“Pure Luck.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2010

Was caught wandering in N. Ireland, and as darkness closed in found myself in need of a place to sleep for the night. Drove by the Belfray, turned around, and man, what luck. The room was awesome, clean, newly refurbished. The service was just right, friendly, knowledgeable. The morning "Full Irish" was massive!
Unless you have a car, Derry is too far away to get to. Derry a fantastic, a really interesting city well worth a day to stroll/explore. Do go to N. Ireland, it's incredible, the people are fantastic, and the natural beauty defies words.

Where to start.... What an incredible venue for a wedding. My wife and I had our wedding on the 26th of September with a large portion of the wedding party (my side) coming from England.

From the start the Belfray management and staff were there to assist our plans even though we were trying to arrange the wedding predominantly from England.

The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are beyond excellent. No bog standard look like your basic hotel but immaculate rooms with an individual designer feel. Every guest we invited commented on the standard of these. The remaining facilities are to a high standard and i wouldn't hesitate to stay there for a night or two if the need arose.

The wedding itself was run like clockwork thanks to the Owner / Manager Brian. He and his staff worked tirelessly to make the event run smooth and meet all our needs. I can't emphasise enough the transformation the hotel has undertaken since Brian and his business partner have taken the Belfray on.

This place is truly excellent venue with great food, great staff, lovely rooms and good evening entertainment on weekends.

Thanks Belfray

We were searching Londonderry for somewhere to stay and in the dark were getting concerned as we couldn't find anywhere. A garage told us to try the Belfray - we are so grateful it was a very welcome find. Reasonably priced, very helpful staff, excellent comfortable rooms with all facilities and a nice pub to eat in on site. Excellent breakfast too.

We went to this inn with family members who live nearby. They love the restaurant and had good things to say about the food. We were not disappointed!!! The food and service were excellent, and seemed to be a very good value. We met one of the owners, too, a charming man who greeting us warmly. Nice decor. Highly recommend this place. It stands out as one of the best meals we had in the UK.
