“Fab!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Myself and my Sister stayed here for a friends wedding on the 4th November 2013 paying a very responsible £75 B&B. I initially was very sceptical about this hotel as I had heard quite negative reports mainly those relating to the decor of the hotel- BUT- I was pleasantly surprised :).

The entrance into the Hotel is actually very nice and my first impressions where good. Looking around the hotel-both the bar and restuarant where nicely decorated and laid out, and all staff I dealt with where pleasant and helpful. On checking in at reception-the receptionist was very welcoming-and explained all the necessary. When we got to our room we were so surpirsed by how spacious it was and the size of the bed!! The room was spotless and relatively modern. My ONLY critism would be to perhaps upgrade the shower unit-it was a bit dated but all the same it did the job!

My friends wedding itself was lovely and the hotel function room was big and nicely decorated for the day! The wedding meal was what you normally get at any wedding but still very tasty and again staff always on hand to help with anything.

Our nights sleep was undisturbed and the bed was so comfortable! Breakfast the following morning was delicious-enough of a selection to choose from and staff always on hand to get you your tea and coffee.

Checking out-was again a pleasant experience-the receptionist was extremly nice and just topped off our fanastic stay!!

Reasonably priced, good food and good staff-will definitely be staying here again and who knows possibly just get married here too! :)

Stayed on the Saturday night, Very pleasantly surprised with the large room we got and the huge bed. A very cosy bed. Grouting around the bathroom could do with replacing but lovely fluffy towels, pity no hot water in the morning!!. But that was the only down side. We had a nice meal and great entertainment afterwards with Jimmy Cricket and a great singer John. Nice bonus for the trip. Could have stayed up all night to listen to him. Nice peaceful night sleep and loads to eat in the morning for the buffet breakfast. Great and enjoyable stay....lovely area and had a stroll around Whitehead in the morning in the November sun.

My close family and I recently stayed here for a quiet, relaxing hen party and we were very pleased. The staff could not do enough to help and let us have ajoining rooms and a late check out and early check-in. This hotel was great value for money and well placed to explore the countyside and go shopping in Belfast and Junction One. Our rooms were clean and spacious and we will definetly be back.

My husband and I stayed overnight on 2 November (Grabone deal). Had a lovely welcome at reception...staff very helpful & pleasant and just a very relaxed atmosphere on arrival. Delighted with quality of our room - very clean, comfortable, warm and ensuite was spotless; ...surprised to read report from '19Joy63'....this must have been very disappointing for them. We booked our meal for that evening and I must say, the food was beautiful. Very pleased with quality & choice, and service was great..(very tasty breakfast next morning as well!) Two guys singing Sat night - entertainment very enjoyable. (We were guests in March this year at a wedding in the Clarion and knew from our meal experience then, we were in for a treat!). We both try to get away regularly on these type of weekend breaks and must say this was one of the nicest.
Thanks to all the Clarion staff..... hope to see you all again soon.

My partner and I spent one night in this wonderful hotel on a 'GrabOne' voucher.
We were delighted with the way we were treated! Great service by all who looked after us- from check in to check out.
We had a three course evening meal which was as good as we have eaten anywhere. The goats cheese brioche (which was my starter) was so tasty - followed by sea bass, again wonderful.
The bedroom was large, clean and comfortable, and the super-sized bed was brilliant!
Definitely would recommend this hotel.
