Location was great for visit to Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens. Room fine for family of four and the restaurant was very nice. Cannot say enough about welcoming staff ad just how nice Nicole and her colleague (name tags too small!!) were to us at dinner, making our visit so very pleasant andour children so happy. Cannot say enough.
