Why We Love This Hotel

  • Parts of the property date back to the 1130s. This makes The Olde Bell possibly the oldest inn in the UK, and among the oldest in the world. Its sanctus bell, which signalled to the monks that an important visitor had arrived, still hangs over the door.
  • The restaurant serves dishes made with produce grown in the inn's own kitchen garden.
  • Superior rooms are in the historic inn building or in the Malt House. Deluxe rooms are larger and are set within the Brick Barn. Luxury rooms in the Main Inn or Malt House and each have a claw-foot bath tub.
  • The inn's famous former guests include Winston Churchill, Dwight D Eisenhower, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Cary Grant.
  • The inn is in the picturesque village of Hurley, close to the River Thames—"there isn’t a prettier village on this graceful stretch of the Thames," says The Times.
  • You can follow the riverside path to Marlow, a charming town known for its high-end restaurants and celebrity residents.

Evening meal. We were looking forward to this as we had checked the menu online and the choice was good. We were given this menu and had made our choice only to find that it was taken away from us and replaced with the lunch menu. We were told that this menu would replace the dinner menu. The choices on this menu were fewer, less interesting and more expensive! There was nothing that I wanted to eat so we left and ate elsewhere so missed out on our 20% off the bill which was included in our Travelzoo offer. We then discovered that the lady on the next table had ordered a burger from the lunch menu but had been given the burger from the dinner menu which had cheese and bacon added which she did not want.

Lovely old hotel. Nice ambience and Comfortable but a bit cold in the dining room. The food was good and the breakfast was excellent, however, of the 5 starters for dinner, 3 were not available. We were in lovely room 1, but there was a continuous droning noise until late in the evening and early in the morning. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bar was a bit lacking in its service and there was no whiskey as it was being used at another event. There were no crisps or peanuts available either, a small point but disappointing nevertheless . The gardens are lovely and the staff are friendly. Overall a nice break and good value for money.

Enjoyed the stay . Room very good. Eat in restaurant on first night, food very good. Breakfast first morning fine but second morning, poor. Lack of staff, tables not cleared or re-laid. Had to keep asking for replenishment of buffet, both hot and cold

The restaurant for breakfast was chaotic on the first morning with no explanation of how things worked ,seemed understaffed and breakfast items were not replenished when running low which resulted in you having breakfast in stages. 2nd morning was much better. Evening meal on the 1st night was very nice meals were well cooked and piping hot and the service was great, 2nd night was a let down as the meal my wife had was served with instant mashed potatoes and watery mashed sweed ! Not the sort of thing you would expect from this class of restaurant. The waiter did apologise, change the meal and not charge us which was very appreciated, but again the service was very underwhelming and chaotic. There didn't seem to be enough staff in the restaurant and the chap serving us appeared to be under a lot of pressure.

Would definitely revisit, however our roo. Was lovely, massive bed, but the shower was terrible, very low pressure and it was a disabled shower, no space whatsoever, not sure how someone disabled would manage in such a tight space? Also the room needed a mirror, somewhere for wife to do her hair and makeup. Breakfast was nice, but on first morning. Very disjointed, had to wait quite a while for stuff to be replenished, no scrambled egg, sausages or hash browns, drinks are expensive.

It was okay overall however I feel the place is resting on it's laurels and is a bit tired. Some staff okay others a bit disinterested room was billed as deluxe but more standard in my opinion little touches missing initial supply of tea etc a bit stingy although request for more was met well enough
