Culloden Estate & Spa
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Holywood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Stayed on business with a group. Excellent service, food and rooms. Could have stayed on to soak up the grounds and atmosphere but had to come home. The food was excellent and a very impressive wine list too. Staff friendly and very professional.

Apart from a soft bed (personal choice would have had a firmer one) I cannot find fault
For the cost I would be pushed to recollect a better hotel.

Very handy for Belfast City Airport too

We had our sons wedding reception here 3 weeks ago. Absolutely amazing in every way. From the minute we arrived to the minute we booked out, everything was just perfect. The food at the reception was absolutely beautiful, and everyone has been saying how much they enjoyed the meal and how high the standard of the food was.The stuart suite where the reception was held is a beautiful room, All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful from the waiting staff to the lovely doorman who walked me to my car under his umbrella to keep me dry. Breakfast the next day was also lovely with a good variety.The grounds are just beautiful and we had some lovely wedding photographs taken there.
So all in all we have nothing but praise for the culloden for making our son and daughter in laws big day just perfect.

Wonderful experience at Culloden Spa. Roisin at reception was extremely friendly, helpful, and gave all the information needed to make this a great time. Treatment was really relaxing, I had a full body massage which left me feeling great with lovely soft skin. My therapist was Tressa., who was extremely professional. I was spending the day with my daughter we had a wonderful time and also enjoyed lunch at the Zest Bar.
Well worth a visit.

We stayed at the Culloden as part of a concert / room package. We only stayed one night and I wish we stayed longer (it was booked out). The garden is beautiful. We took our 1 year old son with us, and this didn't cause any problems. We hired one of their recommended babysitters, Louise, and she was brilliant.
