We enjoyed our stay at the Belfay. The rooms are well appointed and have quality bed linen and towels. The breakfast service is great and the one meal that we had in the restaraunt was super. My tongue in cheek comment would be "Sack the DJ" The compilation CD that seemed to be on permanent loop playing 1980's wall paper muzac !
Free car parking enabled us to leave the car and take a 7 GBP taxi ride into the city center and avoid trying to find and then pay parking charges.
Overall would recommend to couples looking for easy access to the city from a rural location.

Availed ourselves of a Spring Break offer, 2 nights B&B with one evening meal. Excellent value for money I have to say. The hotel is ornate... which is fine ... our room 101 had a lovely view of a wall!!! again, it didn't really bother us much, but someone on holiday might like a view..... the bed was very comfortable, the room was a really good size, plenty of space to move around... nice and warm too... although might be a bit too warm for some, the bathroom just the right temperature but the shower a little disappointing pressure wise but fine. Only a couple of problems which I mentioned as I was leaving ... the bathroom door wouldn't close and lock properly and the hairdryer wouldn't work, and I didn't have time to ask for a replacement as we were heading for breakfast, but the lovely lady at reception said she would get it sorted. The staff were very polite, friendly and cheerful especially in the restaurant. The food was excellent, breakfast choice was really good, the scrambled eggs were so light and fluffy, the salmon delightful and my husband really enjoyed the Fry, plenty of it too. Our evening meal was delicious and there is so much to choose from. We had the Arizona Chicken with fries and the Chilli wrap... really really good. The location is just outside Londonderry, you would have to drive into the city, but it is quiet and even with a wedding on, we didn't hear any noise. The only noise came from inconsiderate guests who shout and bang doors early morning or late evening....! But the hotel can't be blamed for that! A really enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend staying, and we will most certainly be back. I would have rate 5 had it not been for the door and hairdryer as everything else was excellent.

Room Tip: If you want a view, don't choose 101

Stayed here for 2 nights in April as I had won a FB competition run by Visit Derry.
Thank you very much to Management for arranging an extra bed in the Bridal Suite for our 12 year-old son. What a gorgeous room and plenty space for luggage etc. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and very modern and my husband loved the huge bath as he is 6'2". Lots of parking spaces right outside the door which was a bonus. Breakfast is served in a beautiful room and was waitress service which was lovely and not the usual buffet for a change. The breakfast was delicious and lots of choice.
The food in The Bistro was totally amazing - the first night we had 3 courses from the set menu and I had a delicious cocktail. The food was so enjoyable and the staff were extremely helpful, attentive and polite that we decided to eat here on the second night from the a la carte menu - again, we were not disappointed and had 3 courses each. Would definitely come and stay here again in the future - we visit Ireland regularly as my husband is Irish so a trip to The Belfray will definitely be on our agenda again soon.
