Had another reservation messed up and ended up here at short notice. Expedia booking wasnt correct. Check in not impressive. Restaurant good particularly the staff. Good nights sleep. Rooms a little "tired". With exception of check in all staff very nice and pleasant. My opinion changed for the better by the time i checked out.

The hotel was very nice. Clean, spacious rooms with a view of the channel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Genie, who went out of her way to make arrangements and phone calls for our group of 5. The onsite restaurant was very convenient. Wifi was not functioning while we were there which was disappointing. Bus service to shopping areas was available but followed no regular schedule so walking was our only option. The dive shop located at the hotel was adequate but not spectacular. All-in-all a good experience and value.

What a lovely little place to stay! Away from the big resort hotels. This trip was done last minute,so my husband and I lucked up on a the perfect place.We were welcomed by Ms Gene, the concierge, who is well informed about all that goes on, on island and makes you feel welcome, with a delicious island drink! The hotel staff was also very accommodating namely Felicia, at the front desk, and Amad the computer wiz :) More importantly, guest rooms are clean and comfortable. We will definitely revisit this hotel on our next trip. Thanks for making our stay a pleasant one!

Our stay at the Bell Channel Inn was complete with unparalleled service and kind hospitality, in addition to its amazing location! The Hotel staff was incredibly helpful, specifically Genie. She helped us make local plans, provided us with amazing recommendations, and she was there to help us along the way to make our stay unforgettable. I would definitely recommend this place over any of the other large hotels and resorts, because the service can't be beat. Also, the hotel has a great restaurant on the top floor, which overlooks part of the harbor, and has great local food. We will definitely be coming back!

Thanks so much to all the staff and Genie especially for a great trip. This hotel is a relaxed, friendly environment. Genie really goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your stay in the bahamas! We would highly recommend.

Tip- stay away from the overpriced restaurants and get yourself down to Sires! Delicious, real bahamian food at a fraction of the price!
