We had purchased a grab one voucher and stayed for two nights , the rooms were clean but maybe a fresh coat of paint to liven up the room. We had food in the restaurant on the first night and it was hot fresh and Michael the manager was very helpful in the planning of our trips . When we arrived back from our day trip to the causeway there was a wedding in full swing and the bar and restaurant was lively . Only problem was the children running up and down the corridors which the manager tried in vein to stop them but to no avail . If the hotel knows that a wedding is booked and members of the party are staying they should facilitate the other guests in a different wing of the hotel . Overall it was a good experience.

Room Tip: Ask if there is wedding and if so ask to be put in a quieter area

Stayed here as my brother was getting married, wasn't impressed with our room as it was a bit outdated and we had travelled from the uk specifically from the uk for the wedding, the single bed we had was of poor quality, we were beside guests if another wedding party and were kept awake until the early hours not good when you have a toddler! Not sure if I would stay here again but my brothers wedding was nice they done a good job with that

Stayed: October 2013

We needed a hotel to stay the start of our Northern Ireland road trip. The rooms were great. The location is very good. The bar was just what we needed to get a good night sleep for our morning adventure. Cerrickfergus is a great little town. It has it's own castle and a great pier to walk and relax.

I had bought a Grabone voucher for B&B for 2, and used it one Friday night, before Easter this year. It was good value and we found the hotel very clean and comfortable. Our room was quite large with a lovely big armchair and a large bed which was great. We decided to have a light meal that evening and went to the restaurant. However it was lacking a bit in atmosphere, as we were the only customers there. The waiter/maître d' was distant and although our meal was very nice, he was quite off putting, appearing somewhat condescending. Breakfast was ok but was quite limited… no croissants, fresh fruit or yogurts. However, if a similar offer became available I would consider buying such a voucher again, as it was valid for a year from purchase. Hopefully the major roadworks from Belfast to the Carrickfergus area will then be completed as they made our journey from the city to the hotel very slow, but that of course was no fault of the hotel’s.

Room Tip: the front rooms overlook Belfast Lough, however our side-room overlooked derelict commercial proper...

The function room upstairs was well decorated, the top table was elegant and the 8 tables had a lovely silver candle arbre as the centre piece.

For ents we had the DJ, the singing manager,now he was good and sang a few songs during the buffet, which was an array of sandwiches,cocktail sausages and sausage rolls and tea/coffee. Then there were sweets and chocolate and popcorn and candy,a kids dream, a dentist' nightmare!!!!

Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao down now!!!

We attended a wedding here and it was first class. As we flew over from the UK we were allowed early access to our rooms 11.45 am instead of 2.00pm as we had to be at the wedding for 1pm. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fairly spacious. The reception at the hotel was great, food was best have ever had at a wedding, nothing was cold unless it was meant to be (see picture of dessert)! Hotel staff so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They were happy to print off boarding passes for the airport not just for us but for several other guests. If there was a problem they even allowed guests into the office behind the reception area to help resolve problems on their pc. Just brilliant service and all with a smile.

The location was also good and a straightforward trip to reach. Would definitely go back to the hotel again if and when back in the area.
