“Wow!!!!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had our wedding reception here on the 7/8/14 and to say we were pleased would not cut it. The food, service, and attention to detail was 2nd to none... I'd highly recommend the belfray country inn to anyone, an I'd be fussy!... Brian you are amazing you made our day so special an personal, Geraldine the wedding planner had every little request covered an done with such ease, and daphne on reception was with us right through from booking up until the day after.... Top quality hotel with top quality staff ... I could keep going... Amazing!!!! Thank you all if I could give higher than a 5 I would, cnt wait for another wee night there xxx

Just in the process of checking out of this wonderful hotel. Couldn't rate in high enough. Decor very up to date spotless and pleasant. Staff couldn't do enough for you without being over the top and false. Special mention to our special waiter Chris and Marty the bar man who made our stay so welcome. Bedrooms light comfortable and again very clean bathrooms modern and again very clean. We had a meal in the restaurant which was tasteful well presented and melt in your mouth. All I can say is if you want good affordable accommodation while visiting the maiden city and surrounding areas the Belfray is the one to use. Thanks guys we will be back. Xxx

My daughter and I had a business meeting and it was the Belfray that was choosen to meet at. We met with our boss and although had not booked we were welcomed immediately by friendly staff. We were seated and handed menus. An excellent choice of meals were available and even though the boss was coeliac intolerant they catered no problem for this. We had an excellent 3 course meal at a good keen price. Staff were professional and helpful and genuine in their dealings with us. We then sat down to our meeting and were politely asked if we would like somewhere more private. We were taken to a small alcove to continue our discussion and were offered tea/coffee. Staff were available at all times when we needed something but kept a discrete distance. My boss had an excellent room and was very delighted with it. She would definately stay again and I hope to return again when passing. Food was fantastic prices keen and atmosphere and staff brilliant

The accommodation in this hotel was excellent - very clean, modern bathroom and comfortable beds. The staff are very helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. There is a quirky lift which is great when you have a lot of luggage to take upstairs, and the food in the restaurant is exceptionally good - absolutely first class. I wish I could give the hotel 5/5 but unfortunately during our three night stay, two nights were spoilt by rowdy wedding guests who stood right outside (or that's how it sounded) our bedroom window, shouting, singing and swearing until about 3.00am. The hotel is obviously very popular for weddings, but it needs to address how it manages both wedding guests and hotel guests in the same space. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel - this might be quieter. I would only stay here again if I had a different room in a different part of the hotel, which is a shame as it is a brilliant place in so many ways.

Room Tip: Stay away from the front of the hotel near the wedding venue.

Dear LJaneUK
As a To Contributor on Tripadvisor i very much welcome your review and thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I am pleased to hear that on the whole you enjoyed your stay with us and that the team made you feel welcome.
We do indeed have a policy for accommodating wedding guests and hotel guests but unfortunately if guests book on 3rd party booking sites we have no way of identifying if they are attending a wedding or not and this is what happened on this occasion. I will endeavour to tighten up on this procedure to help ensure there is no repeat of what happened on your stay and again thank you for your sincere review.
With best regards
Rodney

Dear Debramcc
Thank you for taking the time to review us again especially on your son's wedding day. All the team at the Belfray try hard to make weddings as special as possible delivering personal customer service and good quality food and i would agree with you that the staff do work hard in delivering this. I am pleased to hear that you had booked our Gala Show and that everyone enjoyed it. Finally thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you back.
With best regards
