Now Quite Tired

25 years ago The Bell was an extremely comfortable hostelry, with above average amenities and food. Unfortunately, not much seems to have changed since then. Room was clean and tidy, basic facilities ... more

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts. The Bell Hotel is an 18th century building and modernising it is something that the we don't want to do. The rooms are kept clean and tidy, equipped with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay, and as you say the staff are friendly and helpful, but the building is in keeping with the period it was designed. Although not to everybody's taste, a lot do like the different, traditional feel it has compared to a lot of the modern buildings that just all seem to be very much the same. There may be better value accommodation in Driffield, but none have to offer what we have here at The Bell. Again, thank you, and have a great day.

Sleeping with a steam train

We got let down by another hotel in the town so found this place in a bit of an emergency. Paid £98 a room and was told by the manager they always charge that. After we had paid we found the same ro... more

Hi, Our price for a double room bed and breakfast when you book direct with the hotel is £98. The price of £68 you found on a third party site was probably a room only price for a single occupancy stay, I am sorry that you felt ripped off but that isn't comparative to what you booked. You were actually also given a free upgrade. We have never had a problem with noise such as you describe in room 22, we will investigate this as there may be a problem, the same with the toilet, if problems aren't reported it often takes longer to discover them. We do serve breakfast until 9.30am on a Sunday morning, one main reason for this is that we have a very busy Sunday lunch trade and we need to get the dining room cleared away from breakfast and set up ready to start serving Sunday lunch at 12.00. I hope that you found some positives in your stay and, if you were in the area again would consider coming back to stay with us. Kind regards Amy Smith General Manager

amyrichardson, General Manager at BEST WESTERN The Bell In Driffield, responded to this review
Hi, Just to clarify, the hotel is a member of Best Western. Best Western run a membership scheme for a group of independently owed and operated hotels, it is a marketing blanket not a chain. The young girl you talk about is actually myself, in an afternoon we do cover the reception and bar with 1 staff member as the custom that we get in at this time doesn't warrant any more (except at busy times which are accommodated). It has always worked and doesn't feel stretched, I would defiantly not say that I was 'running' from the bar to reception. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts, there is a lot that you obviously weren't very happy with and I'm sorry that your stay didn't meet your expectations, however I hope that there were some positives in there somewhere.
