3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed one night for my boyfriend's birthday and the room was very outdated. Staff however were very friendly, with the exception of one boy in the country club who was more preoccupied with his phone than assisting us, which gave a very unprofessional vibe. I would recommend the pub across the road for a good meal and live entertainment. All round, the stay was standard.

We take quite a few short breaks all over Ireland-one of the many joys of retirement!
We found The Dunadry Hotel one of the best.
The staff were really friendly and helpful,lovely laid-back atmosphere and excellent food and accommodation.
The grounds were beautiful and well-kept.We were very happy with the value we received and will definitely be back.
Of course they have regular weddings-it is an ideal location,but while there were two weddings during our stay, they were never intrusive and indeed added to the unique atmosphere!
Well done and thanks to all at The Dunadry.

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room overlooking gardens.

I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend for three nights whilst visiting Northern Ireland for my friend's wedding. We chose this hotel as this is where the reception was being held.

The room itself was very large - probably too large to be honest. All of the furniture was down one end of the room with the tv mounted on the wall and a dresser underneath. However, the room was clean and tidy and welcoming, as was the bathroom. The bathroom was also rather large but again, clean and tidy and perfectly functional.

The communal areas of the hotel were reasonably well kept but could have done with a bit of TLC in places. The building used to be an old cotton mill or something similar, and there are pictures on the wall of the building in its early days. The supports for the landings are actually made out of parts of the old machines which we thought was a nice touch.

The bar area is comfortable and, whilst cosy, not hugely private as it was essentially part of the reception area with the bar on one side and all the tables and chairs on the other. There is also a conservatory which was very pleasant to sit in and have a drink. The grounds of the hotel are also quite pleasant, but somewhat small.

The staff were friendly enough and helped if asked.

Breakfast was the usual buffet of continental style breakfast combined with a full fry up. The breakfast was not too bad at all and there was no problem with paying two or even three visits to the buffet.

The wedding reception itself was very good. The food was very good and plentiful, and staff were very helpful and obliging (one was even happy to get involved in some japery aimed at the groom). We did not eat a 'normal meal' at the hotel, opting to go across the road to Ellie Mays, but if the food in the restaurant was as good as that at breakfast and the wedding reception, I am sure the restaurant would be worth a visit.

The only thing we were slightly disappointed with was that the swimming pool and gym were in a seperate blading from the main hotel. We had been planning on having a swim one day but we discovered that the gym and pool were housed in a seperate building at the entrance to the car park to the hotel which required a walk from the hotel itself and through the car park.

All in all, a good comfortable hotel.

Recently stayed at Dunadry Hotel for 3 nights and very much enjoyed the experience. The staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful, could not fault them. Overall the reception area is a bit dated but had charm which I personally liked but may not appeal to others, really nice place to stay. The rooms we had were spacious and spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable and we slept very well although the rooms could benefit from having fans as I found it warm at night even though we left the small windows open. The towels were clean and very soft, changed everyday, plenty of soap, shower gel etc. supplied. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family and would definitely stay there again. Could not complain about the food breakfast and dinner was delicious and plenty of choice.

To the staff:- Keep up the good work and thank you for making our stay so pleasant.

I stayed here a couple of nights on a coach tour, it is reasonably comfortable, but there were weddings on both days and these obviously take priority. At dinner we had to wait 20 minutes before our order was taken and then another twenty minutes before we were served. The menu for coach parties is somewhat restricted, I am sure the wedding guests fared better

On the recommendation of the lady at the tourist desk at Belfast City Airport, we came here for lunch. Even allowing for the fact that there was a wedding going on at the same time, the service we received was poor, indifferent and bordering on hostile. We were moved from location to location, eventually being housed in the bistro area - charmless and devoid of atmosphere. We were not given the requested bar meal menu (what we asked for on arrival). The salmon was overcooked suggesting the chef was making sure it was fully defrosted, the sauce with it was red muck. The vegetables with the oriental duck were soggy and inedible. The avocado and chicken salads were what I would expect an uninformed teenager to produce - shredded iceberg and a few tomatoes. The pine nuts provided no relief to the tedium of the plate. The best part of the meal were the CocaColas and the best part of the meal was knowing we would never return. If you like your food to represent all that was bad about cooking in the 1970s and if you like your service to be curt and if you like to feel as though you, the customer, are getting in the way, you will love this place! For the rest of us, drive on past. And don't seek the help from the information dest at Belfast City Airport.
