“EXCELLENT HOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Stayed here during a visit to Lumiere in Londonderry, ideal location about 10 mins from City, left car in car park and taxied in.
The hotel is well situated on the main A6 route.
The rooms were spotlessly clean as was the whole hotel.The room was large, with a king size bed, excellent nights sleep. all the usual room facilities (apart from fridge) and a nice gesture was 2 towelling robes (unusual to find in hotels of this price bracket)
The breakfast part was very good, no buffet, but a proper waiter service (well done John) and orders taken and delivered in a very short time, good choice on the menu, more than enough to keep you going for the remainder of the day.
The friendly staff, from Daphne in reception to the room maids made this stay enjoyable.
Well worth a stay.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be good.

Although all of Derry was absolutely spectacular with lovely, friendly people........ the Belfry Country Inn is a stop you must stop at if you are hoping to find an intimate Irish experience. Sally at reception was an amazing lady and beautiful soul. All the men and women in the hotel were above excellent in character and service. Such talented owners who put on incredible events in a truly classy environment. I travel worldwide with my hypnotic production and I can tell you this place has it together! Even the chef came to say hello and thanked us for our kind review of their unique and fresh meals.... Yes, we will be back and I can tell you if you are looking to be married then stop at the Belfry Country Inn and you will not be disappointed! How often do you get a kiss goodbye....

Room Tip: Get married and get the best room...... easy enough!!!

We stayed for 1 night in October 2013. After reading the reviews and limited hotels available in the Derry area we decided to stay at the Belfray Country Inn. It was an excellent choice. The hotel and rooms are updated to modern standards. Rooms well equipped with all amenities for a comfortable stay. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was good. The restaurant menu was good and the food was great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The elevator is new and a bit tricky. Our rooms were booked at the last minute so our rooms were very pricey for the area. The stay was very pleasant and comfortable. We would stay here again.

We've just returned from a stay at The Belfray Inn. I can't find the words to describe the welcome we received. We had a fabulous meal in the restaurant when we arrived. I was really impressed by the waiters wearing gloves when they served us our drinks and meals. I thought it was a special touch.
Our rooms were very comfortable especially the bed. I would highly recommend this hotel and especially the restaurant. We didn't find any faults and look forward to staying at The Belfray again soon.

Do give this hotel a consider if you want a friendly, personal hotel with lots of extras. Food 1st class, hard to beat and lovely staff who genuine make you feel at home. Super value for money and the location just 3 miles outside the city is perfect for that get away of peace. The hotel has recently been refurbished and it shows.

A lovely hotel with friendly staff whose customer care is warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was modern and immaculate with a large comfy bed and contemporary bathroom. We met friends for a meal in the restaurant and the atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. The food was gorgeous and enjoyed by all of us. Thank you especially to Marty who looked after us all evening.
Thank you The Belfray.
