If I was getting married in 1967 and had limited funds this is the place I would settle for.
In fact I don't think the furnishings or red carpet have been cleaned since 1967. We were invited to a wedding a while back and ushered into 'Cupids' room for the ceremony, the door sign indicating it was 'Cupids Room' should have alerted me..it was something you would have seen on a primary school stationary cupboard.
Grubby and tired would be the words I would use to describe the Belmont, desperately in need of a face lift and a steam clean ( the cigarette buts on the red carpet was my particular favourite sight)
The food was awful, luke warm and overdone, the soup was an interesting conversation topic at the table...was it vegetable? Was is prawn bisque? Was it some exotic Caribbean flavour yet to be discovered? It was meant to be cream of vegetable, but I have never seen a vegetable that colour before. (a PEACH coloured vegetable??)
The beef was as tough as an old boot ( maybe it WAS an old boot) and the vegetables overcooked and half cold.
The best bit was the bread roll.
I hope never to darken the door of this shambolic place again, Banbridge deserves better, but if this is the best on offer here you would be better off getting married in the Florentine.

An excellent spot to stop off for a quick bar snack or A La Carte meal. Al, the head waiter has been there for eternity, but the place just wouldn't be the same if he wasnt. very keenly priced, super deals on beers when football is on, £2 a pint!!! Only draw back I have found is, you have to walk up the stairs to go outside for a smoke, but thats the price you have to pay for quality food, beers, and 'craic' with the bar staff and management.

Ended up in this hotel on a training course with some colleagues for a day. It's on the outskirts of the town, close to the motorway, so I would say it's handy enough to get to if you're passing through Banbridge. It's a small family run hotel, with a dozen or so rooms, and a few small conference rooms, of which we were using one of for the day. Although it was quite small for our needs, it was pleasant and well heated, and the staff were very helpful bringing in tea, coffee, and scones and so forth as we needed it. The food at lunchtime was really nice too - with an extensive menu to choose from, which I thought was a nice touch considering we were delegates on a course who were used to getting a choice of maybe two items for lunch, typically. Although the downside was that because so many different things were ordered, it did take a while for the food to arrive and different dishes had quite a gap of time between them, so some people were on thier desserts by the time others were just starting thier main courses, which was a little disappointing. I had the fish and chips and it was very very good - so that did kind of make up for it.
