9,6 Excellent
Pros: Marlagh lodge is highly recommended! It is is a truly lovely place to stay, with a special ambiance and hospitality! Robert is a fabulous host (ably assisted by the lovely Penny- sorry if I’ve remembered her name wrong), really friendly and helpful. Robert is a great cook, the breakfast was delicious, especially the warm breads and the stewed plums and good coffee, which is crucial! The decor in both the room we stayed in (the blue room) and the whole house was fabulous, so beautiful and true to the period of the stunning property. The photos can’t really do it justice. It was also spotlessly clean. Thank you so much Robert, we hope one day to return!

Overview Reviews
Located in Ballymena, Adair Arms Hotel is within a 15-minute drive of ECOS Environmental Centre and Junction One International Outlet Shopping Centre. Free self parking is available onsite.
7,9 Good
Pros: We stayed here for a wedding which was at the Leighinmohr House and the location of Adair Arms was brilliant, it was only 5 mins in a taxi. The beds were really comfy as well which is always a plus.
Cons: I would just say the interior would need an update, the outside of the hotel looks lovely and modern but inside is a bit more dated. Also there was limited parking at the hotel. We had to wait for someone else to pull out before we could get a space as there was a lot of spaces blocked off due to road works.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We liked the spacious room .and comfy bed . We especially loved the bath in the bathroom in addition to the shower . It was very central to the town . Food was served all day which saved us having to find a restaurant when we arrived tired .

5,8 Okay
Pros: The location was central to everything that we needed and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was lovely both in the bar and at breakfast.
Cons: The comfort in the rooms was not as expected for the price that was paid. The rooms were very stuffy and the mattresses although reassured by staff that they were new, were extremely uncomfortable with the feel of springs coming through. We asked to switch rooms which was accommodated but the issue with the beds was the same we got to the point that we had to ask for extra bedding to try and pad it out. I was a bit disappointed by this and when staff were told it seemed like this was not the first time they had heard this complaint

Overview Reviews
Located in Ballymena, Londonderry Arms Hotel is by the sea, within a 15-minute drive of Glenarm Castle and Lurig Mountain. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Great location by harbour. Very good breakfast. Friendly staff. Authentic, original old style hotel with plenty of character . Good sized bedroom.
3,3 Mediocre
Cons: Our original room was given away. In terms of cleanliness and decor, the place seemed old and haphazard: e.g. when we arrived in our room there was a dirty tissue on the floor of the bathroom, many of the doors seemed dirty and in need of repainting. Breakfast was a sad and measly affair. Overall, this hotel reminded me of what hotels used to be like in the 90's. This could be a nice hotel if it was redecorated and cleaned and the staff/management made more of an effort at hospitality.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Excellent customer service and exceptional breakfast
Cons: The searchlight from the Primary School opposite was a distraction to sleep during the night
7,5 Good
Pros: Only checked in then straight to a wedding. Friendly staff. Night porter, Dermot, on our return was amazing. The whole history of the hotel, the town and the Glens was fascinating. I would go back just to listen to him,
Cons: Breakfast was included but the full Irish was delivered within minutes of being ordered suggesting it was not made to order. Tasted OK but definitely dry and over-cooked. Bit of a shame.
6,7 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed, old charm hotel with original sash windows. Freshly cooked breakfast and friendly morning staff.
Cons: Service in restaurant 1st evening was awful. Waited ages for order and had to go to bar for drinks. Need to improve this alot based on prices and rate we paid for room. Ate out 2nd night locally for a much better service. Hotel breakfast staff friendlier and helpful. Tv in room very small based on large room .
5,0 Okay
Pros: Not a lot needs a good painting and new beds
Cons: Not a lot
7,5 Good
Pros: The staff were fantastic, the breakfast service was prompt and breakfast was really good, the location of the hotel can't be faulted. We enjoyed our stay overall.
Cons: The room we were in (205) needs a bit of a facelift. The fan was full of dust so we couldn't turn it on even though it was a warm couple of nights, the windows needed to be cleaned, the blinds needed to be cleaned, and some of the light fixtures were broken. Lovely place but needs a spring clean badly.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The view.
