I've been staying in this hotel for years and it's the friendliest and most comfortable holiday inn express ever. Staff are great and always helpful. The location is central for business around Norther Ireland.

The food, service and rooms were great and the price was too. We had drinks in the pub in the evening. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel provided us with tooth brushes and toothpaste (we forgot ours).

We stayed here for a few days during the February half term break. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the room was clean. The hotel is a short distance from Belfast International Airport and Belfast itself is about half an hour by car, with several Park and Ride sites on route, which are very useful. The hotel is situated...

I visited this hotel for a weekend with my girlfriend, it has been one of the best of many we've visited in different countries. Great staff, lovely breakfast, very well equipped for the price, less than 15 minutes away from Belfast Int. Airport

We've been here twice now and find this hotel a good location for many activities in this area. Staff is very pleasant and always makes sure we have a nice stay. The rooms are clean and efficient. Breakfast is very good. Easy to get to many point of interest in Antrim and along the north coast.

Stayed here for one night for a work trip as it was cheap and convenient, and as such I was not expecting much from the hotel. The room was fine in terms of size and cleanliness, however the lift smelled of vomit, which seemed not to have been cleaned up properly so I took the stairs! The shower was awful,...

​My key criteria for staying away, unless it's a special event, are staff attitude, cleanliness of my room, comfortable firm bed, temperature of the room and the quality of shower/bath. Staff were all friendly and helpful, my room was clean although the temperature control was fiddly. The bed was comfortable but the real let-down was the "adequate" shower. There was...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights during the week. We wanted somewhere clean, comfortable and accessible. There are a couple of restaurants on the doorstep, although we didn't try these.
