Attended recently for a wedding ceremony / reception. Lovely venue with ample parking and very picturesque. Ceremony was held on third floor, my only critic was the lack of seating, while I understand space is limited and wedding couple would give numbers I believe extra chairs would have helped to allow people to sit with friends family. Sparkling wine and...

We attended a wedding here recently.Although the mill has been well restored and the food delicious,it is basic enough.Some of the toilets had real towels for drying your hands on as the hand drier was not working.These were naturally disgusting after a short while.A pack of disposable hand towels would have been a much more hygienic option. A few more...

Had a lovely day at friends wedding. Decided to stay over, the room was above the function room, music carried on onto early morning, guests making a lot of noise, paper thin walls could hear every thing that was going on. Bed uncomfortable, and dated room with bedding. Forgot something in my room and rang to see if they had...

We stayed for my nephews wedding, (we were from America). It was super clean but not in a "cold sterile hospital" sense. The food in the dinner was great. You felt a sense of culture and kinship. Sean, the owner, I think was super friendly and warm. He gave us great tips on what to check out during our stay

Location is stunning and just perfect for a wedding. We stayed over and had a room on the fourth floor - excellent room, quiet, comfortable and authentic - very much in keeping with the style of the mill. Wedding was superb, well looked after by the staff on duty, food was amazing and plenty of it. Breakfast was pretty good...

This one we found by accident, after a long day driving we asked at a petrol station if there were any places to stay, we were given directions to the Mill. It was about a 10 min drive from the nearest town. We arrived just before dark and were very lucky to get a room. The owners were lovely and...

Rooms were very basic and spiders everywhere, webs and spiders in every corner and available space - a clear sign of poor cleaning upkeep so I'd never stay over. Nice for the wedding though: lovely grounds, unusual layout of rooms, staff all lovely, meal delicious (roast beef, really gorgeous, everyone impressed)

Have to say can't fault this place. Everyone at the wedding seemed to love the venue. Very rustic and pretty. Staff bent over backwards and were really friendly. Relaxed atmosphere. The whole day flew in. The minute you came down for breakfast they handed you a fry tailored to your own tastes. The wedding meal was plentiful and beautiful. Shower...

A nice function venue but not really set up if you need to stay over with young kids. Our family room was right above the function room so it felt we had not left the party, the music was so loud. Our window was also very close to the smokers balcony. Not great trying to get toddlers asleep. The loud...

My company is Weddings at Tiffanys based in belfast first time being in this quirky venue was surprised how big it was inside...the staff were all really friendly and helpful. I liked how it was spaced out over 3 floors. Very romantic and relaxed atmosphere...would Defo recommend to future brides
