“A First Class Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

I use this hotel for business quite a now. All of the rooms are are decorated and kept to a very high standard with free WiFi available (very fast), I must say the beds are very comfortable as well. If you are a lover of good food you will be spoiled for choice with their very varied menu - and indeed the attention to detail which all of the staff show in their friendly but not intrusive manner. Love staying here. Great value for money all round. Certainly comes highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you can get room 108 (I think this is the number) you will be well impressed. If not you won'...

Had a 2 night break recently.Very impressed with the outward appearance and this was matched by the beautiful interior.We received a very warm welcome at reception,the receptionist kindly took time out to show us around the facilities.The hotel is set in the countryside but is only less than 10 mins away from Londonderry city centre. Our rooms were nicely decorated and warm. The beds were simply the best,very comfortable. On the first night we decided to have a meal in the restaurant.It was quite busy but the service was very quick and the staff very friendly.The food was fantastic,well presented and plenty of it.The menu has something for everyone and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a relaxing break.If you are passing by,stop and have a meal in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Very quiet at night,does not matter where your room is.

Here is a formula for success that the big copy n' paste ( i.e dull, predictable, monotonous) corporate oriented hotels can learn from. Iron in Room + Decent Hairdryer + Cleanliness + Nice finishings in Bathrooms + comfy mattress / duvets + hot, powerful showers + great location for walks nearby (Ness, Oak Woods etc) + parking = very happy customer.

However, the satisfaction goes through the roof when you encounter the exceptionally friendly staff. Most notable during our stay were Siobhan, Martin and Mario. They bent over backwards to help us with the entertaining the kids, directions, cracking breakfasts and evening meals. They are great craic' and very genuine people which added to our experience. The interior decor of the hotel doesn't tie in with the rustic country style exterior which makes for a nice surprise. Cool lighting, rich furnishings and novelties everywhere makes for an extra special feel. All of the above plus great prices prompted me to write this review.....

We then went to the wedding inside the same venue. Again, great layout, awesome lighting and massive portions of tasty food made for a very enjoyable night. I shall upload a panaromic photo of venue to go with this write up. Thanks Belfray ! Regards, Calum

Room Tip: Choose a room on the paddock side for the quietest rooms ( but note that the double glazing to the f...

Stayed here on sat night 7 April 2012 got here at apox 6pm and found it very easy to get checked in our room was on the first floor and as we were going upstairs my wife made a remark about how clean and fresh the hotel was we got to our room and it was wonderful and spotless the bed was a super king size and really comfy . Plenty of hanging and storage . I booked a table for us at the hotel for dinner it was just amazing the service was spot on and the food second to none . Later on we has a litte issue with our room but this was sorted out and in the morning Sally talked to us about it . Sally is just wonderful and took the time out to make sure we were looked after until we checked out later on Sunday I will be going back to stay here and will be looking forward with a chat with sally

We took our family out yesterday to celebrate our daughter's confirmation and had an excellent experience. The food was delicious and everyone was able to have something they liked as we had a choice of the Bistro menu or the carvery so everyone was happy. While the food was lovely it was the service of the staff that really made the meal for everyone. They couldn't do enough for us and made sure that we got everything we needed while adding that personal touch by taking the time to chat. My daughter really felt special and the added bonus of the complimentary cake and bottle of bubbly to celebrate went down a treat. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue to anyone who wants a relaxing and pleasant dining experience.
