The Holyrood Hotel has been remodelled and revamped and looks fab. The bedlinen, towels etc, the bathroom, bedroom, the facilities are all top class. We stay here on mid-term break and Christmas and Easter and every other chance we get inbetween as the Kids Club is just brilliant. From 10am to 6pm (or beyond if there’s a cinema trip), the...

We stayed in this hotel this weekend. The hotel needs a overhaul as it's dated and old. The food is basic in the restaurant - not worth the cost. At breakfast - on both mornings- the restaurant had water leaks from the ceiling tiles and lights. On one morning the fire alarm went off at 4am and 8am. Apparently someone...

We were woke out of our sleep to a porter standing at the end of our bed, he ran out of room as we woke.Our teenager was petrified and couldnt sleep the rest of the night. The excuse we got from reception was that he was going to fix our shower at 3am without notifying us! Unsafe especially for children...

Dear Kay16NorthernIreland, once again I am sorry that the night porter mistakenly accessed your room. Further to our conversation I did explain to you the circumstances surrounding this. The door is fitted with a chain to protect the security of our families, which when on prevents any unauthorised entry to occupied guest rooms. Sincerely Audrey Mc Eniff

Only problem we had was cold showers room 275 and only one lift. With my husband disabled and a pram the staff use the same lift as the customers so can be a long wait at times. Kids club very good and food
