Stayed three nights at this hotel to attend a family funeral. First impression was good. Set in nice grounds just outside Ballynahinch. Staff that greeted us were friendly and helpful. To be fair this was my experience throughout our stay. Our room was warm and clean. The drink making facility included packets of biscuits which I thought was a nice touch. Breakfast was served in the restaurant allowing us a view of the squirrels whilst we ate. Breakfast itself was not so enjoyable. The food was plentiful but was let down by quality. The bacon was so dried out it was like cardboard. The two mornings I ordered fried eggs they arrived with solid yolks and on both occasions appeared to contain small pieces of shell. On the third morning my wife ordered a fried egg and that was in fact ok. Perhaps they had been practising in the kitchen. One other problem we experienced on the culinary side was a ham sandwich arrived with a pot of mustard on the side. So far so good until I found they had also spread mustard inside the sandwich. Rather a pity that these things took the edge off of what otherwise was a pleasant stay. The hotel is undergoing a refit an in room safe would be nice touch in keeping with current practice.
