  • Is it quiet at night?

    We have a strict 9.30pm quiet curfew out of respect for our guests and close neighbours. Even though we are in the centre of town we are very quiet. We have some band music from the hotel near us on Friday/Saturday nights.

Company info

As new owners, we have been influenced greatly by our extensive travels in Bali and India. We are hoping to create a little of that special ambiance at our guesthouse in Bellingen. The Belfry Guesthouse has a strong community sense of belonging, giving back and supporting our wonderful Bellingen community. In 2016 we hosted the Gyuto Monks of Tibet in our guesthouse and provided a free, community weekend program for people to experience first hand the Gyuto Monks. We support the Bello Winter Music Festival, we are a major sponsor of the OUTA (Open Up To Art) Festival and Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival. Being part of our vibrant local community is very important to us.
