Nice hotel but very noisy fans

Posted 19-Jul-2015
Pros: The hotel setting was in nice grounds and very nice inside
Cons: Heating pipes that banged all night and fans that never stopped
Location: Shopping and visited the zoo and gardens
Hotel was fine and staff were friendly. Unfortunately we got no sleep due to very noisy fans and heating pipes that didn't stop all night. They would need to get this sorted.

One night in Culloden

Hotel was lovely and charming. Reception was not very friendly but the waiting staff and spa staff were excellent! I would definitely stay again and recommend.

Best 5 star by a country mile

Posted 20-Apr-2015
One of the most luxurious, well presented and friendly 5 star hotels we have ever stayed in. My girl was pleasantly surprised that we were rubbing shoulders with the cast of a games of thrones when we were there. Apart from star spotting the culloden is something very special, the staff were very attentive and the grounds including bar and restaurant separate from the main hotel but set in the hotels beautiful gardens catered for every request we asked of them. Great stay had by all.

Is it a 5 Star Bathroom

Posted 31-Mar-2015 on Hotels
I've stays at the Culloden a few times, on each previous occasion I had a room in the main house and not in the newer building. My observation is the bathroom in the new building is far to small for 5 Star hotel and it didn't allow for 2 people in the bathroom getting ready, the main house is far better

Perfection in a Castle

Posted 20-Mar-2015 on Hotels
stunning views, stunning service, amazing hotel, absolutely wasted on me for business as this would be so perfect for a romantic night away or a relaxing lazy day. I will be back with my wife.

Brilliant hotel with friendly & helpful staff.

Posted 16-Feb-2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: The hotel itself is set in nice surrounding grounds, a short drive will take you to Bangor.
If you want a nice relaxing break this is the place to go. We came away feeling full of energy & very relaxed.

Unusual Hotel

Posted 08-Dec-2014
Pros: Umm. It's got some original features that are lovely but it's not a delight to behold. Just seemed generally cold or too hot. Didn't visit the Spa bit
Cons: A degree of control over the room temperature? The quilts are way too hot for normal temperatures.
Location: There is a pub in the grounds selling OK food. Helens Bay is lovely for a walk.
Turned up in person to an empty hotel. They offered us a very expensive rate so we went to the car and booked with Expedia and saved £30 with an upgraded room. No breakfast though. The room was boiling when we went in so we turned down the radiator but it just got hotter and hotter. We informed reception before we went out for a lovely walk in Helens Bay. When we got back they had just opened the windows! As the hotel is by a busy road the noise was intolerable. We told them again and got moved to a nearby suite. This was freezing. However the quilts on the beds are about 50 tog so I spent the night battling with it sweating or shivering. Not sure I would want to stay here again.
