Our Son bought us the stay as a gift, and it was a great gift! We had a lovely time at the resort, our room was however overlooking the current work that is being carried out, and that was noisy in the afternoon, and the following morning. (However this was addressed by the staff and we received a voucher towards...

A place like this is rare to find in Northern Ireland, but well worth visiting.......if you have the money. This is not the sort of place you do on a shoestring, its all or nothing!! The staff are great, the best I have come across in the northern provinces, just what you would expect from continental venues..so well done there!...

The galgorm thermal village is like no other spa, something for everyone, even it is sitting in the orangery with a beverage! The service and treatment from every member of staff you will encounter is second to none, friendly, attentive and genuine. I would never choose another hotel in NI for a spa break, nothing compares in my opinion. We...

After staying in a cottage with my sister for my birthday I am disgusted. The place was a dump. The spa was nice and the treatments good. Let the photos of the cottage speak for themselves. Peeling wallpaper, mouldy shower, light hanging of wall, pillows where absolutely repugnant. Stained bedding. Altogether gross
