Positive Reviews

The courtyard is the place to be.

The Bell Inn offers live entertainment outside in the courtyard area. Guests have been pleased with the atmosphere and beverage options, especially of the alcoholic variety.

Located in Town Centre.

Located in the centre of the market town of Moreton-in-March, and just a 5-minute walk from the train station, the Bell Inn is a convenient place to stay whilst visiting the Cotswolds.

Spacious Rooms.

The guestrooms are reportedly surprisingly large. The facility is kept clean, and guests have been pleased with the crisp, fresh bedding and comfortable beds.

Negative Reviews

The Restaurant Could Be Better.

Though the meals served are hearty and substantial, the service is not worth it to most guests. The food itself might be served cold or otherwise less-than-palatable. The staff seem to be undertrained. Many guests have complained that there were no server

Overpriced rooms.

While the rooms are spacious and clean, you can expect to pay a pretty price for it. Many guests have thought that what you receive is not worth what you pay for it.

Strange smells.

Some guests report that you may encounter an odour in the guestrooms. Guest reviews indicate that the smell may result from mildew or mould
