We stayed at the Culloden on the weekend of our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's a spectacular hotel with breathtaking views over the bay to Carrickfergus from our suite. The food is delicious and the service everything you would expect in a five star hotel As a bonus there was an art exhibition on with many original sculptures all around the grounds. I couldn't recommend the Culloden strongly enough.

Not the best day to see the art in the garden exhibition as there was torrential rain! But lots to see inside - great works of art especially Warhol, Dali, perry and Banksy to name but a few ! A quiet day prob because of the weather but really worth the trip- it’s free! The hotel staff were very helpful and a beautiful hotel - haven’t been in the Culloden for a while but will be back soon.

Hard to believe but this much puffed five star hotel only serves lunch on Sundays! I guess you can get a voucher for McDonalds from reception....What justification is there for five stars when you don’t open for lunch? Weird and perhaps not untypical of what once passed for ‘quality’ in yesterday’s Northern Ireland. Happily, things have moved on

Dear Guest, I am somewhat puzzled by your review as we serve lunch on a daily basis in our Lough Bar and in The Cultra Inn on the grounds of the estate. We also have Zest Cafe which is available in our Spa for guests who are using the facilities or having a treatment there. Therefore I would be grateful if you would contact me directly if I can be of any assistance or offer further clarification. With kind regards, Garrett Power General Manager

I was lucky to be able to spend a few nights in your wonderful hotel, from the moment we checked in to the sad moment we had to check out, we could have stayed longer if possible but we had to journey home. The hotel and grounds are so beautiful, the atmosphere in the hotel is so relaxing, peaceful and tranquil it is a haven for people who need to get away and relax. Our room 715 was set in the old building and it was so luxurious, clean and comfortable. I had the pleasure of having a fabulous treatment in the Spa and i have to say the therapist SARAH i may have got her name wrong, was lovely. I have to say that the highlight of our stay was dining in the CULTRA INN, what can i say HELEN and entire team are a credit to your hotel and the reception we got every time we went in there was great, they were so accommodating and enthusiastic. the food was delicious so good we ate there both nights of our stay. I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone and we are planning to go back again before the summer is over.

Great room great food and lovely touches. On our second visit to the culloden this June it must only described as a completely perfect visit. We arrived to an upgrade to a suite which had the most amazing views, this time around we managed to have a gym session and it must be said the gym is outstanding. A great range of equipment, machines and air-conditioned! We also had another dip in the pool which was fabulous under the sun. We arrived back to our room to a lovely welcome and a few chocolates as shown in the pictures. We had dinner in the cultra Inn which was fantastic and breakfast was just as good. Everything on offer and they make a great pot of tea!! . I think after this visit it's hard to say anything other than this hotel has so much to offer & has become one of our favourites. It had a gorgeous wedding in full flow along with a large bus group of tourists but they still managed to make us feel special. We shall be back.
