We have five little ones at home, so an uninterrupted night's sleep was our main priority. Slight noise outside around...

We were told the staff at The Merchant are very friendly and this is absolutely true. You will be received with a warm welcome and a very helpful concierge will introduce you to the hotel and show you to your room. Cocktails at the bar are absolutely fabulous. Ask for Lee - he is a wealth of information for tourists....

We are three golf buddies on a first time golf/leisure trip to Northern Ireland and Ireland. Stayed in the Victorian style rooms. Although the decor is Victorian, the room amenities are up to date, such as comfortable bedding, modern bathroom, free WiFi. The entire staff was terrific....friendly, helpful, and truly committed to hospitality. The bar is comfortable and the bartenders...
