The restaurant manager Jo catered for our family of 20 people at very short notice and all the staff in the courtyard bar where so friendly. It was my mothers 70th birthday and the headfort arms made it very special. We will be back again. Thanks very much

What made our stay here more memorable was the friendly staff throughout.
The receptionist, bar tenders, and our breakfast he next morning. We even got free tea to our room at 1am with biscuits.
This hotel was lovely and friendly and I would recommend a stay here.

the Headfort catered for us as a large group, all staff were exceptionally helpful, they were accommodating as we over ran their foyer. The food was super and all left with happy memories and am sure we would return if we were in the area

We stayed for two nights at this hotel recently. The staff were lovely, the food good, and the rooms very clean and comfortable. In every aspect but one, we enjoyed our stay.

Unfortunatley our room was above the area that the staff use for smoking, chatting, shouting, slamming doors and more. On both nights, at arond 0300 the noise started and did not stop until c0430. Despite calls to the Night Porter (not always easy to get him) the noise continued.
We checked with other people on the same side of the corrisor as us, and each confimred the problem. (Even Reception confirmed that odd-numbered rooms have that problem!)
Reception were very nice about it and gave us a small refund.
Better to sort it out though!

I was one of the hunting ladies who stayed last weekend November 2013. The staff were most welcoming and extremely accommodating as I had special requirements. They looked after us and our belongings to a high standard and I felt a very warm welcome. Would love to go back given the opportunity. Thanks to all xx
