From Check in to check out faultless immaculate in every way. the breakfast one of the freshest good choice breakfast In a larger hotel I have enjoyed and the sausages a 10/10 the best out of any large hotel by a long way very reasonably priced. Book with total cofidence

The Belfry was easy to find, after coming off the motorway, from the airport. Nice large car park .Reception staff were very professional, especially Liam. Our room was clean, and had all those little things that are special, Ironing board with steam iron, Tea/coffee and plenty of milk, sweeteners/sugar and lovely biscuits each day Beds very comfy, and never heard a sound from anywhere. Special treat from the hotel, a small box of chocolates and a card, for our Anniversary. Overall a superb stay thank you. Also Breakfast was superb. Our only minor negative point was the Bar Prices, which include coffees were quite expensive. Staff /cleaners brilliant.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here - this hotel is lovely. I liked the fresh feeling of the room along with the balcony. The food was delicious, breakfast was my favourite. However I think the lunch options in the restaurant could be improved. The staff were so friendly, professional and welcoming, particularly Katie (assistant restaurant manager) and the lady who did my treatments. Overall a very pleasant stay!

I stayed here for 1 night. The young apprentice on reception was a really nice young lad, polite, welcoming and warm. I did go for a drink in the bar but it was a bit quiet, so I felt a little self conscious as I was alone. I then went to use the pool and spa facilities. Lovely little pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Really clean and well organised. For dinner I ordered a Grilled Chicken breast burger, and cheese board on room service. I was told that it might be around 45 mins but it arrived a lot quicker. The food was good too. Would stay here again.

We were very excited to book a stay at the Belfry hotel, having visited before to use the spa and gym facilities. I booked a suit for our wedding night a year in advance. I stated on the booking at the time and rang a week before to confirm late check in and the reason for this. I was assured that it was 24 hour reception and bar. We recommended to our family and friends to also stay at the hotel. After the wedding we got back to the hotel with friends who, even though they weren't staying made the effort to come back so we could all have a last drink together. I went to check in and the staff member didn't greet me, slid my key card on the counter and didn't tell me any information about breakfast, where the room was or ask any questions as to the fact we were clearly the wedding party. When I asked questions about the stay I received grunted responses and sighs. I then queried that we were told the bar was 24 hours. He sighed yet again and told us he would get someone to open it. No cash or card accepted at the bar meant that by this time people who had come for a last drink left without service. I went to the room to change and on the way saw vomit in the corridor and empty glasses and dirty dishes outside our suite. My bridesmaid also saw the vomit and told the staff member to which no apology was given and just a shrug 'il get to it in a minute'. Having paid a lot of money for the room and telling our guests to also book as we assured them the hotel would be worth it, I was very upset with the service we received. Most guests live local to the hotel but wanted the wedding to be even more special so decided to also stay the night instead of just going home. The next day we asked to speak to the manager after informing the reception staff what had happened. They we're lovely - it was just a shame they were not working the night before. Unfortunately we were told the manager wasn't available. So we left our details and asked for a phone call. Later on when we spoke on the phone, the manager wasn't very apologetic and just suggested they might need a bit more training. My husband then asked for a phone call back later after he had spoken to the member of staff on shift at the time. 4 days later we have received no further correspondence from the manager. What a shame and an unneeded sadness to tarnish our first night as husband and wife. The room itself was lovely, it's just a shame that the service we received wasn't. We didn't let this ruin our night but our friends and family were disappointed on our behalf and also for themselves. Sadly wouldn't rush back to stay or use the facilities.

FINALLY left the M1 and was greeted with a warm friendly smile at reception. Room was clean, very well kept with a comfy bed and hot shower. Used the gym (👍) and then visited the restaurant. Food is very good and all tasted freshly prepared. Great wine list and now looking forward to my luxurious bedroom 👍.

We booked the spa break with overnight stay. We had buffet lunch on arrival which was very nice. The spa treatment was very relaxing & staff very informative. The pool & spa area was quite busy but we were still able to enjoy the facilities. Dinner was OK but staff were busy relaying tables and when our starters came out mine was forgotten about & my friends had finished theirs before I got it. The only other negative comment was we got a call to ask us to go back to reception as we were not set up to add things to our bill which I have never come across & it was on £28 bottle of wine so we refused & said we would sort it out in the morning as we were in bed by this time. Overall it's great value for money for a ladies spa break & we had a great time.

