Glenavon House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Cookstown
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2006

Following our engagement we spent some time deciding where to hold our wedding reception. Having contacted many hotels and having been treated like just another pound sign it was refreshing to deal with the staff at the Glenavon hotel. Being an Irish girl living and planning a wedding from England and bringing seventy or so guests back to my home country I wanted everything to be perfect and it was! From the first time we spoke to the Glenavon to the months, weeks and days leading up to the wedding we were treated like the only couple on the planet getting married. The weekend of the wedding was superb. The Glenavon went out of their way to welcome each and every guest. The food was exellent, The drink was top class and not too pricey, there was even magners on tap. The facilities at the Glenavon from the hairdressers to the pool were second to none and were well used and raved about by all the guests at the wedding. In reflection of our time at the Glenavon the thing that stands out most for us is the way we were treated by the staff. Even though theGlenavon is a large hotel with all of the bonuses that come with that, you still feel that you are the only guests there. All of our guests both from Ireland and from England had a fantastic time, and for many of our English guests it was their first trip to Ireland but it wont be their last or their last trip to the Glenavon. I am going to stop typing now because I could rave forever. We have been left with very fond memories and cannot wait for a return visit to the Glenavon Hotel.

We were invited to a wedding at Glenavon Hotel and to tell you the truth I wasn't looking forward to it having read the review on this website Sept 6th ( I think? )

On arrival we received a very friendly welcome, help with the kids, luggage etc.. our rooms were lovely - 2 overlooked the river and one the grounds at the front of the hotel. The rooms were first class - comfortable, clean and well appointed.

We had a meal in the restaurant the first night and attended a wedding the second day - all meals, breakfast included were first class. Staff extremely friendly, atmosphere excellent - bit smoky in bar area the first night but restaurant was completly smoke free so we stayed there!

The Leisure Centre is second to none that I have used for cleanliness, facilities - you can actually swim in the pool!!!

Another weekend in the spring is a cert!

We stayed at the Glenavon hotel for three nights last week. Four of us stayed to attend a wedding on the Friday night but decided to extend the stay. When we arrived on the Thursday afternoon, we were checked-in and given our room numbers ( rooms 3 & 4). These were directly upstairs in the main building. The rooms smelled really awful - stale smoke. Went back to reception and said we had requested no smoking rooms but were told that they didn't have any. The receptionist gave us the keys to some other rooms so we could see if any smelled better than the others and we eventually found two that were "tolerable" - just! We were not offered rooms in the part of the hotel above the leisure facilities. The rooms in the main building have no views at all, even though they state in their brouchure that most of the rooms overlook the river - some of the rooms even had frosted glass in the main window. Our room overlooked the flat roof of the function room and opposite will soon be the new rooms of the extention looking directly at you! Also, the rooms are quite shabby. What they failed to tell us was that the rooms upstairs from reception are above the function rooms (especially rooms 1-9) and when the weddings were in full swing on the Friday and the Saturday nights, sleep was impossible. The disco directly under our room was finally turned off just before 2 am. It was so loud you could hear the words of the songs and people laughing and talking - like they were in your room (surely there cannot be sound-proofing). On the plus side the hotel was clean and the all staff were very good. We had a nice meal in the Cellar bar downstairs and the swimming pool, gym, etc. are very good. There is a new extension being built but there was no noise or problems caused by that and it should be lovely when it is finished. But again, they have built a function room with bedrooms directly above it! Hope the sound-proofing is better in the new bit.
