Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here a number of times and it is not what it used to be. It is an expensive hotel and unfortunately the little things let it down. The good points are: Lots of hot water Showers with power and force Wonderful views from the lake facing bedrooms Comfortable beds Rabbits on the lawn during breakfast, in true Beatrix Potter fashion Points for improvement Breakfast can be hit and if you dont order the same toast or tea as the rest of the party or of you order off the 'extra charge' menu Cleaning is hit and miss in the bedrooms. being tall I can see dust on top of shower heads, mirrors and tables. Have to ask for more than 4 coat hangers in a room and also have to ask on one occassion for toilet paper. Towels with holes. Dont go when there is a wedding on. You feel a second class citizen as rooms are closed, the carpark is full,parts of the terrace are reserved for wedding guests only and there is nowhere to sit in comfort. Leisure facilities ie a gym or a spa dont exist The pool is closed and looks down at heel The lift has a manually operated door so you are reliant on others to close the door or you have to walk up or down flights of stairs Overall it is tired, both the physical hotel and the staff. They dont seem enthusiastic or engaged when you raise issues. Money needs to be spentraising its game.

This is a good hotel, but as one of the more expensive it should be better. There was a wedding reception on the day we arrived meaning there was absolutely no parking avaliable. We ended up parking on the street a short walk away. The decor is lovely and to a high standard throughout. All the staff we encountered were helpful and attentive. Breakfast was also really good and thankfully we avoided the 9.30 rush. The bedroom was a bit warm, but the shower was really good. To sum up, this is a good hotel, but for the price aught to be better.

Received full menu in the Brasserie, waited with our drinks to order only to be told then that the Chef had decided they could only do Sandwiches due to a Wedding! Perhaps some forward planning on Easter Sunday would have been appropriate or at the very least to have explained before seating us & taking our drinks order. Disappointing to say the least

Very over priced for the standard you receive. Breakfast was very disappointing we didn’t expect a buffet, also staff were not on the ball. When we questioned the bill on check out which was incorrect by £54 the manner in which we were spoken to was rude & unacceptable when they were in the wrong. Would not return, expected a much higher standard for the amount they charge.

Second time my wife and I have stayed here,however this time the room was quite small with no bath. The room was clean and tidy and the Breakfast was excellent We did find the bar staff rather cold and not eager to chat about the area or hotel.

Just had two days stay at The Belsfield, absolutely first class, everything about the place is quality, from the luxurious room overlooking the Lake, to the service of the staff and outstanding breakfasts this hotel is outstanding

Only stayed one night but throughly enjoyed all aspects of our visit. The staff couldn't do enough and were cheerful although they were very busy as the hotel was full. The hotel has a large free car park and lovely grounds which wind down to the marina. The room we stayed in overlooked the lake and our evening meal in the Brassiere was excellent and imaginative. Breakfast is buffet style which worked OK for us but not for others. There are only scrambled eggs on the buffet, with poached, fried and boiled having to be ordered. Would stay again.

I had lunch yesterday at The Brasserie. I took my mum as a birthday treat. I had a slightly toasted sandwich. It was bread out of a packet ( i expected hand cut artisan bread for £10.95) with the smallest bit of chicken/egg placed in the middle so it looked like there was something in there.The lettuce garnish was limp and drizzled with a bit of dressing the crisps were soggy, all in all not nice.i left the majority of it. My Mum had hotpot (£15.95)which was tasteless. No veg just lumps of fatty lamb. She left it. My brother had fish pie which was alright and the side of chips were very good.Not good food, not good value for money. We waited over half and hour for this disappointing lunch. I actually went to ask if we had been forgotten.There were only 2 other people in there all lunch time so they were not busy. Has word got around that the food isn't up to scratch i wonder?

Stayed at this beautiful hotel yesterday. The decor the rooms were gorgeous . Huge room massive comfy bed. The view was unbelievable . Hotel is right in the centre close to all the bars and shops . Yet is was so quiet and peaceful . Staff helpful and friendly. Late night cocktails in the bar were fantastic . Would highly recommend and will definitely go again.

I visited this hotel for one night. The view is beautiful and in a great location. However, I was very disappointed by the lack of parking- it was constantly full. Also, the rooms had the potential to be amazing but were disappointing with the wallpaper peeling off, dirty carpets and the need of painting. Overall the hotel looked very tired and in need of some TLC. I was also disappointed with the quality of food- it was very average. Also I had pre-paid for a three course meal in the main restaurant. However, when I got there they informed me that the three course meal was only for the Brasserie which is more informal. This was very disappointing as this meal was for my boyfriends 21st and was supposed to be very special. It is a shame as the hotel has the potential to be stunning.
