    Clean, Comfortable, Covid safe

    The little self contained cottages are really cute and safe with private front door. I was surprised we were given one of them because I’d got such a good rate on here.. think we just got lucky because of the restrictions. The meal times were very short, breakfast 7-8am and dinner was only served until 8pm. My husband wasn’t due to arrive until nearly 10pm so I had to order cold options (which were limited) and get them to wrap it. They were extremely helpful with this but the food was overpriced but I couldn’t find any other options for the area so had no choice. Food was delivered to the door with a safe handover. The spa looks great and it will be nice to go back when it’s all open properly. We were visiting family but there’s not a great deal to do in the area but good if you want a few days break. We got a great rate, the staff were really helpful and the room we got was lovely so the change of scenery was much appreciated. We will be back!

    did not think this hotel warranted a four star rating as it did not have aircon - a safe in the room , slippers or robe. it also never passed on the reduced vat rate to its customers. apart from that the bar staff who were also the waiters were very good.

    The staff were well trained and efficient, whilst remaining polite and friendly. The room was equipped nicely, cleanliness excellent. The name Ye Olde Bell and Spa is misleading as they are operated as two completely separate entities. Staying at the hotel allows you no access to the spa, I was offered two hours entry for £35 per person. Very disappointing.
