We stayed for one night, and like so many it was for a wedding. A lovely rural setting with beautiful grounds. We never had the opportunity to avail of the spa facilities but at a glance they looked the part. The room we had was in what I referred to as the 'basement'. It was of a good size, clean,... More

We had stayed in Galgorm 7 years ago (see my previous review) and returned to attend a family reunion nearby. We couldn't get over the changes in the hotel since our last stay. It is now a bustling hot-spot for swanky weddings with all 3 restaurants bursting with guests and a hoppin' atmosphere with live music in Gillies pub and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Galgorm for our 'babymoon'. Trying to reserve a room over the phone was annoying. I had to constantly ring the hotel over a few days, after leaving my third voicemail message and explaining this to the operator I finally got a return call and was able to book. I had requested the spa... More

My partner and I stayed in Galgorm in June 2014 for our 3rd wedding anniversary, as we do every year. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family with a warm welcome and the superior customer service we have come to expect from this outstanding establishment. We met with the customer services manager at the start of our... More

Attended a wedding at the Galgorm last weekend. Food and staff were excellent, cant fault any aspect of the meal or service provided. Drink typically overpriced for this type of place, expect to pay over £4 for a pint!! Lovely location for a wedding but I would guess it is very expensive.

This hotel is such a great place. My husband & I spend our anniversary here every year and it is pure indulgence.

Stayed here after a wedding a few weeks ago. Staff were accommodating and the bed is the comfiest bed around! Breakfast is a buffet style, they have a good selection from fry to crepes and cereals, although the layout is not the best and they do not check your room number, so anyone could walk in. Pool the next day... More
