Gorgeous setting - lovely rooms
A gorgeous setting and lovely rooms and warm friendly staff. Some upgrade to luxury comfort pillow top beds. The restaurant superb, but suggest a few more healthy options, not as many spices/sauces and vegetarian dishes would be nice to have a choice. Would also love to use the pool, but is often cold, suggest some heating and a cover in winter.
Always want to return x

Worth every dollar
We experienced the best of service and beautiful surrounds! Our studio apartment was just wonderful, and our evening meal was superb - we enjoyed our dessert and coffee in the lounge area - just to finish it off! The breakfast (although advertised as "continental" ) was also delicious. We didn't need to add to it - home made everything - and service with a smile and professionalism. Worth every dollar. Viv

Delightful place to spend a weekend
Delightful place to spend a weekend. bungalow and surroundings were fabulous. Food was good , especially breakfast on the balcony. We love the position as it is close to the wonderful Maitland Bay and Kilcare beaches. Hopefully we'll be back soon.

Didn't want to leave
We have just arrived home and didn't want to leave you all. The accommodation was immaculate so restful and perfect. The restaurant Manfredi was perfect beautiful food and wonderful service even though you were full. Then to top it off breakfast oh how I love to be spoilt. We will certainly return and send our friends. Not forgetting the gardens. Thank you Jan and John

Our Bells Experience – The Wow Factor!
Our Bells Experience – The Wow Factor!
Our two night stay at Bells was a pleasure, we wish it had been longer. All your personnel greeted us with a smile, our suite was immaculate, and it’s seclusion was greatly appreciated. We highly commend the professionalism in the restaurant, backed up by obviously the very high standard of the chef. Breakfast on the veranda is a wonderful memory, with the view of the immaculately kept gardens which we later enjoyed exploring. Management should be complemented on maintaining the highest possible level of attention to detail. We are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to return to Bells to enjoy a future visit.
Kind regards, Gai

Dear Kitty and all the staff at Bells, Thank you for hosting such a wonderful wedding for Louise and Rhys last Friday. It was a magical day and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The food was amazing and someone said that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Bells is a superb venue and as soon as Louise and Rhys visited, they were smitten and the choice was made. We were certainly not disappointed when we arrived before the wedding and can see why you are so busy with so many weddings, all in their own unique style.
Many thanks for helping to organise a wonderful day.
Kind regards, Jane

My thanks to Bells
Dear Karina and Brian,
I am writing to acknowledge and thank you for the extraordinary business that you run. Myself and all of my guests had the most wonderful experience last weekend for my 50th on the Saturday night and the following Sunday night. The standard of the accommodation and the fact that not a single beat was missed was outstanding. Kristy has been the most helpful and engaging event 'organiser'/manager I have ever worked with. I have no words that really do express the enormity of my thanks to Kristy. Her trust in the fact that I would do everything that I said I would when I didn't have a moment to put it in writing is fantastic. She did not miss one single beat. And neither did the team that looked after us on both Saturday at the function and overall on Sunday. You have a brilliant team. All trained to an extremely high standard. We also appreciate the extraordinary effort that went into the Bell Shakespeare production. It was huge. We also loved it! I am still receiving wonderful thank yous and comments from all of my friends and family that attended. I have no doubt that you will have many guests returning from last weekend; including myself.

Loved the venue
Hi Team Bells!
I just wanted to pop you a quick note and say thank you very much for all your support over the last few days. The launch was a great success, and the media just loved the venue – as did all of us! Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the team. We really felt you all went out of your way to make sure our guests were comfortable and it was greatly appreciated.
Thanks again and have a lovely weekend, Laura

Exceeded our expectations
Emma & I would like to pass on our sincerest thanks and gratitude for having us stay on the weekend. We were looking forward to this trip for so many weeks and we both can't believe how much it exceeded our expectations. To spend time together away from the routine of having young kids is a treat enough, but to be housed in such luxurious and personable surroundings made this weekend so memorable for us. I have been so fortunate to experience some wonderful properties over my many years. Bells not only stood out from the pack in regards to the quality of the facility, but more importantly the warmth, professionalism and care of the staff running it. From the moment Kane collected us from the ferry terminal, to checking in, enjoying a remarkable dinner at Manfredi at Bells, to checking out - every touch point with your staff was absolutely delightful. Emma & I both commented that the service at Manfredi at Bells was a particular highlight, with the team gliding around the dining room personally looking after each and every guest - no mean feat given the dining room was at full capacity.
Thank you for making our stay truly memorable. Best Regards Anthony.
