They allow layman preachers to arrive in from the street and ram religion down your throat instead of food! This I can assure leaves a bad taste in the mouth as well as being uncomfortable. Would not recommend, kids were frightened when we witnessed what seemed to be an exorcism (hands on head) event taking place with religious chants.

Yesterday we had the sad occasion of having a memorial service for my brother Richie Bunting who passed away in France in November. After the service we had a buffet in the annex at the Loughshore Hotel. Firstly I would like to thank Lily in the Events department, for her help and advice. It's not every day you have to...

We visited here a while back for a wedding and really enjoyed ourselves. The price was reasonable and food was great also, better than we expected. Room was cosy and clean and great option of movies to watch for a small fee.

The staff was obliging and helpful, but house-keeping services were rather hit-and-miss. I had a large executive room, which was comfortable enough, but with nothing special in respect of executive comforts. Meals were fairly standard , though breakfast was nothing special, with tinned fruit rather than fresh, and packet cereals. Location was convenient for Belfast and the City Airport.

Stayed overnight with Couples deal, included a 3course meal with a bottle of wine, we had steak £5 extra which was cooked to perfection. plus there's entertainment later in the bar. Have to say it's so worth the money. Our room was lovely very spacious. Breakfast was also included. Will definitely be returning.
