Business trip

This is a fantastic little place to stay.

The rooms are large with everything you need including a minibar at reasonable prices. The rooms are detached from the Bell Pub but only by about 10 meters. The Pub itself is very welcoming and cosy and serves excellent food. Breakfast is also served in the pub and is also excellent and cooked to order. All in all - cant fault the place.

Last minute break

Very comfortable accommodation ,ideal for a 1 night stopover whilst visiting nearby villages .

Lovely host, nothing too much trouble.everything we needed in the room was provided, excellent evening meal in the restaurant and fresh breakfast in the morning...not too early.

Great stay!

We just stayed at The Bell for one night, but I wish we could have stayed longer.

The room is actually in a converted barn and it felt like having a cottage right next to a pub. Very spaceous and comfortable with an outside sitting area. The breakfast was also lovely!

Wonderfully relaxing

Everything about this stay was wonderful, with the slight exception that the staff were accommodating and professional, but a bit distant and stiff.

Food, rooms, pub and beer/cider were A1. Everything wonderfully comfortable. But any doubts about the atmosphere were dispelled when we met the owner, who arrived home from holiday on our second night, and who was charming and welcoming. I would definitely go again but would hope that the Landlord was in residence!!.

The Bell Inn Iden

We had an excellent overnight stop at the Bell Inn.The welcome was both efficient and FRIENDLY.

Our room was one of three separate from the pub. It was large, well equipped with a customer friendly price range of drinks and snacks. The bed was comfortable with choice of pillows. The en suite, again was roomy and clean. The dinner was excellent. Scallops to die for and a main course homemade Desperate Dan chicken and leek pie with fabulous chips. If you're staying then eat here. The breakfast was also very good.

We had a wonderful nights stay in this accommodation.

Lovely country village setting. Breakfast was excellent and the whole pub/accommodation was very clean. Please dont be put off by it being just outside of Rye as it is so easy to find. We were visiting Rye for the weekend and The Bell at Iden was only a few minutes away. Would stay again.
