Sandwich is a real gem. One of the best-preserved medieval towns in England, it is a charming little place, its fascinating nooks and crannies easily explored on foot. At its heart, beside the River Stour, is the Bell Hotel which has great-value rooms and superb local food. Perfect for a weekend.

Recommended place to stay: Bell Hotel Sandwich

Bell Hotel Sandwich says

Situated in the heart of historic Sandwich, we have built our reputation for excellence amongst visitors and locals alike.

  • Medieval town
  • Stylish hotel
  • Great value

Carefully restored and refurbished, the Bell Hotel Sandwich was built in the 19th Century but now has a chic, modern feel. It’s a stylish, comfortable and beautiful place whether you are staying with us or simply enjoying the restaurant or bars.

Our 37 rooms are light and airy and many have four poster beds and roll-top baths. Some have spectacular views of the estuary.

Throughout The Bell, our emphasis is on great hospitality and that includes our passion for serving fresh, seasonal and local food. The Old Dining Room restaurant competes with the best in Kent, whilst the Brasserie has a more casual vibe with a great terrace, perfect for long, lazy lunches when the sun shines.

We have visitors from all round the globe, many of them repeat guests. This, together with earning accolades in the Michelin Guide and the Good Hotel Guide, is testament to our success in achieving high standards.

One of the Cinque Ports, Sandwich itself is reckoned to be the most complete medieval town in England. In fact, Sandwich was the first in England to have a conservation order placed on the entire town, and it has more listed buildings per acre than anywhere else in the country.
