Great facilities and easy to meet other travellers in the verandah lounge with its dining table, pool table and sofas. The upstairs wall photo collage was VERY unique. The hostel is centrally located to the Church Street market and cafes too.

Dear GreyNomad2014, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review our guesthouse. I am so glad you took advantage of our perfect location and visited our fabulous monthly community markets. Yes the photos upstairs are a classic!

There is a piano, guitars, armonica, flute, plenty of books, a projector... but this is nothing compared to the terraces of the hostel...awesome. i wouldnt doubt to come back

The Belfry is a nice place and Bellingen a nice little town. The view of the mountains from the deck upstairs is gorgeous. We were there with our 6 year old and the only drawback was some noise (live music) from the pubs nearby. Went on till late but didn't stop us sleeping.

Dear Nick, Thank you you for staying at the Belfry Guesthouse. I'm so delighted you enjoyed the spectacular view from our verandah. Unfortunately our wonderful close location to Bellingen's cafes, shops and pubs does mean there is occasionally some live music sounds that drift over to our guesthouse. I'm glad it didn't stop you from sleeping. Thank you for taking...

We found this place last minute and we're very happy, given that it was the busy season and pouring with rain. What a gorgeous place. All white timber 2 story Queenslander style building with sweeping verandahs and views down the river valley. Felt very homely. Would definitely stay here again next road trip through Bellingen.

This was a perfect stop over for my trip from Sydney to Brisbane. Rooms, kitchens and bathrooms were clean. The verandahs are lovely overlooking the river and valley. There are many handy places to eat and listen to live music is nearby.

Amazing hostel, well situated, calm and relaxing atmosphere. Stunning view from the balcony perfect for a glass of wine at the sunset. Bellingen is a cute hippie town worth the detour. Very nice staff at the hostel.

The Belfry Guesthouse is one of the nicest places we have stayed in Australia. Perfect location, situated between the Bellinger river & the town centre- great cafes, bars, restaurants & shops are only a short stroll away. The facilities are clean & the views were incredible. Rowan and Renee were extremely helpful and we can't wait to return.

This is just the most gorgeous and relaxing guesthouse. Stunning views, comfortable and clean, friendly staff who are local and know the area well.
