I have stayed here a few times and have had great service on each occasion. The hotel is very old and the furniture and deco match it's age. I love the old furniture and my 4 poster bed, it is all about the character and history. There is a pool and gym and breakfast is very good. I loved the... More

This is my second visit to this place. I just love the way you step back in time as this place is 100's of years old. I stayed in room 19 this time and had a 4 poster bed along with some very old furniture. When I say old furniture. I do not mean old and tacky but old and... More

The car park is accessible at the back of the hotel. It is small and beware of the little walls so you avoid a prang! Our room was no 17 on the first floor, not a flat wall or a level floor in sight. There is a lift if required. The first room contained a desk, sofa, a cupboard and... More

Normally staying in the large chain hotels, the Bell is a rather refreshing change. It is a bit old fashioned, some may say dated in parts, but to me this adds to the charm of the place. All the rooms are different, in comparison to most modern hotels very spacious. Everything is clean and the beds comfy. The food at... More

I like the unique, unspoiled, old-fashioned feel. Oak Panelling in the bar, William Morris print wallpaper. Service is with a smile. Food OK with plenty of choices. Vegetables were plentiful and not overcooked. We didn't have a pudding or a starter. We often visit for morning coffee and a scone.

I have been to the spa at The Bell several times now, and it seems to get better every time. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. The spa itself is lovely - it's underground so a bit lacking in daylight but still a very pleasant environment. One of the nicest things about the spa at The Bell is how... More

Another wonderful spa break at the Bell Hotel, Driffield. All staff welcoming and attentive, especially in the Spa. The food in the restraunt was excellent as usual. The spa break package is certainly good value, would recommend this place to anyone.

Rooms were old and tired. Breakfast was dubious - not even an option to have spread with your toast instead of butter ! Staff were helpful enough, but few and far between when I stayed. Good to have parking on site,

We went to The Bell for a birthday dinner. The restaurant atmosphere was perfect, and the food was good quality and nicely presented. The whole hotel exudes the historic charm of its period, its setting, and what you might expect from the main hostelry in a small market town. Of course it is unpretentious, and it will only be ruined... More
