Culloden Estate & Spa in Belfast, Ireland

Although it's just 6 miles east of Belfast's vibrant city center, Culloden Estate & Spa feels like a secluded country retreat. This Irish landmark was originally built as an official palace for the Bishop of Down, and is tucked into 12 acres of gardens and woodland. With their cozy country house furnishings, many guestrooms and suites gaze over the grounds toward Belfast Lough. Savor fresh Irish produce at Mitre Restaurant, and enjoy a convivial drink with fellow guests in the garden setting of the Cultra Inn. To soothe away the cares of modern life, Elysium Spa offers an indulgent selection of specialized treatments.

Right in your neighborhood, you'll discover a wealth of enticing activities, beginning with the Royal Belfast Golf Club. Offering privileged tee times to guests, this 18-hole parkland course, founded in 1881, is Ireland's oldest golf club. Also, right on your doorstep is the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, a re-creation of a northern Irish village from a century ago, complete with transplanted historic houses, schools, churches and mills. Enriching your holiday even further are the boutiques and antique shops of Holywood, the seaside pleasures of Bangor and the bars, theaters and lively music scene of Belfast.

Booked afternoon for 3 of us for a birthday treat. Hotel is lovely and staff are very friendly. Very ornate room the tea was served in but because there was three of us we couldn't have a window table as apparently those are only set up for tables for two or four! This is a four star hotel it's surely not beyond them to either add a setting or take one away. For ÂŁ29 each we got three finger sandwiches, two small scones and four small pastry and several pots of lukewarm tea, when we could find a waitress to bring fresh tea. The tea drips down the outside of the spout leaving a stain which they cannot clean when they are refilling it. Very disappointing with the whole experience

This was such a delightful experience and it would be a very long list if I were to mention everything and everyone contributing to making it so. From our initial check in everything just flowed so smoothly and the attention to the smallest detail was so perfect that we felt truly happy to be there. The Christmas Package had been very well thought out and it was evident that a lot of preparation was necessary to make this such a success. The staff were all very well briefed in order to provide the best possible experience for their guests and certainly they gave the impression that everything was effortless. It's lovely to find staff so happy in their work and it made for a lovely atmosphere throughout our stay. The standard of food and service at this busy time was wonderful. Executive Chef Paul McKnight served up a really varied and perfectly cooked menu.The staff in the Mitre and the lounges were well aware of everything on offer and happy to explain where necessary and the addition of the Holywood Suite as a breakfast venue was a master stroke - exquisitely set up. All the departments played their part in making this a wonderful Christmas. Reception, Concierge services, Housekeeping and all of those who served us - thank you so much. The many extras like the beautifully decorated tree in our room and all the gifts made it feel like a home from home. Many thanks to Eoin O'Sullivan and staff.

After a couple of recent very poor experiences, we were kindly offered a complimentary DB&B for my wife and me which we enjoyed last Friday. From start to finish our experience was what one would expect from the Culloden: * Friendly and efficient check-in * Amazing room * Most enjoyable three-course dinner * Top class service - especially by Jade who was the star of the show * Great selection at breakfast although, have to say, the breakfast service was a little careless * Efficient and friendly check-out All in all, a MOST enjoyable end to our holiday break. Will we be back? A resounding 'YES'!! Well done, this time, to Team Culloden!

I must admit I was spoilt this year for my birthday. Our visit to the Culloden is by far the best experience I have had in a while. Upon arrival we where greeted by the front desk extremely helpful and friendly. We had been lead to our room by the porter and provided us with details about the hotel very courteous and amiable. Well what can I say I am actually lost for words when we had been introduced to our room. It was exceptional, crisp clean white linen, complimentary water and espresso machine just topped it of for me especially as I can’t usually wait until breakfast. Myself and my wife attended the pool and spa to relax in the steam room, jacuzzi and meddle shower so relaxing just before we had dinner. Our dining experience was exceptional, at no point did we feel rushed, and the waiter and waitress including the bar staff where very pragmatic and instrumental in their service. I must say that I had one of the best night stays in a hotel and if I must say it is by far the best hotel I have stayed in comparison to their 5 star competitors. I will certainly be booking again I would say to treat my wife for her birthday but it will be more of a treat to myself. To top my stay of breakfast the next morning was amazing with the Continental Breakfast and on our stay our breakfast was cooked to order. Again the waitress staff flawless in their service. The breakfast manager enquiringly of our stay and taking an interest in how we felt really added that personal touch and was of kindred spirit. Food was exquisite and fresh. Lastly and the most depressing part of our stay and that was Check Out. The girls at the desk were bubbly and efficient in their service and had a good balance with a pleasant farewell. It really was a shame to leave. We are now looking forward to our next stay and break away in April. Thank you for a fantastic experience an making my Birthday a memorable one. Darryl

My husband & I enjoyed another great stay at the Culloden Estate & Spa over Christmas this year. We have stayed several times in the past, and as always we were greeted warmly by the staff upon arrival and made to feel right at home. This was all the more appreciated after a long, tiring journey from the States. Our room was clean, the bed linens as white & crisp as always, and the service was amazing when we had any special requests throughout our stay (Mark, the Concierge and Sarah at Reception were wonderful). It is such an elegant setting, so private and not like some of the more active & busy, more commercial-feeling hotels. This is truly like staying at a private estate, with the service to go along with it, and the beds are the most comfortable we’ve ever experienced anywhere! We will definitely go back again if our future travels allow!
