    Extra special service for a birthday trip
    Just wanted to thank all of the staff who helped throughout our trip at both The hotel and golf club. Amazing dinner at the Ryder grill served by Alex. Golf range baby friendly. Pool baby friendly. Brilliant breakfast. Staff made sure we had a room with a bath and cot for the little one, with an amazing view of the course. Followed by a second day at the golf club, the mini bus driver drove myself and my son down to the first hole to watch his daddy tee off and then drove us back to the club house, while Michael and Joe helped look after our belongings and arranged all of this for us, extra special service!

    The Belfry - great place for informal work meetings
    I use The Belfry on a regular basis to met with colleagues. It's central to where we all live and work and offers unrivalled facilities for those more informal meetings you sometimes have with colleagues and customers. What sets this place apart, is the attentive nature of the people who work there. They go out of their way to make your time there as great as possible. Special thanks to Michelle, Alyzon and Christina who have been excellent on m ore than one occasion.

    Fire & Ice experience
    Take yourself and your cozzie - aaaaaand relax! Had a fantastic time with friends - Sally acknowledged us by the pool and said bear with me while I prepare for you she then fetched us, we had lovely feet baths whilst Sally explained the experience and to do as little or as much as we wanted. We all felt very relaxed and put at our ease. Really friendly and great time with the ooohs and aaahs and occasional screams from the cold water. We also took in the afternoon tea. A really lovely time to celebrate a special birthday.

    Golfing oddessey
    We enjoyed two great rounds of golf - day 1 on the PGA National and day 2 on the Derby. The National is touted as a links course but there is a fair bit of parkland about it. Long irons into the greens and well protected by bunkers. The Derby requires mid to short irons into greens and a parkland course. Greens are really good on the Derby and quite good on the National. Golf staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Especially the starters and courtesy drivers. Shop staff were good also and bar staff were OK. The complex is huge with so many accommodation rooms (no wonder they've hosted the Ryder Cup). Good additional facilities. Overall, we'd come back again!

    Cocktails
    After a day at The Belfry's Spa, checked in with the Hubs to see how his back us doing, and will he be able to drive home? Turns out it's fine, so I'm here in the Brabazon Bar watching Ali and Alyson create some marvellous cocktails for me. One more of these marvellous sleepy juices, and I'll miss the boring two hour drive and wake up as we pull up back in London. Happy Friday 🍹

    Lovely overnight birthday treat.
    Just had a lovely one night stay at The Belfry hotel for my wife as a birthday treat. We have never stayed over here before. The hotel itself is huge and it was like a bit of a maze to find our room, but the room itself was beautiful, roomy, well stocked, huge comfy bed and balcony. We ate in The Ryder grill which was quite busy and noisy which made it a little less intimate, however the staff were very hard working and attentive. One young lady worthy of mention was Jess, who was so professional and efficient and really looked after us throughout the meal. She even arranged a treat after our meal for my wife making the experience much better. The Brabazon bar was also busy with a live perfomer on, but Michelle sorted seats out for us very soon after we arrived, which we very much appreciated. Breakfast was also good, again, the restaurant was busy but the food was hot, plentyful, and a varied choice. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for a night at the belfry playing the PGA and the Brabazon on different days. Check in was ok though total confusion on evening meal booking. We were told one time by Your Golf Travel, reception told us a different time, and when we got to dinner, we were told we were late and it was a totally different time! The hotel is large and easy to get lost. The rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast very good. Even though lots of golfers, mixed bunch of people including hen parties, couples, spa weekenders etc. told before that it was carry on bags only on the courses so were ready for that. Both courses wet and yes, ball plugged a lot and sometimes lost even on fairways. But with the amount of rain it is the same anywhere else. Just because they are world famous does not mean they have different weather. PGA National was good, but hairy fairways but again, difficult to cut, greens excellent t. Brabazon a different league. Much more manicured and fast greens. Played hard but so enjoyable. Great range and facilities. Nice staff everywhere. Enjoy

Came with a group of 12 to stay at the hotel and play the Derby and Brabazon golf courses

On arriving with no notice or prior warning we were told that both courses were carry only.
We didn’t have carry bags. They had run out of hire bags. 4 of our party dropped out (two with medical conditions meaning them unable to carry a golf bag

3 of us had to rush to American golf and spend £90 on a carry golf bag

The Derby Course
We were told preferred lies in rough and fairway
In my opinion the course should have been closed
Twice water came over my shoes
Plugging in fairway
Course moving hadn’t happened due to water logging. Had characteristics of a cow field

The Brabazon Course
Again preferred lies in rough and fairway
We played in wind and rain
Enjoyable course but questionable if it should have been open.
Balls plugging in fairway
Carry bags only
4 off our party decided to give up after talking to the starter

Hotel
Rooms were nice and comfortable
A picture in my room had a cracked glass
Food and drink was nice

Overall - I appreciate the golf club and hotel cannot influence the weather and a discounted package in April will be less enjoyable than one in high summer BUT

(1) they could have told us to bring carry on bags or have a bigger stock to hire
(2) they could have told those who can’t carry bags that the course gets waterlogged and it might not be golf course for them
(3) they could have a customer service team that cares
(4) they could make decisions to close the course if waterlogged

Unless these get sorted out AVOID

Just came back from playing the PGA course and the Brabazon. Absolutely awful conditions on both courses, especially the PGA course. Like other reviews recently on here, agree with everything that has been said, courses were unplayable due to waterlogging. We travelled from Newcastle and at no point were we informed that there were no buggies or trolleys on until we got to the Pro shop, so we never had any carry bags and they had the audacity to charge us £5 for a stand carry bag. Absolutely disgraceful. The Belfry obviously puts money over customer satisfaction. Spoilt what should have been an enjoyable trip with friends due to their lack of professionalism and integrity.

Absolute disgrace pga course should be closed as like a bog.
Lost plugged balls on every hole and preferred lies a joke in 6 inch long grass.
Should have played in wellies as nearly had my shoes pulled off in the bogs.
Played at my local at the weekend and in perfect condition and nocked the spots off the Belfry!!

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with the fire & ice experience at the Belfry that included 2 treatments each and afternoon tea. It was a fabulous day that we thoroughly enjoyed. The spa and pool facilities were very clean, the staff were all accommodating and the treatments we had rate among the best we’ve had. My therapist (Kelsey) did an amazing massage and facial and is one of the reasons I’m rating the day as five stars. We hope to be back again at some point.

Played there with a group of 10 over 3/4th March on the Derby/PGA National courses. When we got there we were advised It was carry bags only & once on the course I could see why - the course was saturated & should have been closed. I've never played in such conditions & good golfers in our group were losing balls one after another as they plugged in fairways. I appreciate its a tough call closing the course, but to have visitors spend 2 days 'wading' down fairways, with no follow up offer of discount or compensation was poor. Staff were friendly, but overall I felt the Belfry were putting money over customer satisfaction, given the golfing conditions.

Visited today for a spa day which included a 60 minute treatment, fire and ice experience and afternoon tea. Everywhere was clean and staff were all welcoming and attentive. Big shout out to Sian for getting all the knots out of my back and shoulders - best massage I’ve had in ages!
