I really enjoyed this hotel, was planned to stay 2 days... made 4! Perfect place to visit Belfast (20 min by car, 45 by bus, stop right in front of the hotel, 3.50£ single ticket). Bangor 5 min away by car. Clean rooms, big car park, helpful and friendly people working there (kudos to the very early cleaning lady, always...

A friend and I had a late lunch last weekend. Very relaxing! Good bar menu, we went for sandwiches which were very tasty and fillings just that wee bit different. Can recommend chicken tikka and the chickpea and avocado was delish too! House wine lovely and good range of coffee and tea. As I've said before very relaxing and excellent...

The Old Inn was, as one would expect, a glimpse of what it would have been like to visit hotels in the past but with a modern twist in facilities etc. The rooms were compact but clean and had most of the facilities expected of a modern hotel. The bed although comfortable was, to say the least, a bit high...

We attended a family wedding reception at The Old Inn and was looking forward to a special experience. On arrival we were directed to a suffocating,because of over the top decor, lounge to help ourselves to tepid,disgusting coffee (I can't comment on the tea as I didn't try it). When it came to going down to the actual reception room,...

We stayed overnight on Thursday 13th April in a junior suite (Fern Room) on the Divine dinner package. I had never been to this hotel before and it was always on my to-do list! The accommodation package was very good value for money. The Fern room was a beautiful room. The bathroom was very well appointed and we had a...

Hello Diane, thank you for your review. Firstly Congratulations! I appreciate this has come too late to appear as a genuine gesture, however I appreciate we did not acknowledge this while you stayed with us. I did investigate this personally with our reception staff and tracked your booking back and unfortunately there has been an issue for a few weeks...

As was each and every member of staff we met (table servers, room service, bar staff & chef). The suite was full of character and had everthing we needed and very clean.

Service was terrible, waiters / waitresses walking around with no clear direction. Waited over an hour for main meals, 40minutes to clear plates from table, 20 minutes for drink order (seated right next to bar). Food was good though but main meal (Turkey & ham) was like a dinner you would be served at a works xmas party. Not what...

Hello I am sorry for the delays you experienced. This is something we are aware of and have ramped up a large recruitment drive to enlist more servers for our Sunday service which is becoming very popular. We have also just brought in a new Restaurant Manager to brief the staff more clearly. I will investigate the Turkey and Ham...
