Nice place but smoking spoiled our experience
On the plus side, really quirky and interesting accommodation.
Lovely room and food. Helpful friendly staff. Good location and parking. On the minus side, there were poor controls in place concerning smokers, to the extent that we couldn't sit out in the gardens because they were entirely dedicated to the smokers, who are in the minority. Why not provide a designated smoking area well away from the buildings?
having 2 large dogs we found it difficult to book a suitable place, but they let us take the dogs with no problem.
they were allowed in the bar. the room was perfect and breakfast was great. service was very good. will go back again.
Excellent accommodation, very clean, thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, quirky and interesting features, staff are very proud of the The Bell and what it has to offer and rightly so.
Staff are very helpful, nothing is too much to ask. Would highly recommend and will visit again.
If you like quirky, this is the place for you!
The Bell Inn is a really quirky but great place to stay.
All of the rooms are unique and the building itself carries loads of history. A really warm welcome from the owner and a superb breakfast in a really relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent old coaching inn with loads of character but owned and managed by a very helpful group of young people who have given the bar, restaurant and accomodation a zany feel but not at the expensed of the more traditional aspects.
Our room was large with quirky furnishings and the most comfortable of beds. Breakfast was generous with a good choice of menu items. Can recomend without hesitation or qualification!
Two night business stopover
This really is a great pub, restaurant and hotel with a wonderful lively vibe.
This is not your run of the mill place. Perfect for those that enjoy good food and beer and live music.
An INNcredible trip
We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a much larger room than it appeared on the photos.
The accommodation and staff were excellent and if you have time it's worth eating in the restaurant. The food was exceptional, particularly the desserts. We are hoping to return soon and try another room. A fabulous quirky retreat!
2nd stay - Love it even more!!
This is the second time me and my partner have had a Christmas stay at The Bell.
We love it there, the food is amazing, the rooms are quirky and the bath is the biggest you have ever seen!. We look forward to our mini Christmas break there. Roll on December 2014!!
Different and querky
The Bell at Ticehurst is different down to the bedrooms being named after phrases from Kipling rather than just given numbers.
Restaurant was in the Pub area and was well presented and of good quality though we felt the choice slightly limited. Breakfast is a little unusual in that you sit at one long table. No issue for us as only 4 of us eating at the same time so not squashed together. Plenty of parking.
