I stayed at the Garden hotel for 2 days this week while on business. I needed to book a hotel quickly and the found a few positive reviews so went ahead, I was also drawn by the thought of the cantonese restaurant in situ.
Booking was prompt and efficient and I sent an e-mail confirmation request, which was promptly replied to. the car park is at the rear of the hotel and from its size would struggle to accomodate all guests if they arrived by vehicle, although I nited that a train station car park a short walk away was available.
Initial impressions as you drive around the rear of the hotel is not that positive, the road is largely unmade and the area tatty. Check-in was prompt and I was shown to my room. I was pleasantly surpsrised by the room, it was quite large and very tidy and clean. The en-suite shower room was as the same quality as the room. The decor was modern and the furniture of a good standard. My room was at the front of the hotel, which is adjacent to the main road into Bangor so was quite noisey if you had the windows open.
I ate in the restaurant on the first night and to be honest I thought it was a little on the expensive side when compared to the quality of the food. We have a good choice of chinese restaurants in the area I live in and cost against quality I thought is better at my local restaurants. I would rate the food at about 6/10. The restaurant service was fine as was the surroundings.
Breakfast was fine with a choice of cerials and hot food cooked to order. Overall the room was pleasant and very very clean and tidy and the restaurant food was okay.
