Been a while since we stayed here if I am being honest. Since our last visit the Hotel has had a major facelift and the rooms have been refurbished. The hotel has also been upgraded to a 4**** status. The staff were always the best and continue to be the best. We see the biggest improvement in the state of... More

Myself and two friends stayed here on Sunday the 13th of April for a night away. The rooms are pretty below average just because there old. Plenty of space though considering there was three in a room. The shower was cornered off properly so the whole bathroom was soaked. Good water pressure though. The pillows where very hard and uncomfortable.... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. Please accept my apologies for not meeting your expectations. As you suggest it is always better to book direct with the hotel rather than though 3rd party sites. Our full breakfast is £10.95 if not prebooked with your room rate and it includes a selection from our cold buffet, fresh fruit salad, prunes... More

Visited on business for just one night, the hotel is very convenient for the air port being just a 10 minute taxi ride away. We arrived late and the reception staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful, we explained that we had an early plane to catch and would require an early breakfast, she arranged that and...

What more can I say about this fabulous hotel except that it just gets better & better with each visit. The only thing I hate about our visits is that we have to leave. Looking forward to our next visit on 27th April, can't come quick enough. Hope to see Jill &Mary next time as they were both absent on... More

After deciding to treat my sister in law to a wee night away for her birthday I started ringing round all the usual spa resorts in n. Ireland. The cost for one nights stay with evening meal, breakfast and a spa treatment was upwards of £300 which I felt was just too much, now im not sure how I came... More

We arrived at the hotel to find that there appeared to be an Irish Dancing competition taking place ! The reception area was covered with children in curly wigs and the smell of food also being served in reception area was overpowering! We were asked to pay at Reception before we had even seen our room..Not usual practice! I suggested... More

Thank you for your comments after your brief experience with us. As you said we did indeed have an Irish dancing completion on but as this finished at 5pm we did not anticipate it causing our guests an inconvenience. With regard to paying on arrival this was because you were paying cash and not prepared to provide a credit card.... More

I needed a venue for a dinner for up to 20 people for a significant birthday celebration and chose the White Horse because the 'well' of the restaurant sounded perfect, the menu offered a good range of interesting dishes at reasonable cost and the people I was dealing with were so helpful. On the night itself, the food was excellent,... More

Spent a weekend in the White Horse Hotel. Initially thought that it was a bit 'out of town'. However the hotel is quite self sufficient with a fine leisure centre, good bar and nightly musical entertainment. Staff were invariably friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and the freshly baked cookies in the room were a nice touch. While the outward... More
