My husband and myself booked a night here on the 3rd March as a treat and for a chance to relax.
On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist who said she would check to see if our room was ready. We said we would wait in the bar area and about 5 minutes later they returned to say the room was ready for us. ( Even though we had arrived early for check in).
On arriving in our room we were very impressed, lovely decor, massive bed and spotless! Myself and my husband have stayed in many hotels and the room was on par with some of the 4 and 5 star hotels we had stayed in.
The bar area was very nice and the staff were very pleasant and willing to help.
We decided to have a late lunch, I ordered off the deli menu and had the steak pie and chips, it was delicious! The portion was ample for me as I cannot eat huge portions due to illness but there was plenty for me. My husband had the scampi and chilli potatoes (off the main menu) and he really enjoyed his. I then had the pavlova which was lovely.
Later that night there was a group on in the bar who were fantastic and even though it was very busy the staff were on hand to still take drink orders and clear tables.
The night porter that was on was very helpfull, letting me out to have a cigarette after everything was over.
All in all we had a lovely night away and hope to return here in May when we are attending a 90th birthday party in Newtownards.
Brilliant hotel, lovely rooms and lovely staff!
