Great place!! Overall 5  Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Celeste and Steven, thank you very much for your hospitality. We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast was spectacular. And, of course, your company was highly enjoyable. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Home away from home Overall 5  Monday, April 30, 2018

What a wonderful surprise! Stopping unexpectedly in the area for work and I am so pleased to have found Steven and Celeste's place. Their place exceeded all my expectations: large, comfortable room that was equipped with a desk as well as coffee, tea, water, and a massive bath! They were great hosts too - attentive but ever respectful and provided me with the most delicious breakfast.

Comfortable and Lovely!  Overall 5   Tuesday, March 20, 2018

I stayed at the Bell Tower B&B last Parent's Weekend at Choate, and it was perfect! I felt right at home, and the breakfasts were delicious! I hope to stay there every chance I get when I visit my son at school!

Everything We Wanted Overall 5  Sunday, February 11, 2018

Bell Tower is one of the most charming, comfortable, and convenient B&B's we've ever found. Celeste and Steven were wonderful hosts, and they made us feel at home throughout our short stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

Great experience   Overall 5  Sunday, December 3, 2017

We had a great experience staying at Bell Tower B&B. Celeste and Steven made us feel at home. They were the nicest hosts! The breakfast was most delicious; I will have to ask for recipes next time we visit them. Cheers!

First time guests   Overall 5   Monday, September 4, 2017

This was our first time staying at the Bell Tower. We had an amazing experience and look forward to coming back. The owners were both friendly and helpful while still maintaining our privacy. My daughter has special diet restrictions and they went out of the way to accommodate her. She was in heaven! The breakfasts were delicious and the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it in the morning! Little touches like a nighttime snack (including one for my daughter), chocolates outside our room, and the newspaper available at breakfast made the stay that much better. We loved the decor with many unique discoveries throughout the house. Perfect place for parents of Choate students, romantic getaways, or a good home base for discovering Connecticut and surrounding areas. Highly recommend!!

Great place to stay, cozy, 

modern amenities, wonderful owners Overall 5  Tuesday, August 8, 2017

I booked the Bell Tower for a group of my in-laws who were visiting for the first time from out of the country for several days. The owners, Celeste and Steven, were amazingly accommodating to our group. They were extremely flexible with our travel confusion and arrival times. They were always quick to reply to my phone calls and emails. The house itself is beautiful and surprisingly larger than it looks from the outside due to an extension that creates a gorgeous sitting room that opens on to the back yard and patio. The bedrooms and bathroom were all very comfortable, modern, and perfectly clean. The morning breakfasts were really tasty and far more than I expected (an actual full selection of homemade dishes, not the usual quicky continental breakfast you get elsewhere). The house is on a quiet, residential street directly across from a private school campus. It's also a really short walk to the center of town where there are a bunch of restaurants, pubs, and shops. If you're not familiar with the region, the town is a 20min drive from New Haven and about the same to Hartford (and a stop on Amtrak) so it's a really easy jaunt to the major schools and businesses in the state. I honestly can't recommend the Bell Tower enough to anyone traveling in Connecticut.

excellent b and b   Overall 5  Monday, August 7, 2017

The hosts accommodate one group or couple or individual a night. The accommodations are very comfortable and the hosts are very helpful in every way -- and they make a great breakfast. Location: short walk to restaurants in Wallingford. Highly recommended.

Cozy and Relaxing Getaway  Overall 5  Tuesday, July 18, 2017

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Bell Tower B&B. Celeste and Steven were very gracious hosts and made us feel at home. We enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast outside that thoughtfully accommodated our dietary needs. If we were to go back to the area, we would definitely stay at the Bell Tower B&B again!

Choate parents feel like it is 

your home away from home!   Overall 5  Monday, May 29, 2017

Love the Bell Tower. Steve and Celeste are amazing hosts and their warmth and kindness is second to none. The breakfast is always lovely with sterling silver , homemade leek tarts, yummy goat cheese quiches and on graduation morning Mimosas and Bloody Mary's , fresh fruit lox bagels to send us to see the 2017 class off to the real world ! A real gem. Steve is a hiking enthusiast and he and my husband enjoyed an afternoon together on an impromptus mid winter cross country skiing. My husband enjoyed this immensely . See you in the Fall!

Delightful B&B  Overall 5  Wednesday, April 26, 2017

It is my second time staying at The Bell Tower B&B and all I can say is that it is absolutely perfect and extremely recommendable. The house is delightful, the pink room is a dream, and Steven and Celeste are kind, welcoming and a pleasure to be with. If one is lucky enough to taste Celeste's delicious cooking, you're in for a wonderful surprise! Do try The Bell Tower in Wallingford CT! Lorena from Madrid, Spain

Home away from home  Overall 5  Saturday, November 12, 2016

Celeste and Steven are wonderful hosts. I felt like home guests more than a hotel guests. The room is totally comfortable. Their newly fitted high tech bathroom is not seen in any hotel in wallingford area. I can't thank them more for Such a lovely stay. We want more places like Bell Tower on earth.

Our Home Away From Home  Overall 5  Saturday, November 12, 2016

My husband and I stayed with Steve and Celeste over Parents Weekend and couldn't be more happy with our stay! It was a refuge from the craziness of the weekend. It felt like we were staying with our favorite "Aunt and Uncle" as they took such good care of us! The rooms are charming and beautifully decorated, bed extremely comfortable and the overall house a lovely retreat for anyone seeking the comforts of home. The best part was the breakfast in the morning. Served on beautiful china, a delicious and well-balanced home cooked breakfast (along with the paper and good strong coffee) was the perfect way to start our day. Can't wait to visit our daughter and just as excited to stay with Celeste and Steve at Bell Tower!
