4/5 Good

I liked the quiet setting and the bed was lovely and comfortable with crisp white covers. I was disappointed that there was only pizza for dinner due to a missing chef, albeit very good pizza. It would have been nice to have some salad too. Also, there was no cooked breakfast option, though the fresh fruit and croissant were good (granola and yogurt too). I found the shower controls difficult and confusing and there was a very slightly damp or drainy smell about the room.

Amazing place to stay. We were visiting the Jurassic Coast and found this Inn about 25 minutes drive away. Lovely country setting. The staff were amazing all the time we were there - nothing was too much trouble and they made sure we were looked after. Would definitely recommend staying and eating as the pizza was home cooked and fabulous.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Bell. It's well located in a quiet village just off the A303. The room was immaculately clean, the shower very good, the bed comfortable and we had a nice view over a field to the rear. We had a continental breakfast delivered to our room and it was perfect. The staff were helpful, and there's parking on site. The only thing that I would say is that the walls seem very thin so we could hear toilet flushes, etc - but that's the case with most hotel/B&B accommodation!

A mix up on arrival was quickly resolved but it was a bit unfortunate. Very disappointed with the deluxe double room, shower was in main part of room therefore there was no privacy, only two pillows on bed and access to bed would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues, room felt a bit damp and cold. Breakfast was delivered to room and was ok.
