Stayed here for two nights mid-week with 2 friends & left very happy. The hotel itself is a little old fashioned, but for the price paid had everything you could hope & expect. The room was large, clean & comfortable but the best thing about this stay was the friendly & helpful staff, who made the process very pleasant. If... More

I especially like this hotel because everyone is always pleasant and the atmosphere is always inviting! This hotel is so close to the railway station (i get off, walk less than couple minutes and i'm literally there!), the city centre and the main arts building. For convenience and the service they offer here, i would recommend this hotel to anyone!

The check in was quick and friendly. Bedroom was clean, tidy and very comfortable and warm. i often stay in Bangor, and this hotel is the best one so far. That is the reason why i keep returning! The breakfast is wholesome, with lots of fruit, full breakfasts or go continental (croissants, pain au choc and other pastries), simply spoilt... More

I have to say, the Garden Hotel in Bangor is one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a number of years. After having to visit Bangor for medical reasons, the garden hotel was suggested to me by a friend, who has stayed there on many occasions. The room was absolutely immaculate, the bathroom had a really good... More

I've tried the two chinese restaurants on the high street; Garden Hotel and Eastern Origin. Garden Hotel is definately the one to head for if you want to enjoy a decent meal. I am actually impressed that i have enjoyed every single dish so far and each time i have ordered something different, usually dishes i would have never picked... More

Lovely room, great breakfast,friendly staff and the best Chinese I have evr tasted (though be awarere, the Chinese liquers may well be an ACQUIRED TASTE). Very cheap. Very handy. Believe me, I have stayed everywhere in... More

There must be two Garden Hotels in Bangor, because wherever the person that gave this place only one out of five stayed it certainly can't have been here! For a first time visitor to Bangor, this was a good place to start - it is visible as soon as you leave the railway station, and takes only a minute to... More

We stayed at the Garden for one night over the bank holiday. We were shown to our rooms which were spacious and clean with large bathrooms. The shower was not as hot as it could have been but having been in the road for 24 hours it was very welcome indeed. We ate at the chinese resturant that forms part... More

From other reviews expectations were high! They charge extra for Wi-Fi and there is no Sky Sports on the in room TV as was stated the web-sitre. The breakfast was average at best with damp (de-frosted) bread to make toast and strange tasting eggs!! The milk was beautifully presented in a plastic carton and the milk on the table (for... More
