No kerb appeal and inside lives up to the view from the road! Needs a full refurbishment - staff are helpful but the overall ambiance is awful. It also has a dreadful 'local reputation' so if you are thinking of it as a business venue, you will not enhance your own reputation by holding an event here.

awful - needs updating badly - very run down and neglected and needs a lot of TLC. It's obviously seen better days but the decor is old fashioned and the outside appearance sums up the hotel when you enter.

For my husband's birthday, I booked one night at The Chimney Corner Hotel. We had a lovely stay, the hotel is a little dated but very clean. Staff are polite & helpful. Dinner was delicious & reasonably priced. No complaints, we were very impressed. Over all a very relaxing & pleasant stay. We will be back! :)

Having been shocked by prices quoted in central Belfast, I came on this place at random on the Internet, and I'm pleased I did. £35 a night (not including breakfast) is excellent value for a clean room with TV, comfortable bed, tea and coffee and a trouser press. Only problem was the shower, a bit tepid if everyone else is... More

Rooms are grand for what you pay, the décor is slightly dated but quite clean. Compared to the prices in Belfast itself this hotel is worth a stay, you would need to get a taxi into the city as there is no way you would walk to it. Ample parking around the front, I did get a little worried about... More

Stayed here last year with my boyfriend. Rooms are very clean and staff are very friendly. The food was also superb. Surrounding views are relaxing and great for a weekend away. Defo recommend and stay here in future.

This is a nice hotel, a little dated the bathroom was very 70s but clean. Breakfast was suberb and included a singing chef!! Overall great value for money, Staff were pleasant, but perhaps a little more traing for the waiting staff in the restaurant might be a good idea, as the menu knowledge of the waitress was limited.
