Had wedding in the Ballymac hotel on 21st Aug. Wat a great bunch of people. Put on a brilliant service, food the lot for us. Even for breakfast this morning 22nd Aug. The lady couldnt do enough for us. All the tea and coffee we wanted. Cereal of all varietys, fruit juice and a cooked breakfast how you like it. Lady behind reception is a lovely girl and great ambrassitor for that hotel. The rooms are quite pricey but well worth it!!!!

Room Tip: In room 3 was great size double

I stayed in this hotel in July 2012 for one night celebrating a wedding. The room was great value for money also, only £70 for a double room which is great. Its in a nice quiet location outside Belfast. The food was great here and the rooms were very spacious. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable! The entire building is kept and maintained very well. The hotel is only a few miles from the Belfast international airport also. Overall the staff were lovely, grounds of the hotel beautiful and stay was great.

If you come from the international airport to lisburn you will pass the ballymac hotel, A lovely sedated picturesque hotel surrounded by greenery and flowers , we stopped here to sample the food one sunday afternoon and went into the bar area, We were served very quickly and ordered a large jug of orange for my two girls and i , and a wine for the wife ( i was driving ) we browsed the menue and i chose half a chicken with ham @ stuffing with 2 sides they are in the price, i picked mushrooms and chips , it was delicious and came with a lovely boat of gravey the mushrooms were the button ones and were overflowing the bowl , i ate the lot lol. my wife had steak ciabatta with red onion salad and chips she thought it was lovely , my eldest daughter had thai green curry and rice but thought it very hot and lacking in taste , needed lot of salt she said , the youngest girl had the kids menue with chicken coujons and mash potatoes and loved it all the bill with no starters , no deserts and one wine ,one jug dilluted orange was £43 which i thought was reasonable apart from the price of the jug of orange , i think it should be no more than £2.50 they do a great sizzling steak here and its well worth trying it out
