Bell Hotel Faringdon



Bell Hotel

Market Place, Faringdon, SN7 7HP

The Bell Hotel is an impressive building sat in the centre of the historic town of Faringdon, in the Vale of the White Horse, Oxfordshire.  This site benefits from 9 letting rooms, bar, snug, restaurant and courtyard along with street seating at the front.

We may consider a refurbishment project in partnership with a New Business Partner.

Trading Potential

The Bell Hotel sits in a prominent position in the centre of the historic market town of Faringdon and benefits from all the characteristics of the traditional coaching Inn.  With nine letting rooms, bar, snug, and restaurant with Carvery this site has the all facilities to develop an already solid business.  Investment into the letting rooms and re-development of the menu along marketing through social media channels will aid the future success of this site. 

New Business Partner Profile

The new Business Partners here will ideally have the skills to develop and maintain the hotel element of the business along with assessing the menu requirements for this style of trading and maintain the very traditional ambience.  Good marketing skills and use of social media platforms to promote the letting rooms would be an advantage.
