Thank you!

My (now) husband and I, chose The Belmont for our wedding reception a month ago and I can honestly say that The Belmont staff really made our day, the best! Nothing was an issue when planning our wedding and Sian was absolutely wonderful. She was quick to respond to all my questions and queries and myself and my other half, both felt so comfortable with her, as if we were talking to a friend. On the day, the team was incredible. Attentive, friendly, with nothing ever being an issue. Lovely food and atmosphere! We didn't want our day to end. We wish we could have stayed in our room for longer - the bedroom was beautiful, unique and clean. We highly recommend The Belmont for anyone wanting to go, whether it be for breakfast, a special occasion or for their own wedding. Our friends and family really loved it too and made a lot of lovely comments about the hotel. Thank you so so much - words cannot explain what you all did for us on our special day. We look forward to having more special celebrations there! The Sargeants - xx

One Word - Amazing!

We had previously booked another venue for our wedding, but saw a poster with their wedding packages on whilst attending a fair at The Belmont and couldn't believe what good value it was compared to what we already had booked. In fact, it was so good, that we lost our £500 deposit at the first venue, changed to The Belmont and still saved money!
It was definitely a blessing in disguise because we couldn't have hoped for a better venue for our wedding. Our wedding planner/co-ordinator, Caroline, was only ever a phone call or email away and always responded quickly and professionally. It was SO reassuring knowing that we could rely on her. In the lead up to the big day, everything was running so smoothly but on the day itself, we had a very unexpected problem - an evening guest had turned up at the ceremony! We had no meal or place setting for them! At the first opportunity we told Caroline what had happened and she was so calm and reassuring. She arranged for an extra table setting and a meal, complete with name card, which all just seemed to magically appear!
Every member of staff that we encountered at The Belmont was just lovely. We stayed there overnight and the next morning was my new husband's birthday and Caroline had written a card for him, which was a lovely, personal touch. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, was all packed up ready for us to take home with us after our breakfast.
In short, the whole day was just how it should be - no stress, full of love, laughter and fun, and we are so grateful to The Belmont and to Caroline in particular for making our day so special.

Felt like family

We had our whole wedding here. From thr moment we started planning till a year later when we got married all the staff where so helpful and friendly. Sain guided us through all the planning and the day and Moany was fabulous at organising and making sure everything ran smoothly. Even had my Hen party here too. The wedding day was fabulous and the food was amazing. Our wedding celebrations started from our booking in on the Friday night all through the wedding day and onto breakfast on the Sunday morning.

Superb Wedding

Superb organisation, superb staff, superb food, superb cost. From our first visit to look at the Hotel to when we got married the Event manager (Sian) and her team couldn't have been any better, she took all the worry about our wedding planning away and we and our guests thoroughly loved the whole event. Nobody had any adverse comments at all.

September Wedding

Nothing was too much for staff at the Belmont.
Any queries were answered promptly during the planning stage. On the day everyone was very professional and each stage was communicated efficiently.
Our guests all expressed how delicious the food was and described the Belmont as a little’Gem’.

Memorable day

From the first phone call to the breakfast the morning after our wedding, we were made to feel welcome and wanted. Sian Keogh, the Wedding & Events Co-ordinator was extremely helpful and accommodating. She assisted all the way through, with arrangements and processes and introduced us to relevant suppliers and services. And on the day David conducted the event seamlessly.
Wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was excellent with a wide variety of choices on the menu. All added up to a lovely and a wonderful day. Made my wife very, very happy, no more than a husband could ask for.

Lovely breakfasts!

Thank you so much for looking after our guests, and us - the newly weds - on our wedding evening. We really appreciated the bar being open so late. Our wedding suite was lovely and the breakfast very much needed the next morning! Many thanks

Wonderful hotel

We had our wedding reception here on 31st July 2009 when the hotel was part way through a renovation. It was absolutely wonderful. The food was incredible and our guests all said what a great hotel we had chosen. Can''t recommend highly enough.
