England, United Kingdom

An attractive hotel with airy interiors that stands across the lane from the river Stour - Canterbury and Turner Contemporary are close

Sandwich, a Cinque port, is England's best-preserved medieval town. It's tiny, dates to the 12th century, and timber-framed houses are found all over town. The Bell stands opposite the old toll gate, where the river Stour glides past on its way to the sea. You can follow it down to Sandwich Bay past the famous Royal St George's golf course. Back at the hotel revolving doors propel you into an elegant world of golden sofas, smouldering logs and vintage luggage piled up in a corner. Open-plan interiors flow from restaurant to conservatory to bar. All are smart and airy, with blond wood and halogen lighting giving a contemporary feel. Doors open onto a terrace in summer, while brasserie-style food hits the spot. Bedrooms come in different sizes and mix comfort and style in equal measure. The bigger ones with river views are fabulous, but smaller rooms are nicely priced and all have warm colours, sparkling bathrooms, digital radios and WiFi. Canterbury is close, Turner Contemporary in Margate is unmissable, and Broadstairs, a pretty seaside town, is worth a peek.
