          Loved the setting of the castle and how peaceful it was,would definitely go back.

          the restaurant was a bit expensive

        • Older travelers

          great location, ocean out the front window - convenient to the Giant's Causeway, Old Bushmills and Dunluce castle to the west and Carrickfergus and Belfast to the east and south.

          Free wifi would be nice - better temperature control in the hotel - the room was too hot.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          I thought bar prices for wine cider and food was too expensive. I arrived at midnight and it was £5 for a small glass of red wine, £5 for a very basic small ham sandwich, and around £4 for a cider, so I felt it was too expensive and choose alternative locations for further food and drink during my stay.

        • Couple

          The foyer was beautiful, and the evening meal was first class. The gardens are lovely, and the history surrounding the castle, especially the ghost, makes for a more enjoyable stay.

          I was very disappointed to find that the king size bed was, what appeared to be , two beds joined together. I have recently stayed in a budget hotel where the kingsize bed was an actual kingsize bed! I also found the room rather small,or at least much smaller than pictures of the rooms had lead me to believe they would be.

          Luxury and comfort very good.

          Service in restaurant was not very good - waiting time to long.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We stayed one night before getting the ferry back to Scotland in the morning,so, as Larne doesn't have too much to offer, Balygally was very close, and was an excellent alternative. We will definitely return.

          Very pleasant hotel, good food and resonably priced.

        • Single
          10.0

          The outstanding reviews lived up to the actual experience. The staff are very polite and helpful. The rooms are nice, even with a stream running below the window to put me to sleep. The rooms are large and modern, and some overlook the sea. There is also a very nice bar/lounge with cozy chairs next to a fire. The restaurant food is delicious, with an economical 15 pounds 2-course dinner special that comes with a glass of wine. The breakfast is excellent too, though buffet-style and not cooked to order (which is fine with me). There is free and plentiful parking. The only thing to note is that there is no free wi-fi, which was not unexpected. However, there is no spa or fitness equipment at this location, unlike its sister properties.

          No free wifi.

          Everything was really super and great value for money! We stayed in another more expensive castle in Dungiven the next day and it was a complete dump compared to Ballygally. The location was right next to the sea, breakfast could be brought up to bed, bed and room were huge, comfy and very nice.

          No free wifi and separate cold/hot water taps in bathroom.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The setting was nice, by the sea with pretty gardens. The castle part was small, but added character. Nice comfy rooms, excellent breakfast, good afternoon tea.

          A party occurred in the restaurant while we were there and the noise kept us awake until the wee hours of the morning.

          10.0

          We enjoyed the location of the hotel, the view form our room and the food, unfortunately in the room next door to ours the occupants were having a 'domestic' which lasted all night, so we didn't get a wink of sleep all night!

          The room was lovely, staff were friendly, food was fantastic. There was a lovely atmosphere.

        • Older travelers

          The friendly staff and the location. We stayed overnight on route to Scotland via the ferry from Larne. The location was therefore excellent. The breakfast was good.

          There was a small step outside our room which was not made clear, I.E. it was carpetted the same as the rest of the floor. Unfortunately I fell down this step and badly twisted my ankle. As we were hoping to do some walking in Scotland this caused me some problem. I think the step should be marked in some way.
