The Bell Hotel Saxmundham has a rich past filled with local folklore and national history. In Georgian times it was the hub of the local community, and a place for travellers – and sometimes Kings – to park their coaches and rest their weary heads. Now, having restored the hotel to its full glory, the hotel invites a new generation of travellers, sightseers, and lovers of local food and drink into the warm and welcoming interior.

The hotel, which was purchased in early 2022 by the Beales Hotel group, boasts a stunning interior with an emphasis on modern design and comfort.

Whichever room you select for your stay, you’ll discover lovingly handcrafted features, bespoke decorations and elegant interior colour patterns that evokes a tangible connection with the local landscape.
