Positive Reviews

Helpful, accommodating staff wins over guests.

The staff of the hotel and on-site restaurant were described numerous times by guests as being friendly, always helpful, a warm reception upon arriving, and great service by the bar employees as well. Guests raved about the friendly receptionist, and the welcoming bar staff as well.

Conveniently located to shopping, airports, golf and more.

Guests of the Strangford Arms Hotel were thrilled at how close the hotel is to attractions like Castle Espie, the Exploris Aquarium, and Mount Stewart, as well as being a short drive away from famous golf courses (including the renowned Holywood course), golf clubs like Scrabo, and also restaurants, pubs, and cafes.

Excellent, upscale restaurant cuisine, delicious breakfast.

The hotel’s on-site restaurant and bar—Lewinters Bistro, Bar & Restaurant—serves up fresh cuisine using local produce, and guests raved about the complimentary breakfast, the friendly staff/waiters, the traditional roast beef dinner, and a classy, yet relaxing atmosphere.

Negative Reviews

Somewhat noisy; crowded on weekends.

A few guests complained of the noise level and crowded conditions of the hotel and restaurant, especially on weekends during live entertainment in the bar/lounge area. Guests advise booking a room further away from the hotel’s bar area to ensure a quieter night’s sleep.

Poor bathroom facilities, weak shower stream as well.

The en-suite bathrooms of the hotel were mentioned by a few guests as being dirty, having water on the floors, a weak shower stream, and some guests were displeased with the shower/bath stalls.

Several suites have no windows, were hot and stuffy.

Although the hotel underwent a recent renovation, guests still pointed out their displeasure that several of the hotel’s suites do not feature windows, and at night can become quite stuffy and warm, especially during the warmer months.
