this is a nice place and good food, what blows me away reading back into reviews is that people complain about train noises. get real, this is part of the deal, trains a few hundred feet away is part of the bargain and reason to be there. I find it great to hear the moan of a train at any... More

We stayed in the Clark Cabin in late December/Early January. Built in 1911, the cabins are Arts & Crafts style, very clean and spacious. There are three bedrooms with plenty of light. We appreciated the lack of modern accouterments like a TV or a phone, though there is a fridge and a microwave. There isn't a lot to do in... More

I arrived at the Belton around 6:15 p.m. on a Saturday. It did not start out well as they were having a wedding reception and it was crowded. So much so there was no parking. I drove down the hill and there was none at the restaurant so I went across the street and though it is a large area,... More

An old railway hotel, refurbished and therefore unusual. It was clean and comfortable and sufficiently remote to get a feel of it's origins. Near to the park entrance. But no food, although there are a couple of local places within walking distance. The rooms were basic and noisy, and oddly there was a glass panel above the bathroom door. It's... More

I stayed at this hotel during a short vacation to Glacier National Park in August. Proximity to the park was very important to me as I wasn't able to drive on this trip, however, the other lodging within the park were unaffordable for me, plus the reviews for Belton were great, so I booked with them. The room was very... More

We stayed in September and were enchanted with the beautiful property and historically renovated room. Friendly staff, comfortable and cozy lobby and the fine dining restaurant (open for dinner only) was really some of the best food we had on our entire trip.

Very nice setting and great location. Staff is friendly and helpful. But--it is a historical restoration and history is not always comfortable. No air conditioning, no overhead fans, transoms were not part of the restoration - meaning on a warm summer day - it's hot!. We were provided a dinky little fan that did not help much. Ceiling fans and... More

We stayed on September 30 and were impressed as we viewed the historic hotel and were excited about staying there. The entry lobby is decorated nicely and had a fire which was welcome because of the damp. However, the room was small and had a double bed, a small desk, a metal chair (ice cream store style), and a tree... More

Stayed there for the Autumn Amore weekend the last weekend of September. It was an unbelievable deal and a great way to spend our anniversary weekend. The fOod in the restaurant was excellent. We went to the tap room prior to dinner both nights and the two bartenders were very friendly. The wait staff both nights were also friendly and... More

By far, the most authentic accommodation we stayed in and reminiscent of a bygone age. In fact, if you dine on the patio of the restaurant, you'll see the staff race out to form a line and wave at the train as it pulls into the railway station opposite! Our room was on the first floor and the railway station/roadside... More