2 friends and I visited The Nottingham Belfry for a 2 day spa break this week for a 30th birthday surprise. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff named Sebastian. Sebastian was a great help in keeping some little surprises we had in-store for the birthday girl, a secret. He even went above and beyond by decorating our room prior to check in (and what a lovely job he did too). Once checked in we headed over to the bar for a pre-lunch drink where we were served by a very helpful and lovely lady. Glass of wine in hand we found ourselves a quiet corner to have a girlie chat. The bar area was a lovely place to sit back and relax, the décor was modern yet cosy and the ambience was calming. We then headed to the restaurant for lunch. Lunch was a help yourself buffet with a wide variety of foods to suit even the fussiest of eaters. (The cheeseboard was particularly good!) After lunch we headed to our room to get changed. The room was immaculate and very spacious for saying there were 3 beds in there!! Waiting for us was a bottle of Prosecco (included in the spa break offer we had purchased). There was a TV, with a large number of channels to choose from, a hair dryer, trouser press, tea & coffee (and not that horrible cheap coffee most hotels supply!), bottled water in the fridge, biscuits and all the complimentary toiletries you could wish for. There was however only 2 robes provided but this was quickly rectified when we called down to reception who rushed up to bring us a third. It was now time to check out the facilities. We headed down to the spa where we were greeted by 2 friendly and chatty gentlemen (didn’t get their names unfortunately) they provided us with our robes and free slippers. We made a beeline straight for the pool which was the perfect temperature – It’s not a very large pool but it didn’t need to be, there was a section for swimming and an area for people to chill & chat. Next up was the Jacuzzi, again perfect temperature and a great place to sit back, chat and enjoy. The only negative point I have is that children were allowed in and it did get quite noisy, for us it wasn’t too much of a problem for us but if you are hoping for a scream free environment I would avoid going during the school holidays. After a day of relaxation, a few glasses of wine and lots of girly chat, we headed back to our room in order to get ready for the evening meal. Well, what a meal. The food was delicious! Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was great and they even bought out the surprise cake with candles whilst joining in singing Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl. Compliments to the chef and staff on shift – Perfect!! Unfortunately a dampener was then put on the evening by a member of staff named Daniella. We thought a night cap would be a lovely end to a fantastic day and evening, so we headed to the bar where we were greeted, quite abruptly, by Daniella. She didn’t seem too happy that she had customers to serve which meant pulling herself away from leaning on the bar whilst talking to two gentlemen. I ordered a glass of house wine (the wine we had been drinking during the day at £8 per glass). Daniella poured me the glass of wine and told me the cost was £10. I explained that this was more expensive than the wine we had been previously drinking, to which she said “That’s the cheapest wine we do, I don’t make the prices”. I found her tone very rude and patronising and therefore told her I would like a refund. There was no apology or offer of looking into this further, the wine was £10 and she was not prepared to listen to anything I had to say. It’s safe to say this definitely bought our spirits down so we headed back to our room for a cup of tea and an ‘earlyish’ night. We all had a great night’s sleep, very comfortable beds and a black-out blind to ensure that we were not woken up at sunrise. This leads me to my final negative point of our stay, the shower… The shower had a broken door, so only one side would open. This was fine for my 2 friends as they are very petite however as a larger lady I found it very difficult squeezing in and out. The final and favourite part of our break was our treatment. We all chose the Relaxing Face And Back Ritual, an hour of pure bliss. A back massage followed by a facial and a head massage. It’s safe to say we all walked out of there feeling like new women. All the staff within the spa were fantastic, so helpful and friendly. Definitely the highlight of our stay. Overall the stay was fantastic, if the few hiccups were avoided then it would have been a 5* from me. I will definitely be recommending to my friends and family and do plan to visit again. A massive thank you to Sebastian and all of the other friendly & welcoming staff that made our stay and my friends birthday so special.

Following the funeral of our beautiful Dad we had his reception at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel. I have to say the service we received from all the staff was first class. In particular I have to mention a beautiful lady, Georgia who went a above and beyond her role in catering for all our needs from the initial contact and booking right up to the actual day. Even down to the little touches of coming to find us before she went home to check again all was well with our day and then for us to find beautiful cards and little chocolates in our bedrooms just helped to put a smile on our faces on such a sad day. Another thank you has to go to the lovely Sophie who again attended to all our needs during the actual reception, nothing was too much trouble and the food was quality!! Quality staff for a quality hotel, so much so we have already booked our Silver Wedding reception with them for next year. Thank You guys The Walker Family xx

Our group of four booked in for a spa break with lunch,dinner and overnight accomodation included. Everything was very acceptable and we felt that it was value for money. Staff were very helpful in all areas of the hotel. Food was well presented and delicious. We had a great time in all.
