Stayed here within the past week and couldn't praise the place highly enough. Check in took only a few moments and staff where more than friendly during the check in process and showing me to my room. Rooms are very clean and have everything you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay in a very central location. Bar and bar... More

It is such a lovely building, with original features that could make it somewhere special, however it is run down, dirty and smelly. Our room had stains over the carpet, the double bed was broken and the single bed quite small. The headboard had cigarette stains. the window... More

Sorry to say the food was just poor indeed and cold. I had soup for a starter which had a packet taste. The burger was cold and red in the middle. The waiter spilt a full glass of wine over my lap when serving us. They made no apology for doing so and didn't even replace the wine.

My wife and i stayed here for 2 nights, June 13th and 14th. Lovely place, got everything you need. We had a small back room, with no sea view but the room was more than adequate. Staff are very friendly, nice breakfast included and the bar meals are excellent.

Over on business again and was made feel very welcome as before. Keep up the good work Royal/Windsor and looking forward to the new build. Tried out the new Aurora swimming pool and leisure centre. Absolutely fabulous. Staff at hotel told me new street paving and landscaping happening in Bangor soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Family-run hotel overlooking Bangor Marina on the seafront at Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. As the first stage in the re-development of the site as a new state-of-the-art 52 bedroom hotel with apartments, the existing Royal Hotel has been down-sized and is called the Windsor Inn. All rooms are en suite with tea/coffee-making facilities and television. The Windsor Inn has a breakfast room overlooking the marina where a hot and cold buffet breakfast is served, a bar for lunch, bar snacks, evening meals and a beer garden. Resident DJs in the bar provide cool tunes/karaoke on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Some rooms can be affected by sound up to 1 am. The bedrooms are on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors and are reached by lift or stairs. Only 15 minutes from Belfast City Airport and IKEA, directly linked by rail to Belfast, Derry and Dublin. The Royal Hotel/Windsor Inn is the perfect base for business visitors and shoppers and a gateway to the beautiful Coast of Down. Royal County Down Golf Club, rated amongst the world's leading championship courses is an hour's drive but there are ten superb golf courses within a ten mile radius. Nearby you'll also find sailing, scuba diving, wildfowl and birdlife, fishing, castles, country houses, folk museums, historic sites, traditional music, genuine Irish pubs and the tranquil beauty of County Down, Strangford Lough and the Ards Peninsula. ... more   less
