Quietly set in woodland on the edge of the Clandeboye Estate, this comfortable modern four star hotel on the edge of Bangor fits in well with its rural surroundings and offers a pleasing alternative for those who do not need to stay in town.
With a welcoming fire and plentiful seating areas, the large foyer creates a good impression that carries throughout the hotel.
The spacious bedrooms are smartly furnished in a clean-lined modern style, with plenty of work space, complimentary wireless internet access and an express check out service among the features appealing to business guests, and in-room entertainment including LCD wide screen TV with satellite stations and a DVD library. Well-finished bathrooms sport Gilchrist and Soames toiletries, and suites have whirlpool baths.
The range of rooms offered includes executive, with extras such as complimentary newspapers; more luxurious and spacious junior suites, and family rooms.
The hotel is a popular wedding venue but events take place in separate conference and banqueting centre, so other hotel guests are not disturbed.
Meals are available in the lobby bar, and the adjoining Clanbrasserie restaurant, where breakfast is also served. There is a general statement of commitment to local sourcing and, although the ambience is more hotel dining room than destination restaurant, it is a pleasant place to eat at the end of a long day.
