Such a lovely hotel and staff were extraordinary. The spa is just complete heaven! Was so delighted and surprised at the level of service and attention to detail throughout the hotel and spa. From the moment we were greeted by Maurice at the front door until we left, everyone was super helpful and friendly. The gin lounge is a must...

Fantastic news to hear you are already planning your next stay. Maurice is an absolute credit to the Resort, with his welcoming manner and customer service skills, I will certainly pass over your kind words to him. Our Gin Bar has over 300 gins on it's shelves. Even for the non gin fans we have some delicious gins which work...

My review will be short, as to fully appreciate the Galgorm, you really do need to go. The spa is a must and I've not came across anything so relaxing and tranquil. It feels like you're in another world and you will certainly want to return. I've stayed three times this year so far. The afternoon tea is a delight...

Attended a family wedding here at the end of October. The venue is beautiful - the hotel, the setting and the facilities. All the staff are so helpful and friendly.

Spent a midweek break with my wife at the Galgorm and we were "blown away" with the attentive staff and the facilities at the resort - it's more than a hotel - and we enjoyed the Spa, 9 hole pitch and putt, the walks around the estate, including the Maine river walk, and the food in Gillies restaurant.The room was...

Had a leisurely lunch here yesterday with friends. Greeted with a warm welcome and the staff responded very well to the unusual request by my wife to not be seated anywhere near halloween decorations with spiders (she intensely dislikes spiders - including those of the plastic variety!). The staff offered us a cosy booth with no spiders to be seen!...

The hotel is fantastic and looks to have had some not too distant modifications to improve the resort. We were given an old style family room and stayed in 102. As there were only two of us this was more than we had expected until venturing to a new deluxe room. The new part of the hotel incorporates modern decor...
