I stayed at the Downshire Arms Hotel over the weekend, all the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful at all times. There is a massive choice for breakfast, all cooked superbly and served by lovely staff. It would be impossible I feel to find any fault with this establishment, I would highly recommend this without hesitation, faultless.

As visitors to Banbridge N.I my wife and I were taken to the Downshire Arms Hotel for a Sunday Roast, all I can say it was well worth the visit and would definitely return, the place is spotless and there is a very warm feeling to it.

Delighted meal catching up with a friend. Great sunday lunch of turkey and ham with plenty of fresh vegetable selection. Followed by an old childhood favourite of mine creamed rice pudding with nutmeg. The dining room truly embodies great character and a relaxing ambience. We will return soon. Thank you!

This was a return visit to the Downshire having stayed there a few years ago. Pleased to see that the same personal touch is very present. We eat in the dining room and one of the bar men suggested we try the steaks as the hotel was renowned for them. We were not disappointed - really tasty with great portions...
