wish list


The Bell Hotel is very proud of its historic trading history in the beautiful town of Clare, a gateway to all that wonderful Suffolk has to offer. Its owners have taken The Bell's traditional coaching inn's reputation and turned it into a full-blown, four-star, 'Destination of Choice'.

The Challenge

With the intention to make The Bell one of the finest accommodation, functions and fine dining experiences in the region, they commissioned renowned designers Tibbatts Abel to help deliver the mission.

Overhauling the bar and lounge areas and introducing a new restaurant area under the brand 'Latitude 52', the decor needed to complement the hotel's history, while at the same time offering a modern twist.

Tibbatts Abel, who have worked on a number of projects with Chantelle Lighting in the past, knew just who to commission for The Bell Hotel project.

The Solution

Chantelle Lighting offered a range of retro brass, bronze, and industrial fittings to meet the brief for the hotel's dining areas.

A mix of retro brass and bronze wall light with glass globes and retro bronze up and down globe wall lights adorned walls, while feature lighting was made up of multi-drop pendant with various finishes and retro brass and bronze globe pendants.

The retro lighting was complemented by a range of industrial fittings, including an industrial ring chandelier with multi bronze spray bulb drops, four industrial bronze spray ring chandeliers, eight industrial bronze wall lights with hanging metal shades and 43 bronze spray directional spotlights.

The additional ambience was created with external lighting, including seven bronze external bulkheads and 12 external spike lights.

The Result

The result of the project was an ambience fitting of The Bell Hotel's needs and the perfect, intimate dining venue for its clientele.
