I went to the belfry on a business function. Given the cost of the stay, I was not impressed at the quality of either the rooms, or the food on offer. This hotel used to be part of the DeVere group, which is a shame, as I have stayed at several other DeVere hotels and found them to be very pleasant, with good food on offer and very reasonably priced.
The room was infested with flies, with maybe 20-30 of them buzzing around behind the curtains. There was no quibble when I informed them, and they gave me another room, however, the new room also had a fly problem. As there were only 7 or 8 this time, I disposed of them and did not take the matter further.
The food on offer was well below par (excuse the pun) when compared to the DeVere hotels. Given that the cost of a room is in excess of £120/night, the food was basic. For example, one of the two deserts that were offered was "ice cream and chocolate sauce". I consider this to be a children's offering, and certainly not something that I would have expected to see at a hotel with The Belfry's perceived standing.
The one positive was that the wifi within the hotel was very fast, but then I would fully expect it to be, given that they charge £15 for 24 hours use!
All I can say is that I am thankful that I did not pay to stay there.
