Good value. well run, well kept place. Rooms are good, tourist hotel style, nice and comfortable with a good sofa, unfussy, relaxing.Twin beds wheel to the other side of the room if desired. Bar good, restaurant has very nice food at good value. The staff were polite and efficient. The outside tables by the bar are a great idea for drinking or bar snacks or meals. The bar meals, restaurant 3 course meals and breakfasts were all very good, and reasonably priced. We were offerred a really good value 3 course dinner when we checked in. Mum, who is very fussy about coffee, thought the coffees were delicious (so did I).
It's a lovely, calm golf estate, though there is nearly nothing nearby (The Templeton hotel, bar and restaurant is about 20 minutes walk away if you want a change, and that's about it). It's not hard to get taxis, to Antrim, or wherever - one day we travelled to Ballyrobert and back by taxi for an attraction and then dinner. Trains to Belfast stop at Antrim, and the airport to city bus stops in Templepatrick, though the stop is around 30 minutes from the hotel door if wheeling luggage, longer if carrying. Though this is an all night bus at hourly intervals, which means you could enjoy Belfast nightlife and return to the hotel at any time without paying 20 to 30 pounds for a taxi from the city.
A great draw, and reason to stay, is the health and leisure centre - very good. Great, big poolside, cool jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, nice gym and a big swimming pool. It's easy to like all of this and easy to use. For those who play golf, I guess it's the same there, plus there is a good driving range which I found a bit tempting.
It's really a retreat place, or an airport hotel a good sized distance from the airport terminal itself, as there's nothing to do other than relax, go to the leisure centre, drink, walk or play golf.
And that nothing to do, but for those things, is a big attraction, being near the big smoke of Belfast.
I consider giving it 5 stars out of 5 for value and pleasantness, only that it's just a tiny, tiny bit plain or sterile, but amn't I being too critial also? I don't know. OK, in this context, maybe plain is the best compliment. And maybe it is worth 5 stars, I don't know.
Highly recommended hotel, though.
