An absolutely awesome experience from being welcomed by Norman the hotel manager, hosted by Norma the restaurant manager and a beautiful room overlooking the sea. That's what I call hospitality!!! Thank you so much, I had a wonderful time.

Myself and 3 friends had a gorgeous lunch in the lounge restaurant of the hotel recently and it was just delicious! But what made it more special was the personal attention from all the staff, especially the trainee manager Padraig, a very personable young man who was a credit to the Hastings Hotel brand! The hotel has just had a... More

We had dinner at Ballygally Hotel last Saturday for a 70th Birthday treat. The service & attention from the restaurant manager was outstanding. Food was of a high standard & waiting time was short enough not be wanting. Had drinks in the bar while there was a function on at the time, the bar service was fast & pleasant.

The Ballygally Castle has frequently existed in the shadow of the other Hasting Grp hotels. In the past this may or may not have been fair, but certainly since its recent refurb, the Ballygally Castle is a great, intimate Hotel in a fascinating part of NI. From start to finish the service and attention to detail was good, value for... More

This hotel was formerly an estate and is beautiful (it also has a ghost room in the turret if you care to visit it). The grounds are beautiful and it was across the street from the ocean. The room and bathroom were large and well maintained. The dining room was very pleasant and the service was excellent -- and the... More

We have just had the best night ever. Dinner and service were super. Entertainment was wonderful. Manager Scott and his team were the best couldn't have asked for better. Rooms very comfortable and luxurious. Would highly recommend venue as staff make all the difference. They are very special. Thanks all. Paula Stephanie Sharon and Lisa. X

She showed us to comfy seats in the lounge and as we were too early before the lounge menu started she offered coffees and the... More
