I flew in from the west coast of the US and needed a place to stay the night prior to setting out. Airport hotels are... airport hotels. The Olde Bell showed up as within 30 minutes from Heathrow, right on the Thames. The drive was simple, the hotel immaculate. All the touches of a fine old hotel. I will be bringing the family back next time!

Very beautiful hotel, good to stay for 1-2 days, very good restaurant. The room was very spacious, very nice, not cold (I read several comments that it was cold, but in our case. We went on 7th December, the heating was on with a heater in the room and in the restaurant). Did not get a change to get to the Oak restaurant cause its always busy, twice went to Orangery restaurant. the food was delicious. Spa facilities are good
Great location, beautiful greenspace in front of hotel with several walking trails. At end of Cookham high street so lots of excellent restaurants to choose from.
Our room was in new building back from main pub/restaurant so very quiet.
Breakfasts were good and service was friendly.
We stayed in 11 hotels, pubs and B&Bs on our recent trip to England, The Crown at Cookham was one of our best experiences.
Recent stayed for our wedding anniversary and had we known how fantastic the place is, we would have stayed longer. The room was quirky, but fantastically well decorated. The little nuances offered by the hotel / B&B as guest perks were amazing. I won't spoil the surprise by saying what they are, but if you like something different to drink, you will not be disappointed.
For the price we paid, we cannot rate Bel & The Dragon highly enough. The staff were fantastically accommodating given we arrived & checked out early. We sadly only got to experience the food at breakfast, which was beautiful, but next time we will be eating in the restaurant downstairs.
Thanks to all at Bel & The Dragon and hopefully see you soon!!
