“Lovely venue, terrific location, an "ahhhhh" place at the beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We loved our visit to the Bellmoor Inn, and are going to make it "our place!" The common areas are lovely, the rooms well appointed (and hurray for that bayberry soap!!), the breakfasts were just yummy. We especially enjoyed the location, which is just steps from the ocean and the shops and restaurants on Rehoboth Avenue! And when it was time to retire, our room was nice and quiet. Perfect place! :)

My lovely wife & I have been guest of the Bellmoor for the past 10yrs & we will continue to stay here for many years to come. The accommodations are always clean & well maintained, as well the gardens..The spa facility and staff are excellent..Breakfast is always a delight with many fresh options to choose from...the Inns staff is always excellent & accommodating...If i could change one or two things it would be to upgrade the adult pool area, which is worn and dated, it needs a complete over haul & a more welcoming appearance..definitely needs professional help along with that my wish list would be to somehow incorporate the lovely background music which is played inside the facility added to the garden area creating a wonderful experience both inside & out....very low volume of course..Overall this a hidden gem close to everthing!!! We love it..!!

Refused to honor commitment and was super rude about it. Snoooooty atmosphere. How uncool! In this day and age with transparency afforded by the Internet, this is completely wrong.Nice setting, though. Oh.... NO BEACH TOWELS OR CHAIRS. Good thinking for a beach town resort, eh?

We had our first stay at the Bellmore this last week. Pros: convenient location and parking. The general interior of this hotel is fairly "old-fashioned" more so than luxury or elegant. We are by no means youngsters and have traveled well, but for the price we paid to stay here, we had hoped for more substance than fluff. We had a great massage at the spa. The breakfasts were adequate, but the one thing that really turned us off was that each of us found hairs in our breakfast food on the same morning. Mine was in a "homemade biscuit" and my husband found one in his pastry. We showed them to one of the staff as he removed our plates and told him we were fairly disgusted. He said nothing, took our plates to a woman who seemed to be in charge and that was it. We expected nothing other than an apology, but nothing was said by either of them. We had good privacy during our 5 night stay, found delicious restaurants nearby and enjoyed our quiet break from DC. However, I have since found lovely homes for rent for the same price we paid for the week. Taxes and service fees were high, in my opinion. I would prefer to rent a house the next time, where we could cook and have more space than a hotel room. Employees were helpful and kind (aside from the breakfast crew).. But, as an overall experience, for the price, I would not repeat this.

Room Tip: Second floor garden view room was fine.

Excellent public areas. Nice places for small groups to gather. Courtyard especially fine. Friendly and helpful staff. Room quite nice although bathroom very small. WiiFi difficult to access. Keeps coming up with network called Optimum which is difficult to work around.
We agree with previous review about breakfast,. Hot foods disappoint. Best was yogurt, granola and berries. Excellent coffee. Orange juice blah. All in all we very much enjoyed our stay.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Bellmoor and that you found our property to be quite & relaxing. We pride ourselves in offering nothing but the best to our guests and we rely on feedback such as yours to help us improve. In regards to your comment about the WiFi, it seems that you were trying to connect to a network that wasn't ours. We recently upgraded our entire WiFi system and it has some of the best connectivity in town. Our breakfast is catered in every morning and I have passed your comments about the breakfast on to our catering staff. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best wishes.

We have stayed here on two previous occasions and have ALWAYS enjoyed the location and the ambiance. The breakfast was really diminished this stay, however. The normally delish hot foods were sub par. The egg casserole was dry and had nothing in it but eggs. The room was brimming with guests and when servers refreshed foods, they used tongs to replace items piece by piece, not full plate to replace empty ones. What a waste of time! The servers eyed the guests as they took items almost saying "are you seriously goin to make me go back and refill these danishes again!?" I wanted to tell them-if you would bring out more than 7 at a time with a FULL room, then you wouldn't have to work so hard. Plus the danishes were about the size of a half dollar. For $500 a night you better be prepared to serve more than this. The fruit was cut into tiny little pieces and placed in tiny bowls with a spoon for everyone to share. The yogurt was pre measured into juice glasses. The granola was about a 1/4 cup in a bowl for the entire room to share! This is a serious fault that must be remedied. The "afternoon treats" were cookies and were the same half dollar size joke. The "lemonade" was really ice water with lemons floating in it. Not what it used to be just a year ago. What happened? The Library is always a peaceful and relaxing spot, but the books are very outdated and in desperate need of rejuvenation. A solution would be to have guests sign out books to guarantee their return? The room was clean, except for tiny ants. They also need to clean the outside lights of bugs burned onto the cottage rooms. Gross. I hope our next stay sees an upgrade Inservice for the price we paid. I'd hate to stay anywhere else!
