"Clare stunning Bell hotel."
An overnight stay whilst returning home. Great small town with a great trail to follow. The hotel was plucked from an internet search which clearly showed facilities and options etc. And chosen from photos and review. Read less
Likes:
Good size room with seating and comfortable bed. Coeliac needs no problem. Helpful staff answered queries to pre stay with suggestions. Large car park for overnight parking.
Dislikes:
It did rain whilst we were there after the prolonged sunshine but who cares as still good to walk out in the coolness. Town had plenty to offer on the heritage trail.
Response from Bell Hotel:
Thank you for wonderful review , we have shared the feedback with the team here.
We are the new owners and took over the property on July 31st 2018, we are pleased to share the fact that we are renovating the trade areas, creating a premium offering at The Bell Hotel plus introducing a new premium restaurant called Latitude 52. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future

"Hotel under new management"
We arrived to find the hotel under refurbishment with only the bedrooms open. No bar or restaurant. The new managers had only taken over a couple of days previously and did their utmost best to look after us given the limited facilities. We had breakfast paid for in an excellent local cafe and as the weather was glorious it was no inconvenience to stroll there. Read less
Likes:
The new managers were very helpful and I would be interested to visit again when the venue is fully open.
Dislikes:
We did feel let down that no one had fore warned us the hotel was essentially closed. On basis of managers attitude I would recommend but no experience of what newly refurbished hotel will be like.

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful town of Clare, The Bell Hotel is conveniently located between Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds, 37 miles from Stansted Airport.

Clare itself is rich in history with the Lords of De Clare jostling for position in the medieval court. Clare Castle was home to one of the richest women in England in 1350- Elizabeth De Burgh. In fact, one of the crown jewels was found nearby when the Victorian railway was being built. The Bell Hotel itself dates back to at least 1570 when it was known as The Green Dragon. Some of the beams are even older as they were taken from Clare Priory. Enjoy a meal in our Tudor restaurant and investigate.

Clare hosts several independent shops, a country park and antique dealers. There's plenty to see and you can unwind in one of our 15 comfortable rooms, perhaps even the Four Poster Room if romance is on your mind!

Although history is important we do believe in offering our guests modern conveniences; notably free wi-fi throughout, Sky TV, a function/meeting room with a digital projector and games room with pool & bar billiards table and darts board.

The stables were converted in 1870 and are now well appointed bedrooms.

Our food is all freshly prepared in-house using local suppliers, where possible and we take great pride in providing a friendly and professional service.

NB Please be advised that our restaurant and bar areas will be closed for renovations starting July 31st 2018 for approximately three weeks. But we have made arrangements to have breakfast at a local cafe next door
During the renovation period, we apologise for any inconvenience and offer our sincere thanks for your patience and support
