“Good value for money”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We have went for one of the midweek deals offered for a one night stay, breakfast and activities in nearby Irish country quads. The hotel was very clean and quiet. The outdoor hot tub was fantastic! And the activities (rifle shooting and quad biking) were lots of fun! We also ended up having dinner in the lounge. The food was nice and service was friendly. Would definitely recommend both the hotel and Irish county quads.

I stayed here last weekend for a wedding. My stay coincided with the hotel's 30th anniversary celebrations which added to the experience. My room was lovely - huge & comfortable bed. Breakfast was good. The wedding reception was very well done - nice room, excellent food & good service. Highly recommended.

I stayed at this hotel where we were fortunate to get a last minute room. The food was excellent and the service extremely good. The room was at the back of the hotel not much of a view but I guess the upside of that was the lovely quiet room. The only reason i docked 1 star, was because i found the duvet cover in particular to be well passed its sell by date, it felt very rough and was very pilled and bally. I really would have appreciated bottled water in the room too, only a small thing I know but its the lil things that count.

Thank you for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your recent stay with us.

I have passed your comment about the bed linen on to our Accommodation Manager who is disappointed to read this as she takes pride of the work that she and her team do in the housekeeping department of the Hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to inform us of this as it is only through comments such as this we can strive to improve the facilities offered to all our guests here at the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa.

As a birthday treat, myself and a friend booked in on the "Girls night out" special. From start to finish we had a great overnight stay. Friendly, efficient staff - spacious, spotless room - good food - entertainment in bar - great spa facilities. Although the hotel was really busy during our stay, with weddings and a christening taking place, we were looked after well in all areas of the hotel without delay. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your lovely comments in relation to your recent stay. It is lovely for all the staff here to see that their hard work and dedication is recognised by customers.

We have recently extended our Serenity Spa adding 2 more treatment rooms and extending our changing facilities and our relaxation room. This area is definately worth another visit on any future trips.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa soon.

We have stayed in the Carrickdale a few times, our children love the way you have to walk "under" the road,lol to get to the swimming pool. Our dinner was lovely, plenty of it and we did'nt have to wait long for it, only one downfall we waited 20min for our empty plates to be removed in the end we had to ask. Apart from that we would definately recommend this hotel,thanks,x

I stayed with my wife and three small kids. Family room worked well, cot provided. Pool was great. Staff are all nice and helpful. Beautiful gardens for a walk.
The cooked breakfast was the only thing letting this hotel down. My wife and I tried it three mornings but it was disappointing, no taste.
Hotel is in a great location adjacent to the motorway with plenty of car parking.
We enjoyed our stay!

I have passed on your comments in relation to your breakfast to our Head Chef who is monitoring this area to ensure there is not a repeat of this.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa in the near future.

My family and I once stopped for tea at the Carrickdale. The staff are friendly and very well organised, they had everything set out on the table. They didn't even charge us for extras! The food was so fresh and mouthwatering. If you want to stop somewhere between Belfast and Dublin, then the Carrickdale is your answer!
