I stayed here and was really impressed with the service. The hotel staff could not do enough for me. When I got up late, they had the kitchen make me up a breakfast and they gave me a late check-out when I requested same. The room was clean and tidy and served its purpose. The bar staff were lovely and... More

My wife and I recently booked a room for one night to attend a function outside the hotel. We arrived back at 1 a.m. to discover a constant hum which we were unable to source or control ( we suspect air conditioning on the roof). We got no sleep and no apology following our complaint on leaving. Very disappointing, beware... More

Adair Arms was a decent choice for central Antrim County. The staff was helpful, on site parking, and free internet were a plus. Our room was a nice size with a roomy bathroom, but I would not call it a suite (though they do). The bar is large and has entertainment on weekends. This proved to be a problem since... More

We stayed at the Adair Arms on 11-May. It was a great stop just north of Belfast. We enjoyed a very peaceful and restful sleep; the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was great and plentiful. All of the staff were pleasant and professional. The parking was free and located in their own car park behind the hotel. We would... More

stayed in ensuite..very clean..bed extremely comfortable, big tv...breakfast was lovely. Staff were very nice and location was very central. We went to Front Page bar...it was just a 5 minute walk around the corner. Would have stayed another night easily but Ballymena isnt good for nightlife with one main bar being in it..good town though

The room 109 is above the BAR and very very noisy do not expect to get to sleep before the early hours of the morning. You can hear loud deep voices in the bedroom and if you are unlucky enough to be staying when they have a party it is hell you can not even hear the television with it... More

Stayed here at the weekend as we were attending a function in another hotel and couldn't rate it highly enough. Room was lovely and peaceful and the staff were very helpful and willing to accommodate. We were worried that we were a bit late for the breakfast but food was still available and the staff did not mind. We had... More
