What's new?
A financial investment of £26m saw major changes to The Belfry last year, with every corner of the Midlands resort improved. All 319 guestrooms and 21 conference and event spaces have been updated, lifting the property to another level of luxury.

Rooms
Delegates keeping one eye on their golf clubs during the meeting will enjoy staying in one of The Belfry's renovated Signature suites, as each room looks out onto the PGA Championship and The Brabazon golf courses. The three Manor House suites are the ultimate in luxury at The Belfry and have views directly onto the putting green.

Event space
The largest space can hold up to 400 for conferences or 200 for a gala dinner, while the smaller event spaces can host a range of group sizes. Several course-facing meeting rooms come with their own private bar and patio area, which can be used for barbecues or small drinks receptions in the summer.

Dining
The hotel's dining offering was a key focus during the refurbishment and The Ryder Grill is now a renowned Midlands restaurant. The Brabazon Bar, in the heart of the hotel, is perfect for either afternoon tea or a nightcap.

Delegate downtime
Golf enthusiasts will find themselves in heaven at The Belfry, which has hosted more Ryder Cup matches than any other venue in the world. Delegates whose interests lie elsewhere can visit the £1m renovated spa, where a one-of-a-kind 'Fire & Ice' treatment is on offer.
