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....

We came late in the night, hungry and thirsty after a long trip. We called to tell that we were late, and if the kitchen would be closed. "Yes" . we were told...but we could get some sandwiches! 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...

Appalling place to stay - on arrival the manager said he could not find our booking,and although I told him I had my booking confirming on my phone and in hard copy he said he did not need this. He promptly tried to find it from his computer and then said it did not surprise him as nothing was working...
