Three miles south of the city centre sits this sprawling hotel overlooking the picturesque Lagan Valley Regional Park and a stone's throw from charming Shaws Bridge and the Neolithic Giant's Ring. The bedrooms are four-star standard, but it's the host of conference suites, huge ballroom and extensive leisure facilities that make this hotel a businessperson's dream. The Green Room offers great food and the famous Sunday Carvery. While the more relaxed River Bar is sitting pretty for bistro dining and The Spice Club cooks up some of the city's finest Indian cuisine. Being away from the centre, parking is free and plentiful: and isn't it nice to wake up to birdsong instead of bustling traffic?
