We stayed 7 nights at Belmont Reid’s hotel for our 45th Wedding Anniversary and we had an amazing time, surprised bottle of champagne delivered to our room . A surprised cake was brought to our table which was very thoughtful and we were touched by all the kind thoughtful touches to make our celebrations just that more special. Everything about this place is stunning, It has an amazing view of the Marina, also a beautiful garden - the rooms are traditionally decorated and very comfortable. The staffs are very helpful and friendly, all in all we enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Had a wonderful stay over Easter, we were very lucky with the weather which helped but the hotel was beyond compare. Al fresco breakfast was marvellous. Only there for a few days so spent our days lazing around the pool, but did fit in the ballroom dancing class and garden tour, both of which were great. Didn't feel we had long enough there as everything was so lovely and relaxing and we hope to return.

We were not staying in the hotel, but as a treat we visited. Instead of the usual afternoon tea at 3.00 we went slightly earlier and had the plate of pastries. There are 6, which doesn’t seem much, but the worst is delicious, the best is amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful making it a wonderful experience. It was so good we went again 5 days later!

The cocktails were not as good as I thought they would be the cosmopolitan cocktail had a cherry in it, I was taught to squeeze a rind of the orange to get the zest . The tea was served on the terrace which was quite windy and cold and they had run out of pashmina wraps so eventually my partner was provided with a blanket as previous clients had taken the pashminas with them. I thought it not as good as the Ritz as service was not as good until the head waiter attended to us then things improved.
