WelcomeEscape from the everyday to a historic Kentish riverside retreat.
From the moment you step through the Edwardian revolving doors at The Bell in Sandwich, a delightful, traditional hotel greets you, brimming with character and a touch of chic, modern magic.
Overlooking the River Stour, The Bell has been welcoming guests to Kent since Tudor times. Having undergone extensive refurbishment in recent years, the hotel is now very much part of the 21st century whilst retaining many of its charming period features. The result is the perfect, relaxing break that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised. So, take time out and discover why everyone from golfing parties to weekend couples choose The Bell as their ideal getaway destination.
Experience true relaxation and indulgence in every one of The Bell’s 37 beautiful bedrooms; all decorated in a classic, timeless style using colours and fabrics to enhance the feeling of well being and comfort. With wi-fi throughout, we’ve also added special touches to some of our rooms to give a wow factor such as a roll-top bath, four-poster bed and individual dressings that echo the character of this wonderful riverside retreat.
And when it comes to dining, our passion for food shines through in our specially created bar and restaurant menus. From light bites to indulgent dining, the dedication of our Head Chef and his team is evident in every dish. What could be better than freshly prepared local and seasonal produce with a glass of carefully selected wine overlooking the river?
The Bell is the ideal location from which to explore the very best of the Garden of England – take time to discover the amazing local history or the idyllic Kent countryside and coastal delights. Sandwich is also a magnet for golfers, not least with The Royal St. Georges Golf Club – the 2011 Open Championship venue – right on our doorstep.
Whether it’s a heavenly retreat or following in the footsteps of the golfing greats, you’ll find it all right here at The Bell in Sandwich.
