    The staff were well trained and efficient, whilst remaining polite and friendly. The room was equipped nicely, cleanliness excellent. The name Ye Olde Bell and Spa is misleading as they are operated as two completely separate entities. Staying at the hotel allows you no access to the spa, I was offered two hours entry for £35 per person. Very disappointing.
