As a party of three, we had dinner here last night, it was hard to beat! We arrived ten minutes before our 7.45pm booking, but were seated immediately by courteous and friendly restaurant staff. For mains, two of us ordered the sirloin steak with chips, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and sauce. It was excellent, cooked exactly to our request, piping hot and adequate portion size. The other ordered crisp haddock, also of a large portion size and served with chips, mushy peas and salad, and the fish was deemed extremely tasty. For desserts, we had the most gorgeous apple and cinnamon crumble with custard, choc fudge cake served heated and with ice cream and a trio of ice creams. Beers and soft drinks washed down this most beautiful meal. The restaurant area was clean and comfortable, the staff were efficient and well presented in staff uniforms and there was a pleasant atmosphere. I’d like to thank the chefs for the preparation of excellent food, and Jacqui in the restaurant for her professional supervision. G

Had booked a family meal for 7th March to celebrate a confirmation. The table was booked in January but on arrival our table had been given away. After many issues throughout the meal I telephoned the hotel the following day, to discuss the problem with the manager but I never got a phone call back, I also emailed on the 8th March and to this day the 7th April I have had no reply. Worst customer service because it’s clear it doesn’t exist. A nice family celebration has been completely ruined. I wouldn’t advise you to dine in this hotel as the service is extremely poor or non existent and I wouldn’t want another family to have their celebration ruined.

Good decent sized rooms,everything you need close by. Food is 10/10 Staff are 10/10 unbelievably helpful. 1 of our kids was unwell the entire trip and the staff ran about helping us out at every opportunity,especially the breakfast staff. Would stay here again

I was fortunate to be invited to attend the wedding reception of a great friend at the Beechlawn Hotel earlier this month. It's a long time since I have been to the Hotel, and now the experience is behind me I wanted to share with you how fantastic the meal was.... Vegetable broth followed by the turkey and ham with all the trimmings - both were delicious and piping hot despite having speeches beforehand. I really enjoyed the profiteroles too. Service was quick but a little sloppy, so I'd suggest that's the next thing to concentrate on?

Had a meal here on Sunday,food was average.The hotel was quite cold we had to sit with our coats on it was that cold.The hotel was over run by children climbing on seats and tables and generally running wild without anyone,parents or staff doing anything about it.We had the roast beef which was wafer thin and the cheesecake desert was so bland it was unreal.We would have been frequent visitors to the Beechlawns but after Sundays experience we will not be back,If you are looking for a quiet meal in a nice hotel avoid this place like the plague.

Called in for Sunday dinner after a walk up Divis mountain. Well, we didn't realise we were walking into a creche. Actually a crèche would be more controlled by child minders. Kids were running a wild. Climbing up the stairs, falling down stairs,screaming shouting....need I go on. No parental control. The manager appeared to understand our complaint but was at a lose as to what to do. Apology given but no form of compensation offered. On a positive the waitress was very pleasant and the food satisfactory.. Unfortunately our experience was marred by parents who were unwilling/unable to control their children. We won't be back.

The hotel was small from outside but Very big and beautiful inside. The meeting hall is super design design .The food average , customer care and staff good enough. I wonder the space inside well decorated .The charge also Regenable .

It's a heart of the village type place in my opinion; situated in Dunmurry [suburb of Belfast or nearby town to Belfast depending on how you view where you are]. It's a friendly & lively place with decent bedrooms, conference and party facilities and very good food - particularly lunches and evening meals. The nearby shops, eateries and pub suffice for a few days' stay as well and there are easy transfers to the city centre via close train/taxi/bus availability. The place has being taken under new ownership and is having a face-lift with some of the rooms being 'boutiqued' and others generally improved too so it's all good. My January visit was my second one and I'll rerturn next year for sure. Liz who serves breakfast is an absolute janner and will stop for a natter and that's a really nice touch.

Arrived on Friday 2nd February. Given keys to room 246, cold room and radiator not working. My companion called reception and they gave us keys for another room as there would be a delay in the maintenance man getting here. I was impressed with the quick response and we moved down the corridor to room 252; nice warm room but door was sticky when you tried to open it and the toilet made a noise every 90 seconds. Apart from this we thought it would do as it was only for one night. Bar - ok, young person with beard and older man with glasses were nice but other barman was rude, he certainly gave the impression that it was a chore to be serving drinks. Went back to the room at 23:20 and it was like a furnace. We opened the window but by 02:00 we had had enough. Went down to reception to have someone come to the room to turn down the radiator but went back down again 15 minutes later as no one came to or called the room. I got keys for room 246 and went back there at 02:45 this was after I managed to get back into the room to collect my gear; as you can see from the picture below the brass plate in the door came loose when the door stuck for the last time. Finally after going back and forth I got to sleep about 4am, the reason for the hotel stay was so we were refreshed for our journey this morning.... that didn’t work out as planned. Breakfast - it was alright. Would I stay here again...:No!

We went for a weekend visiting with a bunch of like minded enthusiasts of Scrabble. The venue was superb. It is in the middle of a major refurbishment at the moment, and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a superior suite for my birthday, which was a lovely touch by the management. Although i saw other rooms and they too were of an excellent quality. Our room was enormous with a balcony, and king sized bed. We also had a very wide bath as well as a walk in shower. The furnishings were of a very high quality and the sound proofing was wonderful, as we didn't hear the band or the disco going on below us when we went to bed. Breakfast was included and of a very high standard, being cooked to order. Our waitress Liz couldn't do enough for us, she was incredibly dedicated to making our stay one we will never forget. There was also a selection of pastries, cereals and fruit to help yourself to, as well as the full Irish breakfast to choose from. We also ate all of our other meals in the hotel over the weekend, although there is a Tesco next door if you needed it for anything else. The bar meals were excellent, and averaged out at about £5 a meal. The Bistro menu was lovely, and there were daily specials as well. We tended to eat off the main menu as it was so reasonable, and the portions were enormous! So much so that we downgraded to just starters on our last day as we were still so full from breakfast! The place was very busy over the weekend, but the staff always found time to accommodate us or do anything we needed. We used one of the conference suites for our tournament and it was very comfortable and roomy. We came in at Belfast International airport and the taxi was about £25 coming to the hotel, and £20 on the way back with a local firm. Both trips took about half an hour and the drivers were very helpful. There was plenty of selection of ales in the bar, although I am not much of a drinker, and the ambience was lovely. I am already looking forward to returning next year when the refurbishment should be complete. The only niggle we had was that there needed to be more staff on duty at breakfast time. We only saw one waitress, and she was run ragged, but she still did it with a smile on her face. This meant that breakfast on the Sunday took a very long time for those who came down after us, when we had a deadline to meet for the tournament start. Thank you to all the staff at the Beechlawn House hotel for such a memorable birthday. And an especial one to Liz our waitress.
