Stayed the night in this hotel, beautiful rooms, newly decorated and all mod cons. It was a little cold during the night. Dinner in restaurant and lunch in lounge was delicious. Breakfast was equally lovely, and service was quick. Highly recommend this hotel and we'll be back.

Great hotel, 1880 exterior with a 21st Century interior. Staff are great, food is lovely, rooms are excellent. What more could you want. Stayed here several times and each time the welcome from the staff is warm and friendly. Have not hesitation in recommending this hotel. Ahhhhh AC would be a plus but not a problem.

The night porter opened the bar up for us well after hours with no fuss at all. I will certainly return again when I...

Just spent a night here, would highly recommend it. All the staff were friendly and polite, the food in the bar was excellent, as was the service. We were there for a Kickboxing competition, nearby, which the staff knew about, and my son and a few mates were able to train in one of the smaller function rooms. Next time...

Just back from a weekend stay in the Shirley arms hotel. There were 20 of us down for a golf weekend, the location was very handy and it's just an hours drive from Belfast. The hotel was spotless, food was excellent and the staff were so friendly and helpful, they really are a credit to the hotel.
