“Average Stay- Nothing too special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2010

Had looked at reviews of this hotel prior to booking and was really looking forward to my stay. Unfortunately, our stay was average. The rooms were spacious and clean and the location ideal but the restauratn staff were unaccomodating. We tried to book dinner on arrival and the very polite receptionist said to contact the restaurant. I went in and asked to book a table for 2 for later that evening and response being ' we're full' - I understand that they could have been busy but no I'm sorry, are you a resident etc... We did opt to dine elsewhere in 55 North and it was amazing.... Its a pity how one member of staff can let a full establishment down... Pity!!!! But I wouldn't return. Plenty of lovely places tp stay here...

Had a very relaxing short break in a very welcoming family hotel. Good food and friendly service, especially enjoyed the pampering in the Massage and Beauty Room.. Would highly recommend a visit to Marie for a de-stress and professional treatment.

Stayed sun&mon night and had upgraded for a very reasonable £10 to king room with seaview in advance just in case they were taken.was well worth it. There is fairly busy on street parking but there are plenty of free secure car parks and spaces within a short walk.

The owner like myself is gluten intolerant and the chef personally came into bistro to see me and arranged a delicious special breakfast for the 2 mornings, inc gluten free sausages and potato bread which i havent been able to eat for years!!!

Bistro is very well priced and although our break included a meal, we booked both nights with a window table. Modern contempory decor and chill out music and very good service and choice of wines.The bistro was busy too with general customerspassing by, even though it was a quiet sunday and monday evening.

Very cosy personal hotel but not intrusive.very comfy lounge with a big open fire and leather settees where you can sit and have a drink and much to my hubbys pleasure...access to the remote control!!

The chef also left me several gluten free menus at reception which really added to the personal touch.

I cannot comment on non seaview rooms as i did not see these but i am certain the standard would still be high.

Will definitely return.

Booked the Adelphi on the 15th Feb for 3 nights commencing 16 Feb. Asked for a sea view room.
I have often passed the Adelphi but had never been inside.
Upon arrival we were checked in by a very pleasant young lady who offered us assistance with luggage.
We used the lift and found the room after a short search. The lift does not open onto corridors as in a purpose built hotel. Bear in mind it has been converted from a guest house so even though there is a lift you may still have a few steps to undertake, But not too many.
The room was right at the front and had the sea view. It was well appointed and had an excellent bathroom. On two of the evenings we were there for some reason the central heating to our radiators went off at about 5.30P.M
A phone call to reception resolved the problem on both evenings. The standard of breakfasts varied over our 3 days. The Ulster Fry was poor and appeared to be prepared in the deep fat fryer.
I have found this so often in hotels in Northern Ireland. An Ulster Fry tastes so much better properly prepared with as little fat/cooking oil as possible. Visitors leave with such a bad impression of the Ulster Fry. I have read and heard about it so often. There was a choice of other hot food which was much better.
We ate in on 1 evening and it was good.
I had been worried about parking as there is no hotel car park. I had no problem parking in the street. Bear in mind this was February so low season. It may be different in summer.
One advantage is the number of restaurants within walking distance of the Adelphi if you fancy a change. Two are within 30 seconds and others 5-6mins walk.
The Adelphi is run slightly different from a hotel as it does not appear to be registered as a hotel. For example the reception operates 9.00A.M.-9.00P.M. There is a number to ring in cases of emergency outside these hours. This probably contacts the owners who live on the premises.
Upon our return to the Adelpli at night at approx 9.15P.M. the front door was locked the bar appeared to be closed and nobody was about. Entry is easily gained with your bedroom access card which also operates the front door when locked.
The Adelpli was kept neat and tidy and was the best price in the area.
Our room and bathroom were kept very clean. First class shower in the bathroom.
I would recommend the Adelphi and will stay again.

This was our second time staying here. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with everything you needed. Tried out the spa and jacuzzi which was absolutely great and so relaxing. Food was was really good and great value. All the staff were friendly and made you feel very welcome. We would thoroughly recommend it and will definitely be back again.

The Adelphi is a clean and well presented hotel. The staff are excellent and very friendly. Spa is an added bonus, but beauty treatments need to be booked well in advance. It is an ecxellent location, within walking distance of the bars and restaurants. We ate in the hotel, food is served in generous portiions and staff are willing to adapt the menu to cater for vegetarians. A good value hotel - well worth a visit.

We stayed at the Adelphi over a weekend - great rate, very friendly staff including an excellent beauty therapist offering a wide range of treatments. The food was just 'ok', nothing special - difficult with the Ramore Wine Bar just down the road but still not an excuse not to improve a little on their food. For example, my husband ordered fillet steak medium and got it well done and there were only a handful of people in the restaurant - not good enough. Apart from food, an excellent base to explore the Antrim coast and would definitely stay there again. Only other complaint was that its not worth paying to upgrade to a room at the front of the hotel as the noise on a Saturday night after the local nightclub ends was horrific. In general though, lovely hotel.
