I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend for three nights whilst visiting Northern Ireland for my friend's wedding. We chose this hotel as this is where the reception was being held.
The room itself was very large - probably too large to be honest. All of the furniture was down one end of the room with the tv mounted on the wall and a dresser underneath. However, the room was clean and tidy and welcoming, as was the bathroom. The bathroom was also rather large but again, clean and tidy and perfectly functional.
The communal areas of the hotel were reasonably well kept but could have done with a bit of TLC in places. The building used to be an old cotton mill or something similar, and there are pictures on the wall of the building in its early days. The supports for the landings are actually made out of parts of the old machines which we thought was a nice touch.
The bar area is comfortable and, whilst cosy, not hugely private as it was essentially part of the reception area with the bar on one side and all the tables and chairs on the other. There is also a conservatory which was very pleasant to sit in and have a drink. The grounds of the hotel are also quite pleasant, but somewhat small.
The staff were friendly enough and helped if asked.
Breakfast was the usual buffet of continental style breakfast combined with a full fry up. The breakfast was not too bad at all and there was no problem with paying two or even three visits to the buffet.
The wedding reception itself was very good. The food was very good and plentiful, and staff were very helpful and obliging (one was even happy to get involved in some japery aimed at the groom). We did not eat a 'normal meal' at the hotel, opting to go across the road to Ellie Mays, but if the food in the restaurant was as good as that at breakfast and the wedding reception, I am sure the restaurant would be worth a visit.
The only thing we were slightly disappointed with was that the swimming pool and gym were in a seperate blading from the main hotel. We had been planning on having a swim one day but we discovered that the gym and pool were housed in a seperate building at the entrance to the car park to the hotel which required a walk from the hotel itself and through the car park.
All in all, a good comfortable hotel.
