Reviewed July 9, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at The Belfray in June of 2013. Exhausted from our previous evening we were able to peacefully spend the early afternoon and evening overlooking a lovely glen with cattle and magpies. The room was well stocked with complimentary teas, coffees, cookies which made us feel welcome. The decoration was lovely and it was absolutely clean. Wi-Fi was easy and reliable. The bath was nice with a big opaque window and large tub. The dinner was HUGE, wonderful (wonderful!!, we packed up the remainders for lunch the next day!) and very well priced. There was a ball going on that evening with a live band in the ballroom and we did not hear a SOUND! Bliss! We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We were tired and hungry when we arrived and completely rejuvenated when we left the next day! Our room was beautiful and beautifully appointed (the only washcloths in Ireland), the staff was warm and welcoming, Bed was marvelous! The new elevator was fun and made for conversation! We ate in the lounge and the food was prepared perfectly and the wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast was terrific - again with a great wait staff. Highly recommend - everything was done perfectly!

I stayed at the hotel and attended a road safety business seminar organised by the Northern Ireland Road Safety council on the 27th June 2013. Everything about the Belfray from the decor, food, accomodation, staff and overall experience was FIRST CLASS, and I would recommend this wonderful place to everyone heading to L'derry. In particular all the staff are incredibly professional and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, I've not quite experienced service like it, and Martin gets a special thank you from me for the thoughtfulness (and amazing shortbread)!!!!

It was my first time at the Belfray Country inn hotel and it is definitely the best customer service I've ever had! The hotel and room are very clean and decorated with taste and style. The bed is amazingly comfy.
The restaurant and bistro serve delicious food, big portions and reasonable prices. The service is just EXCELLENT!!!! The Toffee & Malteser Pavlova is to die for. I recommend that hotel and will definitely come back.

The Road Safety Council of Northern Ireland held a road safety seminar at the Belfray. We had guest speakers over from England who were amazed by this hotel. They had an overnight stay and commented that they have never been treated so well. The ballroom was a superb setting for the seminar and all guests were given a cooked breakfast which was superb. Staff could not have been more helpful. A special mention must go to Brian, John, Daphne, Geraldine, Ryan and Martin for their attention to detail. The IT set up was first class enabling us to run power points presentations and videos seamlessly To anyone looking for a venue for a seminar or just looking for a perfect hotel, Go to the Belfray.
