Sadly we stayed at this beautiful hotel but the food in gillies was not great. The music in the evening also let it down. Drinks are also very expensive. The setting and spa are the only reasons we would return.

My wife and i had a 3 course meal as part of our package at the very impressive Galgorm Resort & Spa, to say we were disappointed with Gillies would be an understatement. i chose my starter and main from the evening specials which consisted of prawns with a heavy coriander sauce, i think, wasn't very good, but not too...

We stayed at Galgorm resort for 6 days and had Gillies for breakfast and lunch several times. Everything I had was great and the staff was very friendly! Service was a little slow, but staff made up for it by being friendly and the quality of the food! Overall a great experience!
