Visited here the evening 3rd April 15 and sorry to say very disappointed. First impressions were good a clean and modern looking restaurant let down by poorly trained and rude staff. After being seated and asked would we like drinks which arrived after 10 minutes it took a further 20 minutes for the main order to be taken by the... More

I visited the Ivanhoe on Saturday for the first time and what a lovely place it is. The décor is really beautiful, very bright and modern and it is absolutely spotless. The bistro is really pretty leading into a traditional bar with open fire and very comfortable seating. We were greeted by a very nice receptionist and were directed to... More

Booked a meal for 4 people in the Ivanhoe Restaurant tonight at 7:30. Didn't get starters went straight for the meal. I ordered chicken stack with garlic potatoes in a separate bowl. I ate the chicken stack and the garlic potatoes separately dipping the garlic potatoes into the gravy. Towards the end of the meal I poured the garlic potatoes... More

We recently stayed here and have to say that the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast the following morning was alright could have been better if all the staff had of turned in to work that morning. Young chap left on his own to try and look after all the guests.

On entry 1lady greeted us and when we asked for a table she went off and we assumed she went to find us a table...but she didn't return!After waiting we eventually got a table...shouldn't the lady who greeted us have offered us a seat in the bar to have a drink...

The Hotel Manager is honestly baffled that you found her to be rude. She asks that if you phone us on 028 90 812240, she will call you back and discuss the matter with you. We would be grateful if you would phone us at a convenient time for you. She will be here until after 10pm this evening or... More

We tried to get a meal on Saturday evening before heading into Belfast for a show in GOH. Didn't know we had to book as it was Mother's day the next day.The waitress offered to put us in the bar then decided it was too busy also. I'm sure the owners would be annoyed that she couldn't accommodate us. Wr... More

Could not fault the service, rooms spacious and clean. We had a evening meal on our second night, the only issue being I had chicken and gravy (very little) when I asked the waitress if I could have more gravy I was advised that I would be charged for extra gravy.... Speechless! I didn't bother, apart from that a nice... More

Stayed in March for one night. From outside not too appealing but reception all modern. Room large and clean but average hotel like. Tv in corner not too big a size. Room service did not charge which is great and the food was good. Slept well. Did not have breakfast so cant comment on that.
