The hotel and the grounds are absolutely fabulous but the hotel left me a little lacking. The food was not as good as expected and a few of the hotel reception staff could do with being a little friendlier. The staff at the little bistro, not in the main hotel but still in the grounds were much more plesant and... More

I attended a wedding in the Culloden in January 2014. Of course with the reputation of the Culloden I expected great things & was somewhat disappointed. The exterior & grounds of the hotel are beautiful. Perfect for wedding photos. Parts of the interior however let the hotel down. As it was a very wet day a lot of the photos... More

Just enjoyed a very brief stay whilst hosting a Corporate breakfast for 40 movers and shakers in Northern Ireland. The stay was superb. Great rooms, great warm friendly service and good food. A special thanks to Lynn Beggs and her team - Rebecca, Nicole, Michael and Gemma, for working tirelessly throughout the morning to ensure that our event went smoothly.... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Rooms are amazing. Service is great. Breakfast is soooo good! Had a 4 course meal in the mitre restaurant - very good. The only downside is the spa - not much to do only a sauna, hot tub and swimming pool. Galgorms spa definitely beats it! The other downside is when we were waiting to... More

The property is delightful, beautifully landscaped grounds set on a rolling hillside sloping towards a lake. The main hotel sits at the top of the slope with the restaurant and lounge areas with the best vistas. The owners have taken great care to maintain the character and ambiance of the original stone building. A charming building at the lower part... More

This review is long overdue, my fiance and I stayed here in December last - time slipped quickly away between this and then but I can't not pass on how amazing we found Culloden. I had read some reviews here before we went, and I must admit I was not sure what to expect as the reviews were very mixed,... More

Food was not as good as I expected it to be. The room was cold but staff did provide us with an extra heater. Rom was quite noisy and seemed like it was cheaply built. Was not informed that we had use of spa. Should take some tips from eth Galgorm on how guests are informed of hotel amenities at... More

Even though there are a few minor issues with this hotel which I will describe later. This hotel is excellent from the moment you walk through the doors. Reception has lovely people working in it with smiles and make you feel welcome. They set up the stay in the hotel. We paid for an upgrade to the harris suite which... More
