“I’m a big fan of The Belfry because I’ve always played golf there but this is the first time I’ve gone and not played golf but had spa treatments instead. For my friend and our two seven year old daughters it was real girly time.
“while we crammed a lot in, it still felt like we really escaped and had quality time together”
There’s mini golf for the kids, so while we had massages our other halves took the girls to play. It’s a very big hotel and there’s always something going on so you can stay there and never leave thanks to things like the live music, the buzzing clubhouse and three golf courses.
It’s also very kid friendly, in fact it’s friendly in general. At the buffet restaurant they provide colouring packs for the children, we had lots of fun with the kids in the pool and while we crammed a lot in, it still felt like we really escaped and had quality time together.
It really is a great place for families because it has everything. It was a bank holiday when we went, but it didn’t feel crowded, and considering that it’s predominately known for golf it’s amazing how much they offer so that they really have something for everyone. It’s perfect for children but without sacrificing an adult experience that adults will enjoy.
There are lots of restaurant options but we stuck with the buffet because it was most suited to children. We all did that thing where you pile your plate with things you would never normally eat at home because it was all so appetising, and I couldn’t fault it. Every meat, veg and fish dish you could think of was there and I sampled everything!
The spa won the whole experience for me. It’s quiet and tranquil and pool area was really big with sections that are shallow and great for the kids as well as sections for people who wanted to swim lengths. There are multiple hot tubs and they have a lovely fire and ice area, while the relaxation room was lovely after our massages. You wouldn’t have thought in this quiet spa that over the other side there’s a lively clubhouse where all the golfers stop off; the balance through the resort is just right.
All I can really say is that it’s beautiful. The view is dominated by the golf courses, and they are impeccably maintained. It’s also one of the best golf courses in the country, so for me in particular who loves playing golf, it’s got everything I could ask for.
The Belfry really is a hotel and spa for anyone. It’s lovely for couples, a group of friends or going with the family because there is simply so much to do and so many options for how to spend your time. It’s really a spa experience for everyone.
