This is a nice hotel overlooking a golf course in a nice setting. The location is somewhat isolated so while a Car is hugely advantageous, I don't think it's close enough to Belfast to warrant the journey time. The Int. Airport is nearby so this would probably work if you had a flight to make.
The adjoining Fitness Centre has some great machines and the Pool/Sauna/Steam Room are good for relaxation and are well kept.
Check In was needlessly difficult (why bother having a dedicated HHonors line if you use it to check in large numbers of wedding guests?), some improvement needed here. The room we were given had a lovely view overlooking the golf course, it was clean however the bed was extremely uncomfortable and difficult to sleep on. Sleeping is made all the more difficult when Reception Staff call you at 2am asking about loud music (nope, sorry, must be the room down the hall with boisterous drunk wedding guests). Pretty poor etiquette from the hotel here.
The on site restaurant is very good, food was decent and service excellent. We did not sample breakfast so cannot comment except to say that the price was prohibitive (around £18pp if I recall). The only alternative in the immediate vicinity is a Fuel Station a few miles down the road which, again, is useless unless you are driving.
Overall we had an ok stay at this property, but there is definitely room for serious improvement if they want to attract loyal travellers alongside the inevitable wedding attendee who will probably never return. If you are in any way used to Hilton Hotels, you may find yourself disappointed at the Templepatrick which I regret to say is below par. Not terrible, just not particularly brilliant which is a shame as it's the only one of it's kind on the island (all others are in Dublin/Belfast cities in downtown areas).
We were hoping this would be better but the truth is it was fine for an overnight trip (visiting Giant's Causeway as we were) but I could not wholeheartedly recommend this for an extended stay primarily, unless you're a golfer!
