My husband and I dined at the Belfry Bistro on a Friday night and can't wait to return. From the atmosphere - complete with piano player - to the incredible food we had a wonderful time. The only hiccup was that our waiter was slightly dismissive, pushing questions to my husband only.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with dinner and a two night stay in the Saturday room of this beautiful converted church. It was very special for us because we were married in this church before it was converted into a bed & breakfast. The building still has many of the stained glass windows and wooden details... More

We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed it immensely. Our room has a Jacuzzi type bath at the foot of our bed!! We used it on both nights - such luxury! The food in the restaurant was of a high quality for both breakfast and dinner. Excellent staff giving excellent service

Arrived exhausted after driving most of the day and had to wait until we called for assistance on a telephone to check in. The room we had booked was very nice but right above the bar which may have proved challenging for total peace and relaxation. Top marks though as my wife was shown an alternative room in the annex... More

Thank you for your comment. Having checked you in personnally, yes I was not at the desk but on my way back from checking in another guest. I would say the wait was less than 2 minutes. I'm sure it felt longer as your wife indicated you had a severe head ache, while you sat in the chair with your... More

The Belfry Inne is a marvellous combination of an elegant, weatherboard New England large house, and a high quality restaurant in a converted church. The hotel part is absolutely delightful, having large tastefully furnished rooms in a building of considerable historic interest. There are little balconies and rooms which are open to all, as well as the bedrooms. The restaurant... More

What a neat and quaint place to go for dinner or for a drink! It's an old church turned into a hot spot in the Sandwich area! If you're looking for something different, it's a great place to try! We loved it!

The Belfry is in a beautifully restored church and it very much has the "wow" factor! We were delighted with our room in the main building (Saturday). It was spacious, well appointed and delightfully quirky! Breakfast both mornings was excellent. We dined in the Bistro on the evening we arrived and the food was very good indeed - that said...

Wow! This is an old church and it still has charm. As you sit there, you can easily imagine it as a church with confessionals and pews. They have a wonderful wine list and we tried a few bottles. The menu is great. The burrata salad was yummy as was the swordfish. We also ordered a couple of specials and... More

I stayed at the Belfry Inn for two nights. It is charming, wonderful and relaxing. The Innkeeper and staff are great. The Bistro is outstanding as well -- I enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. I highly recommend a stay there!
