Had breakfast in the restaurant - the surroundings very very impressive as were the views over Belfast Lough. Food was beautiful and nothing was any trouble to the staff

Executive Head Chef, Paul McKnight, certainly presides over a very competent and imaginative kitchen at the main restaurant in the Culloden estate & Spa. This visit, I was tempted by Hannan's beef rib. squash, mango and soy (£9.00) which was a 4-hour slow cooked piece of tender flesh with sweet and sour flavours. Utterly delicious. For mains, I selected Katesbridge... More

The Mitre restaurant is woeful. We reserved a table for 8pm but were not asked for our food order for a further half hour. Starter eventually arrived at 9pm, we weren't offered bread for the table or to have our glasses of water topped up. My wife ordered a glass of red wine which came with 2 dead flies floating...

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Culloden 7 years ago so it made sense to book our Anniversary Dinner here. Although I mentioned this when booking, we were shown to a table in the middle of the room, just inches away from the next diners. Oddly enough, the restaurant wasn't full and there were several more... More

Came here for a business meeting, and was blown away by this hotel. I now want to come back and stay, and eat, and spa here!! The staff were exceptional, attentive, but not annoyingly so. The views over the loch are wonderful, and there is a great pub on the site as well where we had lunch
