“Cozy but noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2008

We arrived on Friday December 28th in Belfast for one week holidays. We asked the Tourism Office at the airport to indicate us a close by hotel for just one night (we had to pick-up the car the next morning at the airport).

The hotel, 2 min taxi drive from airport, was nice (cozy), the room was sweet (Cottage Room) but unfortunately that room is above the kitchen so the smell and the noise is quite strong (+ kitchen vent in front of room window). But the service and the food were excellent! If you like seeing the planes take off (+ the noise), it's a great place to spend one night (but maybe not more....)

  • Liked — Location close from the aiport and warm atmosphere
  • Disliked — Our room was just above the kitchen so smells, noise of ventilation and noises of the breakfast's preparation in the morning.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2007

I've had the pleasure of staying here a few times now. I travel to Belfast quite frequently with work and actually I look forward to my trips when I know that I'll be staying at the Ballyrobin.

Whether you're travelling to Antrim on work or for pleasure, I would recommend that you stay here. It also makes an excellent choice for a pre flight hotel (very convenient for the International Airport) and the breakfasts served from 7am to both residents and non residents are another reason to pay a visit.

It isn't a large place, just the four bedrooms, but it is beautifully presented and the individually styled rooms are lovely and comfy.

The food is excellent and the bar is well stocked. The meals are well priced and delicious. I've sampled a few pints of Guinness around Belfast and I've yet to find one that tastes better. Maybe it's the open fire in the bar. The staff are lovely and will make your stay an enjoyable one.

I can't recommend the Ballyrobin enough. It's a beautiful place.

Stayed October 2007

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2006

We visited this restaurant for my daughters 21st birthday. The restaurant was clean and beautifully decorated. The service was efficient (no need to leave a tip as there was an extra £18 service charge for our party of 7). The menu choice is small but the content excellent. Very tasty and well presented. Great atmosphere. We all enjoyed our night. I would recommend this restaurant.
