My sister and I booked into Bellinter House for 2 nights in April. I wanted to treat my sister and give her a lovely relaxing stay in nice surroundings and Bellinter was perfect for this. We had a full body massage as soon as we arrived and it was our first experience of the staff of Bellinter. They were so lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and they really put us at ease. My sister really loved this and was on a high after her massage.
Bellinter House is not "shabby chic" in that pretentious, making something new 'look old' way. It is an authentic, historical building. They have done an amazing job of balancing comfort for their guests with maintaining some of the original aspects of the house. It is difficult and expensive to run a place like this-far easier to run a modern concrete block -so they have done an outstanding job.
I'm really shocked at the complaints of Bellinter House being 'dirty'. It was spotless! Yes, some things were old-its a historical building! I'd prefer the amazing original fireplace with the cracks and marks from hundreds of years of burning in front of important and historical people -such as Jonathan Swift- than a "shabby chic" replacement. The pool was completely clear and extremely clean-as was the sauna. I'm starting to wonder where these other people stayed?
Bellinter House exceeded our expectations and this was largely due to the wonderful staff. They were genuine and friendly and even advised us where to go that evening. (The Palace in Navan has great music and a good mix of ages) The walk down by the river Boyne is really nice-wellies available for this! A big group of girls were having great fun in the outdoor hottub while we were there too. The food in the restaurant is delicious though a little pricey and the bar is extremely comfortable with the large roaring fire. The teacakes in the room with the nice coffee is a lovely touch. The cocktails are very tasty.Try the afternoon tea, its far better than others I've had and very generous. Just recalling all this makes me want to go back. Thank you to all the staff at Bellinter House, and to those in charge of running it, keep it up-we hope to come back for years to come!
