Dunadry Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were told Dunadry Hotel was a 'posch' place for dinner in Antrim - the hotel is stuck in the 80s and needs a major revamp to bring it up to present day. It also gives an impression of being unclean because the décor and furnishings are too old - particularly in the restaurant. The clientele was resembling a retirement home which probably explains its outdate décor. The food presentation and menu again need to be streamlined and upgraded. Very bland, basic and uninteresting... Again no healthy options for kids just usual chips and ketchup junk... The waitress was unable to recommend a wine, didn't know what sauvignon blanc was what oaked wine means.... probably not well trained or capable of serving hotel giests adequately. Give this place a big miss....

Recently the Bistro as a group of 4. Although very busy and having not booked, we were still able to be accommodated. All of us enjoyed beautiful starters and mains followed by coffees. The hotel has been given a bit of a refresh since our last visit and the place looks really well. Friendly staff and professional service as always. Looking forward to returning again soon!

We have enjoyed our visit. The Rarin' to Go Irish musicians last night in the bar were wonderful! This was a good location for us, 15 minutes from Belfast Center, quiet and easy. The room was large, bed comfy, prices reasonable.

Just stayed for two nights with a coach tour: Good food and very generous portions - breakfast a bit well done on the second day. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable - although the hotel is quite dated and some areas ready for an update. Pleased that although there was a wedding it was quiet in the bedrooms. Enjoyed the entertainment on both nights. Swimming pool looked okay but opening hours at the weekend very short we arrived at 17.15 to find pool about to close at 17.30. Also you need a swimming hat.

We have come to Dunadry several times over the years, and even celebrated my sons christening here. So before we headed to the airport, we decided to pop in for a sandwich. Well, we wish we hadn't bothered. We ordered one sandwich for my son, and two toasted sandwiches. We eventually got our food after quite the wait. Well, you would never have known that the toasted sandwiches had even seen a toaster/grill! Stone cold, so we sent them back immediately. Got them back and they were a little better but still a huge disappointment. When we received the bill at the end we were asked by the Manager if everything was ok. We told her it had not been ok and said what had happened, and she just shrugged it off and said "oh well, maybe you'll give us another try in the future!" Not likely!!! Such a shame, but so many locals have been telling us not to bother as it's gone downhill...if only we had listened to them.

Sunday Carvery at the Dunadry is very good - the place is relaxed, and a great location, and all are friendly and helpful, and the food is of a high order. The range for Starters is big , and for mains we had beef and ham, and ham and pork, there were 2 of us, and the flavours were varied, in a good way, and very enjoyable. Sitting with our back to the river, and in the lovely setting, and with great food, hrad to beat.

Was looking for my girlfriend and I to get away for the night for out 2nd Anniversary and the Dunadry seemed fair enough away from Belfast to enjoy some silence but also close enough for the drive. The room is one of the biggest I have stayed in with really pleasant and helpful staff, able to suggest some good places for dinner (other than the hotel), and arrange our taxis as well. On arrival we had afternoon tea,which as a 6'3" 115kg man, was genuinely shocked when we couldn't finish all the treats. The gardens were lovely for a post food dander and we even got to take in some of the sights of a wedding that was taking place there. All in all it was a pleasant stay and I will be back again.

We have stayed and eaten here quite a few times, but the most recent was on the night of our wedding. The staff at Dunadry Hotel went above and beyond, upgraded us to a suite because it was our wedding night and the treatment we got from everyone we encountered was just beyond pleasant. We returned to the hotel quite late and decided to have a few drinks at the residence bar and the staff member on night duty was so helpful and friendly, nothing was a problem to him. Some of the best customer service I have experienced! The hotel itself is just lovely, the grounds and the rooms. The suite we stayed in was massive, with a separate sitting area and a beautiful view of the garden. We were sorry to only stay one night. The bed was so comfortable and we couldn't fault a single thing. Breakfast again was lovely, and the service great. We didn't have dinner on this occasion but we have had their Sunday carvery before and it is divine. I know the hotel has recently changed hands, so I just hope they keep up the same level of service that we experienced.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Dunadry hotel and I've enjoyed both visits. I'll probably stay here again when I'm next working here. The staff cannot be faulted. Without exception, they are friendly and welcoming, always happy to help in any way they can. The food is very good and reasonably priced, for a hotel. Drinks are the usual extortionate price that all hotels charge but no more than that. Breakfast is a buffet and offers something for everybody's taste, whether you want a feast or just some fruit or cereal. I've been in two different rooms, in different parts of the building. Similarities are that they are clean and comfortable. A bit tired and dated but, hey, I kind of like that. A bit of character doesn't hurt. Difference was the shower. Most hotels recognise that customers will forgive many things, as long as they have a comfortable bed, good food and a good shower. The first room I was in had a good shower. In this, different part of the building, not so good. Not bad enough to feel there was something wrong with it, just lack of water pressure. Whinge over. The hotel is set in beautiful, well maintained, grounds and has a pleasant Country House feel to it. The restaurant is very nice, with a conservatory seating area if you like that. The Copper bar has a clubhouse feel which is very relaxing, and helps you forget how much you're paying for your drinks. :-) There is an adjoining swimming pool, spa and gym which residents have the free use of. I visited on this occasion just to have a try of the pool and spa. It was nice, but I was a bit surprised to find that it is necessary to buy a swimming cap in order to use the pool. Not sure why that is, but it was only a couple of quid, and as everyone in the pool is wearing them, you don't feel such a clown. I had a look in the gym which was fairly busy and seemed to be well equipped and not cramped for space. Altogether, a pleasant place to stay, reasonably priced, with beautiful grounds and excellent staff, both front of house and housekeeping.

Rather a nice hotel. It's hard to explain really as there is the original building with what could only be described as a 1970's style extension but it looks and feels solid. Painted brick walls and solid wood door frames make for an old fashioned feel but didn't look worn out. Its characterful rather than modern and on the whole I liked it. There was the old fashioned style hotel radio in the room, didn't work mind but it just looked retro rather than a piece of furniture that needed replacing. Food nice. I personally sat in the bar but there is a restaurant and a nice pub just down the road. Lovely garden with a little river side stroll. Minimal airport noise too although you can hear the trains. Nice relaxing stay when working away for 4 nights.
