This is our 5th time staying at The Bell - its a classic hotel but with a contemporary feel. The public areas are beautiful and whilst each bedroom is slightly different, that only adds to the charm of the hotel

My wife and I spent a few hours in Sandwich on the recommendation of a relative. We chose The Bell for a warm and comfortable lunch- it was cold and windy outside! The service was warm and speedy and the smoke ham sandwiches and salad with chips were very good. We'll probably come again.

Having stayed very briefly before we decided to spend 2 days and a night in Sandwich staying at the Bell Hotel.

This is a reliable hotel with decent rooms at a price that makes you happy to pay it. The staff are friendly and try to please. It is let down a little by the housekeeping in the public areas; staff don't seem to 'notice' bits on the floor, or tables that are a little grubby. The carpet in the bar...

We use the Bell fairly often, mainly for drinks. The staff are always really attentive and quick. The atmosphere is superb, very relaxed and the bar is always busy which really says it all. Food is really good too,

I organised an outing with a group of golfers. From the reservation till the checkout everything went very smoothly. The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was good. The rooms were nice. Everyone in the group was very satisfied and the final bill was reasonable.

Our family and our guests stayed at The Bell Hotel for a wedding in March 2017. Our experience with the Bell was wonderful. Our rooms were lovely, the food quite good and the service was first-rate. The staff were very friendly and helpful; each person worked very hard to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. We recommend The Bell Hotel.
