Negative Reviews


A thorough cleaning is needed top to bottom.

Time and again when researching this hotel people will find the same complaint: more time needs to be spent cleaning the guestrooms. Several reviews focus on dusty surfaces and dirty fabric on the furnishings that put a lot of people off from fully enjoying their stay.


Property is in dire need of refurbishment.

When it comes to the decor and furnishings throughout the Bell Hotel, many guests feel the accommodation is in need of a complete overhaul. Guestrooms are really outdated, especially the private bathrooms that are in need of modernisation to match expectations.


Included breakfasts are not the best experience.

Although morning meals don’t cost extra, the overall experience is not the best for many people. Food generally takes a long time to be delivered to the table, and once it is then small portions and overcooked items make many people wish they had gone out instead.
