A beautiful older building in an ideal location. Helpful & friendly staff, the food was excellent (the steaks are a must try). Clean & tasteful, we`ll definitely be back!

We travelled to Banbridge on family business and booked this hotel for its location.
From booking through to checking-out, the service was superb.
On booking we were made aware that as we were arriving on aSaturday evening that the double room we wanted was above the bar which had live music,therefore,would have been noisy. We were recommended a twin room which would be less noisy.
The room was perfect, although we did hear some noise, it did not disturb us.
The breakfast was superb and lasted us till evening. Our evening meal was also good and the service second to none as were the prices.
Our room was replenished and cleaned to very high standards and the staff were friendly and so helpful. What's more, the tariff was very reasonable and although it is classed as a two star,in our opinion it deserves at least another one.

I stayed here on my way to Newry and would recommend the Downshire arms for combining old-style hospitality and charm with efficiency and comfort. The rooms are big and spotless and amenities include kettle, biscuits, chocolates (!) and bottled water, as well as all the satellite channels you could need. The bathrooms are well supplied, there is secure parking and one of the friendliest bars. There is free wifi for guests and the food is modern bistro style. This hotel has bags of charm and personality, yet it is ultra-clean and comfortable. I would certainly choose this lovely hotel again in preference to faceless corporate 4-stars in Newry.

We stayed here as we were going to the Outlet and so decided to make a weekend out of it. The hotel staff are excellent. Rooms were lovely and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was second to none. The parking was also great. Very safe and gates were locked at night. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend to other travellers. Great value for money.
