They provide their guests with comfortable duvets, linens, Noble Isle toiletries, soft robes and cookies on arrival (double points for cookies!).
The Old Bell Hotel takes a modern approach to historical British charm. It’s actually England’s oldest hotel! A member of staff explained to us that the hotel’s initial purpose was to provide a place for monks to stay, during their pilgrimages to the abbey. Every part of the venue is full of charm, character, and warmth.
As part of a Grade I listed building, the hotel is next to a 12th Century abbey. Our hotel room felt a bit like a fairytale.
Malmesbury is a peaceful town situated on the edge of the Cotswolds which is quite a contrast to the over-touristed villages. Malmesbury was a pleasant break from the hustle and bustle of tour buses.
With three lounges in total, you will be able to find many places to relax with a book, a pastry, cuppa tea or a board game. This is a plus, as despite it being Bank Holiday weekend we were always able to find a peaceful spot to relax. The staff and service were extremely friendly and we felt very at home.
The experience doesn’t end there as the following day we were greeted with a great spread and presentation in the dining room for breakfast.
