Having attended for midweek tea the starters were very basic and far too big portions. The main courses were not piping hot throughout. The bar area although oldy world is clearly now very dated and the chairs and tables in very shabby state which spoilt the ambience.

Thank you for your feedback. As you say the hotel is old fashioned, it is an 18th century building and is styled and furnished in keeping with this time, however at the same time provides everything needed. Good to hear you got a good nights sleep. Just to clarify, Best western is not a chain, it is a group of...

Just spent three days at the Bell, doing a little sightseeing in e/Yorkshire. Although not a great fan of Best Western Hotels this one is different. Arriving very early for our booking we were treated with smiles and a "anything to help" attitude.

Rooms were fine...dated and quaint...which is fine...but not the cleanest. Breakfast...terrible. Porridge needed chewing (and a good imagination). When I spoke to one of the staff she was dismissive and rude. Totally un accommodating . Not a great place.
