Essential Information

Welcome to Bell Tower Inn!

Here are some additional details about our venue. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact our reception staff by

calling 03 5334 1600 or


Cooking and Dining in Rooms:

We provide a microwave, mini fridge, toaster, kettle and tea/coffee making facilities.

We do not provide crockery or cutlery (aside from teaspoons, coffee cups and a butter knife). Should you require some you can request cutlery and crockery at Reception (open 8am - 6pm Mon - Sat, 8am - 1pm Sunday) or Fat Chef restaurant (open 5pm - 9pm 7 days a week).

We do not permit cooking in the rooms (aside from use of the microwave). There is a family barbecue available for use at no cost in one of our courtyards should you want to use it for cooking.


Our property is set back from the main road and all of our rooms have excellent sound insulation, so traffic noise is rarely an issue. If you are particularly sensitive to noise, you can request a room at the rear of the property and we will do our best to provide one for you (subject to availability).

We take your rest and relaxation seriously at Bell Tower Inn and we have a strict no noise after 9pm policy. If another guest is not following the policy please call 03 5334 1600 and let our night manager know so they can intervene on your behalf. Any guest who does not comply with the policy runs the risk of being asked to vacate their room to allow for the comfort of other guests.


Free parking is located just outside your room with one space. However if you have a second vehicle please see reception for other parking options. We also have plenty of room for trailers, trucks and coaches.


We have a limited number of Pet Friendly rooms available for an extra $25 fee. Please contact reception to check the availability when reserving your room.

Bringing a pet to a room not designated pet friendly will incur a hefty cleaning fee. Please see below for more details on our pet friendly policy.

Pet Friendly Policy:

Pets are required to be house trained and if they soil the room an additional cleaning fee will be charged. When your pet makes a mess on the grounds, you are required to clean up after them immediately.

Dogs must be on a leash when outside of your room and are not permitted to enter another guest's room. A map to a nearby off-lead dog park can be provided on check in.

Your pet must be quiet and well behaved. Should your pet cause a disturbance to other guests you may be asked to leave or house your pet elsewhere.

This policy refers to one pet only. Should you have multiple pets, please check with reception when booking whether we can accommodate your needs. For example, we may be able to accommodate 2 small pets but can not accommodate 3 large dogs.

Pets can not be left unattended in the rooms for more than one hour at a time and house keeping will not be able to enter the room for room service if your pet is inside.

We thank you for your understanding and hope you and your pet have an enjoyable time at Bell Tower Inn.
