We stayed here over Easter 2009 and received excellent service from the owners of this small hotel. Nothing ever appeared to be to much trouble for them. The rooms were large, plenty of hanging/storage space and with decent bathrooms with all the usual supply of lotions & potions. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided in the rooms along with a TV and telephone. Substantial main meals are available in the evening if you do not fancy going out. There is a very pleasant bar area with a large choice of 'goodies'
The hotel is very close to the old village and the Chine. The beach is a 5 minute walk away, be warned it is a very steep walk back from the beach so either use the lift or the little land train that runs along the Esplanade up to the Chine.
Breakfasts were large and freshly cooked, only slight 'gripe' is that 8.30am is the opening time for breakfast so if you want a early start it could prove a bit of a problem, but do not let this put you off what for us was a very pleasurable stay at the Belmont
