Stayed there while visiting some friends in Belfast. The grounds and view were lovely. The cocktail bar served a great mojito. The restaurant was a let down for our daughter who had a burnt pizza that looked like it was not cooked. We were served really nice food and a wonderful smoked mackerel mousse. Followed by lamb which was very nice.
Breakfast is outstanding really outstanding wonderful food sourced from around Ireland very well cooked and presented. Offered more tea/Coffee etc.
The one thing that let this hotel down was on both morning - this was a weekend in July. People were banging on the doors to wake guests up. I actually went out at 8.30am on a Sunday and asked what the emergency was such was the frenzy of knocking. It woke us all up. I told told in no uncertain terms that a group were leaving and the staff needed to take their luggage up to the tour bus. This was very annoying. £200 for a 5 star hotel a night and not being able to sleep in because of staff checking luggage out of the rooms. Very poor.
