Receptionist was pleasant and check-in was quick. I love being able to browse in the reception as they have a lovely display of jewellery and other bits n pieces. Loved the room, it was big and perfectly clean. There's a couple of holes in walls & lift, but probably due to someones drunken night out. Breakfast was perfect, couldn't ask for more and staff very helpful. The walk to Carrickfergus is just over a mile, so we enjoyed the hike in and out on a fresh frosty night. Will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful decorated xmas foyer. Really well organised Xmas buffet. Bar band was a pleasant surprise. Escorted to table, offered complimentary glass of bubbly on the way then free juice at table. Nice but simple Xmas table. Plenty of choice for cold starters with a few hot nibbles such as mini sausages. Soup also. Then main was the usual. I opted for the salmon. It was slightly dry and there was no accompanying sauce for the fish in particular. Great selection of desserts but the traditional Xmas pudding dried out. The serving utensil was caked in the stuff so difficult and unappealing to use. Also again needed accompanying cream or custard in a jug beside the hot plate but plenty other wee treats to make up for this. Loved that we were not rushed and no turn over of sittings. All staff where pleasant. It must be difficult to work on Xmas day so please know it was greatly appreciated. Stayed overnight. Good standard of room and welcome rest after eating way to much. Nice night cap at hotel bar. Buffet boxing day breakfast, adequate. Although a rather expensive day, it was stress free and would consider booking again.

We stayed for a wedding, the staff where very nice and helpful. As soon as we arrived we felt welcome but the room was the issue. As soon as we got in it has a smell of sewers which sort of ruined the stay but the wife did not want to complain about it. The dinner we had in the hotel was very nice but don't think we would stay again due to what you get for the price.

Ive always wanted to visit Carrickfergus so booked into this venue with 3 rooms, myself, my son, and my daughter. Reception and parking were brilliant and speedy, rooms are top class, however... the most-unhappy and disinterested bar lady I’ve ever met. Asked for a hot chocolate for my daughter who has flu, her care was below 0! Just no interest. Go into the town and forget any taxi - there are none/unless you know someone! So all in all - not what i expected at all.

The Windrose still holds its own, class, real top class.... thank you.

Carrick - done it, not again!
