Amazing due to the anount if relaxation your staff were able to provide us. The complementary use of the pool and steam room, the treatment and the herbal soak that we had prior. With that being...

We'd visited here once before and so decided to come for the weekend as a sort of mini honeymoon. I booked a year in advance and told them we'd be arriving straight from our wedding reception. Because it was such a special occasion, I was going to book a suite but we were told we'd be given a free upgrade... More

After going to our friend's wedding in Galgorm a few years ago, we always wanted to have our wedding there too and I'm so glad that we did! The day was just perfect and worth every penny. The staff were all brilliant but we have to especially thank Michael Fairbanks for ensuring that the day ran like clockwork but still... More

Recently went to the River Room for a birthday celebration. Requested a window seat which we got but if you want a river / waterfall view you need to be specific and ask for this. The food was delicious, with extra unexpected courses, we left feeling well fed without having eaten huge portions. Staff were attentive, knowledgable and unobtrusive. The... More

Stayed here on two occasions this year, the first being in January. We stayed in a Junior Suite which was very spacious. The only thing the room lacked was a proper coffee facility. A cafetière or nespresso machine would've been nice. The spa was wonderful but a little too busy. Our 2nd visit was for a family wedding. The wedding... More
