We stayed here for just one night recently. We arrived mid afternoon and checked in straight away. We chose a cheaper room when we booked online, but even so the room could do with a little tlc. The whole place is lovely and old, crooked and creaky, but the room itself was decorated in a more modern style. We chose...

Nice hotel with large, well equipped rooms in a nice location but the customer service level needs to increase a hell of a lot for it to be rated any higher than average. Laterooms stated check in was from 2pm. We turned up at 2.50 to be grunted at by the person who checked us in that we were early....

And indeed - we did. And furthermore we got a splendid welcoming by Kate. The hotel has such a nice atmosphere, and...

It has the crooked quirk of a building its age, the standard of finish in the bedroom was ok, the bathroom was to a much better standard. The breakfast was plentiful (hot food and table service) but a bit slow to come. There was a problem with the heating on our visit which wasn't resolved, and we agreed to check...

We didn't stay at The Bell, but had an evening meal there. The food was excellent value, particularly for the Cotswolds! Would definitely recommend eating there if you like unpretentious but fresh, well prepared food with very generous portions.

Many years ago, too many years ago as a young person I sat outside the Bell drinking lime and soda in the heat of the day while putting the worlds to right in the way that young people do. It was a very happy afternoon in a summer heatwave in the Cotswolds. This time it was mid winter, not a...
