The Dundary Hotel is a 4 star property only if the stars are being awarded by a kindergarten teacher. Here are the facts: 1. The room had cheap, poorly made furniture. Our bedside lamps literally had stickers on them from where they were priced at a used furniture store. The desk and chair were less than IKEA quality, and probably dated to the mid-70s. There was no door on the closet and nothing upon which to place a suitcase. The bathroom had four ceiling lights, two of which where literally coming out of the ceiling with exposed wiring. the bath shower had good water pressure, but the grout was dirty, in some places black. The tub spout had a large opening around it into the wall. The deadbolt in our door was missing the bolt. There was no room safe. The second night of our five night stay, the electricity went out and they had to move us to another, equally appalling room. The towels were thin and cheap. On three occasions our daughter's room key failed to work and had to be replaced. 2. The common hall areas had a bad smell that seemed to change from hallway to hallway, but could generally be described as moldy. The common area carpets were 1970s and worn in many places. 3. The food was bad, especially the breakfast buffet. The bartenders could not make a martini, Manhattan or old fashioned. The most complex drink they could make was a whiskey & ginger ale. This is a worn, old, out-dated, moldy property set on a beautiful grounds that deserve a much better hotel on it. The place needs to be gutted and rebuilt or torn down. Its a really crappy property. On a positive note, the staff was quite friendly, if incompetent compared to any real 4 star property. I seriously doubt a single person here had a college degree, much less a degree in hospitality or hotel management. They were just nice young people who likely were willing to work cheaply at a cheap hotel. The only thing that saved the property at all was that it was cheap and the bed was very comfortable. Once you were asleep, you did not notice it was a dump.
Had a fantastic meal with a couple of friends here on a warm beautiful evening. The surroundings with the river and views were exceptional as was the meal and indeed the staff, both waitresses and bar staff are very friendly and efficient. Now the downside, the interior could do with a re-vamp, sorry to say that the interior of the dining room looks like it needs a lick o paint to the point that it looks grubby and dirty (which it isn't) Come on people you have the staff, put the effort in.
Had carvery lunch 20 June with hubby and my father. We go here a few times a year and as always, a warm welcome from all staff! We opted for the 3 course lunch which was absolutely delicious. Plenty of choice, cooked to perfection and extremely generous portions, served by really pleasant and attentive staff. Once again, highly recommend the carvery at Dunadry.
Here is a charming hotel with comfortable rooms, great bars and sitting areas and outside grounds where you can relax and take a beautiful walk along th river. This place is a go to place for a wedding.
I stayed at this hotel while working for a week on Antrim. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was £10 a day on a buffet style. I ate an evening meal there too and this was very pleasant and beautifully presented. I ate in the seated area near the river and the views were very pretty. The general feeling of the hotel is friendly and the lack of a corporate identity stamp makes this a great place with an individual character. There are photos of the buildings in their many previous uses, and the bar area even features wooden pillars recycled from linen producing machinery. There was folk music performed live in the bar area on one night. This was enjoyed by groups of tourists from Eire, Germany and France. I travelled to the Giants Causeway, which is approximately an hour's drive away. I also explored Belfast, which was approximately 25 minutes drive away outside of rush hour. There is plenty of parking available, and is only 25 minutes drive from Belfast international airport. Generally the staff only speak English, so foreign visitors should bring a phrase book or google translate if they aren't English speakers.
Stayed here for one night. The rooms for huge and comfortable and quite. Could not fault the stay. The food was okay. Having paid a small supplement for the beef on the two course menu I honestly expected more quality. To some up, a very pleasant stay and I would come again and recommend to others.
We were welcomed by the receptionist who went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. The room was warm and comfortable, A really nice place to stay with courteous staff. We checked in very late, and were made to feel welcome. We will visit this hotel again when in Belfast
We had a table booked for an early, family dinner for my mums 60th on Sat 27th May, there were 14 of us. Service from the beginning was appalling, the staff looked like they didn't want to be there, never mind wanting us to be there, they could just about bring themselves to take our drinks and food order, their faces were cold and miserable, sorry to be blunt but they really were very unfriendly! we were seated in a dated, cold, 'conservatory area' in which every window was open (weather outside was cold and miserable), think they thought weather was as beautiful as day before)! I closed all the windows as we were all freezing. Our 89 year old grandmother was absolutely froze. The food came and it was very middle of the road standard, not hotel standard at all, the kids meals were pretty much uneatable and was very well done, crunchy grease, my 3 year old did not eat a bit of it which left her hungry and irritable. We were not asked by the unfriendly staff if everything was ok, we weren't even in the mood for dessert but my wee granny loves pavlova, this was much to be desired, it tasted like it had been prepared 3 days previous, it really was not good at all, my wee grandmother was paying the bill, it came to around £255.00, this is a huge amount for the awful service and the disappointing food, I went to pay and the guy at the bar snatched it out of my hand, pretty much summed this place up, we would have been better stopping for fish and chips as we would have been more fulfilled and I'm sure the service would have been more friendly, this really did put a dampener on my mums birthday as we stayed in an amazing place the night before where the food was great at half the price.
Stayed here with my partner as a last minute night away, the hotel is lovely on the outside as are the gardens but the inside is old and quite run down, the corridors are that of a high school and have a fusty old smell about them, our room 133 although clean was very poor quality, the bath was stained and walls had mark after mark on them, it was very old fashioned which matched the rest of the place.... it has a look of a hotel coming to its end, considering the price it is to stay here its not good value at all!
Stayed on business for 2 nights and found everything to be nice! The bed was comfy and nice (2 singles pushed together) had it been a double or king size it would be great. The bathroom was nice - had it been more modern it would be great. The room was big - very big and nice - ! Had the TV been a proportionate size and the plumbing quieter - it would have been great! The food was nice as was the breakfast and bar service had there not been a 56 seater coach party in just before us it would have been great!. All in all it is Nice and I would definitely stay there again. The Gardens are fantastic and the setting is wonderful. there is a gym and pool but we did not use it but I am sure it would be.........Nice!
