    The location was excellent. Easy access to the castle and to the train station to Belfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We loved the character and history of the inn and enjoyed eating in the pub.

    Parking was not the most convenient. You can park, however, at the castle parking lot which is a couple blocks away without paying or worrying about time constraints.

    clean, friendly staff, good breakfast, and especially the night porter who serves you alchohol beveridges at 2am.

    not much really but just the bathroom was a bit tired and in need of a wee makeover. and my friends bath was about 4feet high making it a bit awkward to get in and out of.

    Very basic accomodation and bar lacked atmosphere.Were offered a very unacceptable room at first which was not clean and then given a better room after complaining. Very impersonal and certainly would not recommend.

    Superb

    Very comfortable eating room with coal fire and other heating. Exceptionally friendly staff who provided fast service. Good quality food, no frills just simple choices & good portions. There is a chef who makes excellent scones and deserts. Liked the atmosphere and the fact your dog is welcome too.This at an extra charge which is fair enough. Dog allowed on guest room & not in bar or eating area. Bedroom double glazed. Excellent beds & extra pillows & all usual extras, Clean & quiet.

    Outer appearance needs a good spruce up. Peeling paint etc. Mentioned this to Reeption who explained will be done up when road works are complete. Internal decoration nice. The Ensuite clean but dated. Could be improved with some imagination. No armchair in room.

    Fabulous

    Excellent breakfast. Comfortable, but not luxury room.

    Bathroom was a bit of a squeeze to enter and leave. Heating did not remain on throughout the day - the weather was particularly cold some days. BREAKFAST, for holiday makers, should continue beyond 9.00; we would probably not have booked had we known this beforehand. Our room, most definately needed double-glazed windows. It would have prevented the windows being continually misted up and reduced the noise; roadworks, refuse collection, road sweepers and delivery vehicles made are rather cacophany of noise every morning.

    Very good

    The staff were very helpful and polite and the location is excellent..

    There was no hot water both in the evening and the morning. We rang reception about it in the evening and was told to wait 20 minutes after waiting for 40 minutes the water was still cold.
