Had breakfast yesterday Sunday 17th August with my wife, son and his girlfriend. We had a deal with treat ticket. I must say I was really impressed, the food was great and the service excellent. I have heard of mixed reviews of this place but hope to go back to try the evening menu. Victor L

We visited this restaurant for lunch, just to try it out, having passed it on a number of occasions on our way up to Carrickfergus. You can see immediately that it is in the middle of/most of the way through extensive renovation, but that didn't spoil our visit. From the moment we arrived at the reception desk, we were greeted...

For a traditional / conventional meal like chicken and bacon or Turkey with stuffing there's nowhere in this area that is quite as good. The service is good and if you eat in the conservatory area, the view over Belfast Lough, particularly in the evening, is brilliant. My friends and I have an annual tradition of Xmas dinner here and... More

Have recently had dinner a few times here while hotel undergoing 'renovations'. Not exactly pleasant surroundings at the moment. Food generally good. Went with friends on Saturday night and ate in conservatory area. Still looks a bit tired and outside area is just a total tip. Apparently it is a new menu. My sizzling chicken and noodles was good.

As is often the case this was an evening check in and departure after breakfast. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms functional, free wifi, and with the benefit of a quiet location. The chair was OK but the room would be better wirth a comfortable lounge chair. Breakfast was cooked to order and nicely appetising. And all... More
