I stayed here for three nights, in one of their suites. The property is super and has apparently been recently refurbished. The views of the golf course are sublime. The suite itself was extremely comfortable and well appointed. All of these aspects were beyond fault.
What makes it all a little disappointing then is why, when you have a facility which is superb, you still leave a guest feeling a little underwhelmed. It was mostly in the detail. For example: The terrace of my suite was filthy. It hadn't been cleaned for months at least and there was no way I would have used the chairs. They were storing plastic pipes on my terrace, too. And the weeds and litter showed that nobody had paid any attention to the terrace for a very long time. This ruined the experience since the interior of the suite was very well maintained.
On the first day, I wanted to order room service lunch and send a suit in to be pressed, as I had to get away for some other business. There was no room service menu, which only appeared a day later. And they couldn't press a suit for me unless I wanted it back only the following evening. This took them an hour and a half to establish.
And no matter how hotel management may delude themselves, charging huge amounts for wifi is no longer acceptable anywhere in the world! What is did achieve though was to ruin the value perception in my mind, because clearly they would charge for every last thing they thought I would pay for.
The food was uniformly good and I enjoyed every meal I took at The Belfry.
Would I stay again? Possibly not. I think the finer points of their service experience would have to improve first.
