“Comfortable, and friendly. Wifi rubbish.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is situated next to the marina and has free car-parking next to and near the hotel. However, the car park opposite is one you have to pay for. The room was good, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok though the service was a little slow. My only disappointment were the wifi facilities which you really could only get in the lobby. It was also very expensive being charged £10 for 24hrs, most of the time I couldn't pick it up in my room. So many people need good wifi facilities these days that good reception in all rooms is essential hence why I've marked this down to 'average'

I recently got a groupon voucher for 2 sirlon steaks with sides and glasses of wine for £22.50 on groupon, which was amazing value! In my opinion the hotel needs updating the lobby carpet etc but I wasn't staying in the hotel was just passing through to reach the first floor restaurant which over looks Bangor marina lovely at night time! We were seated and were served our glasses of wine and then left alone for over 10 minutes before we could order our steaks how we liked! But when our food came it was worth the wait large sirlons with garlic chips onion rings and Diane sauce fabulous! Worth a visit for a steak!

Thanks Zobo1 for taking the time to record your feedback Trip. The Groupon Promo on selected dates has proved to be a tremendous success. We realise that the mix of terrific value with great surroundings is indeed hard to match in these days of austerity. Your review proves that the great experience will ensure the return customer.

Dear Suzanne w, thank you for taking the time to post your helpful feedback on Trip. As a repeat guest your are in a position to review how consistent our standard of service and quality of customer care is evident on each visit. It is great to hear you enjoy our 'hearty' breakfast, it is indeed hard to beat, the early morning vista to the Marina. Look forward to seeing you return in May.

It's a very nice hotel, clean and well presented, as everywhere in Northern Ireland the staff are very friendly and always willing to help. The rooms are modern and of a high standard, the beds are very comfortable. Recommended

A Christmas getaway - out side the building looks odd, the ground floor given over to a pub. However the staff were great and ensured we were looked after. Our room was a top floor room with a sea view. Clean tidy and well presented. We had a great evening meal with good food and helpful staff. Booking a window table proved easy getting it required a little more effort. The pool etc was again clean and great to use with excellent staff again. Only thing is don't pay the £30 for the sparkling wine rose petals and choc . Not good value. However the over all price charged for dinner bed and breakfast was great value and I would gladly return

A group of 10 girls held our Christmas party here. The food was served when your party was ready for it- not when the whole room had sat down which was great. The food was piping hot, large portions and extras such as gravy boats for the turkey. Service was good and the bar was easy to get served it- also very reasonable offers on bottles of wine. DJ was good and played requests- also had a photo booth. (£2pp) which added fun. Would defo go back. As said in a few comments the hotel is looking a little dated but otherwise we had a great night!

Many thanks Lynsey K, for the time taken to post your kind positive feedback on Trip. This year the team worked hard to ensure everyone enjoyed the 'craic' on the Party evenings. The mix of good food ,music and efficient service is indeed hard to beat. It is not always possible to ensure this result each time when catering for 250 to 300 revellers. We have plans for a soft re-furb in the New Year, hopefully you will approve when you return this year.

Stayed in hotel on boxing night with family no complaints about hotel more about restaurant lord nelsons we were booked in for meal at 5pm but it was 5.45pm before we got a drinks order. We ordered child's meal of fresh cod and chips but when the meal came it was 3 fish fingers and dollop of mash we complained and one lady waitress did sort it out and told us there was no cod left but said that this shouldn't have happened. I have to say that we did think it was a bit much to be charging £7.50 thk it was or £8.50 for this child's meal. Our meals came and were ok one little slice of turkey even though i didnt have the ham again I do not thk the meal was worth £24 each the child was supposed to get selection box and this did not materialise. I have to say it would not encourage me to return next year or recommend it to anyone either.

Thank you lilysteele, for taking the time to post your feedback on Trip. We are sorry that you did not feel the childrens' meal did not reflect good value for money and the portion size of the adult meals were disappointing everyone concerned wishes to be associated with my apologies. Although no consulation to you the drop in standards can be attributed to the end of a very busy day. I would be delighted to try and restore you faith in our quality of food and service. Please contact me on marinecourthotel@btconnect.com to discuss.
