My wife and I had originally booked a room in the "Painted Lady" house for our stay in Sandwich. When we arrived Chris had upgraded our room to the "Friday" room in the belfry. The room was beautiful, and Chris was a great host! The staff was very friendly and efficient, and we would definitely stay there again! Dave and Stacy Cavanaugh - Petal, MS

Had an absolutely amazing stay! Everything certainly exceeded any expectations. Room was beautiful. Food was scrumptious. Service was wonderful. Definitely recommended! :-D

We stayed in the Belfry the weekend of August 9-10. Our room, in the building they call The Village, was large and sunny. Literally threadbare carpet -but otherwise clean and nice. I wish they had room darkening shades. The sun blazed in at 5:30 am! Being in Sandwich was great. It's a cute, tiny little town. So laid back, and easy to get everywhere. The Town Beach is close, and beautiful - though only at low tide! There was a wedding at the Belfry the weekend we were there, and I think the staff was overwhelmed. When we arrived, we were quickly shown to our room by a nameless, if perfectly pleasant staff member, and then literally never spoken to by anyone who worked there again -- other than our waitress at breakfast. The overall feeling was not of a B&B - where you meet the inn keeper and chat, but more like a hotel: you're greeted, and then you're on your own. For some, this is a plus. But for me, the personal touch is why I like B&Bs. Breakfast itself was perfectly OK. But it took forever, and the second morning we just walked a few doors down to the coffee shop for a quick bite. The Belfry breakfast wasn't worth the calories or the wait. Doughy muffin, serviceable eggs, and they forgot to give us our fruit until we asked several times. At dinner, the restaurant was packed, but we didn't try it. The first day, when we got back to our room at 4:30 after a day at the beach, it had still not been made up. I'm sure it was because of the wedding -- we saw the college-girl looking housekeeper, and she was sweet but frazzled. She offered to do the room then...but we wanted to shower and relax, so we declined. It was 4:30 after all. I'd imagine that when they're not crazy busy, it's a totally different experience. But they were crazy busy -- so for us, it was a pretty place, a great spot, and perfectly OK otherwise, but just OK.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn this past weekend and we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was quaint and not so over the top you feel like you should never leave it. The dining experience we had was one of the best we have had anywhere. The menu is superb and the execution was flawless. I had my best meal of the year on Saturday evening and the breakfasts were a step above even the better fare offered at other B&B's. The staff was attentive but not overly "friendly." The owner was omnipresent taking care of the details without being overly chatty. We usually like to try new places but we will not be able to resist the call of the sumptuous dining experiences we had at the Bistro.

My husband and I stayed at the Belfry Inn last week for 3 nights. The inn is beautiful, clean and centrally located. We checked in and the lovely receptionist took us to our room which was a standard type room. The room was pretty, clean and small but its was fine. About 1/2 hour later the same receptionist knocks on our door an tells us that since they're doing some work on the roof they're up-grading our room. They didn't want our vacation to be disturbed by the noise They could not have been nicer!!! We have been to some inns where the breakfast is lackluster but not here. The breakfast was in a beautiful room that was once a church. We ordered off the menu and had a choice of about 8 breakfast entrees, The food was great along with the very friendly waitresses. Seriously, if you're thinking of going to Cape Cod don't miss the Belfry Inn it's everything you'll expect from a high quality inn and more. I give it a whooping 5 stars!!

This B&B did not meet our expectations. The grounds are beautiful, and the exterior of the building is very nice. However, our room looked more like a motel than a B&B, with an industrial-looking bathtub in the middle of the room.
Thank your for your feedback. We have only three rooms that feature a whirlpool tub in the guest room, the other rooms have the same type tub but they are located in the enclosed bathroom. In the Painted Lady building the George and Martha rooms and in the Abbey the Saturday room the tubs are in the room. The tubs are ultra massage tubs that push air not water. The effect is extremely soothing. We have guests stay just to take a tub as we are on the website for the manufacturer. They are truly amazing and wish only that you experienced the effect. As far as decor each room have all been painted and refreshed every season. They have flat screen 22" TVs and a 40" in the Saturday room. In addition the George has a gas fireplace. Guests love to sit in the tub with the fireplace going! The bedding is 400 thread count. All three rooms are the most requested becuase of the tubs! The Saturday room is located in the Abbey the former church. The stainglass window of Gabriel the angel is amazing. The room faces directly south and just has an awesome feeling. We have had rave reviews about the Bistro recently with Zagat the highest for decor (29) and 27 for food and 27 for service. This is an exceptional rating in our peer group. Breakfast we offer two entrees during the week with Sunday a full menu of six items...howvere we will make whatever the guets requires cheerfully! Only two other restaurants had a Zagat rating of 27 for food on the Cape. Boston TV Channel 5 Chronicle has featured us three times, most recently June 5th, just becuase of our uniqueness! It is very unfortuanate that you felt as if you were in a motel becuase that is not what we are.... sometimes we cannot meet all expectations and only hope you revist us to truly experience what we have to offer!

Spent just one nite, but had a nice sunny afternoon in the Saturday room. Food is some of the best on Cape Cod and wine dinners are an added value.

Belfry Inn is a sweet Victorian BnB in a pleasant neighborhood with some nice shops. The beach is not too fare away as well. Breakfast is served and you can decide between two dishes. The quality is good, but the menu is repetitive. We stayed in the pretty small but beautiful “Ida room” in the “Painted Lady”. This is a room with two separated beds. There are tiny little stairs for children going up to a tiny little tower next to the room. Together with the room on the other side of the floor it is ideal for a family. The other guesthouse is totally different and perfect for couples. Many rooms are provided with a fireplace and a whirlpool. The rooms in the church are very unusual with huge church windows.

This B&B was very nice and we had a great time but if you are looking for a town with night life this wouldn't be the place for you. Stay here if you are looking for quiet, peace, and relaxation.

Belfry in is actually 3 different buildings: the Belfry (old Catholic Church), the Painted Lady (Victorian home) and a Federal Style home. I had booked a room at Painted Lady (I love Victorian homes). When I got there, the proprieter had "upgraded" us to the Federal Style Home withour telling us a head of time. Yes, it was a larger room and charming decor, but would have liked to know ahead of time. The oilet and shower were in a separte room from the double sinks. However, there was no towel ring or bar next to the sinks to hold the towel. There also wasn't any soap for the shower, only foaming hand soap. Spoke to the proprieter the next morning. He promptly went to the building to ask house keeping to get us some soap. It never happened. Over all, the stay was okay.

I really enjoyed the Belfry Inn. My only regret was my visit was very short. I did get to peek into some of the rooms that were not occupied, and they all were equally lovely. I was amazed at the size of the guest rooms. They are all so spacious! It's an easy walk to anywhere in Sandwich from here too - another nice bonus.
