Warm welcome as you would expect from a Premier Inn, this one is situated beside the marina and Carrickfergus Castle - lovely. Right beside are diners, cinema, shops and historical interests. Restaurant beside Premier Inn lovely, food brill and accessible inside so no getting wet running for breakfast!
Bed lovely, slept like a log, room had own temp. control, everything clean and for an asthma sufferer like me, no dust, perfumes, smoke smells etc anywhere so I could sleep well..
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, panoramic views for any room.

We stayed in the Premier Inn last November en route to a family funeral and it served our purposes right to a tee. We arrived in Ulster on a late boat to Larne, but check in was no problem. Time for a late drink, then a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast. Lovely outlook to an armada of boats and the famous Carrickfergus Castle. It would be a great centre for touring as it is not far from Belfast, but nicely away from the big city if you want peace. We will very probably use it again soon in happier circumstances.

Title says it all,

I Was over through work and struggling to find accomodation in my normal hotels so i took a chance on this premier inn as it had the 4 nights i needed

Pleased to say it fitted the bill perfectly and certainly wont be my last stay, The location was fantastic with the pub garden @ 10 yards from the harbours edge and the castle as a backdrop

Staff in the premier inn and adjoining pub/restaurant were cheerfull and friendly and a credit to premier inn

Room Tip: I would ask for a room overlooking the harbour/castle if there are any the next time i stay as mine...

The hotel is not easy to spot from the main road - it is next to the Castle and harbour but hidden behind Sainsburys. The satnav took us to the roundabout but we circled twice before we saw the Premier Inn sign.
The location right next to the Harbour and Castle is excellent. Full "English" Breakfast and dinner from the pub menu were both good - and there are other restaurant options nearby.
The room was standard Premier Inn - clean, quiet. Staff in both hotel and restaurant were friendly and attentive.
Carrickfergus is an excellent base to start the the coast road up to the Giant's Causeway. We arrived on an early morning flight, picked up the hire car and were in Carrickfurgus by 9:30am. As the weather was good we decided to head up to the Causeway the same day - with sightseeing stops along the way we had a good day out and were back in the hotel by 7pm and dinner.

This was a motorbike trip away with four friends and we found the hotel to be in a great location.The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast and evening meal was very enjoyable but the overwhelming factor was the extremely friendly, professional and couldn't do more for you staff. We would definately stay here again.
