I spent a period of six weeks in the Belfray staying as a guest with my son after having a house fire. The owners, managers, kitchen staff, reception staff,bar staff,housekeeping staff and restaurant staff were excellent. We were made feel very welcome and got to know everyone well over this time. Nothing was ever any bother and everyone was very courteous and helpful throughout our stay. I ate with my son each evening in the restaurant and the food was excellent with a great range of food on the menu.
Also on a Sunday we had a carvery lunch which was excellent with the restaurant very well run as it is extremely popular and busy on Sundays. On Easter Sunday my entire family and some friends had Sunday Carvery lunch which was beautiful and very generous portions. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and will visit again and again. Anne & Keelin O'Kane

On a recent visit to the belfray i am delighted to say it was a wonderful experience for myself and my invited party..It all started with the warm welcoming we received..We were showing to are tables and presented with menus..we were allowed just the right amount of time before are order was taken..I would like to say how helpful and pleasant the staff were..Our food arrived beautifully presented and i must say speaking for myself and my friends it was delicious..We went on to have dessert and irish coffees and again we were surprised with both presentation and service..I would go as far to recommend the belfray country inn to any one looking to dine either as a family or just for a great night out for drinks..Atmosphere and staff all around so helpful looking forward to seeing you all again soon..

We just celebrated our twins christening @ the belfray. The staff made the whole day very special for us going that extra mile to make sure everyone is catered for. No job too big for brian & his staff. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We also celebrated our wedding there 3 years ago-again faultless. The food is to die for.and the staff so very friendly. Thanks for everything brian xx

My wife and I stayed overnight for my sons wedding reception on 3rd April 2013, I booked eight rooms to accommodate family and everyone raved about the Hotel. I would like to thank Daphne
personally for sorting out my requests.
The rooms were stylish and the attention to detail showed throughout the hotel. The food was amazing and again the attention to detail was superb.
Brain & David must be very proud at what the have achieved with this GEM of a Hotel.
Now what can I say about the staff, they are very professional as the standard of the Belfry shows, but what stood out most for me was how genuinely warm, friendly and attentive they
were, a class act at a class Hotel.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

Robert Thompson

I cannot recommend this Hotel more. Being a professional wedding guest at the moment I've been in all the biggies and many throughout the land and The Belfray is my favourite to date. It may not have the grounds of the Galgorm or Culloden, or the rooms of the Hilton. What is does have is comfortable but stylish appeal in a warm and humble location with absolutely fabulous staff. When you ask at check in about a late check out and the concierge replies with a nonchalant 'there's no rush on a Sunday' you're onto a winner. There was no rush, no packing you off to get the rooms cleaned or racket about the corridors in the morning.Having worked catering for many years I can appreciate staff who enjoy what they do and every member I came across was helpful warm and friendly and it could be seen not only in our interactions but in seeing the staff with obviously regulars. Absolutely tip top.

Room Tip: Rooms are nice and of good quality however many may not have much of a view.

I was lucky enough to attend a Function in the Belfray Country Inn. We were priviliged to be able to see the Gala show which was wonderful and not like anything else you would find anywhere else in Northern Ireland, absolutey unique to the Belfray. My daughter, sister-in-law and myself stayed overnight at the Belfray on the Friday night and had a wonderful relaxing time. The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The beds are aaaamazing! so comfortable and cosy. We had a great night's sleep and woke in the morning to beautiful views and birdsong!
Breakfast was first class and service was excellent. We were sorry to have to leave! Looking forward to our next visit!
