“Weekend Break Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Well I cannot say enough about this hotel. The rooms and dining are excellent. The staff are superb, friendly, helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels in London. I can honesty say, none of them match this on value, quality and service. A superb stay. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds, very peaceful.

Room Tip: Book an Executive Double - you wont be disappointed and very good value for money.

Great stay at claneboye hotel. Most comfortable bed ever experienced in any hotel. We stayed on suite. The staff were excellent and breakfast 5*. The evening meal had limited choice but was very tasty. Can't wait to go back.

We are back for the third time and I have to say this is an excellent place to stay - just outside Bangor. The food is superb, service outstanding and it is well positioned if you want yo visit Cultra, Bangor, Titanic etc. We would highly recommend a stay at the Clandeboye you will not be disappointed :)

Oh boy!!
What a fantastic time we had on Christmas Day, 2012.
The food was superb, the staff excellent, the service with a smile was delightful. The singer hit the spot precisely with a perfect mix of songs, all at the right volume.
From start to finish, Ian and his events team made this a perfect day.
If I could give them a thousand stars I would.
Well done to all the staff there and many, many thanks to them for such a wonderful experience.

I had my wedding reception here in January 2013 and cannot recommend it enough. The events team and particularly Iain could not have been more professional - nothing was too much bother. They took all stress out of planning the wedding and understand that it is the little details that matter to bridal couples.

We had our reception in the Blackwood suite (40 guests) and everyone commented how beautiful it was. I asked to have lots of candles on the tables and they arranged them beautifully. Much better than I had even envisioned.

We had the chicken breast with a mushroom sauce, panache of vegetables with roast and mashed potatoes. The food was superb, I would be very happy with the meal if I ordered it in a restaurant. I was not just your typical mass produced wedding meal and you could tell that the staff cared that you enjoyed it. In fact the service from all staff throughout the wedding (and the planning) exceeded anything I have experienced in Northern Ireland before.

Quite a few of my guests had travelled and stayed at the Clandeboye the night before as well as the night of the wedding and all commented what a beautiful hotel and comfortable sleep they had.

So all in all I found the Clandeboye faultless and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of having their wedding reception there.

I arranged my company's Christmas party for one if Clandeboye Lodge party nights. There were 24 in our party and not one person had a bad thing to say! The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the entertainment top notch. Most of our party did not leave the dance floor. I would highly recommend the Clandeboye for their Christmas parties but also as a party venue in general

Where to start? We held our civil partnership in the clandeboye on the 7th Dec 2012, the service and treatment we received from start to finish was excellent. We had the ceremony in the Blackwood suite, followed by the reception also held in Blackwood suite. Chris was always on hand to ensure that we were both happy with how things were going, the attention to detail was amazing, I can honestly say we were treated like royalty! The food was excellent, I went around after the meal and I struggled to find a plate with food left on it, all the guests have said how lovey it was and also how it was nice to receive a meal at a wedding served HOT.

We stayed the night before and asked if we could have the honeymoon suite for both nights to save moving on the wedding day, this was dealt with and given to us without a problem, the room itself is gorgeous and has everything you would need however please note lighting not great if you are having make-up or hair done in your room, we did however manage.

My now wife ;) is vegan, a special menu was given to her by the restaurant staff with plenty of choices available for dinner, this was a very special and unexpected touch.

Would like to also pay a special thanks to Ian and gia from events who also helped along the way with the planning, they really know how to put on a good show and they both do the hotel proud.

If your thinking of getting married, be sure to pay the clandeboye a visit, you will not be disappointed, and you will not regret choosing the clandeboye.

Thank you all for playing a big part in making our special day perfect.
Louise and Lisa Milliken-Orr ;)
