Much as you would expect from a golf and leisure hotel with the added bonus of genuinely positive and friendly staff. Would have scored excellent other than that the bedroom was too close to the events area where a succession of wedding parties made noise until early each morning of the stay..

Stayed using a voucher which included a credit against one evening meal. Arrived to find this was only against the dining room menu not bar food. There is no A la Carte menu, it is one set menu at €42 per head. So using the voucher dinner is €32. In this day and age that should mean a top class... More

Lovely spacious room although no air conditioning and on one night there was a wedding in the hotel and the music was very loud so we could not open our window for air. When I phoned reception to ask how long the music would go on for the girl offered... More

Started our holiday with a one night stop at The Ballymascanlon Hotel. A family gathering that included a round of golf on their well manicured but suitably testing course. Staff were friendly, hotel was really clean, rooms modern, food super. Welcoming Atmosphere Recommend it.

Beautiful and QUIET location in Dundalk. We were visiting family, and this proved to be the best location for our trip. The rooms are large. We happened to be staying during an uncharacteristically warm Irish weekend. There is no air conditioning at this hotel, but they did provide a fan for the room. Beds seemed a bit older for such...

Stayed here last August with my family. We were upgraded to a suite on account of having had our wedding in the hotel 2 years previously, so this was a nice surprise! The leisure centre was great and we used the pool/gym/sauna/steam room ad even the outdoor hot tub which was lovely. Had a beautiful room in the newer part... More

We stayed for 1 night over a busy weekend, it is a well presented hotel with nice rooms and bathrooms. It is a good location to drive to Belfast for shopping or a show. The staff are helpful and the food in the restaurant was average

I know this hotel well from having meetings there over several years but I recently stayed overnight for the first time. A nice place with great staff, but let down a bit by hygiene standards and a jaded decor. I imagine it would be great for a romantic rendezvous or escape from Belfast for the weekend.
