Came here for an afternoon tea with 2 family members and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great value for the amount of food you get, and there was an option to add Prosecco which was nice. (I think it was £19 with the Prosecco.) We had to get a lot of it boxed up to take home and the staff were...

3 of us went for lunch mid week, reviewed menu, options looked good-however I realised that the pulled pork was served on a brioche bun, I don't like sweet bread. I mentioned that to the server not a problem seemed they could serve it on a plain bread roll, yumm! It went downhill from there, when served it was a...

Visiting grandparents allowed my wife and I a weekend away. We decided to visit Bangor and we were very happy with the Salty Dog hotel. Price was great, easy to find and park and an excellent location. The restaurant was reasonably priced and had a good selection. Within a 10 minute walk you can find tons of other options at...

The staff were very friendly and we were personally shown to our superior room which we'd booked for one night. Our spacious room was at the front of the hotel so we had great views of Bangor Bay and beyond. The room was well furnished with a lovely comfortable bed but there were a few little things that given that...

We left it quite late to book a hotel for nye and managed to find this, I was slightly concerned when I realised it was a dog friendly hotel, however there was no need as you wouldn't guess this apart from seeing a dog walking in or out! We stayed in a standard room, but I would recommend paying extra...

This is really worth a visit. Set right by the pier, it's got that good blend of smartness and warm atmosphere. I had the best fish and chips I've eaten in a long time here. The staff are warm and friendly but the poor bar service keeps me from giving it a 5. No drinks order taken, one drink (only...

Recommend The Salty Dog as a great place to stay. Very welcoming owner who runs a very friendly team. Hotel is attractively designed and has wonderful views of the bay. We had a standard room which was excellent and had everything in it a visitor would need. A visit to Bangor would be incomplete without either staying at The Salty...

Just back from a two night stay in The Salty Dog. Such an enjoyable stay from start to finish. We had our dog with us and ALL the staff were dog lovers. Everywhere was very clean even in the doggy area. We planned this trip for a break away with our dog but it surpassed our expectations, great hotel for...

My partner and I spent a few days in County Down and we were over the moon to discover the Salty Dog. What a fab place. First of all the staff are just so friendly and helpful and that made us return on our second night but it was also just a chilled out place to spend our evening's. The...
