on a third party site was probably a room only price for a single occupancy stay, I am sorry that you felt ripped off but that isn't comparative to what you booked. You were actually... More

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. .
