Armagh City Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Armagh
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

A very nice hotel. I stayed one night after a wedding. The wedding meal was excellent and the service well managed with no long delays where tables were waiting for food while others were nearly finished. The room was large with an equally large bed. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The breakfast was good. The hotel is only a short walk from the city centre. There is plenty of parking space within the hotel grounds.

stayed here for 2 nights on a b/b dinner for our short honeymoon our first room had a bad smell as we were mostly in the room i asked to be moved as the hotel was fully booked the reception said only room was a noisy room the duty manager came to see us owen sorry about the spelling,gave us a great room and great customer service, the breakfast is one of the best i have had and the dinner was the beautiful and plentiful top marks to chef.would come back and recommend. hope to return for our 1st Anniversary.

Room Tip: you can only use leisure facilities between 3-5pm with a voucher from reception.

stayed here for one night.
i was staying to explore the area and it was the obvious choice hotel.
lobby was open and welcoming but i found check in a bit dutiful , all that taking credit cards and the like and paying up front , i don't think it gives a pleasant experience.
however its common now among the mid range hotels so its not a singular complaint against this hotel.
room was okay , standard really but had a nice balcony albeit it over the car park but some views in the distance, wasn't impressed with the room being advertised as having views of the cathedral , this is not true , you may just catch a glimpse of it far off in the distance.
everything was a described(bar the view) and all functional so no real complaints.
i stayed for dinner and again that was okay , a decent menu but the dish i ordered was mediocre, nothing exceptional just okay.
the bar area was the same , few undesirable local types littered the bar area , very loud and i was asked the highly annoying questions designed to elicit what religion i was , this is unacceptable to me and really annoyed me. however the bar staff were very friendly and helpful. i think the town of armagh doesn't have much of a selection of bars so locals drank here.
breakfast was very good , usual irish breakfast done well and hot and of higher than average quality.
tried the swimming pool and it was like checking in , more emphasis on business than making a guest feel welcome.
for example , loads of signs saying you can only use the pool once? whereby you pay after for each visit and i had to be buzzed in and fill out forms and prove i was a resident and show my card etc etc. just not an experience i am used to and for a hotel charging close to £100 sterling a night i would like to use the spa facilities as often as i like with as little fuss as possible.
all in all an ok hotel but really felt it was a bit flat , lacking something , not a great vibe at all.
wasnt cheap either so that doesnt help and i would of expected a better standard of hospitality.

Room Tip: bring your binoculars for the "fantastic" views of the cathedral

Just back from 2nights B&B with 1 evening meal and believe me what a great Hotel...Food in both restaurant and bar were of the highest order. Our room was modern,spacious clean and very comfy. Staff more than helpful and all very pleasant. We used the LA fitness area and found it also a very enjoyable experience. The pool,jacuzzi and steam room were fantastic we're could have spent a lot more time there except my only gripe of the whole hotel visit was you are only permitted one visit to the leisure facilities which was such a shame compared to other hotels we have used in the past were you have unlimited use..... Overall we loved our stay here and would highly recommend a visit if you get the chance. Sam

Room Tip: Rooms at front you may hear a little traffic from main road but nothing to disturb you nights sleep.

The restaurant here is excellent. Lots of choice, attentive staff and really good value.We stopped in from a shopping trip and had starters ,steak main course and drinks for less than £40. This is the standard price not early specials or anything. Plenty of room no real need to book.
