“Grim! Most definitely not a four star hotel.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I stayed here for one night as part of a wedding party - it was like stepping back in time. My room had a double bed and three singles -
Resembling a hostel dormitory as opposed to a hotel room. The duvet on the bed was horrible. A big old heavy blanket with a duvet cover over it and Old pillows. Luckily the residents bar allowed us to stay downstairs until 5am so I didn't have to endure the room surroundings.
The food at the wedding was plain and mass produced - disappointing to say the least but set the standard.
Breakfast the next day was nothing short of disgusting. I think it was fried soda and fried potato bread mixed in a metal tray. It just tasted of burnt grease. Granted I didn't go to breakfast until 10:15 (15 mins before breakfast close) but there were no eggs left and only 3 slices of bacon. The "choice" of bread consisted of brown or white.
This is most definitely not a four star hotel compared to standards of other hotels I've stayed in. Three stars at a push.

Booked last minute for a night away without children great value 1night bb and dinner but when I read reviews was very nervous. Hotel was clean and homely room was very small but clean and was quiet. Meal was lovely and wine was included, spent the evening in the bar which had a band playing traditional music. Breakfast was buffet style but good variety and quality would return if we had a bigger room.

We stayed here with a Treat Ticket offer which included 1 night b&b and 3 course dinner. The meal we had was good and I could find no fault. The breakfast was buffet style so obviously some food was sitting on the hot plates for a while. It was as good as expected.

The room, although spacious and the bed comfortable, was in need of some tlc and could do with a refurb. For an executive room in a 4* hotel I would expect a bit more luxury.

This is a Mooney Hotel Group hotel (not Hastings Group as another reviewer stated) and I do hope they take note of these recent reviews and make the improvements where necessary. I wouldn't
want this hotel to get any worse.

On Saturday Night 3rd May 2014 my wife and I met at Dunadry Hotel with two friends from Holywood Co Down. I had booked a table in the Bistro for 6.30 p.m. As we walked into the bistro via a conservatory type area which had tables and seating I noted some of the tables could have done with a clean. We were promptly and courteously shown to out table (NO 31). We were presented with menus which were typed out on A4 sheets of paper - they had Tea & Coffee stains on them. My friend found his seat to be very wobbly and we also noted the table somewhat wobbly - I have actually seen better being used at Car Boot Sales. When the waitress came to take order both table and chair were mentioned to her but her priority was to take order. My friend asked if we could move to a table in corner but this was reserved. Waitress said she would sort but never did. Our 4 main course meals whilst acceptable were nothing special for a 4* establishment. We ordered 4 deserts. One a sticky toffee pudding which my friends wife ordered had a very solid lump in middle and was inedible. She couldn't even cut through it with a knife and fork. My friend drew to attention of waitress who said she would mention to chef. We expected her to return with some form of explanation but she didn't. For some reason I am not sure of Tea or Coffee didn't seem to be on offer and our bill duly arrived. Sticky Toffee Pudding @ £4.75 was on bill so we brought to attention asking what Chef had said about it. Reply was 'He didn't think it was good enough'. We pointed out it was on bill. It was removed at this point. On the bill was a Bailey's Coffee which my friend ordered - It was charged at £5.35 whilst others on menu (Baileys Wasn't) were priced at £4.75. Queried but told that was price as LIqueurs were sometimes dearer than spirits. Tia Maria was £4.75 !!. When meal was finished and bill duly paid we decided to sit in Conservatory area I referred to at start. Area had just been vacated by wedding party who used it whilst room was being set up for evening do. Glasses etc that were left were not cleared until we ordered Tea/Coffee - table wasn't even wiped.. What was meant to be a pleasant chat over Tea/Coffee was ruined by the Racket coming from the wedding Evening do. I don't blame in any way the guests as they were there to enjoy a special day. The Hotel does not allow for both - two close together. I decided to check out seating in bar area at reception but found a singer with two large speakers and a music system giving it his all. The doors from this area into the evening do were open and again the racket was unbearable. The singer seemed to be trying to outdo the evening do - not a place for a quiet chat with friend so we left. I posted letter of complaint to Manager on Tuesday 6th May and it is now Thursday 22nd May - NO REPLY. This is supposed to be a 4* Hotel but based on our experience that night I would rate it 2* at best. To me NO REPLY means TOUGH. As I had suggested Dunadry I felt particularly bad about the whole experience. IF YOU REALLY MUST DINE HERE PLEASE CHECK OUT IF THERE IS WEDDING ON AT SAME TIME - IF THERE IS MY ADVISE WOULD BE TO PASS. REALLY DISAPPOINTED. What once was and still could be a really good Hotel has gone downhill.

Room Tip: Can't help as only dined there unfortunately.

Spent three nights here last week. Normally stay Belfast city centre but due to Balmoral show and Indy200 the usual suspects were full. I stayed here at what was a reasonable rate for a '4*'. Location - about 20mins from Belfast City centre and is very quiet and peaceful. The hotel itself isn't bad but does need updating. According to the entrance area, it was established in 1966. Possibly and may have been updated c1980's. The brickwork wall effect and chintz kinda gives it away a little.
The room was comfortable enough apart from one night when a neighbouring guest had obviously left their bathroom light on and the fan ran for most of the night. It was quite audible in my room and annoying
Staff are pleasant enough apart from a rather frosty welcome at check-in.
Breakfast is hearty enough, although I have tasted better in lesser graded establishments. That along with Christmas tunes belting out the PA at 7am is a bit off putting...It is nearly summer you know.
Would I return here? Wouldn't be my first choice, but wouldn't have an issue if there were no alternatives

Room Tip: Go for an upgraded room if possible.

spent a night at this hotel recently and honestly found it a pleasant experience. Okay it needs a make over and some T L C but i found the staff pleasant and eager to please,the room was airy and bright and the bed first class. Not sure about the brickwork wall effect but some might find it tasteful.My food was quite tasty although my companions were slightly disappointed with their portions(small) the hotel as i said is in need of some refurbishment not a four star in its present condition but nevertheless plenty to like about it

Lovely hotel, excellent staff on reception and a fabulous Bar man/ manager who made you feel very welcome. Very cozy bed and excellent power shower. Great place to stay... no faults . Clean and very charming place with lots of character, not your everyday boring hotel x
