The Belfry Hotel best known for its golf courses and the celebrated Ryder Cup was our choice for a one night spa break. On arrival in the Leisure Centre, we were shown around the "Aqua Spa Journey" experience, where one can enjoy 90 minutes exploring the 12 bio-thermal rooms. Commencing with a relaxing foot bath, we moved on to the aromatic steam rooms and caldarium and then the hydrotherapy pool which operates around five stations in different areas of the pool massaging the major muscle groups in the body. For the brave there is an ice cave with shower and bucket (just pull the chain for the icy water to wake up the entire system). I passed on this! After a hot shower in the shower grotto we moved into the Tranquilty Room to have a snooze on the loungers before exiting this lovely place to the swimming pool area. As it was Sunday it was relatively quiet late afternoon so after a swim and reading some of the newspapers/magazines left on the tables/loungers, we made our way to our room to change for the evening meal. The room was of a good size,warm, clean with comfortable beds and a hospitality tray, and the bathroom had everything we required – we were well pleased.

The evening meal was in the Atrium Restaurant and was a delicious carvery, with excellent choice of meats, duck, turkey, beef and lamb. Starters and desserts were very tempting too. The drinks menu has a wide choice. We retired happy and had a good night’s sleep.

The buffet breakfast was plentiful and appetizing and we were sorry it was our last meal. There are a good choice of beauty treatments and massages on offer but we only had time for one last swim (one can hire robes, just take a swimsuit and flipflops) and it was time for us to drive home in the snow again! Extensive car parking and grounds – passed the Bel Air nightclub by the entrance which is open on Thursday through the weekend – just another attraction to add to the list. This was a most enjoyable spa break at a moderate cost, so, keep looking on their website.
