“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We stayed with a group of friends for one night and from arrival until we left everything was simply perfect. John and his staff are amazing hosts and the simple little touches they provide add to the overall experience.
We stayed in the Pickering room on the third floor. The room was spacious and had every comfort including a large bathroom. The bedding was the most luxurious I have ever slept in. Toiletries from the white company are lovely and towels fluffy and luxurious.
Our meal was delicious, every course was served with great attention to detail and my fillet steak was absolutely perfect. Vegetables left you wondering what he had done to make them so tasty and the staff were happy to tell us exactly how they were cooked. The fresh breads were irresistible. Cheeses and dessert were special and service was the best one could wish for.
Breakfast also was amazing. Fresh fruit, yoghurt,compotes and the usual Ulster fry with a vegetarian option served with their free range eggs again fantastic.
Don't hesitate to come here. I'm already thinking about how I can manage a return visit.
This place is special. Thank you John and staff for a memorable stay. I didn't want to leave!!!

There is nothing about this place that you can fault. 100% satisfaction

I stayed here for just one night whilst in Craigavon on business and I really wish I had more time there

The house is stunning, both inside and out. Unfortunately we were not blessed with good weather whilst we were there, so didn't get the opportunity to explore the grounds of the house.

We were warmly welcomed by the proprietor, and every thing from that moment on was more than superb. Both owners have such a friendly approach, and really make you feel like you are welcome within their home.

I was fortunate enough to have the Hanna room, with the Four Poster bed and quaint furniture to match.
The bathroom was amazing, and so spacious!!!

The food both for dinner and breakfast was lovely, and couldn't be faulted either.

What a remarkable place, I definitely need to go back there for a longer stay.

We spent a fabulous couple of days here as a belated wedding anniversary mid week time away and had a fantastic time. Quiet and peaceful, wonderful hospitality and the food was exceptionally good. There are not many bedrooms but as a quiet place to stay with excellent cuisine it is a perfect getaway. The rooms are very tastefully laid out - an excellent get away from it retreat spot - all at a very reasonable value.

We had the pleasure of attending friends' wedding here - What can I say ? - Great location, sumptuous period surroundings, rooms and grounds. The best bit was the food. Unbelievably perfectly cooked 6 course meal. All local produce again of top quality - the cooking of which was brilliant - the turbot I could eat 7 days a week it was that good. We didn't stay here but took a tour of the rooms all of which are from Downtown Abbey (if you're from N.America I am sure you'll love it) The whole feeling is relaxed and friendly but attentive - 100 % professional.
Recommend for couples, special anniversaries, family get togethers, long weekends whatever ...it's top notch . thanks a lot for your hospitality - hope to return
