Had to park out on the street two nights in a row - I think the building workers had priority utilizing the parking spots - Unfortunately one of those nights were in the "rain bomb" period - Jumped into the shower after I ran back to my room - I'm going back to Belmont in a month. Don't think I will book there again until after the building additions are completed

The room was old and poorly fitted out and not very clean . The bed was very uncomfortable. There were major renovations taking place that we were not made aware of. Metal shaving blowing onto our car. We actually seen a big dog walking in and out of a room. It was so bad we were booked and paid for three nights and only stayed for two. Photos on line are fake and nothing like reality

Check in was easy. The room was clean and smelt nice. A great view of the lake from our room and lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the view.
