Beautiful Riverside Location
I rate this hotel very highly. The location is superb and the staff were very helpful and attentive. The hotel has plush furnishings and decor and the grounds are immaculately manicured The only shortfall I could mention is that we stayed during the three hottest days of the year, (for Northern Ireland, probably the hottest this century!), but there was no air con in the rooms or the rest of the hotel as far as I could tell. The restaurants are excellent, serving a wide range of high quality food by efficient and attentive staff. The River Room restaurant, (which had allegedly been awarded 3 AA rosettes), however, was not to my taste as the portions were very small, the flavours did not really fit together well in my opinion, presentation was too fanciful with some items on the plate difficult to identify and the dishes were over priced. I appreciate many will disagree with me on this one and enjoy the "gormet" experience more than the actual food but this restaurant was not for us. For those wanting 'real' food pleasantly served, use the 'Gillies' restaurant or the 'Fratelli' italian restaurant on site which are excellent.
