Reviewed July 18, 2013

Just spent a few days at the Glenavon House Hotel with my family. The family room we stayed in was excellant. There was ample room in it and everything we needed. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us, Rosalyn at reception went out of her way to get us information of places to go to entertain the kids, this was very helpful. On the first night we had room service which was great value and lovely food. On our second night there we all tried the Cellar Restaurant, the food was beutiful and the staff were more than pleasant and helped entertain the kids while we waited for our food. The swimming pool was also a great hit, once again the staff at the pool were very pleasant and helpful and everything the kids needed was there. To sum it up we had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning soon.

We just celebrated our wedding at the Glenavon and we cannot praise this hotel enough! They are extremely professional and helpful. I organized the wedding from the US through James. He was very easy to deal with and made the the whole daunting task much easier. When we got to Ireland he and the other staff made the whole experience wonderful. We used the Tyrone Suite for the wedding venue and this was decorated beautifully for the day. The rooms we stayed in were excellent also. Highly recommended!!!!

We had a wonderful couple of days at Glenavon Hotel in July 2013.We can't speak more highly of the reception staff, particularly Roslyn and Ann , who went out of their way to help my husband find information about his ancestors who came from the Ardboe area.They also showed a genuine interest in linking us with some of the local Ardboe contacts.Our room was exceptional - very spacious, clean and comfortable.The breakfast also offered a wide selection of cooked food and cereals. The facilities for the pool, spa and sauna were also professionally run and maintained. The hotel was very well priced for the location, facilities and services offered.We would highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Lorraine B

Thank you for your very kind comments following your recent stay in the Hotel.

We are delighted that staff were able to help you in your search for your relatives from Ardboe - Ann and Roslyn in particular were "chuffed" with their special mention. We were also pleased to learn that you were very happy with our facilities.

Once again can I thank you for taking the time to review the hotel.

Kind regards

From the moment we were greeted at Reception we knew we had made the right choice. All the staff from Housekeeping, Bar, Kitchen and Waiting staff could not have made our stay anymore prefect. Nothing was ever too much trouble, the reception staff even found out bus time tables for us! The room we had was very clean and comfortable. We have no hesitation in reccommending this hotel for 'over and above' service from execeptional friendly and professional staff.

Room Tip: Advise reception of your own requirements and they will endeavour to meet them

I had the pleasure of having my wedding reception in the Glenavon Hotel in April 2013. Everything was fantastic!!!
I had 220 guests, many from Co. Mayo so when deciding on a venue I obviously wanted to impress them and I wanted everything to be perfect for their weekend stay.
From the outset i was reassured by banqueting manager James.I didn't have to worry about a thing.He allievated any worries that i had regarding the entire weekend.All the staff were friendly and provided excellent customer service. The meal at the reception was delicious. We cannot thank the Glenavon Hotel enough. The top class service that was provided allowed myself and my husband to enjoy our special day but most importantly for me, my wedding guests are still talking about the hotel with the hope that many will return again.
