I stayed on business originally as it was the only place I could find locally for my stay for 4 nights in a row. Upon arrival (later than expected) Robert (the owner) was there to welcome me. This is a really comfortable and pleasantly peaceful place to stay. I was working mainly evenings, so unfortunately I did not have the... More

We stayed at Marlagh Lodge for 2 nights at the beginning of September. The house is located just outside Ballymena and is lovely and very comfortable. We were greeted by Robert, who helped us with our bags and after showing us to our room, served us tea in the music room. The whole house is very tastefully decorated with lots... More

What a wonderful stay we had at Marlagh Lodge. Robert has a wonderful house and every little detail has been though of! I have stayed in many nice hotels and all seem to miss a little detail that would make your stay better, however, no need to worry at Marlagh Lodge as they have all been covered. The 3 rooms...

My 3 night stay was very comfortable in this period home, full of character. Host Robert was welcoming and accommodating. In addition to the normal cereals and juices, stewed plums with cinnamon and cloves was for me a first time delight. The Ulster Fry was perfectly cooked using local produce. Locally baked wheaten bread is another example of the quality... More

Five stars is not enough. I was impressed from the moment we parked outside. Stunning house. A rearm and friendly welcome from a really great host. The most elegant and luxurious bedroom I have ever stayed in. I can't wait to go back

We just had a beautiful afternoon tea for 7 at the Marlagh Lodge Tea Room. The ambience of the 'old' house is perfect for 'afternoon tea'. The food was obviously home produce with dainty sandwiches, fresh scones, and a great selection cake and buns and other goodies. Tea and coffee were refilled often by the pleasant and helpful staff. Would... More

If you're for a Dickens esc. Christmas the Marlagh Lodge is the place to stay. Traditional but with modern hospitality from the room to the food and host, this place does not disappoint. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were well looked after. We would stay again. Thank you Robert for making our stay at the Marlagh Lodge and... More

They are latter-day Victorians really, Robert and Rachel. So they'll probably appreciate a bit of Latin scholarship - I found a phrase book in our bedroom, one among hundreds of fascinating reads shelved all over the magnificent Marlagh Lodge and readily available to guests. Ballymena? Not a Mecca for classy accommodation, I hear you say. You might be right. But... More
