It's a holiday inn express. I wasn't excited to arrive and happy enough to leave. Comfy bed. Quiet room. Nothing to complain about, just lacking any character - just not to be expected though, I suppose.

The staff at this brilliant hotel could not have done any more to make our stay any better if they tried. The buffet breakfast was real treat, with nothing left out. Our room on the fouth floor was very quiet and comfortable and serviced each by house-keeping to a very acceptable standard. The hotel is on commercial outlet estate with...

Highly recommend this hotel. 30 min from Belfast. Breakfast was phenomenal, rooms are a bit small for a family of 4. But overall can't beat value of it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free car park, free WiFi. Would stay again for sure

Usually a premier inn family but found this place. Excellent value for money for a family room including breakfast which was one if the tastiest I've ever had. Done nice eating places just on the doorstep and the bar inside is ok for a quiet drink in the evening. Nice and clean. Staff very friendly would definitely visit again.

location wise this hotel is perfect. 5 minutes from Antrim town, 20 minutes from Ballymena, 20 minutes from Belfast. Junction one shopping outlet is across the car park, as is asda and numerous restaurants. The hotel itself is basic, the bed is comfy and there was a sofa in the room which was seemingly made of rock. The room had...

Everything about our stay was good. The check in was efficient, the room was clean, the beds were good and afforded an excellent night's sleep. It's in a very convenient location. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was also good.

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).
