On arrival there was a mix up with our booking, someone had not made a note of it , but in 10mins it was rectified and we were in our room by 12.10 in the afternoon, the room was dated but clean and spacious and the bathroom was the same, with bath and shower, we were only staying one night...

Called in early Sunday lunch time, four adults and two children. Made to feel welcome and seated at a table although not pre-booked. Ordered food which all came quickly this was presently nicely and acceptable portion sizes not over the top. Price paid was not expensive for a typical pub type meal.

I have just stay at the Bell hotel for three weeks and I couldn’t be anymore pleased. I always found the staff very welcoming and very helpful. The room was lovely clean and comfortable with everything that I required for my stay there. The breakfast was fab. And the bar/restaurant food was excellent. Hence the fact I have put weight...

I guess some would mark this place poor because it is old and tired inside which is a shame because The Bell is a lovely old coaching inn that oozes character from every creek of the floor boards to every crack in the ceilings. I like old quirky pubs and hotels but the hotel upstairs here is in desparate need...

Stayed at The Bell Hotel in Mildenhall for the night after a family wedding. Rooms were disgusting & in serious need of refurbishing. Bathrooms looked dirty with old shower curtain, bath & shower were so off putting that we didn't attempt to use it. Floor tile grouting black & wearing thin. Bedroom curtains hanging off the rail, carpet grubby. Cobwebs...

Brilliant, service and lovely food, your typical pub grub food very well presented, and big portion sizes. You can get a three course meal, I had the nachos for one and this could of been a good size for a sharing plate, and the hunters chicken is excellent.

Manager very nice guy, went out and bought fans for the rooms as very hot in them. But the whole place needs a make over! To say the least or at the very least a good clean! Would have gone somewhere else but had a dog with us, and we required three rooms. Very depressing place will not be returning.

To be honest the rooms need condemning, the carpets are filthy, the paint work was filthy and the mastic and the tile grout was black with mould and the wooden bath panel was falling apart and the bed was like a mattress topper on a plank. Which is a shame because if they spent some money I think it could...

We booked at the Bell Hotel for three nights. We were two couples so we had two rooms booked. We chose this hotel because of its position and because it is dog friendly. We booked through Booking.com which described the rooms as elegant. This is such a wrong description of these rooms. We arrived at the hotel and checked in....

Needed a place to rest my head and came across this small establishment where, even when you arrive very late and the lot is closed up, they're extremely happy to assist you getting sorted for the next day. Not the best of beds I ever slept in, but the ambiance and hospitality really made up for that. At a very...
