Was given a night at Rayanne House by my Better Half and I thoroughly enjoyed what was a surprise gift. She had booked 'The Rory McIllroy Room' and I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I entered the room. Desktop featured memorabilia from his US Open triumph in 2011, amongst other things like scorecard and pitch mark repairer from... More

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend and we both loved it. The room was absolutely fantastic, with beautiful views over Belfast Lough. Everything was wonderfully clean, and there were so many complimentaries, little shampoos, slippers, dressing gowns, plenty of teas and coffees, and even a bottle of port. Breakfast was amazing, once we finally decided what to have... More

Rayanne House is obviously a great place to stay, otherwise it wouldn't rate so highly on Tripadvisor. In fact, this is the one stay which makes me query hotels that Tripadvisor tell me are wonderful. My first mistake was to read the reviews that say it is the best place to eat out of the 35 or so restaurants and... More

It is located about 5 mins walk from the station and ten minutes drive to the airport. The rooms are very clean with lots of extras and modern bathrooms. Staff are discrete and incredibly helpful.

The food is seriously good. Yes it is expensive but if you are looking for a treat on a special occasion look no further. Professional, attentive, unhurried service in the most pleasant of surroundings plus delicious food, what more can one ask?
