Unfortunately our car needed repairs and the cost in the South was just too much and cheaper in Northern Ireland by a factor of 10. Found the Hotel by looking on Google Maps and checked out the reviews there and then decided to stay a week here with the family while the car was repaired.
Staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. The bar staff and dining room staff were fantastic and after meeting us (we were there during a quiet time), remembered who we were and what we liked. Great service and no fuss.
The food was fantastic but the portions were just way too large for us and we could not finish any of the meals. We stayed on a kids break and 3 dinners for us and the boys were included but we are not big eaters and could not manage the excellent food served.
The boys live in the hotel room if given a chance especially since the internet there was so good and fast. We nearly had to drag them away from their systems to get to see anything and to allow the cleaners to clean the room.
The pool is nice and warm and contains a steam room, jacuzzi, sauna, etc and was nicely done. There is a play time for the kids between 10 and 12 where the staff provide pool toys for the kids. Like I said, we were there during a quiet time and yet the pool was quite busy but the kids loved it and enjoyed meeting other kids staying in the hotel.
With the kids package, you also get some discounts to the nearby Arena7 and to bowling - we did not do the bowling but Arena7 is a bi of fun.
Shopping is close by. Either up town or the shopping district down the way. Both are very busy but within walking distance unless you but something. Derry is only about 30 minutes away and has great shows as well (but prices there are in Sterling, so watch out for that).
Hotel is nice and clean, staff friendly and reception was brilliant. Explained everything and pointed us in the directions we needed.
We are going back there in August for our summer holidays and hope to be able to stay about two weeks or so. We found a lot out the first time around and the second time, we hope to have even more fun and adventure there.
Loved the place and really enjoyed our stay there - what else can we say.
