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 functional, but the whole place seems in need of a refresh / refurbishment. Staff were great, friendly and helpful, but they deserve to be working in a brighter more modern environment. There are better value accommodations in Driffield. less

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.
