Listen to a wonderful selection of beautiful classical music in the background. Plush carpet means you can hear yourself talk - excellent if taking someone hard of hearing... More

We had a most beautiful room described as executive double. The bed was really comfortable. The room was spacious and spotless. Turn down service with chocolates each evening. Staff were very friendly and the whole atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The grounds are magnificent. We had dinner in the Cultra Inn which was excellent with very attentive and friendly staff....

We recently spent the weekend of our wedding here with family and friends. Although the wedding itself was not at the hotel, the staff and management treated us like it was. A fantastic and luxurious establishment only 5 minutes drive from the city airport and 10 minutes from central Belfast. Old school luxury paired with attentive service and beautifully appointed...
