We went here for afternoon tea and a spa to celebrate a special birthday. The outlook over the river from the restaurant was spectacular and the food was delicious with great variety. The spa was first class, both the ambience of the venue and the treatment. Would definitely recommend.

We have just returned from a lovely day at Galgorm & we feel terrific! My facial was a definite highlight - thanks Kerry! Super polite staff, exceptionally clean facilities. Afternoon tea in the Conservatory topped off the day. Excellent service, wonderful food, French Champagne. Holiday bliss!

Stayed at the Galgorm Resort for 2 nights during our 10 day trip around Northern Ireland in a room facing the river. The view was beautiful and, considering the doors needed to be left open to help cool the room, it was nice to be able to hear the flowing river outside. Our favorite meal was at Fratelli's on our last night. Their pizzas are delicious. Overall, I was very impressed with this hotel but the thermal spa was the best part of our stay! We throughly enjoyed spending hours each day in the indoor pool with all of its various jets, the four different room in which you could detox your body with steam or aromatherapy, and the outdoor jacuzzi tub made of stones. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone who is traveling in the area.

Room Tip: It's worth the extra money to have a room facing the river, especially in the summer months, for...

I have been many places in my time, but I have never felt so relaxed and at peace anywhere as I did during start to finish in galgorm. The staff were polite and always on hand, the food which included breakfast and dinner, was absolutely delicious, with a wide variety to choose from, the treatments, the spa and other facilities were top notch, we have now been several times and anytime we are financially able we will attend galgorm, as no other place either abroad or at home has been as peaceful, stress free, relaxing and enjoyable. Some may say it's very costly, but it all boils down to you get what you pay for. If you haven't experienced galgorm yet, make plans to do so...

Room Tip: All rooms are of a high standard, but rooms facing onto the river/ outside spa etc is most relaxing

I booked this as a treat for my partner and I. We had a couples spa day with a number of treatments. The spa did disappoint a little as we felt like we were just a number. We didn't let this ruin our stay. We got dinner in Gillies which was lovely.
Next morning breakfast was out of this world. The selection was insane! From fruit, breads, cereals, pancakes to hot food and more we enjoyed everything.
Before we left we walked around the grounds which are breathtaking.
This place ticks every box, so much so that we got engaged two days after and this was booked within the week :)

My partner & I visited for our second time. From the moment we entered the hotel reception we were greeted by concierge staff member Paul - who had remembered us from our previous stay.
Our room was clean and had a great balcony with view.
For lunch we are in Gillies and dinner in Fratelli. Both times food and service were faultless.

We have our wedding booked for 13 weeks time and cannot wait to show off Galgorm to all our close family & friends.
