The Belmont Hotel was a convenient place to stay overnight. The B&B deal was not the cheapest option in the city and our room was definitely not what we had been looking forward to after a system mix-up meant that we ended up double-booked and were moved at short notice to a small double room, which was clean and okay for such a short stay. We would definitely not stay longer than one night in such a small room however and although we were told that it was a refurbished room we wondered if it was regularly used or if we ended up in it only because of the booking system error. Certainly the room number was not on the signage directing guests to the rooms!
We've rated the Belmont average rather than poor mainly due to the staff being helpful and friendly. In the room there was the usual hairdryer-in-the-desk-drawer but it was close to a mirror (not always the case!) and the bathroom mirror was great for putting on make-up. Nice toiletries were provided. The bed was incredibly soft and there were more cushions and pillows than we needed - why are hotels so obsessed with cushions?
We didn't take any meals other than breakfast in the hotel but it was good with plenty to choose from, including the traditional cooked favourites.
The other reason we rated the Belmont Hotel as average and not poor is because of the location - very close to the train station and city centre restaurants but off the main road so quite quiet.
Overall, this is an okay place to stay as long as the visit is a short one. We probably won't try it again though.
