Lovely Stay
Pleasant stay. Clean and adherence to COVID protocols so felt safe. Staff very friendly. Nice building with character and. Pretty location with boardwalk nearby. Breakfast good. No other restaurants in immediate area so either the. hotel or a drive to Larne. On the high side for rates, since breakfast not. included but the quality of staff and cleanliness was evident.

Great hotel and location
Lovely overnight at the Ballygally. Coastal Deluxe bedroom was modern and the view was magnificent. Evening meal well presented and reasonably priced. All staff very friendly. It was our wedding anniversary and they had provided 2 lovely cake buns on arrival and some Prosecco before tea, much appreciated and added to an excellent stay. Beach just across the road and early morning swim was invigorating... Thanks

4/5 Good

Travelled with partner, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is set in beautiful grounds overlooking the sea. Bedroom was very large and nicely furnished. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Delicious food. Beautiful sunny day allowed guests the opportunity to use the gardens. The only downside was that the bedroom was very hot and there were only only small high windows that could be opened and there were not enough seats/shade outside in the garden area to accommodate guests in the garden. Perhaps a fan in the bedroom and some patio chairs, tables and sun umbrellas in the gardens could be provided to enhance guest comfort. All in all an excellent stay and highly recommended.
