“A Keeper!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Log this one in your list of places to visit again and again, never having to worry about what you are going to get. The Bellmoor Inn and Spa is located in a quiet yet close to everything that Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has to offer. Two of the top restaurants (Salt Air and Henlopen City Oyster House) are just a block away. Probably one of the best (real) Italian places, Frank and Louie's is only three blocks away, ummm Sal's Favorite from the deli, taken back to the Bellmoor garden for lunch. This B&B and spa is close enough to the beach but it is not about the beach. It is more like a cruise on land. Very, very relaxing and quiet retreat. The breakfast in the morning offers everything you would go out to find in a restaurant and the liquids and cookies in the afternoons are of the can't have just one type.

We highly recommend the Bellmoor !!

Room Tip: The Garden rooms and the garden are so inviting.

Stayed again recently and the Inn is wonderful. The staff at check in is efficient and professional. They will answer all your questions and are great with suggestions on local dining. The Inn has its own parking lot and is walkable to everything in Rehoboth Beach. A huge advantage as off street parking is at a premium and the meters are $1.50 per hour.

The Inn features large rooms, a game room, library, 3 pools and a Spa. If you stay on the top floor that section is adult only and features suites. Some of the suites are two bedrooms separated by a kitchen and living room, each bedroom with its own bathroom. The adult only floor also has its own library where soft beverages and snacks are also available free of charge. There is also an adult only pool as well but it is open to all adult guests not just those staying on the club level.

Breakfast is included with your stay and features an egg station, pancakes, breakfast meats as well as fresh baked breads and pastries. The breakfast is served buffet style but the wait is never too long. Coffee, tea and juices are also included with this meal.

The afternoon features a tea service where cookies, tea, iced tea scones etc are served. All in a relaxed atmosphere and both breakfast and tea can be taken indoors or al fresco.

Rehoboth has great dining options and a variety of cuisines to choose from. Two favorites are seafood at the Henlopen Oyster House and Mexican at Dos Locos. Henlopen Oyster House also has a great happy hour that starts at 3pm with many specials but if you are not in by 3:15 you may not get a seat as the bar area is small.

All in all, this is the place to stay when visiting the DE shore.

We stay at The Bellmore every year for hubs' birthday. We have yet to be disappointed. Actually, we've thought about going somewhere else but just can't seem to break our Bellmore habit. The Spa Swedish massage was a great surprise birthday present this year!
The ONLY thing I would change is for them to try adding one more day change for the breakfast menu. Alternating every other day can get old if you have a long stay there. Consistent excellence!

My spouse and I have been coming to Rehoboth for over a decade and this was our first stay at the Bellmoor. Throughout our vacation we repeatedly asked ourselves why it was our first stay.

The Bellmoor combines the best of a hotel - well sized rooms, daily housekeeping, and the ability to come and go without feeling like you're being monitored - with the best of a bed & breakfast - friendly, knowledgeable staff, a homey feel with plenty of public spaces and amenities, and, of course, a full breakfast every morning.

The building itself is unassuming and easy to pass by on Christian Street but the interior courtyard is a hidden gem which includes an adults-only dip pool (there is also a larger, family friendly pool on the second level), plenty of shady places to sit and read, and most of all, quiet away from the hubbub of Rehoboth Avenue and the boardwalk.

We will be staying here again.

My husband and I just spent a lovely weekend at the Bellmoor Inn. From the moment we arrived the customer service was excellent. Each person who works there went above and beyond trying to help us and make us happy in every which way. We had to change our original reservations for the weekend instead of a Sunday & Monday. Even with our change of plans the lady who helped us change our reservation was extremely conscientious making sure that our desires of location were fulfilled: We chose the third floor and a quieter room away from the noise of the city. This change was not easy during their busy season. In addition the overnight lady who worked at the desk was warm and friendly. Our room was the standard king size bed. Our room was pretty, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is updated and the shower is easy to use and terrific! Our daily breakfast was delicious with many options including omelette choices, grits, cereal, pancakes, french toast, juices, etc. The hot tub and pool were the perfect ending to wonderful days on the beach. Bellmoor's location is only two blocks from the ocean! The parking is only 9.00 a day and worth every penny! We do plan on returning to Rehoboth Beach in the near future and we will stay again at the Bellmoor Inn and Spa!

My husband and I booked two nights at the Bellmoor for a quick summer getaway to Rehoboth Beach. The reservation desk folks were very flexible when our plans changed and I needed to change the dates of the reservation. This is one of the few places where the level of service is still very high and it is also within walking distance of the beach. The patrons were a mix of older adults, younger couples, and folks with children.

We booked a queen garden room, which is one of the most reasonable options at the Bellmoor. Our room was #108, which was an end room on the first floor on the lower level. Each of the garden rooms opens out to a covered sidewalk, and then to the beautiful garden area with Adirondack chairs and tables. When we checked in, the woman at the desk actually walked us all the way to the room, instead of merely pointing or giving directions. The queen garden rooms are cozy; do not expect a large room with seating areas. However, our purpose was to enjoy the beach, not the room, and the room was very clean, well-equipped and elegantly appointed. There was a counter high fridge. The a/c is from a window unit, which ran continuously, but which we did not find distracting in any way. There is a nice sink/dressing area separate from the BR which contains the shower and toilet. We found the bed to be comfortable, and there is a ceiling fan in addition to the A/C. A small writing desk and chair were provided in addition to the three drawer dresser that held the TV. Robes, toiletries, hairdryer, ironing board -- everything we needed was there. The wifi worked in the room (and in the common rooms, as well as at the pool), but there is also a computer room for those who come without personal devices.

Breakfast at the Bellmoor is served buffet style. We chose to eat outside the first morning in the lovely garden. Breakfast options included french toast or scrambled eggs with sausage the first day, and egg casserole or sausage biscuits with gravy the second day. There are many choices for coffee (available all day), juices, and sweet treats, like scones, sweet rolls, and muffins. They also put out afternoon refreshments (iced tea, lemonade and cookies) between 3 - 4:00. The second day we were a few minutes late and the refreshments had all been consumed, so this is a popular time of day.

We walked to the beach (two longer blocks, but not strenuous), carrying our gear. It was wonderful not to have to feed the parking meters. When we came back to the hotel, we spent the afternoon at the Magnolia pool -- the adults only pool that was literally outside our door. Again, this pool is small in scale -- do not expect a lap pool. But there were plenty of lounges, some shade, towels provided, and total tranquility. The pool is a little under 4 feet deep, and is more for a dip to cool off.

We have stayed at several Select Registry properties, and have found them all to be unique. The Bellmoor is the perfect option for couples or families who like a higher level of service than a beach motel. It was a nice, quiet, oasis in the midst of the busy town of Rehoboth. We could walk to restaurants or the beach without moving the car (which was in protected parking, under cover). The families with children who were there were able to use the slightly bigger (upper level) pool, where the jacuzzi and fitness room are also located. The common rooms include a front sunroom, gathering room, the breakfast room, and a rear sun porch, which provide many options to find a reading corner.

We will plan to return to the Bellmoor the next time we visit Rehoboth.

We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and would like to thank you for taking the time to write such an amazing and thorough review of our property! I am glad that everything was perfect during your stay with us and that you enjoyed our garden and adults only pool. For me the garden area is my favorite aspect of our property and one that i feel sets our hotel apart from the others in the area. The garden is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast in the morning or relax with a good book during the day. We look forward to having you return to stay with us again in the near future, Best wishes from all of your friends at The Bellmoor.
