We had a 2-night stay at The Bell.
Our room was pretty poor:-
There was a simple, wall-mounted electric heater that didn't work. We then noticed a small plug-in fan heater that also did not work on the highest setting -and was noisy on the low setting!
Since the duvet seemed quite lightweight we requested an additional one -and this was duly provided.
(We were particularly glad that the January weather was not too cold during our visit!).
There was only one mug with the tea/coffee facilities. Again, another was provided on request.
The room faced the road and was at times rather noisy -poorly fitted secondary glazing did little to reduce road noise.
Decor in our room was tired and somewhat strange too. For example, a 'feature wall' with classic designed wallpaper and matching curtains -but three totally out of character (colour, style) abstract wall pictures! (Indeed, nothing at all would have been better!)
Meals (including breakfast) across the road in the accompanying pub/restaurant were ok we felt -but again, we've experienced better examples previously in Old English Inns.
Other visitors however were overheard complaining that their breakfasts were cool -and not freshly cooked...
Deepak, the very new manager, did what he could to address the above shortfalls while we were there -and I think, in time, he will help to improve both the running of the place and the quality of the accommodation -providing some financial element is earmarked for necessary improvements.
