The Bell Hotel

Sandwich, Kent

River view suite

Superior river view room

An historic riverside retreat in Sandwich with chic interiors - includes breakfast and optional a la carte three-course dinner

For riverside living in the medieval town of Sandwich, the location of this three-star boutique gem could not be more on-point. Not only can you spend hours gazing at the lovely River Stour, but also you’ll be within easy distance of the fascinating White Mill Rural Heritage Centre and the Secret Gardens of Sandwich - the three-and-a-half acre oasis of serenity created by Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens.

Each of the 37 unique rooms and suites assures a seamless mix of the classic and contemporary; think subtle and soothing hues, lavish fabrics, elegant furnishings, and modern-day essentials. While all promise spectacular river and quay views, some score even higher on the design front with roll top baths and four-poster beds.

For foodies, the dining spots add a splash of sparkle. Head to the Old Dining Room for creatively-prepared classic British fare and fine wines, or enjoy more laid-back cuisine at the bar and brasserie - a cool-looking space with honey-coloured oak flooring, Farrow and Ball walls, and an outdoor terrace.
